Taiwanese singer-actress Makiyo revealed that her mother’s condition has worsened ever since stopping her chemotherapy.

As reported on Apple Daily, ever since her fourth stage lung cancer diagnosis in September 2011, the singer’s mother has been undergoing chemotherapy. However, she decided to stop the treatment due to allergies, and relied on traditional Chinese medicine instead, not forgetting to attend regular check-ups at the hospital at the same time.

However, on 12 January, Makiyo revealed that her mother’s condition has worsened since her last check-up in December, where the doctor found that she had fluid in her lungs.

The 63 year-old woman remained stubborn about being hospitalised, saying that she would rather be at home than lie on the hospital bed like other patients. She also revealed that she is allergic to Western medicine.

When asked about her mother’s condition, Makiyo stated, “She was happier after stopping chemotherapy and felt less pain. But she has problems breathing now. I even get nightmares every night, most of them about losing someone I love or a misfortune befallen me. It made me very nervous.”

She also revealed that the doctor has advised her mother to drink more water and urinate to improve her renal function.

The actress also revealed that she has reduced her entertaining activities and returns home early to keep her mum company, but will be busy promoting her two films after Lunar New Year.

Makiyo of Taiwan who allegedly beat up a taxi driver a few months back, burst out laughing in court when the audio of the incident was being played, according to the May Daily website.


In the recording, Makiyo could be heard shouting, “Beat him up! Hit him!” She also said, “What do you want!” in a dirty dialect slang. Though Makiyo has admitted that it was her voice, she said it was very characteristic of her drunk self.


She then further claimed that her Japanese boyfriend Takateru Tomoyori was not involved in the beating of the 55-year-old driver.


The taxi driver’s wife was furious over the matter citing that she would never forgive the two for assaulting her husband and lying in court, she plans to appeal the case to the High Court


She said the two were “disrespectful” when addressing the court.


While Makiyo and her boyfriend managed to buy their way out of jail-time with an outside settlement of NT$ 3 million (S$ 127,000), the plaintiff declined to withdraw the charges.


On 15 Mar, prosecutors had asked for a suspended sentence of two years for Tomoyori and one year and four months for Makiyo.

Following weeks of controversy, Taiwan singer-actress Makiyo and her male Japanese friend Takateru Tomoyori arrived at a settlement with Lin Yu Jun, the cabby driver they attacked last month, during the second hearing of their cabby assault case at the Taipei District Court on Thursday, reported Taiwan media.
The cabby driver who was attacked by the pair, offered to settle the case for NT$3.8 million (S$162,500).

This sum was later brought down to NT$3 million (S$128,000), following discussions between the lawyers of all three parties.
According to Tomoyori’s lawyer, Tomoyori and Makiyo will come up with NT$1.5 million (S$64,100) each.

In light of the settlement, prosecutors have also revised the penalties they sought for Makiyo from a four-year prison term to a 16 month-term, which they propose to have commuted to four years probation, pointing out that she had no prior convictions and deserved a slightly lighter sentence.

They also accepted Tomoyori’s explanation that he had only assaulted Lin for Makiyo’s sake and revised the six-year jail term they originally sought for Tomoyori to a two-year jail term, which they proposed to have commuted to five years probation.

Makiyo appeared visibly relieved after the settlement was reached, and stood silently beside her lawyer as she addressed the media after the hearing.
“I believe Makiyo will work harder to resolve the problems she presently has. I hope everyone can forgive Makiyo and give Makiyo a chance to turn over a new leaf,” said the star’s lawyer.

Toyomori also took some time to speak to the horde of reporters who gathered around him when he exited the Taipei District Court.
“I am grateful to the judge and the prosecutors for giving me another chance. I apologise to the whole of Taiwan society for my actions and hope Lin recovers soon,” said Tomoyori.
