Carrie Wong and Ian Fang have released statements regarding the leaked controversial and explicit messages between the two actors. Actor Boris Lin has now broken his silence regarding the controversy surrounding his girlfriend, Carrie Wong.
On May 14 (Tuesday), a series of sexually explicit Instagram messages between Wong and Fang were shared by an internet user. In the leaked messages, both actors also seemed to have talked about Lawrence Wong in a rather unpleasant tone. The conversation had allegedly happened in February, and both stars have confirmed that they had indeed been the ones talking in the leaked screenshots.
Carrie Wong was in a relationship with Boris Lin, while Ian Fang was rumoured to be dating actress Rebecca Lim when the messaging transpired. Both sets of relationships are still on-going.
Wong and Fang have filed police reports regarding the leak of their private conversations on Instagram, according to The Celebrity Agency (TCA) which manages the two actors. A TCA representative acknowledged that the leaked messages, although “conducted in jest”, were still “distasteful and inappropriate.”
Lin has also released a statement regarding the controversy. Lin, represented by a lawyer, posted the statement on his public Instagram account accompanied by a photo of Wong and him.
“We are very good, thanks everyone!
Now that it has come to this, I believe I have a duty to explain the situation to everyone. I believe that when my other half needed me, I wasn’t there for her. I really haven’t done enough for my other half.
Mr Fang and my other half are really good friends who are always joking with each other. They are more candid and relaxed with each other when they talk.
When it comes to this whole incident, I believe that apart from Mr Fang being more proactive with what he said, my other half did not do anything wrong.
I hope that after this matter blows over, Mr Fang will stop coming in between our relationship and that he can respect his own life and the friends around him.
I want to thank the public for their interest in us and for their support which was the biggest source of motivation for us to keep on going. The matter has now become a legal issue, and those who disseminate and forward the clips may face up to two years of imprisonment. And those who disclose private information of others may face up to five years of imprisonment.
We feel bad to have troubled the media.
Thank you Mediacorp for your assistance and thanks everyone once again. We are good.”
