Mere weeks after being released from her 18-month prison sentence, DJ Tenashar is making headlines for drug-related offenses–among other things.
According to a report from The Straits Times, 33-year-old local celebrity DJ Tenashar (whose real name is Debbie Valerie Tenashar Long) has been arrested twice in the span of one week on drug charges. She also claimed that she was kidnapped, robbed, and beaten, but had eventually told the media that she was only trolling them.
The first offense happened in Johor, said a report from Stomp, and the second arrest happened in Singapore where drug and trespass charges were levied against her.
According to the report, a hotel attendant who did not wish to be identified said that she was found sleeping on a hotel lobby couch in Berjaya Waterfront Hotel in Johor Bahru on July 5 at 3:30 in the morning. She was not a guest at the hotel.
Upon being woken by the staff (who alleged that she looked high on drugs), she asked to be taken to a police station where she could make a report. There, she said that she was kidnapped, robbed, and beaten the day before in Johor.
The report said, “She said that she was robbed of her wallet, purse, documents, phone, credit cards, NRIC and passport and threatened with a knife. She alleged she was punched in the stomach and suffered injuries to her foot and upper thigh. She had no recollection of how she was kidnapped and said she was thrown into a sewage ditch where there were “rats and snakes”.
