While Edison Chen (陳冠希) seems to have settled down after becoming a father in March 2017, his promiscuous habits have not completely disappeared. News emerged that the 40-year-old had texted a female blogger asking for sex two times, while his wife Qin Shupei (秦舒培) was pregnant.
In a long post titled, “I Ghosted Edison Chen Twice,” the female blogger tells her encounters which occurred in 2016. Uploading screenshots of their conversations, she claimed the star asked for hookups at his hotel, and she stood him up twice.
The two met online when she messaged Edison through Instagram, and he surprisingly replied to her. As they continued messaging via WhatsApp and WeChat, he suddenly asked if she wanted to meet up at a hotel in Paris. She dodged the question, but still wanted to stay in contact.
Half a year later in November 2016, Edison again reached out to the woman and said that he would be in Shanghai. He texted, “U wanna meet and play????” He asked if she “wanted to confirm it now and make the date” for December 17, 2016. Days before the set date, Edison’s messages grew more urgent and he wrote explicitly, “Are you ready to f**k hard?” and “Can’t wait to f**k me hard? Hahahah.”
Because Edison asked to meet at 4 a.m. in the morning at his hotel, the woman already fell asleep and stood him up again.
Though they did not have any intimate encounters, Edison did video call her. When she asked Edison about his then girlfriend (Shupei), he responded irritably, “None of your business.”
Edison also asked if she was interested in signing with his company as a singer after listening to a song she wrote. Stating that she is not a professional and has no intentions of becoming a singer, the two broke off all contact and have not talked since.
Netizens noticed the timestamps of these conversations, and saw that the dates coincided with Shupei’s pregnancy.
Though the woman’s blog post about Edison was published online in 2019, it trended on social media and gained widespread media attention this week.
While Edison did not come forth to comment on the blogger’s claims, the sex texts seem to match with the star’s communication style. In 2011, actress Gloria Wong (黃榕) had also revealed that Edison texted her for a hookup while he was dating Vincy Yueng (楊永晴). After all these years, Edison’s old habits have not changed.
