If you're a friend of Yang Mi and in need of some quick cash, don’t bother going to the Chinese actress for help. She may have ranked ninth in last year’s Forbes China Celebrity 100 list and was once reported to be worth a whopping S$890mil, but the 33-year-old has declared — on a public platform, no less — that she would never lend her friends money.
Yang Mi made the rather controversial statement during her appearance on Chinese talk show Hi! Relax while chatting with Chinese host Wayne Zhang. Somehow, they got to talking about lending money to other people, which is when Yang Mi frankly stated that she would usually avoid doing it.
