DJ Tenashar on Drug Charges in Singapore

DJ Tenashar, 32, is in Singapore facing charges for two counts of drug consumption involving cocaine an psilocin, the latter being a substance found in most psychedelic mushrooms.

News of her alleged drug-related offences first made the headlines in April 2016 when The New Paper reported that Long and her then boyfriend, Mr Thorsten Nolte, who is in his 40s, were wanted by the Central Narcotics Bureau for failing to report back after they were arrested for drug-related offences in 2015.

Tenashar is now remanded at Changi Women’s Prison and appeared in court via video-link on Friday (June 22). She was offered bail of $30,000 and will return to court on July 18.

If convicted of drug consumption, Long can be jailed for up to 10 years and fined up to $20,000 on each charge. She faces up to 20 years in jail if convicted of importing psilocin.

Besides making a name for herself in EDM and playing all around the world, the 32-year-old also often graces the covers of raunchy men’s magazines.

Tenashar is no stranger to Singaporeans and Malaysians, having been featured in both editions of FHM a few times.

The former FHM Singapore cover girl, whose full name is Debbie Valerie Tenashar Long, is also facing one count each of importing psilocin — a controlled drug — and being in possession of nimetazepam or Erimin-5.

DJ Tenashar allegedly imported two containers each containing a packet of off-white/brown substance at Changi Airport Terminal 1, Arrival Belt 19, at around 10.20pm on Oct 28, 2015, according to court documents.

Labelled as “Psilocybe Atlantis Forbidden Fruit”, the container had contents that weighed about 42g.

The contents were analysed and later found to contain psilocin, a compound which online open chemistry database PubChem says is found in most psychedelic mushrooms.

DJ Tenashar is also accused of consuming psilocin and another substance known as benzoylecgonine, a major metabolite of cocaine, on Oct 28, 2015.
