American-born Taiwanese singer Christine Fan Wei Qi, also known affectionately as Fan Fan, was rushed to hospital after a nasty fall yesterday (Jun 17).
News of the incident broke after the 38-year-old star updated fans of her condition on microblogging site Weibo. She wrote:
"Firstly, I would like to apologise to all those who love me. Yesterday, I fell down again. This time, it was at home. I had been sleeping when I crawled out of bed at 3am to visit the toilet.
"I lost my balance and my head -- where my left eyebrow was -- went knocking against the floor. Blood was flowing non-stop and my husband (Blackie Chen) rushed me to hospital's emergency room in his car. I think I nearly scared him to death as I've never seen that frightened expression on him.
"The wound started bleeding again yesterday so I had to look for the doctor once more. The first time I got 5 stitches and now I have 20 stitches in total. I'm currently recuperating well so everyone, please do not worry."
