CHINESE actress Fan Bingbing once again shocked fans after rumours of her spending more than 410,000 yuan (RM240,000) on a meal in Shanghai circulated online recently, reported China Press.

The 38-year-old actress, who was attending the Shanghai Fashion Week, was photographed dining at what is known to be Shanghai’s most expensive restaurant.

A photograph of the receipt of Fan’s purported meal was leaked online, which showed a total cost of 410,000 yuan.

It was reported that the minimum spending at the restaurant is 40,000 yuan (RM24,000)

However, it was later revealed that the receipt actually belonged to a prince from Dubai who was hosting guests.

Fans speculate that Fan, who was hit by a tax evasion scandal last year, could not afford to dine at the restaurant.

In 2018, Fan was slapped with an 880 million yuan (RM530.4mil) fine for tax evasion.

Fans have also noticed a striking resemblance to 27-year-old Dilraba Dilmurat, a popular actress of Uyghur ethnicity.
