Last week, netizens were in an uproar after Hong Kong singer Alan Tam (譚詠麟) was accused of sleeping with a fan. Not only was there a 25-year age gap between the duo, the fan was apparently already in a relationship.
Alan and his agency were quick to deny the allegations. However, the netizen who made the accusation released more proof. Many thought the singer would be in shambles after news of the scandal. Ironically, netizens have reported that he’s fine!
The 71-year-old artist was recently seen attending a private gathering with friends. From the photos, a man who looked like Alan was eating and drinking with much gusto. The netizens who glimpsed the singer apparently reported that there were many pretty ladies at the party. They also claimed that Alan was drinking a lot and enjoying the party as he walked from table to table.
However, the photos taken were blurry and the netizens did not manage to get a clear shot of the supposed singer. There has also been radio silence from the netizen who made the allegations. Majority of his posts have since been deleted, including some of the photos he uploaded earlier.
As the incident seems to have fallen to the wayside, netizens are wondering whether the matter has been resolved. They pointed out that if the news was false, Alan should just report the netizen who accused him. Others also claimed that if Alan was truly a “bad artist”, he would have been banned from the entertainment scene already. A few suspect the scandal was an attempt to generate hype for the variety show “Time Concert (时光音乐会)” which Alan participated in.
It wouldn’t be a surprise if the singer was actually unaffected by the scandal. After all, he’s been in the entertainment scene for a long while now. We’re sure he knows how to deal with such allegations.
Well, it’s good to know that Alan is unshakable enough to let such accusations affect him!
