On April 25th, Taiwanese entertainer Linda Chien (愷樂) took to Instagram to publicly apologize to mainland Chinese social media influencer Grace Chow (周揚青), who had dated Show Lo (羅志祥) for nearly ten years before finally calling it quits. Grace exposed Show for cheating on her with multiple women, and also revealed upsetting details about Show’s messy romantic relationships. Linda was one of the celebrities implicated in Show’s cheating scandal.
“I want to sincerely apologize to Ms. Grace Chow,” wrote Linda on Instagram. “I’m sorry, and I want to say sorry to all those who love me.”
Better known as Butterfly, Linda had been Show’s co-host in the long-running variety show 100% Entertainment <娛樂百分百> since 2011. The two were briefly rumored in 2010, but they vehemently denied dating. In a 2011 episode of 100% Entertainment, Linda’s own father went on the show as a guest, and asked Show when he would be paying the family his bride price. The normally quick-thinking Show immediately looked too embarrassed to say a comeback. Linda changed the topic by saying, “Baba, you’re really good at this!”
According to the Taiwanese media, Linda was the same company artiste whom Grace mentioned in her exposé of Show’s infidelity. After Grace revealed Show’s infidelity to the world, Show reportedly contacted Grace, saying that he would be willing to publicly apologize in order to protect “his family’s health.” He also said he would make Linda apologize as well. The exchange was so Grace would not publicly reveal more evidence, including some which were screenshots of Show’s intimate text messages with Linda.
A close friend of Linda said she had shut off her phone in the days following the scandal reveal. Her friend said Show had always been Linda’s type—“handsome and funny”—which was why Linda was willing to be the third person in the relationship. Although Show and Grace are no longer in a relationship, it is unlikely that Show and Linda will continue to be together.
