6. With regards to the police report I made on Dec 18
When a relationship ends, I’ll look for answers from the two parties involved. Relationships are between two people, and if there’s a problem, it should stem from one or both of us. Therefore, I’ve tried to avoid being dragged into Lee Jinglei and Wang Leehom’s battle for assets even when I was maliciously slandered.
On Dec 18, everything that I did, including personally going to the station to sign [the report], adding my thumbprint to the report and providing evidence was in response to netizens who made up malicious rumours about me and my Hollywood friend (the netizen has since made clarifications). There were false rumours that I had a baby with someone else, that my sister and I are on bad terms, and that I’m a mistress spread by ying xiao hao. [Ed: These are Weibo accounts that gain popularity from posting unverified information, and are often paid to upload shocking posts that would either distract netizens from another scandal or to manipulate public opinions].
Netizens said I should make a police report if my conscience was clear, so that’s what I did. It’s not because I was getting defensive after assuming that they were talking about me, but because my conscience is clear. Things escalated when Ms Lee reposted my work studio’s post while I was filming a variety show.
7. With regards to my response
I reiterate that I have never interfered with Wang Leehom and Lee Jinglei’s marriage. I have done nothing against my conscience while he was married.
A lot of my friends around me have told me not to respond any longer. They’re right — I won’t make a mistake if I lay low and do nothing. They say I’m stupid and am often made use of. When I was younger, I didn’t have a good grasp of Chinese and would make a joke of myself when using inappropriate methods to defend myself. That’s why the public doesn’t have a good impression of me. On the other hand, Ms Lee is well-educated and is a good representative of the new generation of independent women. With her as my opponent, nobody will believe me nor help me.
They say that the photos that I took without any fear when I was 20 and in love might be in Ms Lee’s hands. They also said she being the clever woman that she is might have laid traps and is just waiting for me [to fall into them].
I still decided to stand out because I’ve never been against Ms Lee. I know what it’s like to be wronged. I’m in no place to judge nor discuss what Ms Lee has gone through because I don’t know if it’s true and neither do I fully understand.
I’ve never spoken up in the face of negative press because I was under a contract with my company and didn’t have the right to speak up for myself. Right now, I’m standing up for myself because of all the people who are standing behind me, including my sister, my friends, and the fans who have supported me throughout the years. They have all told me that they will stand by me even if the worst happens. When I think of this, I’m really lucky.
Someone once said that idols mean ‘thank you’ when they say ‘I love you’ to their fans. I think they’re right. I love everyone. Lastly, I still believe that relationships are between the two people involved, and should never involve innocent parties. It’s a pity that public opinion has caused something that should only affect two people to spread this far. At the end of the day, I hope Mr Wang and Ms Lee can quickly resolve their family matters and that they will not involve even more people. I’ve finally let go of what happened nine years ago that I had hidden deep in my heart. Thank you to those who read this till the end.”
