Edison Chen reveals why he had no choice but to attack Lin Chi-ling in public post

2 August 2016 / 2 months 3 weeks ago

Edison Chen (陳冠希) has declared war against Lin Chi-ling (林志玲) and he’s not backing down. He also revealed why he chose to call her out online.

According to Jayne Stars, the media has contacted Lin Chi-ling for her comments about the incident. She responded through her representative that she doesn’t know what’s going on and neither does she know Edison on a personal level.

Her representative said, “[She] doesn’t know him at all. We don’t know what’s going on. [She’s] been working every single day in the past few weeks. [They] never contacted and [she] does not know him.”

A while later, Chi-ling’s representative released a second response in regards to Edison’s second Weibo message. The representative said, “It’s frustrating to suddenly receive such damage. We will try to understand what’s going on. This came out of nowhere!”

That night, Edison left one last message about his debacle with Chi-ling on Weibo, saying, “In the end all truths reveal themselves. If you don’t like me, then don’t follow me!”

Edison and Chi-ling stayed quiet on the matter all throughout Thursday (July 28), but on Friday (July 29), when Edison attended an event in Shanghai, he did not shy away from media questions and boldly explained why he did what he did.

“I was speaking up for the person I care about the most,” he said.

Edison did not drop a specific name, but the media is speculating that he was referring to his girlfriend, Qin Shupei (秦 舒培).

As for an explanation behind the Weibo post, Edison said that he and Chi-ling had privately contacted each other three times before he made that post. Because Chi-ling never responded to any of his messages, he decided to call her out in public.
