PHNOM PENH (Cambodia Herald) - Fans of Oum Kunthea were recently shocked to discover that the sexy singer is seriously ill and living in poverty, according to the latest edition of Angkor Thom.
The magazine spotted the singer and her two sons in a pond searching for water lilies, morning glory, fish and snails to make their daily ends meet.
Khmer Art Association director Sos Mach and actress Soda Nita recently visited the family's broken-down house to provide some financial assistance, the report said.
"This assistance will keep my family from starving for a while," the weeping singer reportedly said. "Some money will cover treatment I've owed to a doctor for a long time."
