PETALING JAYA - Celebrity chef Datuk Fazley Yaakob says he had always prayed for his mother-in-law, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, to accept him and his wife Datin Azrene Soraya Abdal Aziz as family.

Fazley said and he and his wife, Azrene, who is estranged from Rosmah, had never harboured ill feelings towards his mother-in-law and had always regarded her as their biological mother.

"My wife and I have never kept any hatred because as daughter and son-in-law, she is still my mother (in-law) and my wife's biological mother," he told mStar Online, The Star's Bahasa Malaysia news portal.

"Throughout our 11 years of marriage, we have always prayed for Rosmah to open her heart to our family," Fazley said.

(Seen in the picture: The famous handshake that all of those she despises has encountered. Looks like I wasn’t spared.) . She was the one who introduced me to her daughter and matchmade us together, but when things got serious and i asked for her daughter’s hand in marriage she said no. Then she asked her witch doctors if we were good for each other. Her witch doctor said, “The boy is good for the girl and vice versa, but your power won’t work on them, his family has too many religious members of the family. For every son she has as a result of this union, your power will decrease” Guess what? All hell broke lose right after! Here is my wifes side of her story, about her own mom whom she still love so dearly. Sadly, its only one sided:. . Today marks the end of an era of tyranny that many have prayed for. I grew up looking up to these two individuals, loving them, respecting them. There was a time when i would have walked through the fires of hell and back for them. As i grew older, i saw the selfishness and greed of one above all else. I experienced firsthand emotional, physical and mental abuse at the hands of the one on the left. I witnessed firsthand the same abuse she caused onto the one on the right. . I witnessed many trespasses, deals and handshakes these two made for the benefit of power and to fuel their appetite for greed. The amount of money in briefcases exchanging hands and being spent like water not for the benefit of the rakyat but to be spent like water on jewels, bribery of officials and used in the pursuit of gaining more power. Shamans, witch doctors, aesthetic doctors and the like walking the pathways of my home for one reason or another but mostly to bring to heel and gain dominion over their peers and over their family members, even to cause harm on those who were audacious enough to cross them. The numerous offshore accounts opened to launder money out of the country for their personal spending . 👆👆👆 SWIPE LEFT FOR MORE

Fazley and Azrene were married in 2007 but the marriage apparently did not receive Rosmah's blessing.

Azrene is Rosmah's daughter from her previous marriage to Abdul Aziz Nong Chik, before she got married to former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

Bismillahirahmanirahim. Today marks the end of an era of tyranny that many have prayed for. I grew up looking up to these two individuals, loving them, respecting them. There was a time when i would have walked through the fires of hell and back for them.

I witnessed many trespasses, deals and handshakes these two made for the benefit of power and to fuel their appetite for greed. I witnessed the side deals made behind the back of the one on the right. The amount of money in briefcases exchanging hands and being spent like water not for the benefit of the rakyat but to be spent like water on jewels, bribery of officials and used in the pursuit of gaining more power. Shamans, witch doctors, aesthetic doctors and the like walking the pathways of my home for one reason or another but mostly to bring to heel and gain dominion over their peers and over their family members, even to cause harm on those who were audacious enough to cross them. The numerous offshore accounts opened to launder money out of the country for their personal spending. The steel safes full of jewels, precious stones and cash amassed. Being made a cash mule or even crystal shoes mule carrying these quietly into and out of the country was no fun either, let me tell you. The countless attempts to sell me into marriage to the highest bidder or even persons with the highest position that will be able to help them gain political and social advantage. The greed, avarice and pride that grew with each step that was gained closer to the top position. Nothing could stop their reign of terror and yet i stayed out of loyalty and duty. When this terror was then focused on me and became too unbearable a burden to carry, i decided to leave. Thus began my self imposed exile from this unfortunate family.

"For me, it is a responsibility to share. It is not intended to find fault or disgrace any party," he said.

"In my late father's will, he requested me to tell the truth about me, my wife and him at the right time.
