Two of Indonesia’s biggest stars are in trouble after Indonesia’s first-ever celebrity sex video scandal spread on the internet.
The sex tape scandal that rocks Indonesia allegedly featured Luna Maya and her partner singer Nazriel “Ariel” Irham.
Luna Maya is a top model, actress in Indonesia, and the host of popular music program ‘Dahsyat‘ on RCTI, she is also the face of Lux beauty soap while Nazriel Irham also known as Ariel is a popular pop artist and Peterpan‘s lead singer.
The video started appearing in early June after Ariel‘s laptop was stolen and many similar tapes, with other celebrities, are still out there.
The two clips are extremely graphic and leave nothing to the imagination taken with a camera phone. One is 6 minutes and 49 seconds in duration and another 2.30 minutes long.
The video has been widely circulated in the Internet. Links for the Luna Maya, Nazril Irham Sex Video can still be found on the internet. It was first downloaded onto Facebook and YouTube (but has been removed by the sites’ administrators).
Police initially threatened to charge the “stars” under a strict anti-pornography law. Luna Maya denied the allegations that she and her partner Ariel were the people in the sex videos. She said that the sex tape was fabricated and not theirs. The woman on the video had a small tattoo on the left hip. In an interview, Luna said she didn’t have any tattoos. But, many netizens discussing and analyzing the sex videos believed that the woman in the sex tape was indeed Luna Maya.
After the explosive sex tape surfaced and shocked Indonesia, Luna Maya failed to appear on her music program ‘Dahsyat,’ and filed for an indefinite leave. The couple’s Lux soap advertisement has been taken off air.
Indonesia has a strict anti-pornography laws and if found guilty they could face up to 10 years in prison and a fine of US $500,000, even if there was no indication that sex scenes were intended for public viewing.
