Former national gymnast comes forward with Eden Ang sexual harassment allegations from way back 2015
Eden Ang sexual harassment allegations don’t seem to be dying down for the meantime as another woman has come forward to add her voice to Lilith’s and Kuroe’s.
In a Facebook post, former National Gymnast Nicolette Lim, 20, has revealed her own negative experience with Eden, saying that he allegedly made inappropriate comments about her.
Take a look at her Facebook post below:
Here is the full text of her post:
Hello, I am Nicolette and I was verbally harassed by Eden Ang in 2015.
I kept mum because I was embarrassed and terrified that people wouldn’t believe me because he is a Social Media Influencer.
But now, I’ve learnt that I should always stand up for what is right, regardless of the other party’s status or position.
I met Eden on a drama set and he asked if I was keen to act in his videos. We exchanged contact numbers via Facebook and it started out with a call from him, explaining how production works; nothing wrong there.
However, it progressed to messages like “You should learn how to sit properly, I can see your underwear that day” (referring to the day I met him on set), “You were wearing a beige underwear right?”
“But I can see you shave”
“So you like to be clean huh?”
He also knew I was a gymnast from my Facebook photos and told me to send photos of me in splits, to which I felt uncomfortable and told him “they are on Facebook.” He probably viewed my photos and said “I can see your pubic hair.”
He then offered me to go to his house to try out for a ‘role’ where I’m required to wear a mini skirt and g-string. When I told him that I do not have a g-string and have never done something like this before, he said “I can bring you to buy a g-string” and “teach you how to wear.”
He also asked me to send photos of the skirts I have at home and I stupidly did, which he then commented “not short enough.”
At that point in time, I just wanted the disturbing conversation to end so I used my mother’s name to reject the ‘role’ he was offering.
I was relieved when he stopped messaging after. Since I wasn’t going to expose him and keeping the conversation meant a constant reminder of my stupidity (this is a personal feeling), I deleted ALL messages.
Before anyone jumps into conclusion that I’m doing this for attention or fame, please let me explain that I’m sharing my story without any hard evidence because I do not want Eden Ang to continue harassing more girls, and also to give support to others who have very bravely opened up about their experiences.
Her alleged encounters with Eden in 2015
In the post above, she details how she had met Eden and how things progressed to a conversation through text that became quite disturbing, as she put it herself.
According to her post, she said that she allegedly met Eden on a drama set and he asked her to try for a role. At first his communications with her were innocent and involved speaking about production.
Things turned darker when he supposedly said inappropriate text messages commenting on how she sat on a chair during the drama. He also allegedly said that he saw what colour of underwear she was wearing.
Afterwards, more conversations allegedly happened where Eden said he wanted her to audition for a role in his home where she would be required to wear a g-string and a skirt.
Eden also allegedly asked her to send him photographs of her during gymnastic splits, after allegedly seeing her Facebook profile that showed she was a national gymnast.
In the end, Nicolette was able to stop the exchanges by using her mother’s name in the conversation.
No hard evidence
According to the same post, Nicolette stressed that she had no evidence of the conversations as she had deleted it before posting her story.
She also said that she felt stupid during the time she had not deleted the messages.
Her goal is to stop Eden from allegedly harassing more girls.
Similarities with Lilith’s story
If you’re familiar with the story of Lilith, the girl that was at the centre of the first accusations against Eden, you’ll notice that there are some similarities with the former’s story and Nicolette.
Nicolette was 18 years old (in 2017) when Eden allegedly made a move on her.
In Kuroe’s original post and Dee Kosh’s video, it can be seen that Eden also allegedly requested Lilith to wear a g-string and a skirt for an appointment. Lilith was Eden’s 18-ear-old personal assistant for a time and the request allegedly happened during her work with him.
Nicolette’s account also mentioned Eden allegedly asking her to wear a g-string and a skirt for an audition in his home.
Accused of jumping on the bandwagon
Nicolette is aware that her post could be seen as attention-seeking and that she could be jumping on a bandwagon against Eden. One Facebook user posted a series of screenshots that showed Nicolette’s tweets during 2015, allegedly when she was handling the matter with Eden:
Her tweets mention Eden only once, and deal more with how she was traumatised by her conversations with the 31-year-old actor. Since Eden allegedly mentioned that he could see her private area when she was doing her splits as a gymnast, she became fearful of other guys.
What do you think of Nicolette’s post? Let us know in the comments!
