When music producer Chen Lingtao was exposed by his ex-girlfriend earlier in the week for two timing her with former Rocket Girl Meng Meiqi, many people thought his statement admitting to the affair sounded a lot like a suicide note. “Let things end here, I will end everything” said the music producer. With the recent developments to this story however, it’s looking highly likely that Chen Lingtao did indeed attempt suicide.
After the music producer’s post went live, there were rumblings that he was rushed to the hospital soon after to get his stomach pumped after allegedly swallowing two sleeping pills. In his latest post, he writes, “I wholeheartedly thank the Beijing Police, medical staff, Officer Sun, all the uncles and aunties for giving me a second life.” He also expressed his regrets to everyone who worried for his well-being and to people who look up to him to set an example.
More importantly, Chen Lingtao also took the opportunity to apologise to the two women he’d inevitably hurt with his actions. To his ex-girlfriend “Flower”, who he acknowledged to have hurt and who was closely involved with the management, finances and contracts of his company, the producer admitted that their break-up and her subsequent departure was not handled properly. As for the allegations that Meng Meiqi was the other woman who caused the break-up between himself and his long time girlfriend, Chen Lingtao says that he kept the truth from her and denies that Meiqi was a third party.
Actions have consequences.
