SINGAPORE - Actor Ridhwan Azman of movie Ah Boys To Men fame has admitted to and apologised online for hitting and slapping his girlfriend.
The incident appears to have taken place around last Thursday, according to the 19-year-old's Twitter posts.
He has since apologised close to 10 times on the microblog for his actions.
In his post on Saturday, titled "I Love This Girl", he wrote that "I know my mistake", and "there's no reason why anyone should hit girls".
Pictures online of the alleged incident show Ridhwan's 18-year old girlfriend Luna Woo with red welts on her cheek, and him lying spread-eagled on a grass patch.
It is uncertain how their dispute came about.
According to screengrabs of Luna's SMSes to her friends, she had been crying and saying that she did not want to go with him to meet his friends.
That apparently angered Ridhwan, who "hit", "slapped", "pushed", and "strangled" her before he lay down on a grass patch and refused to budge, the messages said.
