Update, 7:09pm: While Cheo’s newly set up @arissacheo IG account appears to have been shut down—or kept highly private—(by the socialite herself, we assume), it seems like Cheo turned up her A (for Arissa) game and managed to claim her Instagram account—@xarissaxcheox—rightfully back, stamping her bio simply with an “A.” and her name in full caps. We can’t the same for her fashion-centric account—@arrissa.cheoo—at the moment, though we trust that the socialite will claim that one back too in due time. Let’s keep our fingers crossed, and stay tuned for more updates.
Update, 3:28pm: Sources came with news that Cheo may have created a new private account—@arissacheo. Followed by her inner circle of friends like DJ Has (@trustmrhas) and fellow socialite Kim Lim (@kimlimhl), we can only wonder if this account is truly authentic… And more importantly, if it’s also under digital attack.
Update, 3pm: It seems that the hacker, Mr KadiKasi, has managed to worm his way into Cheo’s personal (and verified) account with a reach of 324k followers. The profile has been made public with Cheo’s profile photo and bio changed.
While that’s happening, her fashion Instagram handle has been updated to @arrissa.cheoo. Stay tuned as the drama unfolds.
Original post, 2.46pm: Rich, beautiful, and living the life — Arissa Cheo seems to have it all. The 35-year-old socialite, entrepreneur and designer behind local label Arissa X was posting Instagram stories and #ootd shots on @arissa.cheo, her fashion Instagram account (with a strong reach of 82.2k followers to date) as per usual…

An eagle-eyed source provided these screenshots two evenings ago, suggesting that the account was hacked by a mysterious “Mr. KadiKasi”. This digital intruder also inserted a dubious number foreign to Singapore on Cheo’s IG stories, urging the public to “Send me message Whatsapp”, and also altered the handle from @arissa.cheo to @arrisssa.cheo. Just what’s going on here?

While the hacker appears to still be actively posting on IG stories, it seems that Cheo has either deleted her personal account, @xarissaxcheox, or blocked people from it since the incident, taking these steps to protect herself and her family.
Will Arissa take legal action or will she let the matter slide? Whatever it is, we wish nothing but safety and all the best to Cheo and her family.
