There's been a hell of a trumparoma around here since they drained that swamp and filled it with sewage.

Marital dispute laid bare after late-night fracas

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

As national media give up-to-the-minute reports on the health condition of former president Soeharto, gossip rags and infotainment TV shows are feasting on a juicy piece of gossip involving one of his son's marital troubles.

Businessman Bambang Trihatmodjo's wife Halimah, accompanied by two of her children, allegedly attacked the home of singer Mayangsari late Sunday in the exclusive Simprug area of South Jakarta.

Gossip columnists had long speculated on the relationship of Mayangsari and Bambang before compromising photographs reportedly showing the two were published in magazines and distributed over the Internet late last year. Mayangsari gave birth to a daughter by Bambang two months ago.

Eyewitnesses said Halimah arrived at the home at 11:30 p.m. with her son, daughter and four bodyguards and insisted to be let inside after seeing her husband's car parked outside.

They then attempted to ram the gate with their vehicle, and someone from the group reportedly threw bottles at the house and broke several front windowpanes.

Witnesses said that the incident lasted for half an hour.

"We have sent a summons to Halimah, her son and daughter as well as the four guards participating in the vandalism," said Sr. Comr. Williardi Wizard of the South Jakarta Police.

Soeharto family members refused comment on the incident as they accompanied their father at Pertamina Hospital in South Jakarta.

On Monday, infotainment shows broadcast footage of Halimah leaving Pertamina Hospital on Sunday after she visited her father-in-law on the eighth anniversary of his stepping down from power. She replied curtly to reporters as she got into her car.

Some have speculated Halimah is planning to divorce Bambang.

As well as their extensive business dealings, the six Soeharto children were the subject of extensive gossip about reported affairs, feuds and material excesses during their father's 32-year rule.

However, in the days when the media was tightly controlled and before the proliferation of the gossip media, most of the stories remained hearsay. (06)

you may well ask, what's kuku doing posting news about gossip?

well, firstly, it's fun because it's so sordid smile

secondly, and more importantly, it is yet another demonstration that the soeharto clan is crumbling just as the old man lies on his deathbed (well, at least i'm hoping that it's his deathbed).

just last week tommy's wife sought a divorce.

the family may well be easy pickings once the old man carks it.

As well they should be, the only that will protect them is if they hide behind all the money

of course they are certainly not short of money, and will use it to every effect, however the thing that has protected the family more than anything has been the connections and aura of the old man. once the old fucker goes, the aura will evapourate, and it will need more than just money to stop the breakup of their illicit empire.

True to a certain extent, their money has and will protect them and I think it will continue to protect them as long as there are Indonesians willing to sell themselves to the highest bidder. Although on the other side of the coin, I did make the comment just last week to my wife that maybe it is time for the "kids" to find some other passports as they had better hit the road as soon as the old man bites it.

They still have money, and money buys power. I doubt they will suffer.....

They're still "untouchable symbol" and this incident not only happen for one or twice but remember when the case of Indonesian model (Dietje Mulyono) has shots,and then come again and again until now.
