Yammie Nam makes rare public appearance after rape rumours -- but turns down easy money

2 January 2014 / 2 years 9 months ago

It is known that former Hong Kong actress Yammie Nam (藍潔瑛) has struggled with serious mental issues for years, turning her hair almost entirely white.

After staying low-key on the public’s radar for a few years, the 49-year-old recently hit headlines again after it was revealed that Yammie had been raped two decades ago.

Yammie, however, denied her own rape accusations shortly after the information was exposed. Not wishing to delineate the issue, Yammie turned down all interviews.

According to a Jayne Stars report, Yammie made a rare public appearance on December 29. Looking fuller, Yammie was not bothered by the paparazzi waiting outside her home in Stanley.

The reporters followed Yammie, who went to attend mass at a nearby Catholic Church. A fellow church member accompanied Yammie throughout to fend off reporters.

The reporters approached the priest about an hour later to ask about Yammie, but the priest claimed that she had already left. The reporters phoned Yammie again to ask for another interview, but she quickly fended them off.

Reporters contacted Yammie’s good friend Mary Yeung (楊曼莉), who explained, “She’s been going to church because the members have been very kind to her.”

Mary revealed that a mainland Chinese company had approached Yammie about a cameo in an upcoming film. “The shoot will only be three days long and she would earn 30,000 RMB, but she didn’t seem to be that interested. Maybe it’s because she’s not feeling well. She should rest!”

Rumors claimed that Yammie has plans to move to Shenzhen, but Mary said, “Don’t think so. She has social security assistance in Hong Kong!”
