In the separation dispute between comedian Oliver Pocher and his wife Amira, the motivational coach Biyon Kattilathu spoke out publicly for the first time and denied an allegedly closer relationship with Amira. "On my alleged romantic relationship with Amira: That's not true! We didn't have a romantic relationship, we don't have a romantic relationship," Kattilathu said in a YouTube video on Friday evening.
In recent weeks, Pocher had publicly accused the motivational coach of having a romantic relationship with Amira several times and parodied him as “Dalai Karma”. Most recently, the 45-year-old appeared in this role, accompanied by the camera, on the sidelines of Kattilathus' performance in Euskirchen and sought direct confrontation.
Kattilathu files affidavit
In the statement, Kattilathu also referred to the affidavit he submitted. "Making a false statement carries heavy penalties. This is not something you do on a whim, but only if you have a clear conscience and if you are absolutely convinced of the truth." At the beginning of his video, the podcaster explained that there is a point when you have to say something, "especially when certain boundaries are exceeded."
Amira Pocher had already described an affair with Kattilathu as “total nonsense” in the “Bunte” interview in November. "It is true that Biyon and I have worked together on various professional projects and most recently spoke about a joint podcast." She is single, said the podcaster. The headlines of the past few weeks have shown her that the separation from Pocher was “simply the right thing”.
Oliver and Amira Pocher announced their separation at the end of August; they had been a couple since 2016, married since 2019 and have two sons together.
