A set of photos which reveal the interior of a new residence that supposedly belongs to celebrity power couple Fan Bingbing and Li Chen have been leaked online.
The photos show a luxurious mansion that has a sophisticated look and a modern feel.
According to Tencent news, the person who was responsible for revealing the photos was a neighbour that was shocked to learn that the celebrity couple would be moving in nearby.
They also had a friend working at the design studio behind the house, and could not resist leaking the photos online.
Chinese website Gucheng.com reported that the 10 million yuan (S$2.1 million) luxury dwelling is located in the Huangdao district of Qingdao, a city in the eastern China province of Shandong. Qingdao is also the city where the X-Men: Days of Future Past actress was born.
The couple have reportedly made a down payment of 5 million yuan for the house, of which Fan paid 4 million yuan while Li paid the remaining 1 million yuan.
The unit is surrounded by the sea on three sides, while the back of the house has a view of the mountains.
According to China Youth Online, the property is registered under both their names.
Fan and Li, who were co-stars in the controversial TV drama The Empress of China, went public as a couple in May last year. Li posted a photograph of the pair, both clad in white, on his Weibo account. The photo was accompanied by a simple caption: "Us".
