KUALA LUMPUR: The alleged owner of an entertainment blog, being sued by singer Hattan's ex-wife for RM1 million over a defamatory article, denied that it was the owner and manager of the Oh Bulan! blog.
The defendant, Driven Communications Sdn Bhd, said this in its defence filed two weeks ago to a suit against it by businesswoman Noorfarashikin Othman.
Yesterday, the plaintiff's lawyer, Nizam Bashir, said that the defendant was also intending to file a striking-out application on the suit.
Nizam said the defendant's lawyer Andrew Suresh had told the court this at the last case management date.
Noorfarashikin, 32, had filed the suit on July 3, naming Driven Communications as defendant.
She claimed that Oh Bulan! had published an alleged defamatory article in January and that several newspapers and blogs had reprinted the article.
Noorfarashikin, a businesswoman, said the article implied that she was an unfaithful wife and someone of poor moral standing with financial difficulties.
