WANG Lee Hom was labelled a bully by a bakery in Taiwan after the newly-wed Mandopop singer returned the wedding biscuits he pre-ordered following allegations that the shop had used him to seek publicity.
Wang, whose sudden marriage to Columbia University postgraduate student Lee Jinglei had shocked his fans, apparently ordered the biscuits through his manager.
He had wanted to distribute them to his loved ones, China Press reported.
Earlier, he had given photographs of himself and his wife to the shop so that their images could be featured on the packaging of the biscuits.
However, the pictures were later leaked to the press. This upset the 37-year-old Wang, who is known to be guarded about his private life.
So he decided to return all the biscuits to the bakery, which then lodged a police report and called Wang a bully for his “shocking” behaviour.
Wang retaliated by accusing the shop owner of “twisting the truth”.
Lee, who is reportedly a good cook, decided to bake biscuits herself as a gift to their loved ones.
The victim was having supper with his girlfriend and her brother when a man approached him and demanded that he return a sum of money.
It seemed that the money had been a loan which was earlier taken by the victim’s friend.
The victim rejected the demand to return the money. The man left but returned shortly with three others and an argument broke out.
Later, the trader was found dead in a pool of blood in the toilet.
