Taiwanese comedian Peng Chia Chia filed for bankruptcy last August. The 64-year-old racked up NT$240mil (S$11.38mil) in debts due to failed movie ventures, and was unable to pay off the remaining half of the amount despite mortgaging his house and borrowing from illegal moneylenders.
On January 24, fellow comedian Ma Kuo Bi revealed that Chia Chia has been discharged from bankruptcy. For some reason, Taiwanese media claimed that this change in Chia Chia's financial situation was because Jacky Wu had lent him NT$200mil (S$9.48mil).
Yesterday, Chia Chia released a statement denying these claims.
