After announcing his split from Chinese actress Fan Bingbing in June this year, Chinese actor Li Chen has been hit with a number of reports speculating about his love life.
While some media outlets maintained that Li Chen and Bingbing’s split was merely “for the public eye”, others have claimed that Li Chen had cheated on Bingbing with his Seven Days co-star, 21-year-old Chinese actress Shi Chunzi.
Now, the latest reports have claimed that the 40-year-old actor is currently dating - and getting ready to marry - the daughter of a unnamed Singaporean millionaire, who has a net worth of NT$2 billion (approximately S$89.2 million). However, in order to prevent any negative repercussions on his public image, the couple has decided not to go public with their relationship.
Li Chen’s new beau was said to have uploaded a picture with the actor on her social media page with the caption “honey”, exposing their relationship. However, the reports did not share the picture, choosing instead to describe it as a “woman with a good figure posing next to a man, whose back view and attire strongly resemble Li Chen”.
In other related news surrounding his rumoured dating life, just last month, Li Chen was reported to have spent the Mid-Autumn Festival with Chinese actress Wang Xiaochen. The actress had uploaded a picture of the two of them together on Weibo, inciting speculation that the two of them are in a relationship.
