So the crazy news coming out of China in the last few days is that Chinese hottie Zhang Ziyi of CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON fame is allegedly a high-priced call girl, fetching millions of dollars for nights spent with some of the most powerful men in Chinese government and business. Quoting the story:
Among those with whom the actress was alleged to have had sex for money is disgraced politician Bo Xilai, ousted from China’s powerful politburo amid allegations he and his wife were involved in the murder of Old Harrovian businessman Neil Heywood.
Miss Zhang, 33, one of China’s biggest film stars and a three-times Bafta nominee, is the most prominent name to date to be dragged into the scandal over Bo. According to reports in China, she slept with Bo at least ten times between 2007 and 2011 in exchange for ‘huge’ monetary gifts. The secret trysts are alleged to have taken place in Beijing and to have netted the actress around £1million each time.
The pair are said to have been introduced by Xu Ming, a Chinese businessman who is said to be worth £444million but is reportedly under investigation by the Beijing government over alleged corruption.
Mr Xu, 41, has reportedly claimed to authorities that he paid Zhang £600,000 to have sex with him for the first time in 2007 and that he later negotiated a deal for a similar liaison with Bo.
Mr Xu is said to have paid Miss Zhang a total of £18million and it is alleged that the actress – who also starred in Rush Hour 2, House Of Flying Daggers and Memoirs Of A Geisha – made millions more from similar deals with other rich and powerful figures.
Ms. Ziyi is denying all this stuff, which makes sense, as it does sound pretty nuts to me. Maybe she needed the money, but that's a lot of cash. Who the hell needs that much cash? Plus she's world famous and no doubt has money from that, not to mention her former billionaire fiance, who was still with her when some of this was supposedly going on. Beyond all that though, I can't really see her doing that. She doesn't seem like the type. It could be her sweet outer disposition is clouding me to her potential inner slut, but I doubt it somehow. Until some solid proof comes out, I'm calling shenanigans on this one.
