This hasn't been a good year for Hong Kong singer G.E.M Tang ' not only did she go through a nasty third party in Chinese stars Zhang Jie and Xie Na's marriage.

Recently, G.E.M's image took yet another hit when compromising photos that supposedly showed her baring the upper half of her body were circulated on the Internet.

Rumour had it that the photos had been uploaded by a fan of Korean boy group EXO, who suspected G.E.M of souring the relationship between her and EXO's fans by using the popular group to gain publicity.

When the scandal broke, the EXO fan immediately clarified that she was not the one who exposed those photos, while G.E.M's fans angrily stated: '[We] hope for netizens not to spread rumours; the identity of the female in the compromising photos must be confirmed.'

Some netizens found that although the female in the photos has features that are similar to G.E.M's, the latter's misaligned upper and lower jaws ' caused by a problem with her left jaw ' is not distinctly shown in the picture; hence, many suspect that G.E.M is not the female in the photos.

On Wednesday, the 22-year-old, who is currently holding a concert in Dalian, responded to the rumours through a spokesperson: 'these pictures are obviously not of G.E.M. Since they are fake, we don't have to respond to it.'

The spokesperson added that as there have been too many erroneous reports about G.E.M recently, they will be dealing with this through the law.

The singer herself left a comment on her Weibo before the concert started: 'Is 10kg of cotton or 500g of metal heavier? I won't let myself fall for the same thing twice. I swear that I will wipe my tears and give the audience who love me the best concert tonight!'

Kevin Cheng and Ruco Chan filmed an intense face-off scene in Tuen Mun for TVB’s new crime thriller, Eye in the Sky yesterday. Both men held a gun in their hands and appeared to be caught in a fiery dispute. Portraying the ultimate villain in the series, Ruco appeared on set with red eye makeup to give the impression that his character had several sleepless nights. The scene spoke of Ruco’s character holding a group of people on a tour bus hostage. Although the atmosphere was intense, Ruco and Kevin immediately relaxed when the camera stopped rolling and made funny faces to pull out of their characters. Kevin announced that the series will likely complete filming by the end of this month. Despite an earlier foot injury, Kevin shared that many of his action scenes were not affected. However, he had to be extremely careful and has even stopped playing his favorite sport, tennis. In August, another series is already waiting for Kevin. With a full-packed schedule coming up, there will be no breaks ahead for him.

Kevin and Ruco Laugh at Tavia Yeung’s Marriage Rumors

Eye in the Sky costar, Tavia Yeung, was recently rumored to be purchasing a luxurious flat in preparation to marry her boyfriend Him Law next year. Kevin laughed and said that Tavia has only told him she is interested in making investments. When asked if he has heard about any marriage news, Kevin replied, “No, I haven’t! But Tavia is always a very cheerful person.” Ruco, who was nearby, also laughed and added that purchasing a new home and getting married are happy events. He joked, “Why don’t you guys congratulate me ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Sire Ma's ex-lover, Wang Zi Qi releases a statement: "I often received similar videos and photos from her"

Yesterday, after the video of Sire Ma doing a provocative dance in sexy lingerie was leaked out, Sire released a statement through SMS, saying she "definitely loved wrongly". Moments after, at approximately 11:30pm last night, Sire Ma's ex-lover, Wang Zi Qi also released a statement: 

(1) When I was with Sire Ma, she often sends me videos and photos such as the ones leaked today through WeChat. But after I saw her real "face" and motives, I already deleted them ages ago! As for how the video and photos were leaked, I have no idea!

(2) I was not able to resist temptation and fell into a "horse" sickness (*play on words with Sire Ma's name, as Ma is "horse"). Losing my most beloved person in this lifetime is my life's greatest pain! A person who uses relationships to cheat money are not worthy to talk about love! I had kept silent until today because I had given my true feelings (to that person), but if someone tries to twist the truth, then I will take action to protect myself! There is a bottom life for my endurance! 

(3) In terms of love, it was me who had no resistance, that's why she had the chance to take advantage. This also led me to do a series of ridiculous things, and seriously hurt my family and my friends who love me. Thank you to my older sister and my father who pulled me back from the edge of the cliff. 

(4) Some media outlets took the Weibo that I posted early morning on the 23rd and fabricated the meaning of it. When I posted that, the ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

A video clip of TVB artiste, Sire Ma doing a provocative dance leaked out. Today, she returned to Tseung Kwan O TVB City to see executive, Virginia Lok. Afterwards, she was accompanied by Communications co-director, Tsang Sing Ming to see the reporters. Sire Ma's jobs are officially all stopped indefinitely; when she was being interviewed, she burst out crying three times. 

Once blindly trusted someone 

Asked when the video clip was filmed? She replied: "The clip was filmed last year, it's been quite a while already. I've already called the police. Today, the Regional Crime Unit went to my house to record my statement. I have already described all the detailed information and situation to the police, so there may be some details that I am not able to tell everyone here. (Is the clip filmed by yourself or someone filmed for you?) It is not filmed by me, nor did I ever have a copy. The police will help me investigate about the clip. (Who filmed it?) The person is obviously someone I was once very close with. Like I said in my statement, I once blindly trusted someone very deeply, I believe many people can become quite blind in love. There are many things you can learn a lesson from. Once you are deep into a relationship, you will always think that these situations will never happen to you. I know now that only you can protect yourself, so as a girl, you really should never film such videos or take such pictures." 

Admits that there is more than one video clip

Asked if there is more than one video clip, Sire Ma stated: "I actually really don't know. No matter ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Well-known hip-hop artist and entertainer MC Mong announced that he would return to his musical roots for the first time in four years with the release of a new album this year.

MC Mong is reported to have signed an exclusive contract with entertainment agency Wellmade Yedang and is working on an album to be released in September or October.

The star’s last album release was his fifth studio album “Humanimal” in 2009. Shortly after, he was caught up in a legal scandal that temporarily halted his career.

MC Mong left the public eye for nearly four years after being charged with violating the country’s mandatory military service laws in October 2010.

Evidence that Mong had deliberately tried to dodge his military enlistment led to a public outcry, which halted his public appearances, both on stage and on TV programs.

The artist debuted as part of the hip-hop group People Crew in 1998, but his career took off after he branched out as a solo artist. MC Mong is also widely known for his collaborations with popular stars including SG Wannabe, Jo Sung-mo and g.o.d.’s Kim Tae-woo.

Entertainer Yoo Chae-yeong, a prolific singer, actress and radio DJ, died yesterday at a hospital in northwestern Seoul.

She was 40.

The cause was gastric cancer, her family said, which she was first diagnosed with last year.

At the time of her death, Yoo was surrounded by her husband, family members and close friends.

On Monday, the media publicly announced that she had been battling her illness for months, overcoming some critical complications. However, she ultimately lost her fight with cancer, passing away around 8 a.m. yesterday.

Yoo first found out that she had Stage 4 gastric cancer last October during a regular physical exam. She underwent surgery and was later able to resume her normal activities after she was discharged from Severance Hospital in Sinchon, northwestern Seoul.

However, her condition had recently deteriorated, her husband told the press this week, and she was checked back into the hospital earlier this month to receive additional treatment.

Ilgan Sports, an affiliate of the Korea JoongAng Daily, said Yoo had previously undergone surgery to remove the cancerous cells, though by that time it had spread to other parts of her body. She then continued with chemotherapy.

Yoo first made her debut at 17 years old as a member of the singing group Punsudeul (Idiots) in 1989, when she was still in high school. Afterward, she worked to expand her presence on stage, joining the group Cool in 1994 and catching the media’s attention with her shaved head, a bold hairstyle rarely seen on female celebrities.

She left the group a year later, going on to make up one half of the duo US.

Yoo went solo in 1999 with her hit song “Emotion,” which contributed to the nationwide spread of techno music.

She then branched out in the entertainment industry, showing off her comedic timing in a number of talk shows.
