"I used to have male friends but I would friendzone them... I was also taller than them. They feared me," she said in a media interview.

"You know in Senior One, Senior Two, you want to be with someone that suits your height. Where a girl is short and you are tall. That's what most students wanted... I was taller than almost everyone in the class," she continued.

"Even those who wanted me would say, I love that girl but she is taller than me. Let me leave her."

She also said she would be interested in some guys but she found it a problem dating someone shorter than her because of the culture that has been predetermined.

Meanwhile, there were speculations that she is dating the singer Eddy Kenzo, but she denied it. She said he is just a family friend.
