A man has sued a woman for £1.9 million in Singapore for “emotional trauma” after she refused to be his girlfriend following the pair’s four-year friendship.

K Kawshigan filed two lawsuits against Nora Tan Shu Mei after their friendship broke down when she told him that she only saw him as a friend.

He initially sued Ms Tan for £13,700, claiming she “breached an agreement” to improve their relationship.

But this was thrown out by the magistrates’ court, which called it an abuse of process.

Mr Kawshigan is now suing the woman for £1.9 million in the Singapore High Court for allegedly causing him a variety of damages, including trauma he says he suffered when she told him she only saw him as a friend.

The case is scheduled for February 9, 2023.

The pair met in 2016 and became friends, having both been members of the Rotary Club of Bugis Junction.

But Ms Tan said the friendship began to deteriorate when they “became misaligned about how they saw their relationship”.

Ms Tan said she told Mr Kawshigan that she saw him as a friend.

She later said she wished to reduce their social interactions.

Mr Kawshigan, a director at drone racing company D1 Racing, has accused Ms Tan of defamatory conduct against him in June 2019 and December 2020.

He claims she made false allegations and those present overheard their conversations.

Mr Kawshigan says Ms Tan told him she was feeling harassed by his actions, which included standing in her way on a doorstep.

Mr Kawshigan also claims she defamed him by stating loudly:

“He is unnecessarily serving court documents to me personally and he has not tried other ways available to him.”

According to Mr Kawshigan, Ms Tan’s actions caused damage to his “stellar reputation” and had resulted in “trauma” and “depression” over the past two years.

He says he has lost five business partnerships as a result.

In her countersuit, Ms Tan mostly denied Mr Kawshigan’s claims.

From November 2016 to September 2020, she says they began to have arguments and differing opinions, which damaged their relationship.

This was when she asked to have fewer social interactions with him and when Mr Kawshigan asked her to clarify the state of their friendship, she told him that they were only friends.

After this, she says she did not respond to mediation requests.

In October 2020, she says she found out Mr Kawshigan appeared outside her home, saying that he had filed court documents against her.

Ms Tan also says she was contacted by a woman claiming to be Mr Kawshigan’s counsellor.

According to Ms Tan, she took part in joint counselling sessions with Mr Kawshigan and the woman until May 2021.

She also agreed to participate in joint “healing” sessions that began in November 2021 and ran until May 2022, after she was contacted by someone claiming to be Mr Kawshigan’s healer.

Ms Tan is seeking £900 in total to cover the costs of a digital door viewer, an alarm sensor and a smart video doorbell to protect herself from Mr Kawshigan.

Mr Kawshigan’s high court suit was filed when Ms Tan said she did not want to speak to him any longer, which he reportedly said “forced him to escalate”.

Ms Tan was later contacted by a journalist about a high court case, having also been sent emails from people claiming to be Mr Kawshigan’s lawyers.

She also alleged that Mr Kawshigan turned up outside her house in July 2022 with a woman and refused to leave when she told him to.

She says much of this was intended to cause her harassment and distress and to force her into communicating with him.
