Seems like Elva Hsiao (萧亚轩) got caught in a nasty rumour.
Due to her hiatus, some netizens claimed that the 39-year-old Taiwanese pop diva has been infected with HIV. One netizen even went as far as to say that her agency confirmed the news, adding that she’s receiving treatment.
In response to the ridiculous rumour, the singer’s manager said, “How ridiculous can they (netizens) be!”
In March, Hsiao postponed plans for her new album and has cancelled her concert tour in China. According to reports, she was diagnosed with acute bronchitis and halted her work to receive treatment in Vancouver, Canada. “After consulting with Elva’s family, we decided to postpone her work indefinitely, including her commercial work, endorsements, new album, and tour concert,” said a rep.
Hsiao also thanked her supporters and promised that she’ll “be back soon” in her most recent Instagram post (which was posted in May).
She wrote, “I’m so thankful to everyone that has been supporting me when I’m feeling under the weather. I’ll be back soon I promise. PS these two know how to cheer me up now❤️”
Get well soon, Elva! We look forward to your new album ;)
