PETALING JAYA (THE STAR, SIN CHEW DAILY/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Is Ms Yeo Bee Yin getting married?

Sin Chew Daily reported that the Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change Minister will be marrying IOI Properties Group chief executive Lee Yeow Seng on March 29.

It was learnt that the wedding will be held in Kuala Lumpur.

Ms Yeo's family reportedly will not be holding a wedding reception in their home town in Segamat, Johor.

The news of her marriage broke as Malaysian singers Fish Leong and Michael Wong were said to be invited to perform at the wedding.

IOI Properties' corporate communications team, Mr Lee and Ms Yeo have so far not replied to The Star's query on Friday (Feb 1).

 

The news of Ms Yeo, 36, being in a relationship with Mr Lee, 40, the youngest son of tycoon Lee Shin Cheng, reportedly broke in December last year.

This came after a friend of Ms Yeo uploaded a picture of himself, posing with Ms Yeo and Mr Lee.

He wrote: "Warning: This photo will make many guys cry. Yeo Bee Yin just introduced her special boyfriend to me."

In another photo, Ms Yeo and the man are in the middle of a group of people making the "heart" sign.

Looking bright and cheery in a pink t-shirt during a walkabout in Muar, a district in Johor, on Saturday (Feb 2) to distribute mandarins and Chinese New Year greeting cards, the minister did not deny that wedding bells are ringing.

"I don't know about this," she laughed when asked by the media.

"No comments on personal major life events," she added.
