Chinese actress, Fan Bingbing (范冰冰) hasn’t been seen in the public eye or active on social media since her tax evasion scandal came to light back in June. Ever since the scandal, her whereabouts have been a mystery. No one has spotted her nor has her camp put out a statement addressing the scandal.
Today (Sept. 16) marks her 37th birthday and fans noticed Bingbing went online a little past midnight on her Weibo account. Because it’s her birthday, Weibo will automatically post a Happy Birthday greeting on her page. However, not even five minutes later, the post was deleted. Some suspect it was actually someone from her team that was on her account, not Bingbing personally.
In previous years, there would be numerous birthday greetings from the entertainment industry. Aside from fans, only less than ten people from the industry dared to leave a birthday greeting for her this year. Bingbing’s fiancé and fellow actor, Li Chen (李晨), who normally showers her with public affection on her birthday, was also seen online around the same time, but remained quiet. It seems she is laying low until the dust settles.
