Actress and singer Kim Liza has stirred up some showbiz envy after investing US$500,000 to build a guest house in downtown Phnom Penh.

The 23-year-old beauty claimed that the LISA guest house has 20 rooms and cost nearly half a million dollars to build, but denied that the money came from a “special” sponsor.

“It is not money I’ve earned from showbiz and international performances...The money came from my father.”

However, some showbiz people have started whispering that her family is likely not as rich as the starlet claims.

She also revealed that she is going to invest an additional half-million dollars to build another guest house as a joint venture with her cousin.
