It’s a little surprising how one’s actions can affect so many others. Many netizens thought it would be the end of things after Chinese artist Li Yifeng (李易峰) was arrested for soliciting prostitutes. However, it seems his downfall may be causing the collapse of several others!
Through some rumours of a very messy romantic relationship, favoured artist GOT7’s Jackson Wang (王嘉爾/왕잭슨) has somehow been dragged into the mess. To make matters worse, a long-time fan page of Jackson recently announced it was closing. Now, fans are wondering if it has anything to do with all the rumours!
After Yifeng’s arrest was announced on 11th September, people started revealing more about Yifeng’s past. One netizen in particular, Douyin personality Guo Ziyu (郭子瑜), dropped quite a bombshell. Ziyu not only claimed to have been in a secret relationship with Yifeng for three years, she also alleged that he cheated on her. However, Ziyu didn’t focus her ire on Yifeng. Instead, she targeted his then-partner, internet celebrity Blase湾湾.
“I really want to know, Miss (Blase), if (Yifeng) was with you in Thailand and Xishuangbanna, how could he have dated me for three years then?” she asked. Ziyu went on to question why Blase had even acted that way. “Were you possessed? Would it kill you to just work hard? Would it kill you to have self-discipline? (I) really can’t understand this,” she added.
Ziyu confirmed that Lifeng had been seeing other girls during their relationship, including sex workers. However, she could only provide chat records between her and a friend as proof. When asked about it, Ziyu explained they had never taken photos together, nor had she secretly taken some on her own. But, she was willing to dig up her chat records with Lifeng as proof. Ziyu also claimed she wasn’t bringing the issue up for clout as she could have done so earlier.
However, the reveal inadvertently brought Jackson into the mess. As it turned out, Blase had been the key. She had apparently been the link between Lifeng and former BIGBANG member Seungri (승리). Lifeng supposedly met Seungri while filming in South Korea in 2018. While their friendship blossomed, some suspected Seungri of hosting a party for Lifeng at his notorious Burning Sun club.
Blase was also rumoured to have dated Jackson Wang at one point. The duo supposedly met in 2018 by chance at a nightclub. Blase was later noted to have followed Jackson’s activities in Shanghai and even posted behind the scene photos with Jackson’s staff. However, not everyone believes the hearsay.
But there’s no denying that things have gotten fishier. Just yesterday (12th September), Jackson’s long-time fan group on Weibo announced shocking news. The moderator of Wangga0328 was going to close it down. The group had been there since Jackson’s debut in 2014 and had lasted for over 8 years. “I hope you will always remember the original intention and courage (from) when you set off, and be worthy of your heart,” they wrote as a final goodbye.
The cryptic message has left many curious about what sparked the group’s closure. However, some speculate that the moderator has simply not been able to keep up maintaining the group. Others think it could be because Jackson has not been very active on the entertainment scene nowadays. But, some are certain it has to do with Lifeng and Blase.
Jackson has not said anything about the issue, nor has he mentioned Lifeng or Blase. However, some fans are worried that this will affect Jackson’s reputation and are sincerely hoping no bad news will come from him in the future.
