15-Year-Old Chantel Yiu Gets Caught in Video Controversy

Becoming a breakout star after Stars Academy <聲夢傳奇>, Chantel Yiu (姚焯菲) is one of TVB’s most promising young talents. However, the 15-year-old was caught in a controversy, after her alleged intimate video and photos surfaced online on June 23. The case is now contested in court.

Hailed as “Nation’s First Love” due to her cute and sweet image, Chantel had stated that her main focus is school and her music career. However, keen-eyed fans noticed that Chantel has been frequently spending time with a mysterious male friend named Marcus Kwok. Going to a theme park recently, Chantel uploaded a solo photo of herself, but some netizens noticed a male figure in the reflection.

Photos of the couple’s intimate photos allegedly circulated online, and Marcus hinted that the photos may have been leaked by someone in their circle. “You can’t trust anyone,” he had posted online.

TVB manager Virginia Lok (樂易玲) met with Chantel’s parents and consulted with a lawyer over the issue. Ms. Lok noted that a full-investigation will take place to find out who was behind the malicious posts targeting Chantel. On June 30, TVB also issued a statement that the videos in questions were defamatory and false in nature.

As Chantel’s father, Mr. Yiu, has applied to the Hong Kong High Court to start a civil lawsuit over the incident, no further details have been revealed as the case has entered the judicial process.

  1. Dunno who she is but 15??!! Geez that’s young. Also wouldn’t those videos constitute as child p….?

  2. At fifteen to have intimate photos exposed like that is sad. Something tells me it was done by someone very angry. I do wonder if the young guy involved did it himself for fifteen minutes of fame. It is not a pleasant situation, no matter how you look at it.
    I do hope that these fans do learn to wake up from the innocent and pure image they have of these celebrities, the young, the old and the in between ones.

  3. I mean it sounds like it’s a group thing, so unlikely to be anything really scandalous. Even if it’s somewhat intimate poses, she’s allowed to have her own private life as a teen.
