Chinese heartthrob actor, Johnny Huang Jingyu (黃景瑜) has only been in the industry for two years, but he shot to immediate stardom through the web series, “Addicted” (上癮). With popularity, rumors will inevitability follow. Johnny Huang Jingyu is the latest star embroiled in a domestic abuse scandal with his ex-girlfriend, Wang Yuxin (王雨馨), who is six years his senior.
The scandal started when a Weibo user with the name “凹凸不平up”, uploaded a post in October that stated Johnny Huang Jingyu was already married to Wang Yuxin with a daughter. The Weibo user also alleges that the couple divorced due to domestic abuse altercations. At that time, Johnny Huang Jingyu’s team immediately refuted those claims.
As if that wasn’t enough, the same Weibo user revealed many intimate pictures of them two, including an alleged ripped apart marriage picture, and a picture of Wang Yuxin with Johnny Huang Jingyu and his family. There was also a picture of Wang Yuxin’s swollen face taken by doctors as proof of her facial injuries. Aside from the domestic abuse allegations, the user also posted, “While your wife was mourning your grandmother, did your grandmother know you were sleeping with other women and wouldn’t come home?” The user also added a message to the actress, Zhang Yishang (張藝上), who allegedly broke the couple apart, saying, “Shang Shang, you have to be careful.”, hinting that she would be the next victim.
As these are serious allegations, Johnny Huang Jingyu’s work studio finally issued an official statement through his lawyers on November 4th that said:
“Mr. Huang Jingyu and Ms. Wang Yuxin have amicably broke up. During their time together, there were no acts of domestic abuse altercations. The users who are using Ms. Wang’s personal pictures to make up lies and accuse Mr. Huang Jingyu of domestic abuse are egregious acts of defamation and libel. This was a well organized and planned out attack that followed a rhythmic pattern in the way the rumors were circulated.”
The statement went on to say that they will be going taking legal actions against those who continue to spread false and malicious lies about Johnny Huang Jingyu.
