On January 13, Eddie Peng’s (彭于晏) studio issued a statement denying rumors circulating that “Eddie Peng and a certain male artist coming out of the closet”, “Eddie Peng and a certain male artist’s relationship”, and other false news. These rumors were being spread on different social media platforms by yingxiaohaos (marketing accounts).

Eddie Peng’s Studio revealed they filed a lawsuit against one of the platforms, “Fen Mo”, for failing to perform their audit obligations on those accounts and posts, which allowed the false information to be spread. After going through the trial and mediation, “Fen Mo” issued a public apology to Eddie Peng on multiple outlets.
