Aaron Yan has apologised after being accused for cheating on 3 men at the same time.
The singer’s alleged three-timing ways found its way to the media after his disgruntled ex-boyfriend went public with details of their relationship together.
The ex-boyfriend also outed Aaron Yan, who has never revealed his sexuality to the public. According to the ex, who was only referred to as Mr A, the 32-year-old singer used the same approach when wooing a potential partner. All 3 men were enamoured with his sincere and honest ways after he approached them on social media. “Just like the male lead in a romance drama, Aaron often serenaded his other half in his room,” revealed Mr A.
Mr A also told ETtoday that the former Fahrenheit member messaged him when Mr A posted about his break up on a social media site. They started talking, which led to a relationship. The singer was apparently a dedicated boyfriend, as he would travel across Taiwan to be with his then-boyfriend. Aaron Yan also introduced his ex to his celebrity friends, often lavished him with presents, helped pay his rent, and even bought a plane ticket so that Mr A could come with him when he travelled overseas.
Mr A also revealed that Aaron Yan had wished for him to be his “other half, boyfriend, best friend, lover”. He also said that Aaron Yan once told him, “After all these years, I hope we can become stable with each step. Support each other while we mature. We will definitely have hardships, but we must also communicate. (…) I also look forward to us becoming a family in the future. Are you willing?”
After 2 years, Mr A found that Aaron Yan had started to become cold and distant. He then found out that the singer had been cheating on him with 2 other men. He went public with this information. As proof, he showed his conversations with Aaron Yan, and also pictures of Aaron Yan kissing him and the other men he allegedly cheated with.
The singer has released an official statement apologising for the scandal. However, he did not deny or admit the accusations.
Read his full statement:
“I am very sorry for not handling my private affairs well. It is unfortunate it had to be revealed this way. I truly treat each person wholeheartedly, but I am a normal person. I also have a lot of weaknesses and the feelings that normal people have. Relationships will always have its ups and downs. If you don’t handle it well, there will be a lot to learn from. I don’t want to be suspicious and guarded when I am getting to know a person. I have revealed my most vulnerable self to the spotlight.
I once gave my true feelings to someone, but when it ended, I didn’t handle it well causing the situation to turn into what it has become today; this I didn’t expect. I apologize to those I have caused pain. I will learn from this and become a better person. I sincerely apologize to the people who were dragged into the news and were hurt, sorry. I am also sorry to my family, friends, and fans, who have supported me all the way. I also thank my company, HIM, for tolerating and respecting me.
Those who have helped me along the way, I will always remember. I will also take this lesson as a guide to help me mature. I am also very sorry for wasting everyone’s precious time and valuable life to watch my ordinary and unworthy of everyone’s precious time’s private life.”
Earlier, Aaron Yan’s manager denied that the singer cheated on 3 men in the same year. He said, “Aaron’s hairstyle in Picture A isn’t from 2018, so the timing is not right. (…) As for these false accusations, we will let our lawyers handle it.”
