BY2‘s Yumi was said to have attempted suicide, after the 29-year-old Singaporean singer faced backlash for cheating rumors with Leehom Wang (王力宏). She has been discharged from the hospital after she was ascertained to be medically stable.
Yumi Admitted into Hospital
Yumi’s friend, known as 做个小孩007, sounded the alarm on Weibo on December 22, “Yumi swallowed some pills and her stomach is being pumped at the hospital! @LeehomWang you know that Yumi did not intervene in your marriage! If something happens to her, I will never forgive!”
The friend blamed Leehom for not clearing Yumi’s name, after the singer’s ex-wife Lee Jinglei (李靚蕾) called out the pair for having an affair. While Yumi claimed to have dated Leehom before his marriage in 2013 and had “deleted each other as Wechat friends by 2015,” Jinglei exposed photo evidence that Yumi had messaged her topless photo to him in August 2015.
However, the friend claimed, “The topless photo is not Yumi. It’s obvious that it’s a foreigner; [Yumi’s] figure is not as good.”
Yumi Called Hospital Herself?
Called out for her questionable behavior and attacked by netizens, Yumi was said to be troubled and attempted to take her own life. However, a netizen claims that Yumi did not try to commit suicide and her life was never in danger.
The netizen revealed screenshots in which a medical staff, who worked at the same hospital where Yumi received treatment, commented on the incident. “I was shocked by BY2 [Yumi’s] suicide [rumors]. She was admitted to our hospital at 5 a.m. after taking two vitamins and melatonin pills. She called the emergency room herself…. [I] laughed over the [suicide] rumors because her vitals are very stable, and she already left the hospital at 9 a.m.”
Netizens were curious why Yumi was sent to the emergency room if she only took melatonin pills, which aid insomnia. It was pointed out that if someone possessed suicidal tendencies, it does not matter what she had ingested as the hospital would need to ascertain her vital signs.
