Reports are rife that Chinese actress Crystal Huang Yi had suffered physical abuse from her husband. He, however has suggested that her sunken forehead and bruises are self-induced.
According to an article in Asian Pop News, Yiqing said she had created the sunken marks herself by pressing on her face after a hyaluronic acid injection.
Hyaluronic acid injections are a type of dermal filler used to soften facial aging.
Huang Yi’s friend has since defended her, saying: “Huang Yi was beaten up on 13 May last year, and she went to a doctor the next day. She was still breastfeeding and refused to appear in public due to her weight gain. Why would she need to go for a hyaluronic acid injection?”
The drama started when the actress was accused of having a secret tryst with a wealthy businessman in Hong Kong. Since then, her marriage had reportedly turned sour.
Her husband, Huang Yiqing was outraged by her infidelity scandal and filmed two videos of them quarreling.
In one video, Huang Yi was heard shouting on a phone, “Ask the reporter to come now! He is hitting me!”
Yiqing questioned her repeatedly in the video, “Did I ever hit you? Did I?”
In another video, Huang Yi was seen emotionally unstable, running into a room to snatch their child. A relative persuaded her, “She is only a child. Do not involve her. Do not hurt the child. He said you took a helmet to hit him.”
Huang Yi shouted back, “Why is he doing this to me?”
Yiqing defended himself with the videos, and denied hitting his wife. He wrote on the Weibo, “Look at this weakling’s reaction. She is throwing temper at home and gaining sympathy outside. Instead, she was the one assaulting me and I did not even retaliate.
"The evidence will be slowly released.”
