Zhang Ziyi To Newspaper: I’m No Escort!!
Zhang Ziyi is demanding an apology from a Hong Kong newspaper and other outlets that reported she was paid millions of dollars to carry on a sexual relationship with scandal-smeared Chinese politician Bo Xilai and is now the target of a government investigation.
Per various media reports, Boxun alleged that a billionaire pal of Bo’s introduced him to Zhang and that, since 2007, he has paid her millions of dollars for sex—and that the Memoirs of a Geisha star has pocketed $100 million from liaisons with multiple high-ranking, deep-pocketed government officials over the past 10 years.
Of course, Zhang Ziyi is denying the whole thing.
