Taiwanese singer Christine Fan is standing by her husband, television host Blackie Chen.

Fan, 48, wrote two posts on social media on June 21 after the P. League+ final on June 20.

The Taiwanese men’s professional basketball league was founded by Chen, 47, in 2020, and he served as chief executive before stepping down in 2023. He is currently the deputy commissioner of the league.

Chen was embroiled in Taiwan’s #MeToo scandal in June 2023 after he was accused by actress Tina Chou of sexual harassment in 2012. He has denied the allegations.

“Thank you, big baby, for persevering through all the obstacles for four years and devoting so much time and effort to Taiwanese basketball,” Fan addressed Chen in Chinese.

“I hope River and Ryan can be like their father when they grow up, being able to move forward bravely with firm belief and the courage to face hatred in whatever they do.”

She added: “No matter what happens, remember that you have the strongest backing from your whole family. So proud of you.”

The singer, also known as Fan Fan, shared several photos of herself with Chen and their nine-year-old twin sons at Taoyuan Arena.

She earlier congratulated New Taipei Kings for winning their first title after defeating Taoyuan Pauian Pilots 103-97 in overtime to clinch a 4-1 victory in the best-of-seven series.

Some netizens commended Fan for her unconditional support and love for her husband.

However, there were others who hoped Chen would have the courage to take responsibility, and that his sons would not learn the wrong things from their father.

Fan has since deleted the second post from Facebook, although it is still up on Instagram. – The Straits Times/Asia News Network
