TV personality Dewi Sukarno spoke to reporters this week upon her return from America about a slapping incident that took place on a TBS program on Jan 9.
Sukarno, 73, returned to Tokyo to attend the funeral of her recently deceased actress friend Keiko Awaji, on Wednesday.
After the funeral, reporters asked her about the slapping incident which occurred on the program "Okusama wa Monster 2." A 33-year-old woman, who appeared on the program with Sukarno and other guests, filed a complaint with police after she was slapped three times by Sukarno during an argument while the program was being filmed, Nikkan Sports reported. The incident was edited out of the program before it went to air, TBS said.
Speaking to reporters, Sukarno -- the widow of former Indonesian President Sukarno -- said "What occurred between myself and that woman has, in fact, been resolved during a phone conversation. I truly feel sorry for having caused an uproar. I had no intention of doing so."© Japan Today
