Since then, conflicting reports about the whereabouts of the 45-year-old actress-director — is she in her French vineyard with her husband or is she in Beijing with her parents? And where in the world is her 11-year-old daughter? — has only made netizens more curious to know what Vicki did to anger the Chinese government like that.
Netizens have likened Vicki's disappearance to Fan Bingbing’s back in 2018. The actress was MIA for months after being accused of tax evasion, and there was speculation that she had either flown to the US to seek asylum or was jailed and tortured by the Chinese government. Yikes.
It was later revealed that Bingbing had been under residential surveillance in Jiangsu.
