“There are news about me and a Socialite by the name of ‘Khun Praew” who came out to say I cancelled an event function”
“Everything that she has said made it seem like she and I are in a relationship and had a fight with each other. She claimed she gave me a gift, being a diamond ring and other things. Some Entertainment newspapers also wrote that I accepted ‘help’ from her”
“The executives from my channel felt this kind of action is like using my name as a mean to promote her business”
“I have never met this woman. I don’t even know her. If she doesn’t stop, I will proceed with taking legal actions”
“The news about her buying me a diamond ring and a plane ticket to dubai is very damaging to me. I can afford to buy my own things, I have a job. As for photos of us going on holidays or displaying any kind of intimacy, please bring them out as your evidence”
“I came out today to speak to the press because I want to protect my dignity”

As a follow up to Aum’s press conference, Hiso Praew also held one the following day to say sorry to Aum from her hospital bed. The socialite fainted from stress.
How long have you been in hospital?
“From the 26th. Since the function at Dailynews. I’ve been feeling exhausted and there’s a rumour to say I’m heart broken but I’m not. I’m more upset because he’s not following the steps that the business held for him”
What did you say to Aum? And what steps?
“My secretary organized it. I wanted to hold a press conference today, I saw Aum’s interview and honestly, I was very upset by his comment saying that I’m leeching off his fame. Aum said he was going to sue me if I don’t stop. When I heard that I was very confused, Aum is the one who broke the promise”
“I want to apologize to him because it was a miscommunication on my secretary’s part. It was her who jeopardized his reputation”
Aum said he has never spoken to you
“I have never spoken to him personally, it was all through my secretary and it seemed okay. It seemed like he accepted to be my presenter and I only just saw the news about us having a relationship, I only saw this today so I came out to hold a press conference too. I apologize for my secretary on the accusations from Aum and his crew. What Aum said was true”
“I’m not an actress, I’m a business woman and I speak from the heart. Whatever my secretary told me, that was what I heard”
What is your relationship to Aum?
“I don’t want any more dramas, how about this, from now on I don’t want to talk about Aum Athichart anymore. I don’t want to jeopardized my reputation this way. What my secretary told me made me happy, Aum accepted my invite through her”
You bought him a ring?
“It’s from my personal admiration for him. I did buy him a ring and I was planning to give the ring to him as a thank you gift at the function”
So Aum hasn’t received anything from you?
“No, nothing at all”
Do you still admire him?
“From now on I don’t want to talk about Aum Athichart anymore. Let’s just say because of Aum, I fired my secretary. My secretary told me, Aum is open, do you want to talk to him and I said, okay, invite him”
According to the news, this is a publicity stunt for your business
“I swear to all things that are sacred, this information is not true. I don’t need to leech off anyone for publicity”
