Although married with two children, Benny Chan‘s (陳浩民) flirtatious nature landed him in trouble again. He was spotted feeding a woman noodles at a shop in Hengdian and their intimate behavior sent tabloids abuzz.
A few days ago, Benny dined at a noodle shop with two women, in which one of the ladies is his female assistant. His attention was focused on his other companion, an attractive long-haired young woman in a black shirt. The woman playfully hit Benny while she laughed at his funny stories. Benny poured his soup into the woman’s bowl and started feeding her the noodles. After lingering for one hour, Benny’s car dropped of the woman at her hotel and Benny and his assistant returned to their own hotel.
Rose Chan Scandal
Benny’s image was scarred after the Rose Chan (陳嘉桓) scandal in 2011. Benny was photographed kissing and fondling Rose under her shirt while sharing a meal with Joe Ma (馬德鐘) in Hengdian. As Rose was only 19 years old at the time, Benny was regarded as preying on a young actress and taking advantage of the situation. Although Benny cried and apologized in a press conference with his pregnant wife in tow, few forgot the incident.
Benny became a father again when wife Lisa Jiang (蔣麗莎) gave birth to a baby boy in 2013. Benny expressed happiness that their family was complete with a daughter and son, and often shared playful photos of his children on his Sina Weibo blog. The family put the Rose Chan scandal behind them and appeared united; Lisa often glowed in their family vacation photos.
Benny’s Manager Responds
Did Benny forget the boundaries of married man and failed to curb his behavior in front of other women again?
Benny revealed that the woman in the black shirt is a crew member of Benny’s drama, A Happy Life <天天有喜>. He said, “I’m sorry. It was originally a very simple matter, but it was magnified to this extent. I’m sorry towards [my friend].” He will consider legal action if the slanderous reports persist.
Benny’s manager explained that Benny had treated his friend too warmly. His manager said, “The woman and Benny are both undergoing slimming diets, so they met up for noodles. She told Benny that she was cutting back on her food and cannot eat meat, so he placed vegetables in her bowl. People who know Benny well are aware of his warmth. Whether it is a male or female friend, he will take care of them.
“Benny has already apologized for his past mistakes. In the last few years, he has been working hard for his family. Whether in private or in public, he is a good husband and father. These are qualities that cannot be allowed to be destroyed.”
