K Kawshigan, the man who gained so much attention for suing a woman for S$3 million after she rejected his romantic advances, has now been charged with cheating in a different case.
The 31-year-old Singaporean man has been accused of inducing another man, Mr. Tan Wei Liang, to deliver S$2,650 for a MacBook Pro that turned out to be fake.
According to the report, Kawshigan allegedly enlisted the services of a courier to deliver a sealed MacBook Pro with a legitimate serial number to Mr. Tan. Believing the laptop to be genuine, Mr. Tan transferred the money to Kawshigan’s bank account. However, upon discovering that the MacBook was a fraudulent product, he reported the incident.
Kawshigan has been remanded for further investigations and is scheduled to appear in court next week. If found guilty of conspiring to cheat, he could face a jail term of up to seven years and a hefty fine.
LAWSUIT AGAINT WOMAN :
K Kawshigan, faced disappointment and legal repercussions when his romantic advances towards a woman named Nora Tan were met with rejection. Kawshigan resorted to legal action, seeking over S$3 million in damages for the “emotional trauma” he allegedly suffered after discovering that Tan regarded him only as a friend. Additionally, he filed a separate lawsuit in the Magistrate’s Court seeking S$22,000 in damages, claiming Tan had breached a legally binding agreement.
However, the Magistrate’s Court swiftly dismissed Kawshigan’s case in January 2023, citing it as an abuse of process. The judgment revealed that Kawshigan’s claims originated from his frustration with Tan for not reciprocating his desire to deepen their relationship.
The court found that Tan, on the other hand, had repeatedly made it clear that she considered him only a friend.
Their conflict began in September 2020 when their perspectives on their friendship diverged. Tan requested the reduction of their interactions, a decision that left Kawshigan displeased and feeling that their relationship was regressing. When she urged him to be self-reliant and set boundaries, Kawshigan responded by threatening her with legal action through a “Letter of Demand” in October 2020. He alleged negligence causing emotional distress and possible defamation.
Text messages produced as evidence in court depicted Kawshigan’s attempts to instill fear in Tan and force her compliance. Despite genuine discomfort, Tan remained firm and ceased all communication with him. She suggested participating in counselling sessions to help Kawshigan accept her decision, but after a year and a half of therapy with little progress, she ultimately stopped attending due to his unreasonable demands.
In an unexpected turn of events, Tan initiated harassment proceedings against Kawshigan.
Eventually, a woman claiming to be his counsellor reached out to Tan and requested her participation in the sessions, which she reluctantly agreed to.
The High Court ruled in favor of Tan, dismissing Kawshigan’s claim for S$3 million in damages. Kawshigan had sought compensation for the alleged indefinite loss of potential investments, rehabilitation costs, therapy programs to overcome trauma, and reduced earning capacity due to the rejection.

This is not the first time that Kawshigan has made headlines. Earlier this year, he filed two lawsuits amounting to over S$3 million against Ms. Nora Tan Shu Mei, a woman who had rejected his romantic advances. Kawshigan claimed that Tan had breached an agreement to improve their relationship and caused him emotional trauma by treating him solely as a friend.
In response, Tan countersued Kawshigan for the expenses she had incurred to protect herself from his alleged harassment, including the installation of a digital door viewer, an alarm sensor, and a smart video doorbell. The case filed by Kawshigan in the Magistrate’s Court was dismissed, while the million-dollar case in the High Court is scheduled for a case conference for damages assessment in September.
The recent charge of cheating against Kawshigan adds another chapter to his controversial story. As the case unfolds, the public awaits further developments in this unusual legal battle.
