KUALA LUMPUR: Controversial Singaporean singer-actor Aliff Aziz, 28, has been released by police following his recent arrest for allegedly disturbing the peace.
Aliff's mother S Hafiza Basharahil said in a four-minute Instagram video yesterday that Aliff was "okay" and urged the public not to pass judgement against him.
She said: "Things happen for a reason, only God knows best.
“Please refrain from passing judgement against him. Aliff is okay, thanks to support and prayers from friends and fans.
“On behalf of my family, I want to thank all of you for your prayers and well-wishes for him."
The video showed Aliff playing with his son Ayden Adrean, and presenting him with a toy unicorn and a Captain America bag.
He said: "Daddy kacau saja sayang. Daddy tak marah, Daddy sayang."
Hafiza did not reveal when Aliff was released from police custody.
Aliff was arrested by Singapore police in Orchard Road around 6.40am yesterday. He had allegedly fought with a man in the vicinity and was apparently drunk.
The singer-actor was previously married to fellow singer-actress Bella Astillah in 2016. They have a son Ayden, 2.
