True Rumour !

Me married? Just rumours, says PM. Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi laughed off talk that he has got married, dismissing it as mere rumours.

Speculation that Abdullah had remarried or was about to do so has been rife after recent postings on the Net, especially after one blogger published a fictionalised movie poster with a picture of the Prime Minister posing with a woman.

Subsequently, the blogger posted his “wholehearted apology” which stated, among other things: “At this particular instant, I can only assume that the speculation is true until it is proven beyond reasonable doubt, fictitious.”

“Harap Datuk Seri tak marah. Rumour dalam Internet mengatakan Datuk Seri akan berkahwin (Hopefully, Datuk Seri will not be angry. There are rumours in the Internet saying that Datuk Seri is getting married),” said the reporter.

Abdullah drew laughter from the floor by replying : “You kata ini nak bagi I marah? That’s why you say harap I tak marah? Itu rumours, rumours, rumourslah. (Are you saying this to make me angry? That’s why you say ... hopefully I won’t be angry. They are rumours)

Pressed further on whether he was planning to get married in the near future, Abdullah said laughingly : “Rumours, rumours.”

The exchange of questions ended with the Prime Minister saying once again: “Rumour-lah” with a grin before asking to move on to another topic.

“Ada lagi soalan lain? Siapa lagi nak kahwin? (Any other questions? Who else wants to get married),” he said in jest. (Star March 7th 2007)

Barely three months ago !! And now, "Confirmed! Pak Lah to re-marry"

Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who lost his wife to breast cancer, will remarry this Saturday, the premier's office said in a statement Wednesday.

The announcement comes amid rumours of Abdullah's recent romance with his future wife, Jeanne Abdullah. The premier had in the past refused to comment on the relationship.

The wedding on Saturday is scheduled to take place at the official residence of the prime minister and will be attended by close relatives only, the statement said.

Jeanne was born in Kuala Lumpur on July 29 1953 and is the eldest of four siblings.

She was educated at Sekolah Menengah Assunta and has wide experience in administration and hotel management and has worked as supervisor of the official residence of the deputy prime minister and manager of the Seri Perdana Complex.

Jeanne has two daughters, Nadiah and Nadene.

Khairy Jamaluddin, the son-in-law of the prime minister, says Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's marriage to Jeanne Abdullah is an event that will bring lots of meaning to the family.

Khairy, popularly known as KJ, said he was very happy with the news.

"I, my wife, Nori, my brother-in-law and his wife are happy with the news. We fully support his (Prime Minister's) decision for the marriage.

"We have known auntie Jeanne for a long time and we are very close.

"He (Prime Minister) consulted all of us and we have given our blessing. It is going to be a simple wedding among family members," the Umno Youth deputy chief, told reporters .
