The internet is still recovering from the bomb Wang Leehom (王力宏)’s former wife Lee Jing Lei (李靚蕾) dropped last week. However, it seems a netizen is starting another scandal— this time with Singapore-born singer JJ Lin (Wayne Lim Junjie, 林俊杰).
Yesterday (22nd December), a netizen reached out to JJ Lin via Weibo. It would have normally been overlooked. Except for the fact that she insinuated having a personal relationship with the singer. Her ambiguous message left many confused, concerned and annoyed.
Weibo user @C-peaceful-and-quiet1011 recently became well-known on the site, thanks to her letter to JJ Lin. She claimed she had been waiting in Singapore for over a month for the singer. “Have you personally received nearly a hundred messages from my relatives and friends who (helped me) pass (it to) you every day during this month?” she asked. “If you have received it, please contact me in person! Thank you.”
The Weibo user alleged she has been receiving the cold shoulder from JJ but didn’t know why. She also added that she may have made a mistake and is willing to take responsibility for it. It was to the point where she was willing to “risk the epidemic” just to meet him. “We all know that time is precious and we must cherish the present. But I was also very tired and began to wonder why I came here to find someone,” she wrote. “The most peaceful way is for two adults to communicate with each other on their own, and we don’t have to work hard with the people around us anymore.”
Netizens have been trying to crack her intriguing message. Some have reached out to her asking for more details and offering to help her get JJ’s attention. Others are sceptical, saying she has no real evidence as the only photos she included were scenic ones. Additionally, her vague message leaves too many gaps.
JJ Lin’s studio issued a statement yesterday, presumably in regards to the matter. According to their statement, they have heavily implied that her allegations are false insinuations. The company also reprimanded the user for their words and have stated they will use legal means to protect themselves if necessary. “If anyone has evidence that Mr. Lin is involved in illegal crimes, pleases report to the relevant departments,” they wrote. “Mr. Lin and the company will actively cooperate with investigations to eliminate rumours and allegations.”
Despite the warnings, the user has continued ‘talking’ to JJ via her Weibo posts. She has stated she merely wants to apologise and does not want to quarrel. Additionally, she is aware of the public opinion surrounding her posts, but claims she has not responded to anyone. The Weibo user stressed that she will continue waiting for JJ Lin. This time, she included photos of a chat she supposedly had with him. However, it is notably one-sided although the message has been marked as seen and received.
From the user’s previous Weibo posts, they have never reached out to the singer personally before. Their first message to the singer was full of encouragement and seemed like a typical fan-letter. However, she clearly had something else in mind.
Neither JJ Lin nor his studio have said anything to the recent messages. But it doesn’t seem like anything they say or do will affect the user’s perception. Is this just a prank then? We sincerely hope so!
