Wang Yibo (王一博) has been rumored to be dating heiress, Emily Qi (綦美合), on three occasions since 2018. All three times, Wang Yibo’s management company, Yuehua Entertainment, have come out to deny the rumors and stated he was single. Emily Qi’s friend had also clarified they weren’t dating before. However, dating rumors between the two started circulating again on Weibo recently.
A netizen claims Wang Yibo and Emily Qi spent this year’s Chinese Valentine’s Day (Qixi Festival) together, which landed on August 25. They claimed Emily Qi flew to Xishuangbanna, Yunnan where Wang Yibo was filming at the time. They alleged there was boarding information from scalpers that showed Emily Qi flew to Xishuangbanna on August 22 and then returned to Beijing on August 27. While Wang Yibo was filming “Being A Hero” in Xishuangbanna during that time, there are no pictures or evidence showing Emily Qi was there or with Wang Yibo.
On November 8, Emily Qi’s older brother, Qi Zhenkang (綦振慷), seemingly responded to the rumors on Weibo, saying, “Is this another marketing company using this to block some artist’s negative news again?” Yuehua Entertainment hasn’t responded to the rumors at this time.
