What other celebrities besides Call Me By Fire’s Li Yundi have been caught dating prostitutes ?, Entertainment News
Yesterday (October 21), the last episode of the hit Chinese reality show Call Me By Fire showed concert pianist Li Yundi mosaicked with parts of his scenes cut out.
Suspect a lot? This has naturally led internet users to wonder if the famous musician is the latest Chinese celebrity to be blacklisted by the government.
It all became clear later that day when Chinese state media People’s Daily revealed that Yundi had been detained in Beijing on allegations of prostitution – prostitution is illegal in China. A 29-year-old woman named Chen was also detained with him.
At a time when China is lashing out at its showbiz industry and law-breaking stars, it looks like the road ahead will be tough for the 39-year-old. The Chinese Musicians Association has already removed him from membership.
Of course, Yundi isn’t the only celebrity to be caught pulling down their pants with a prostitute; here are others, in Asia and Hollywood, which should have been more discreet.
