KUALA LUMPUR: Popular Indonesian singer Syahrini and her entrepreneur husband, Reino Barack, put on a brave front as they made their first media appearance last Sunday after tying the knot at the end of last month.
According to news reports, the couple had been keeping a low profile before the function at the Grand Hyatt in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Looking a little awkward initially while gripping the singer’s hand tightly, Reino, 34, proclaimed with a smile that Syahrini was now his wife.
The two were married at Camii Mosque in Tokyo, Japan, on Feb 27.
Rumours had been circulating that Reino had broken off his five-year relationship with Indonesian actress Luna Maya to be with Syahrini instead.
During the meet with the media, the 36-year-old singer took the opportunity to declare that she did not snatch Reino from anyone.
Explaining that they were both single when they started their relationship, she said: “He was single, I was single, so no problem there. I did not steal anyone’s husband, he was truly a single man at the time.”
Syahrini added that her marriage to Reino was fated and a blessing from God.
