Crystal Huang and Huo Siyan’s Blog War Goes to Court
Rumored love rivals, Crystal Huang (黃奕) and Huo Siyan’s (霍思燕) public spat last October has arrived in court! It was rumored that Huo Siyan was the third party in Crystal Huang and ex-husband, Jiang Kai’s (姜凱) marriage, leading to the pair’s eventual divorce. Siyan posted three insulting messages regarding a “spitfire celebrity wife,” and a “fat, oily husband” which was widely known in targeting Crystal. When Siyan refused to apologize for the defamatory remarks, Crystal decided to sue her in court!
Crystal said that Siyan maintained the posture of a victim in her interviews, despite her inflammatory posts on Weibo. Siyan’s remarks had a direct impact on Crystal’s reputation. On October 25th, Crystal’s lawyer issued a letter requesting Siyan to remove her defamatory Weibo posts. Claiming that she never received the lawyer’s letter, Siyan retained the offensive posts online.
In the litigation, it was understood that Crystal sued to have Siyan remove the three defamatory Weibo posts, apologize publicly on Weibo, as well as pay for Crystal’s litigation fees.
Crystal and Siyan’s court hearing will encompass sensitive testimonies involving their private affairs. Thus, the two mainland actresses elected to not have a public hearing.

Jayne: Crystal has given Siyan enough time to remove the defamatory blog posts. They must be bitter rivals for them to be unable to settle this outside of court.
