Scandals are a celebrity’s worst nightmare. A small rumour can blow up into something big and ruin their career overnight. Even if it doesn’t destroy their career, it has the potential to scar their celebrity life permanently.
Taiwanese artist Linda Chien Kai Le (簡愷樂) aka Sister Butterfly lost her career entirely last year. She was accused of having a scandal with Taiwanese singer Show Luo (罗志祥). As she’s been keeping a low profile since then, fans were shocked to discover she was married!
After Show Luo’s long time girlfriend Grace Chow (周揚青) broke up with him in April last year, she gave him one parting shot. Chow not only announced he had been sleeping with “an artist under (his) banner”, she told Chien to check for STDs. At that time, Chien was working under Luo’s company.
As things escalated, Chien publicly apologised to Chow on Instagram. She also tagged Lou’s account at the end of the apology. It was as good as an admission which fuelled the flames of the scandal. She disappeared from the entertainment scene after the scandal affected her career.
As it turns out, while Chien was away from the public eye, she married her boyfriend, who is a doctor. Since then, she’s been living the married life. Apparently, Chien got engaged to the doctor from Shanghai in 2020. A mutual friend named Xiao Mi Tao (小蜜桃) otherwise known as “Peach” was said to be the matchmaker of the couple. When asked about the couple, she responded, “I’m sorry, please don’t ask me anymore. I don’t want to interfere in other people’s affairs.”
Chien currently has no intention of restarting her career. Her husband’s parents have apparently also asked her not to appear on-screen again. Her last post on Instagram was in mid September 2020, so perhaps she has zero intention to return to the public eye.
Either way, we wish the her all the best in her married life!
