Meng Meiqi has made an official apology for the incident.
The Chinese entertainment industry is having the second large-scale boycott this year, and the one to start it is none other than WJSN’s Meng Meiqi, who was recently accused of being the third person to come between a famous producer and his girlfriend.
Recently, Meng Meiqi took part in an interview with Sina and apologized for the recent events. Here is a summary of the main points of the interview:
– Meng Meiqi admitted that she was in love with Chen Lingtao for a short period of time, the two actually went to Tibet (China) to travel. However, the relationship between the two has soon ended.
– Meng said that before entering this relationship, she asked to confirm with Chen that he was then single and was answered that he had broken up with his ex-girlfriend. That’s why she started dating him.
– Meng Meiqi wanted to apologize to fans, the online community and Chen Lingtao’s ex-girlfriend. She expressed, “I’m very sorry that my incident has drawn society’s attention. For this incident, I would like to apologize to her and am very sorry that this has affected her personal life.”
Earlier, famous music producer Chen Lingtao’s girlfriend accused Meng Meiqi of having an affair with him, who is now her ex-boyfriend. According to the captured messages this person posted, Meng Meiqi sent Chen Lingtao private messages to ask him to travel together and have sexual contact despite knowing he was in a relationship.
After that, although Yuehua Entertainment (Meng’s agency) made an official statement denying that Meng Meiqi was having an affair, the online community still did not believe it. As for Chen Lingtao, when the scandal broke out, he made a long post on Weibo with content that sounded like a will, as he wrote that he wanted to leave his property to his family and friends, and delegate his work to friends.
In the past 24 hours, the name Meng Meiqi has covered Chinese social media. After admitting the rumors and apologizing, the idol was boycotted by Chinese audiences nationwide. The brands and entertainment projects she signed with have also started to boycott her.
Among them, the SNS account of her new movie project “Breaking Through” has deleted her photo, which was posted to celebrate her birthday on October 15, showing a decisive move to eliminate the idol.
On the other hand, Meng Meiqi is a Chinese member of the popular KPOP group Cosmic Girls (WJSN), which is also the group of Cheng Xiao and I.O.I member Yeonjung.
