THINGS appear to be looking up again for Chinese actress Fan Bingbing (pic), who attended several public events in one day, reported China Press.
Fan, 39, who was banned from TV and films in China due to her tax-evasion scandal, was seen rushing to two events recently.
She was photographed attending a cosmetics launch, where she served as the brand ambassador followed by a party organised by a fashion magazine in Shanghai.
She wore a modest green gown at the first event while appearing in a purple number with a plunging V-neck in the second.
Fans speculate that brands, many of which have earlier shied away from her, finally decided to give Fan a second chance at celebrity endorsement deals.
Fan had been finding it hard to continue her career in the entertainment industry after being slapped with a 880 million yuan (RM540mil) fine for tax evasion in 2018, which was touted as one of China’s “biggest tax evasion penalties in history”.
> The autopsy report for recently-deceased Taiwanese singer-actor, Alien Huang, confirmed that he had died of cardiovascular complications, the same daily reported.
The Shilin district public prosecutor personally handed the report to Huang’s father on Oct 27.
The report reached the same conclusion as an earlier post-mortem, which found Huang to have died of aortic dissection, which then led to a blockage of his blood vessels.
Huang, 36, was found dead in his home on Sept 16.
Initially, there was speculation that his death might have been due to a freak accident at home, but autopsy findings concluded that he had no external injuries.
An aortic dissection is a life-threatening condition which occurs when the inner layer of the aorta – the large blood vessel branching off the heart - tears.
