“I still love Bella,” he admitted while expressing that he needs more time to make the decision.

In the interview with Melodi, the singer-actor explained that he initially rejected the divorce as Bella “is the mother of [his] children”.

The couple have two children together, aged 3 and 6 respectively.

“There needs to be more discussion. What happens after is something I have to bear,” he shared.

Moreover, he revealed that they had been facing issues in their marriage even before he began shooting with Ruhainies.

Particularly, he highlighted that Bella would ask for divorce “even for small things”.

Their upcoming divorce hearing is set to take place on 4 June. Claiming that he would cooperate fully, Aliff also stated his readiness to let Bella take custody of their children.

Even so, he still wishes to be able to visit and spend nights with his kids.

“I don’t want the bond between us to be severed or obstructed,” he stressed.
