KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysian sex bloggers Alvin Tan and Vivian Lee will be travelling to Singapore to star in a documentary about their lives, after a Kuala Lumpur court grants their application to travel out of the country until early June, reported Malaysian Insider on Monday.

Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court judge Abdul Rashid Daud allowed the controversial duo, better known as "Alvivi", to have their passports back until June 3, the news portal said. The prosecution did not object to their application, but reminded them to refrain from commenting on their ongoing cases while in Singapore. 

Singapore production house Xtreme Media confirmed with The Straits Times that it has invited the couple to share about the lives in Singapore in a documentary.

Orchard Road is said to be among the filming locations, according to The Star newspaper. 

The legal woes for Tan, a former National University of Singapore student, and his partner Lee began after they posted an offensive Ramadan greeting on Facebook last July.

The Malaysian authorities took the duo, infamous for posting their sex videos online, to court for inciting hostility between groups of different faiths, although the charge had been struck out last month on the grounds that it was not applicable to non-Muslims.

Tan and Lee, however, still faces two other charges under the Film Censorship Act and Sedition Act. They were charged for uploading pornographic images on their blog, and sharing an allegedly seditious Ramadan greeting during the Muslim fasting month.
