THIS STORY reads like Edison Chen Photo Scandal 2.0. A Hong Kong female singer finds herself a victim of a sex scandal when pictures of her behaving intimately with her ex-boyfriend were leaked on the Internet.
Shiga Lin, 23, was shocked to find that old photographs of her with K-Chek, a relatively unknown rapper, have been exposed. There are also another batch of photos showing K-Chek with another girl – Rainah, the 22-year-old wife of FAMA member 6Wing.
The pictures were taken in 2004 – most probably at K-Chek’s place – and showed a then 16-year-old Lin locking lips with K-Chek and nibbling at his ears, while the latter was seen showing his middle finger.
On Tuesday, a teary-eyed Lin had a press conference and admitted that she took the pictures with K-Chek, who was her ex-boyfriend during her high school years. She revealed that K-Chek was a friend of her classmate and they dated for a year before breaking up over personality differences.
Lin said she agreed to take the photos because she loved K-Chek very much and trusted him then.
When asked whether they had a sexual relationship, she replied: “We had done things that a couple would normally do. At this moment I don’t feel like talking to anyone. I have received a lot of text messages from my friends, but I need time to get over this.”
She said she had no idea how the pictures ended up being leaked and was shocked to find out through her friends.
“I don’t know and I don’t want to know (how),” she said.
The singer went on to reflect on her previous mistakes and promised to move on from the unpleasant episode.
“I used to hit the clubs and do a lot of meaningless stuff when I was young. Now I will work harder,” she said, adding that her career is not affected so far.
There are parties – including 6Wing – who suspected that this could be a publicity stunt orchestrated by K-Chek, who is releasing an album soon. However, Lin chose not to speculate, maintaining that she has zero contact with her former flame.
Meanwhile, 6Wing is furious that his wife was dragged into the controversy. The rapper defended his wife, saying that he was aware of her previous relationship with K-Chek and pointing a finger at the latter for allegedly broadcasting the intimate details of their relationship just to court publicity.
According to him, Rainah has turned over a new leaf since they tied the knot last year. She has since stopped hitting the clubs and become a good mother and wife, he said.
According to Asian Universe, recently a magazine published intimate photos of Shiga Lin and a rapper K-Chek. Yesterday Shiga held a press conference where she tearfully admitted she liked playing and partying during her teen years. Loved and trusted K-Chek, she took intimate photos with him and admitted she had a sexual relationship with him at the school age of 16. However, Shiga won’t try to get down to the source of where the pictures leaked. She just hopes from now on, she can start from fresh.
Yesterday at the press conference, Shiga appeared expressionless. She took a deep breath and expressed: “I admit I have dated the young man in the photo. We have taken intimate photos before. At the time, I only took those photos because I really loved and trusted him. As for how these photos leaked, I really don’t know nor will I go find out.”Shiga appeared very tensed and didn’t look at directly at the camera, but instead kept her head down. She couldn’t hold in her tears, so the staff handed tissues to her. She admitted as she teared up, she was ignorant as a teenager and made mistakes: “I admit I liked to go play and party as a teenager, done a lot of ignorant things and wasted a lot of my time. In the recent years, I really want work hard on my jobs. This incident has worried my family, friends and company, I really want to come out and bravely face the things I’ve done.”
During interviews with the press, Shiga admitted she met K-Chek through a classmate and dated him for a year. As for K-Chek implying they had a sexual relationship, Shiga expressed: “These things will happen when a boy and girl are dating. (Will there be even more erotic pictures?) In my memory, they isn’t. I don’t think I will go further on how this incident happened, I just feel very disappointed, really unhappy and it’s very sudden.”
Shiga sobbed as she said the set of photos do indeed exist (its real), but she does not know the other female victim (Six Wing@FAMA’s wife). Is she worried her boyfriend might leak out more photos? She said: “No, there will definitely be intimate photos when dating because you really like that person and want to keep photos for memories. Pictures will be taken for each relationship.” Shiga is thankful to have her family and company’s support and understanding. In the future, she will concentrate on her work and will protect her personal photos.
