(Newser) – A Malaysian man is suing his former fiancee for more than $360,000 for leaving him just six hours before their wedding. Masran Abdul Rahman and his family were distressed and deeply embarrassed when Norzuliyana Mat Hassan called off the June wedding at the last minute. Masran, 32, had invited 1,200 guests to the reception and is seeking compensation for damages and defamation from Norzuliyana and her father. His lawyer said the would-be bride didn't give any reason for backing out of the arranged marriage.
