Top topic among people in the wife's and mine age rank this spring festival: the stolen sex tape pictures from Hong Kong star Edison Chen, the Sexgate.
So this dude is a famous singer slash actor, and bedded recently quite an impressive amount of chinese female stars (god knows how many before, the thieves probably didn't steal all his tapes, and he probably didn't film every girl he seduced). The tape and / or pictures were not even stolen from his apartment, no no, that'd been real easy: He handed his personal computer to a company to fix it, something must have been broken, and one of the employees there is now either sitting in Hawaii drinking Pina Coladas or he has been caught and rots in jail... Who knows?
Anyway, like every other famous dumb ass, he filmed every one of the above mentioned females in various actions: fellatio, stripping for him, erotic / pornographic posing... And of course he filmed himself too, giving them oral pleasure and whatnot.
Background to the Edison Chen Sexgate
But Hong Kong is not America and most likely this 'incident' wont boost his career Paris Hilton style. No, this is China, where correct behavior (kind of) still values and where such a thing might even get you killed. Quite a lot of people, if you trust rumors, are insanely angry at Edison now. He did not only sleep with a married, rising star with child (who now faces divorce), no, he also got some stars in his bedroom who really had reputation before this scandal. And their reputation was based on years of exercise and millions of Hong Kong dollars from their production companies who stood behind them.
If you really, really believe in rumors, then you might even believe that one of the production companies set out a ransom on his head. But that's a bit far, I guess. But then again, he currently is 'hiding mode', as number one source says. Nobody knows if he's in China, Hong Kong or Canada, where he seems to have a home, too. Clever from him, to release his so called 'press conference' on YouTube, filmed in front of a white wall.
What a mess he created, I really don't want to be in his shoes right now...
It would take me way too long to explain every one of these women's fame and Edison Chen, so go ahead and read into it deeper on other sources if you'd like. They made a real witch hunt out of this happening here in some chinese boulevard newspapers, analyzing the hell out of each image.
He should find out where the 'anonymous sex tapers' self-help group meets and join Rob Lowe, Pamela Anderson, Severina Vuckovic, Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, R Kelly, Keeley Hazell, Carolyn Murphy, Tonya Harding, Fred Durst, Colin Farrell and all the other stars who stepped into the sex tape trap before him...
Shanghaiist is now reporting rumors too, about some big mafia dudes in Hong Kong.
