I just read this article about Faye…
Note by Feifan: The article, “Demystifying the Diva: Faye Wong Caught on Film, Li Still Stands Strong,” that Deb is referring to was written by Doriah Morrison (pseudonym?) in her Rumor Mill column in Global Times (3 Dec. 2010). Here’s the relevant paragraph:
Of course most of you know that Wong successfully held comeback concerts in Beijing and Shanghai last month, two of which I attended and enjoyed. What you surely do not know is that after one concert in Beijing, the diva continued on to share a passionate night with her drummer and was caught by the paparazzi. Her husband, local actor Li Yapeng, had to spend a few million yuan (half a million dollars) keeping the cheating couple’s photos out of the press.
The drummer in Faye’s concert band is Chu Weiming (褚伟明), but Morrison didn’t name him in her article. Thus, the identity of the male in the alleged affair is uncertain.
Like Deb, I would think that this story would be all over the tabloids, blogosphere, and news media if it were true. The fact that it appears only in Morrison’s column is an indication that it’s either false or a well-covered secret. I, too, would like to know if there’s any other news about this.
