In the internet age, anything a celebrity does or says is often magnified in the eyes of the public, and it seems that we have yet another case of people getting too carried away by any hint of interaction with the opposite sex. A case in point is a photo posted by singer-actor Wang Yibo that has gotten netizens speculating that he has a girlfriend that he’s hiding.
On Feb. 3, Wang Yibo posted a photo to promote Chanel No. 5 on both his Weibo and its social app Oasis. In the photo, he can be seen putting his hand on the perfume. However, some eagle-eyed netizens took notice of a long-haired woman’s reflection on his gold ring which sparked dating rumors. Their suspicions only grew as Wang Yibo subsequently deleting the photo was thought to be done out of guilt.
That same night, YIBO-OFFICIAL issued a statement explaining that Wang Yibo was at work at the time. The photo was taken by staff and the mystery woman is a staff as well. They also explain that Wang Yibo deleted the Weibo post due to issues with the platform, but the photo on Oasis is still very much available. They hope that everyone can respect the truth and to stop reading too much into things.
