After winning 2017’s Idol Producer <偶像練習生>, Cai Xukun (蔡徐坤), was one of the biggest young idols in China and made regular appearances in variety show Keep Running <奔跑吧>. Entangled in a two-year court battle with his former company over contract disputes, Cai Xukun finally won his case. Trouble is again brewing, as the 24-year-old is accused of demanding an ex-lover to get an abortion.
Today, a blogger on Weibo exposed that Cai Xukun slept with a woman known as “Miss C” in 2021. After finding out that Miss C was pregnant, Cai Xukun’s mother stepped in and tried to resolve the issue by demanding her get an abortion.
Allegedly, Cai Xukun’s mother was worried that Miss C was fabricating the pregnancy and had hidden cameras installed at Miss C’s house to monitor her. The media caught wind that Cai Xukun’s mother originally promised to pay Miss C a 500,000 Chinese yuan compensation fee for the abortion, but the amount was eventually reduced to CNY 200,000.
In the voice recording that was leaked, Cai Xukun’s mother was heard instructing a staff member, “I don’t think she would be willing to go [get an abortion] this easily…. [When she does get the abortion], whether it costs CNY 100,000 or CNY 200,000, we should pay the money on the day of and just withdraw the whole sum at once. We don’t have to pay her the entire amount in one shot. There’s very little trust when it comes to issues like these.”
Although the voice recording was released today, many netizens already caught whiff of the abortion rumors in August 2021. There were online rumors that Cai Xukun slept with one of his fans and originally offered CNY 500,000 for the abortion. Although the pregnant fan denied the amount, the story was kept fairly quiet for two years until the recent turn of events where the paparazzi managed to obtain the voice recording of Cai Xukun’s mother.
When reached for comment, Cai Xukun curtly said, “I’m not aware,” on the phone before hanging up. Neither Cai Xukun or his mother have directly addressed the allegations.
