The rumors which have been going on for a while seem to have escalated because of one picture where Zhang BinBin and his manager were inside a crowded elevator. He can be seen slinging one arm around his manager and waving to people with the other hand. It seems to have kickstarted the gossip mill with reports saying that Zhang BinBin’s manager used her position to conveniently book more work for Zhang BinBin that could have gone to the other stars of Jaywalk Studio. At the news, some fans have allegedly decided to boycott the actor.
Now, I don’t know just how many fans are we talking because Zhang BinBin’s weibo account seems relatively unscathed. I’d like to think that most people are not so irrational anyway. One picture is hardly enough to conclude anything, and the actor obviously has nothing to hide by how casually he’s looking into the camera. I’m calling a bluff on these until proven otherwise. Even if it were true, he should be free to date who he wants.
