Chinese actor Gavin Gao Yunxiang (高云翔), who is currently on trial in Sydney, Australia for sexual assault, has all of his assets frozen.
Beijing’s No. 1 Intermediate People’s Court has ruled that all assets from Beijing Yexuan Culture, a company invested by Gao and his wife Michelle Dong Xuan (董璇), to be frozen. It’s been reported that Zhejiang Talent, the production and distribution company behind The Legend of Ba Qing <巴清传>, has filed for protective measures on the assets of Gao and Beijing Yexuan Culture, totaling 63.82 million yuan. The application was approved as of January 4, 2019.
Zhejiang Talent’s reasoning behind the freeze is because of Gao’s sexual assault case, which has impeded the promotions and broadcast The Legend of Ba Qing. It is speculated that Zhejiang Talent plans on claiming compensation from the actor.
The Legend of Ba Qing also stars Fan Bingbing (范冰冰).
In addition, broadcasting plans for upcoming dramas such as Son of Hero <惊天岳雷>, Tango <探戈>, and Anaya’s Love <阿那亚恋情>, all which starred Gao, are put on hold. If these dramas fail to achieve a broadcast date, it is highly possible that its producers will also be asking for compensation from Gao.
