A man sued a woman after she refused to date him. He claims she caused him emotional trauma after she told him she wanted to be friends.
The man, who identified himself as K. Kawshigan, threatened legal action against Nora Tan.
However, after agreeing to participate in counseling sessions with him, the lawsuit was put on hold.
In 2016, Tan, who was the founder and director of a drone company, started to reject the advances of the man, who was a director at D1 Racing.
He then filed two lawsuits against him. One of these was filed in a high court and claimed that he was damaged by his actions.
He then filed a second lawsuit with a magistrates’ court, where he asked for a total of $16,700 in damages for violating an agreement they made regarding their relationship.
However, the court dismissed the second suit. According to reports, the deputy registrar of the court, Lewis Tan, said that the court was not an extension of the attempted coercion of Tan.
The court ruled that the two were still friends after they met in 2016, but their relationship ended in 2020 due to miscommunication.
Although Tan thought they were close friends, she told her boyfriend to stop being social and focus on being self-sufficient.
He then sent her a letter, which stated that he would file a lawsuit against her for defamation and emotional distress.
In April last year, she started a harassment case against him.
After she stopped attending counseling sessions, he continued to send her messages.
She cut ties with him on May 19. In July, he filed a high court lawsuit against her, claiming that she had caused him emotional distress and damaged his reputation. The court dismissed the second lawsuit.
The judgment released on Saturday stated that Tan had decided to stand up to his former partner instead of cower and accept his demands.
The case will be heard on February 9.
