OTHER NEWS & VIEWSCOMPILED BY YVONNE LIM, BEH YUAN HUI and A.RAMAN
NANYANG Siang Pau reported that sex photos and videos of a couple - believed to be that of Chinese official Lei Zhengfu and his mistress - have been leaked on the Internet.
The pornographic recordings have spread like wildfire online, with netizens crowning Lei with the nickname of “Lei Guan Xi”, naming him after Edison Chen “Guan Xi”. Edison is known for his sex scandals including one that involved several A-list female celebrities.
Lei, secretary of the Beibei District Committee of the Communist Party in Chongqing, has been accused of keeping his mistress for “quite some time”.
An online post also attached an official photo of Lei next to a photograph of the sex act in a move to get surfers to make their own comparison of the actors in the videos.
> Stephen Chow's eagerly awaited movie Journey to the West: Fell Monsters Chapter, is set to hit cinemas during the Chinese New Year next year.
Major Chinese dailies quoted the Hong Kong actor-director as saying that he would not be taking on any roles in the film.
“I'm too expensive, I can't even afford (to hire myself),” he joked while releasing the first poster and teaser of the movie in Beijing, China, on Tuesday.
Producer Wang Zhonglei, however, said Chow did not want to act because he wanted to concentrate on his director's role.
Journey to the West: Fell Monsters Chapter will be the first film by Chow in four years after 2008's CJ7.
