Model gets nasty text

Model gets nasty text

120524_17c

Model Ly Marina, who has been missing from showbiz since early this year, was threatened again by an anonymous person who sent an insulting text message to the Post and other media.

The long text message reveals Ly Marina’s relationship with a married, high-ranking military official who has allegedly spent at least US$1 million on her.

The text reads: “[The official] spent $1 million on you slut but don’t hope that you can live and spend the money happily.”

The 30-year-old model, who divorced her husband in 2005 after 29 days of marriage, has been engaged to a Cambodian-American man named Sath Chanthorn since 2010.

The engagement, however, has drawn suspicion that it is merely a way to cover her mistress title. Until now, nobody knows where Ly Marina is staying.

Even Dourng Zorida, who owns Cambodia Super Models, the agency that represents Ly Marina, denied knowing anything.

“I don’t know what happened to her at all,” Dourng Zorida said.
