SINGAPORE – Malaysian artist and former telco chief executive officer Jason Lo has taken to social media in response to allegations that he had, among other things, threatened his ex-wife and molested his own children.
On Tuesday (28 May), the former Tune Talk CEO denied the alleged acts in a long, rambling Facebook post. He also threatened to sue The Star newspaper for publishing an “expose” in which it made the sexual abuse claims.
The daily’s report on Saturday, headlined “Ex-CEO allegedly molested own kids”, stated that an unnamed former telco chief had been arrested for trespassing and making threats against his ex-wife.
It also highlighted that the ex-wife had lodged 15 police reports against Lo since 2015 in which she accused him of molesting their children. The pair share joint custody of their two daughters and a son.
Describing the molest claims as “evil”, Lo slammed The Star for its report.
“I applaud risk taking, but not the way lemmings take risks. You think it was daring and bold but unfortunately it was also untrue,” he wrote.
He added: “You saw a video? I saw a video too. Why were there not arrests then? Are you one of the people who believe that the quantity of police reports made correlates to some form of factual proof?”
Lo also claimed that his children had been “subjected to brainwashing” involving them being repeatedly told that “Daddy is a bad man”.
He also shared screenshots of a WhatsApp conversation between himself and a journalist from The Star, along with an image of a 2015 medical report from the University Malaya Medical Centre that appeared to involve one of his daughters.
Jason had a few hit singles like, ‘Evening News’, ‘Operator The Line Is Dead’ taken from his Days Without Dawn album (1999), which also received airplay in Singaporean radio shows.
