JAKARTA: The controversial dang-dut singer Dewi Persik feels like a brand new woman. She has just had hymenoplasty, or surgical restoration of the hymen, popularly known as virginity surgery.
The 25-year-old told kompas.com recently that she had undergone the surgery after going on a pilgrimage.
“I may be a divorcée, but physically I am still a virgin,” the two-time divorcée said proudly.
Dewi added she went through with the surgery because she did not want to disappoint her future husband. The procedure took place in Egypt, she said.
The singer is currently single after breaking up with her boyfriend, actor Nicky Tirta.
She divorced her previous husbands, singer Saiful Jamil and actor Aldiansyah Taher. — JP
