It has been a rather explosive week, thanks to Wang Leehom (王力宏)’s divorce scandal. If you missed the show, Leehom’s ex-wife Lee Jing Lei (李靚蕾) was first blamed for their marriage falling apart. In retaliation, she aired her husband’s dirty laundry, that is his multiple affairs.
Leehom isn’t the only one who got exposed however. Jing Lei has also dropped several names and descriptions of his past lovers. That includes BY2’s Yumi Bai (孫雨) who has been involved since the very beginning. Although she tried defending herself, Jing Lei shut her down brutally. Apparently, that was the last straw as a netizen recently claimed that Yumi was in the hospital for attempted suicide.
Yumi herself has been quiet on Weibo ever since her explanation was rebutted by Jing Lei. However, her fans have pledged their loyalty to the singer and have continued sticking up for her. As it turns out, one fan has gone after Leehom himself. Earlier today (22nd December), the fan posted a photo of a lady, who they claim is Yumi, in a hospital.
“Yumi swallowed medicine and (tried to) commit suicide, (now she’s undergoing) emergency gastric lavage in the hospital!” the netizen declared. They tagged Leehom’s Weibo and said: “You know (very well) that Yumi did not intervene in your trivial marriage! If something happens to her, I will never forgive (you)!”
The netizen also included private documents with details blurred out, a photo of a hospital room with an unkept bed and a receipt. Yumi’s original name “Wei Ling (白炜玲)” was recorded on said receipt along with details such as today’s date and the department she was in: “Emergency Critical Care”.
The comments were in two minds however. Some felt the drama was staged. Others felt she was using it as a way to escape her problems. “Now, as long as you swallow medicine and feign death, you can get rid of suspicion?” one retorted. “After that, if every (mistress) swallows a handful of medicine, can they seduce a few more without being scolded?” Netizens also stated it was better to show evidence of her innocence than to end her life. “You should not joke about your life,” one comment reminded gently. “Get well soon.”
Yumi has not confirmed the news on Weibo, neither has her agency said anything about it. However, we hope the singer is doing okay after the spicy exposé. After all, life is always precious, no matter what people did or didn’t do.
For those curious, check here for what has happened so far.
Update (Thursday, 23rd December, 12:03pm):
A Weibo netizen claimed Yumi’s ‘suicide attempt’ was falsified. The singer had supposedly only taken two pills of melatonin (to help with insomnia) and vitamins. The netizen alleged that they had heard about the issue from a friend, who is part of the medical staff at the hospital. Some netizens suspect the Weibo account “做个小孩007” is actually a fake account made by BY2 to support Yumi. The account holder has denied such allegations.
