KUALA LUMPUR - Singapore-born actor Adi Putra, 32, is under investigation after a businessman in Johor lodged a police report accusing the actor of sending lewd messages and photos to his wife.

"The actor reportedly got to know the woman via Instagram before they got closer and exchanged messages via WhatsApp Messenger," a source told Malaysia's Berita Harian.

"Her actions were discovered by her husband after he saw the actor's photo on her mobile phone, while they were having a Ramadan pre-dawn meal.

"The man then lodged a police report at the Skudai police station in Johor Baru because he was stressed by the content on his wife's mobile phone."
