8 Nov - Businesswoman Irene Deanna has laughed off ongoing rumours which say that she and married filmmaker Syamsul Yusof are now dating.
The 25-year-old, whose photos with Syamsul at an event went viral recently, stated that the filmmaker is more of her parents' acquaintance and not hers.
"He is just a 'hi bye' acquaintance," she stated.
As for the photo showing the two of them together, Irene stated that it was nothing more than just a photo.
"He came for business purposes. So, we took a photo together because he is an acquaintance of the family. So, I have nothing to comment, because on my part, there is nothing more. All I can do is laugh," she added.
Syamsul Yusof is currently married to Ira Kazar, daughter of actor Kazar Saisi. Previously, he was involved in a divorce battle with ex-wife Puteri Sarah Liyana, who accused him of cheating on her with his now wife.
