The Royal Family of Johor has issued an official statement regarding rumors swirling around the marriage of the Sultan’s only daughter. According to the statement, which was issued on Facebook late on Wednesday night, January 30, rumors that the marriage of Her Highness Tunku Tun Aminah with Encik Dennis Muhammad Abdullah are “malicious and untrue.”
Tunku Tun Aminah Sultan Ibrahim married Dutch-born Dennis Muhammad Abdullah on August 14, 2017, at Istana Bukit Serene in Johor Baru, in a ceremony attended by both their families. Over one thousand guests attended their sitting-in-state ceremony at the Grand Palace later that day.
The statement from the Royal Family also touched on rumors concerning the Princess’ ‘business dealings’ concerning skin care and slimming products.
The Princess debunked the rumors categorically. “My husband and I are happy, contrary to what the rumors say.
I have also not endorsed any product as written by these unscrupulous people who are out to use my name in order to get attention.”
The post indicated that their complaints to Facebook were not taken seriously and that they hope that the social media platform would take “immediate action” against the “malicious content.”
Here is the statement in full:

The recent spate of rumours circulating on social media regarding HH Tunku Tun Aminah’s marriage to Encik Dennis Muhammad Abdullah being on the rocks are malicious and untrue.

In a statement to the Royal Press Office, HH Tunku Aminah voiced her displeasure at rumours circulating on social media about her marriage as well as alleged ‘business dealings’ with skincare and slimming products.
“My husband and I are happy, contrary to what the rumours say.
