By Adelind Osmanlı reporting from Munich, Germany

Screencap of reportThe Turkish megastar's ex-backing singer Murat Boz has been speaking a lot about his old boss in an interview published by Turkish paper Sabah's entertainment supplement Günaydın, although the report's headline informs that Boz believes Turkish singer/songwriter Serdar Ortaç to be "Turkish music's phenomenon".

When asked whether it was a good thing to be compared to Tarkan, Boz responded, "I don't know if it's a good thing, but it's not a bad thing, either. Tarkan is an important artist when all is said and done. It doesn't bother me being compared to him in some way or another. In fact it makes me happy. I worked with him for six years. We have a friendship."

Although Boz speaks of "a friendship" he reveals that he didn't call the artist when he had been taken into custody by narcotics, because he had been away and didn't read the papers.

Even though news wires across the globe had carried the news of Tarkan's detainment, Boz nevertheless went on to say, "I wasn't in the country at the time. When I'm abroad I don't follow current events [in Turkey]. I didn't know this had happened until a while had passed afterwards. But I am sure Tarkan will turn this to his advantage and come out of it clean."

Recently, Boz had tweeted about Tarkan and the Turkish megastar's latest song "Sevdanın Son Vuruşu" ("Love's Last Strike"), saying he had loved it.

Known for his contradictory views on his ex-boss, "Whatever he does is amazing," Boz had tweeted.

"I'm Not His Sister-in-law Any More"

Screencap of reportTarkan's ex-girlfriend's sister DJ Berna Öztürk - who was once affectionately known as Tarkan's sister-in-law by the celeb paparazzi has mentioned Tarkan in an article published by paper Akşam.

"There has never been any problem between Tarkan and me. He will always have a special place in my heart. But I've never used his name in my work. It was the press that nicknamed me 'Baldız' (sister-in-law)," she reportedly said while discussing her 10th year as a DJ.
