1st June 2021 – (Hong Kong) Edison Chen Koon-hei is a Canadian-born Hong Kong actor, singer, rapper, fashion designer and entrepreneur. Chen is the co-founder of CLOT, a Hong Kong-based streetwear and fashion label. In 2015, Chen went into a relationship with Chinese model and actress Qin Shupei. In August 2017, Chen confirmed the birth of his daughter, Alaia. As of 2021, Chen currently resides in Los Angeles, California with his wife and daughter.
However, a netizen leaked recently that during the pregnancy of his wife, he was sending Instagram messages to a female fan on 22nd June 2019. The messages were made public only recently. The female fan revealed that she was chatting with Edison Chen between November 2016 and January 2017. She was surprised that Edison Chen replied to her message and he asked her to meet in a hotel in Shanghai. He even said ‘Are you ready to fxxk’ me hard?’ However, the woman refused his invitation twice. Edison Chen has not responded to the incident.
In January 2008, Chen was involved in a widely publicised sex scandal when sexually explicit nude photographs of himself taken four years earlier became widely circulated on the Internet. Chen was never accused of uploading the photos himself and a computer technician was later sentenced for accessing Chen’s computer during a repair. Celebrities implicated in the scandal included 8 victims: Cecilia Cheung, Gillian Chung, Bobo Chan, Candice Chan, Vincy Yeung, Mandy Chen and Rachel Nga. Nude photos of Edison’s ex-girlfriend, Vincy Yeung, were also made public and the future of their relationship was the subject of intense media gossip. Three years later, Chen was involved in another photo scandal, this time with a 16-year-old Hong Kong model Cammi Tse. Their relationship was revealed after photos of them together hugging and kissing each other were leaked online and later, the 16-year-old model stated that her phone was lost.
