On January 29, Singaporean duo By2 released a statement through their studio with the message, “Lee Jinglei, see you in court!” Earlier this month, they had challenged Wang Leehom’s ex-wife Lee Jinglei to provide evidence after the latter insinuated that Yumi Bai was a third-party in their marriage. They also included a lawyer’s letter directed at a portion of online users spreading defamatory comments to stop infringing on Yumi’s rights or they will be taking legal action.
Translation of the statement from By2 Studio:
Earlier, Miss Lee Jinglei publicly insinuated that Yumi intruded in her marriage and asked for the contact information of the police to provide evidence.
The truth is: Yumi and Wang Leehom dated from 2012 to 2013 and it was known by all of their close friends. There was never any intrusion in other people’s marriages.
When confronted, Miss Lee Jinglei has shifted the focus many times and has yet to provide any evidence. Perhaps because police stations and courts don’t compare to the virtual world, maliciously misleading and fabricating evidence are crimes. From beginning to end, we have been trying to defend our rights.
The feedback received from the police so far is:
Miss Lee Jinglei is not in the Mainland, so the Mainland police could not summon her immediately. Nonetheless, we took action and finally took the first difficult step in defending our rights and filed a lawsuit in court.
The law looks at the evidence, not the “little essay”.
The Internet is not a place outside the law. In a society ruled by law, we should never ignore the law! In order to satisfy her selfish desires, Miss Lee Jinglei used netizens to drive public opinion and kill people through cyberbullying.
It may take us hundreds of days or more to hold the rumour-mongers accountable, but we’re willing to work for it. If, as a public figure, you do not have the courage to defend your rights, how will more victims of cyber violence deal in the future?
We may have to experience obstacles that are unimaginable to everyone going forward. But we still believe in justice, choosing to hand over everything to the legal system and waiting for a fair judgment. @李靚蕾Jinglei See you in court.
Lee Jingllei Has Not Yet Responded
Lee Jinglei who lives in Taiwan received a wave of support after her first round of accusations against ex-husband Wang Leehom last December. She had also called out By2’s Yumi by tagging her online. Reports say Yumi attempted suicide. Furthermore, By2’s Miko went online to say that the person closest to her was in the hospital.
The back and forth between Lee Jinglei and Wang Leehom resumed earlier this month before simmering down. In response to By2 tagging her and claiming they messaged her to cooperate with the police, Lee Jinglei previously posted a clip seemingly showing that By2 studio never sent her a message. By2 had strong words for Lee Jinglei today. Lee Jinglei who has kept silent for over two weeks already has yet to make a response.
With different parties involved saying different things, it seems that public opinion is becoming mixed as the scandal drags on. Some are calling for Lee Jinglei to release the evidence that she says she has.
Very interesting.. i think lee jing lei is in trouble now 🤔
Want to know the result .. Lee really isn’t convincing
She should bring the receipts to court if she has receipts.
Lee Jinglei is busy with the divorce proceedings, so she had no time for these two drama queens. But they must have known that, hence why they decided to sue her now since she will not have ample time to response to them. Defamation? Mind explaining why did you delete that “HomHom” IG post? Hmm? And why you act out that fake suicide act?
@Shasha- wow your logic is strange to say the least. An accused has to wait and see if the accuser is not too busy before taking action to defend him/herself ? This makes sense to you ? Hmm….
Have you been keeping up with this matter? Lee Jinglei has been known to give swift response to every accusations being thrown at her so far. That is why those two drama queens waited until she was busy to sue her + send out the lawyer’s statement. That way, Lee Jinglei will not be able to give her usual swift response, and they will have enough time to sway the netizens to their side. The netizens have grown weary of waiting for Lee Jinglei’s receipts, so they would choose to support those two for the heck of it. And they did waited for the right timing. They did said they will see her in court before, but they strangely took their sweet time.
And yes, my logic is strange. That is just the way it is. Do you have problem with people with different opinion?
Actually you are right being busy cannot be an excuse but she might have gotten an court’s injunction by Leehom so she is legally unable to comment on line. That is most likely scenario and these 2 know that. So she has been gagged by the court and they are using it. I have no doubt that LJL will kill them in the court. She is not stupid we have seen that. LJL will speak again.
@DuLu That would be pitiful if that is the true. Still, isn’t it suspicious that it took them this long to issue the lawyer statement? I have seen several news where celebrities sue others for defamation, and it did not took them long enough to post their statements on the social media. Hence why I think they were looking for the opportunity when Lee Jinglei were too occupied, so that they can safely post the lawyer’s statement without worrying for her response and receipt.
This will be embarrassing if the wife has real evidence revealing the true identity and actions of the mistress. It will also be embarrassing if she doesn’t.
If Jinglei falsely accused Yumi Bai, then she needs to apologize sincerely. If not, then Jinglei better brings her receipts!!!!!
Lee JingLei has no receipts that’s why she’s quiet and I hope the court teaches her and everyone else that cyberbullying and spreading false rumors online a big lesson.
It feels like the words “innocent until proven guilty ” no longer applicable. Everyone have the rights to defend themselves using legal means if they were accused of something. If they are found guilty by the court/ judge, then they will face the consequences, if not found guilty, LJL should properly apologise.
Well, I think as an O party (observers party), we all should just wait and see for LJL to respond then make up our minds. Same with by2 chick, read and observe and comments on the articles but don’t bother flooding their IG or whatever social media feed they use, until you have evidences?
I’m so sick of seeing these twins in the headlines. I never even knew who they were until this entire scandal. I wish I could just ignore it, but it’s like seeing a train wreck, you just can’t look away. I completely understand their point of view that their reputation has been dragged in the mud. If I was truly innocent, I’d stand up for myself like they are too. But their little legal notice isn’t going to do anything. She’s a Taiwanese citizen, and as far as most of the rest of the world is concerned, Taiwan is still an independent country. China is not going to extradite her or anything.
While I admire LJL standing up for herself against WLH, who clearly has more money, more resources, and more power than her. I don’t think she needed to name names and get third parties involved. If she’s going to call people out so directly, she better have real hard evidence to back it up or else everything she’s said will now be scrutinized. Even if everything else she said was true and this is the only lie/misunderstanding, people will no longer trust anything she says.
