MsPuiyi Suing Former Business Partner For Allegedly Cheating Her Of RM4.3Mil


Last week, Malaysian influencer and media personality MsPuiyi suddenly dropped a notice that she is filing a civil and criminal lawsuit. After a few days of waiting, we finally have a name to whom the public figure is suing.

According to New Straits Times, the influencer, whose real name is Siew Puiyi, has filed a civil suit against her former business partner, Lai Kai Jian. Kai Jian, also known as Mentos, allegedly cheated Puiyi of approximately RM4.3 million between 2022 and 2023. During a press conference in Penang this morning (22nd April, Monday), Puiyi revealed that Mentos is a 29-year-old man who was introduced to her by a mutual friend in 2019. 


Mentos then began working for her company, PY Empire Sdn Bhd, as a member of the board who also managed investments, payroll and human resources. Last year, the man was asked to settle the tax arrears for PY Empire with the Inland Revenue Board (LHDN) but absconded after he failed to do so. Puiyi said, “I trusted him and gave him the sum, but he did not settle the income tax arrears as instructed. Due to his actions, I have suffered a loss.” 

In addition to the tax arrears issue, Puiyi shared that the man had misappropriated funds from her company since June 2022. The 26-year-old said she filed the civil suit, through her lawyer, at the Penang High Court to reclaim the money. Her lawyer, K Mahendran, said the celeb had lodged a report against Mentos last October – but, unfortunately, there had been no prosecution or update on the case. Mahendran said the civil suit is to reclaim the RM4.3 million, costs and other damages deemed fit by the court.


We hope everything goes well for MsPuiyi in her civil suit.
