One of the biggest Singaporean news today centers on Mediacorp artists Ian Fang and Carrie Wong who have landed themselves in hot water after their private DM conversations on Instagram had been leaked online.
The messages contain plenty of sexual innuendos and inappropriate language, suggesting that the two may have had a relationship of a physical nature even though both of them already have a significant other.
Carrie is reportedly dating Taiwanese model Boris Lin while Ian is rumoured to be in a relationship with fellow Mediacorp artist Rebecca Lim.
Some of the content in the conversations include Ian mentioning that sleeping with Carrie is “comfortable”, inviting Carrie to “kiss” him, saying that he can’t “bear it”, wanting to “plant strawberries” on her (which is a Chinese slang for love bites), and more.
In the conversation, the two were also caught badmouthing Channel 8 actor Lawrence Wong who is known for the famous Chinese drama “Story of Yanxi Palace”.
After Aloysius Pang’s death, Lawrence is announced as Aloysius’ replacement in upcoming local drama “My One In A Million”, which he is in the midst of filming with Carrie Wong.
However, in the private message, Carrie said that Lawrence cannot be compared to Aloysius and that he should just stay in China.
Ian added by saying that Carrie need to let Lawrence know that “we don’t depend on connections, we don’t depend on looks, we don’t depend on luck.
The conversation reportedly took place in February, the same month when Carrie announced her relationship with Boris publicly.
Ian Fang: “With regard to a private conversation between me and my good friend Carrie Wong that’s been circulating online, I’m very shocked. For this, I want to apologise to everyone for my inappropriate behaviour. Carrie and I are such good friends that there is nothing we can’t say to each other. I admit that the language we used was vulgar and inappropriate and I apologise for that. I also feel bad for those who have read the messages. As a public figure, I will pay more attention to my actions in the future.”
Carrie Wong: “Ian and I have been good friends for many years, and we don’t put too much thought into what we say to each other. The indecent language we used in our private conversation has caused a lot of unnecessary worry and hurt to everyone, and I’m deeply regretful for causing that. I’ve been reflecting a lot on my actions after the incident and I take responsibility for my inappropriate language. I am also grateful to my boyfriend for his trust and I want to offer my deepest apologies to everyone.”
After the news broke, Rebecca Lim has reportedly unfollowed everyone on Instagram.
