Another woman has come forward alleging that Singaporean YouTuber Eden Ang harassed her. The woman, ex-gymnast Nicolette Lim, wrote in a Facebook post yesterday that she met Ang on a drama set where the pair exchanged phone numbers. Lim claims that Ang contacted her regarding a role, but his texts allegedly became more and more sexually charged:

“I met Eden on a drama set and he asked if I was keen to act in his videos. We exchanged contact numbers via Facebook and it started out with a call from him, explaining how production works; nothing wrong there.
“However, it progressed to messages like “You should learn how to sit properly, I can see your underwear that day” (referring to the day I met him on set), “You were wearing a beige underwear right?” “But I can see you shave” “So you like to be clean huh?”
“He also knew I was a gymnast from my Facebook photos and told me to send photos of me in splits, to which I felt uncomfortable and told him “they are on Facebook.” He probably viewed my photos and said “I can see your pubic hair.”
“He then offered me to go to his house to try out for a ‘role’ where I’m required to wear a mini skirt and g-string. When I told him that I do not have a g-string and have never done something like this before, he said “I can bring you to buy a g-string” and “teach you how to wear.” He also asked me to send photos of the skirts I have at home and I stupidly did, which he then commented “not short enough.””

Lim said that she declined, claiming that her mother did not allow her to participate in the shoot. She added that she was relieved when Ang apparently stopped messaging her after that.

Lim also revealed that she deleted all the messages between Ang and herself. She added that the reason she is revealing this now, even without hard evidence, is because she does not want more young girls to be harassed by Ang:

“At that point in time, I just wanted the disturbing conversation to end so I used my mother’s name to reject the ‘role’ he was offering. I was relieved when he stopped messaging after. Since I wasn’t going to expose him and keeping the conversation meant a constant reminder of my stupidity (this is a personal feeling), I deleted ALL messages.
“Before anyone jumps into conclusion that I’m doing this for attention or fame, please let me explain that I’m sharing my story without any hard evidence because I do not want Eden Ang to continue harassing more girls, and also to give support to others who have very bravely opened up about their experiences.”

Lim’s claims follow another girl’s claims last week that Ang had inappropriately touched her. A friend of the alleged victim wrote online that the girl tried to seek help from the police but was turned away and allegedly blamed for her part in the incident since the way she was dressed on that day made it seem like the incident was consensual.

The Singapore Police Force debunked the friend, Kuroe Kun’s allegations this week and clarified that the investigating officer did not turn the alleged victim away and that the officer conducted his duties professionally.

Interestingly, the Force also revealed that the 18-year-old “has not been forthcoming in her accounts to the Police and has yet to make a police report, despite our continual efforts to reach out to her.”

The alleged victim in that case has since identified herself as Instagram user Lilith. Lilith said that she identified herself to “set the record straight” and claimed that everything Kun alleged was true. She added that she will file a police report over the matter soon:

“Hey everyone. My name is Lilith, and I am the victim in the Eden Ang scandal that is currently going on. I haven’t said anything so far because i’ve been scared. no, terrified by what speaking up would mean..for my safety, for my dignity, for my family and for my friends. But enough is enough. 
“It has recently come to light that there had been some discrepancies in the post that my friend had put out. I am here to set the record straight. Everything she said about Eden is true. He did touch me after me repeatedly telling him no, both online and offline. I will be filing a police report soon and will be unable to further comment on this issue.
“I encourage every girl out there who may feel the same way as i do, to please, speak out. Even if my coming out with this leads to being harassed and my safety being compromised, if I give courage to even just ONE other girl to stand up for what is right, this all be worth it. thank you for the support most of you have given me. I hope this step I take will be a step for change.”

Ang categorically denied the “malicious allegations” against him, as detailed in Kun’s post, and has filed his own police report over the matter about one week ago. In a subsequent statement on Sunday, Ang asserted that his conscience is clear.

He added that he is fully cooperating with the authorities and said that he is “seeking legal counsel against parties who continue to intentionally aggravate and hurt me and my loved ones with these malicious accusations.”
