Missing songstress is said to be in Singapore

Nobody knows the where-abouts of pop singer Sok Pisey, who has been MIA for more than a month.

Some say she has gone to the US, others say she’s in hospital with a skin disease.

Lay Sokchamroeun, the director of Sunday Entertainment Production, has claimed the singer is in Singapore with family:

“Sok Pisey asked for a three-month break to study aesthetics in Singapore. It is not true that she is hiding because of any kind of severe skin disease.”

But this claim was contradicted by Sok’s close friend, singer Sim Soramaphoum, who said: “Sok Pisey is in Cambodia, but I haven’t seen her lately.” Another source said she had been spotted driving a white Range Rover in Phnom Penh.

Sok is no stranger to controversy.

She was accused of reckless driving after a 2009 car accident killed her mother, her aunt and another relative. Then a woman announced the songstress was sold into adoption as a child for US$200.

Most recently, an alleged sex video of her was leaked.
