Faye Wong Is Not Pregnant?

Morning Post reporter Luo Jun Peng writes on Sep 16 that, according to Katie Chen (陈家瑛 Chen Jiaying), Faye Wong (王菲) is not pregnant. In an interview on Sep 14, Katie is alleged to have admitted that she made a mistake when she announced that Faye was pregnant. The mistake, she said, was due to a late menstrual period.

This report lends credence to rumors over the last week or so that Faye had a miscarriage or an abortion in late-August. Speculation is that her age, 39, and previous cesarean births have made it dangerous for her to attempt a third pregnancy.

Rumor – Faye’s 40 Days Pregnant

This rumor is so prevalent that it’s tough to ignore — Faye Wong’s (王菲) been pregnant for the last 40 days. According to sources such as Sina.com, her pregnancy is in response to Li Yapeng’s (李亚鹏) desire for a son. They have two daughters, Tong Tong (竇靖童 Dou Jingtong) and Li Yan (李嫣). Tong Tong’s father is Dou Wei (竇唯), Faye’s ex. Faye will be 39 in a few days, and if this rumor is true, pundits fear a difficult pregnancy.

Other news – Carina Lau (刘嘉玲 Liu Jia Ling) flew to Beijing on Wednesday, July 30, to celebrate Faye’s birthday with Faye and other close friends, including Na Ying (那英) and Hu Jun (胡军), on the 31st. Faye’s actual birthday is on Aug. 8.

Update 8.5.08: According to CQnews.net (8.6.08), Faye’s manager, Katie Chen  (陈家瑛 Chen Jiaying), confirmed reports of the pregnancy on Aug 5. (BTW, time discrepancies between this blog and China sources are a result of differing time zones.) Re questions about China’s one-child policy, the response, according to at least one report, is that Faye is a Hong Kong national.

Update 8.6.08: Katie’s confirmation at 3PM on Aug 5. (Source Jun-Jun’s blog in China Economic Net)
