After the wedding ceremony, the two performed an Umrah, visiting Mecca with Barlanti’s family. Haji had also reportedly paid for the Barlanti family’s travel expenses.
An Instagram post from Indonesian social media outlet Underc0ver.id on Aug. 3, however, confirmed that the two had divorced, although the reason remains unknown.
An individual claiming to be Haji’s neighbor stated that the 65-year-old man has been ill since the divorce.
