Ever since Gillian Chung (鍾欣潼) and her younger Taiwanese doctor husband, Michael Lai (賴弘國), got married the two have been plagued with separation rumors. While the two never directly addressed the rumors, Gillian Chung did post on social media to celebrate her husband’s birthday, seemingly to silence the critics. Recently, the separation rumors have elevated to cheating allegations on Michael Lai’s end. There are rumors he allegedly cheated on Gillian Lai with an internet celebrity. The hashtag #阿嬌老公出軌女網紅 started trending on Weibo.
On September, a netizen posted several pictures implicating Michael Lai in a cheating scandal. The netizen claims, “I have a lot evidence proving Ah Gill’s husband’s was sleeping around. So disgusting. He felt guilty and deleted my comments!” This netizen alleges Michael Lai is constantly following a lot of female internet celebrities, claiming he is always fooling around with them while Gillian Chung is not around. She says he is constantly following and unfollowing these girls.
The latest internet celebrity he followed, Ning, spoke with ETtoday.net and said Michael Lai didn’t direct message her and denied sleeping with him. She also clarified it on Instagram saying: “The internet is really scary! Because of one picture, I was dragged into the news. I don’t even know the male in the news report.” She also said the fake news and malicious screen caps have seriously hurt her and told everyone not to believe it.
Gillian Chung responded to the rumors saying, “First day of school. We are not joining in on this fun! This has nothing to do with you.” Michael Lai responded back: “We are not joining in on this fun! Love you, wifey.” Michael Lai also followed up with a legal notice denying the fabricated news and is requiring netizens to delete the fake news or else he will be taking legal action against those slandering him.
