I thought I heard it all when it comes to far out there dating rumors but this one makes a new cake. TW-actress Chen Qiao En was forced to respond to rumors making rounds on the internet that she slept with young teen actor Wu Lei, the one who played Hu Ge‘s sidekick Fei Liu in the period drama Nirvana in Fire. Things got started when a well known Chinese gossip site anonymously posted that a famous Taiwanese actress in her 30s slept with a much younger Chinese actor, and the age gap between then was 21 years old.
Netizens got to work and zeroed in on 37 year old Chen Qiao En and 16 year old Wu Lei, without any further proof other than the blind column and pictures of the former costars goofing around a movie set and being very chummy at an awards show. Chen Qiao En laughed at this rumored and shot down the trolls, telling them only brain dead people would believe something so insane without any shred of evidence. She’s right but this serves as another reminder that gossip no matter how ridiculous can snowball unless nipped in the bud.
