With investigations into the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal currently ongoing, more details are gradually coming to light.
Most recently, Sarawak Report editor Rewcastle Brown released a tell-all book on the 1MDB expose, while Wall Street Journal (WSJ) journalists are also detailing the scandal in their upcoming book, ‘Billion Dollar Whale‘.
Now, another new issue has come to light from a recent report by Page Six, which claims that infamous businessman Low Taek Jho (aka Jho Low), who is widely believed to have played a role in the 1MDB scandal, gifted Hollywood celebrity Kim Kardashian a USD$325,000 (approx. RM1.3 million) Ferrari.
According to the report, Jho Low allegedly gifted the luxury sports car to her back in 2011 as a wedding gift for when she was married to basketball athlete Kris Humphries. The report claims they had fought over the car during divorce proceedings months later.
While she had reportedly kept the car following the divorce, Kim’s publicist and divorce lawyer did not clarify whether she is still driving it.
In a report from RadarOnline that covered the couple’s divorce in 2012, it was reported that the car was a gift from “a very wealthy Malaysian businessman”. Now, according to sources in the Page Six report, the businessman was revealed to allegedly be Jho Low.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has not disclosed whether or not they will attempt to recover the Ferrari, along with the other gifts Jho Low had reportedly given to his other celebrity friends.
