The Straits Times reported that in the second installment of her three-part interview series "Kim Lim Tells All," which was released on YouTube on April 9, Kim disclosed her continuous love for Kho.

"We’re still close friends, we support each other," said the heiress. "I still love him a lot."

Kim also praised Kho as an excellent father who devotes a significant amount of care to their son Kyden. She mentioned she has yet to inform Kyden about the divorce, intending to wait until he is older. Kim further stated that her parents continue to think highly of Kho.

"Whatever has happened, we still support him," she affirmed.

Kim, 33, tied the knot with Kho, 34, in Feb. 2017. They welcomed their son Kyden in July of the same year.

Kho was apprehended in July 2019 and later received a sentence that included jail time and a S$40,000 (US$29,400) fine for violations related to the Remote Gambling Act and dealing with the benefits of criminal conduct.

According to Channel News Asia, Kim was present in court when Kho faced his sentencing, offering her support.

Nevertheless, the couple declared their separation in 2020, attributing it to differing life views.

Kim entered into her second marriage with businessman Leslie Leow in 2022, celebrating with a grand ceremony that featured S$2 million worth of dowry gifts, as detailed by Harper’s Bazaar Singapore. These gifts included gold bars, gold jewelry, Hermès handbags, Jimmy Choo footwear, and Rolex watches.

However, Kim disclosed in an interview with the Chinese-language publication Icon, as The Straits Times highlighted, that her second marriage concluded merely two months after the ceremony. She has since embraced her role as a single mother.

As of April 15, Forbes estimated the net worth of her father Peter Lim at US$1.8 billion, positioning him as the 23rd wealthiest individual in its ranking of Singapore’s 50 Richest.
