Controversy Explained: What Happened To Build Thai Actor Jakapan Puttha?
Thai actor Build and author Poi have been making headlines after the latter claimed her relationship with Build.
The controversy started on Twitter after the KinnPorsche writer posted allegations against Build Jakapan.
Poi, also known as Patchayamon Theewasujaroen, claimed that the actor had taken several expensive gifts from her, such as a car, designer clothes, bags, etc.
She also shared multiple chat conversations as “evidence.” In some snapshots, while she shows a bruise, the other person in the chat mocks her injury, asking her why she needs to go to a hospital.
In a thread posted on her Twitter, Poi accuses Build of physically and mentally abusing her, cheating on her, and making her pay for his condo (where he brought other women).
