Arthur Chen’s Intimate Photos are Leaked
Renowned Chinese director Chen Kaige’s (陳凱歌) son Arthur Chen, 22, (陳飛宇) has been nicknamed as the “Most Handsome Second Generation Celebrity”. After making his debut in the entertainment industry, he quickly shot to fame and appeared in Lighter and Princess <打火机与公主裙> and is the upcoming boys’ love drama Immortality <皓衣行>. Yesterday, Arthur’s intimate bed photos with influencer Yi Lin (是亦琳呀) were leaked on the Internet. As rumors of Arthur cheating with a married woman spread, the photos immediately became trending searches.
Lying in bed in deep sleep, the man in the photos was topless from the waist up. The woman took the selfie while resting on his shoulder and her full face was not visible. Netizens pointed out that the mole at the corner of the man’s lip was 99 percent similar to Arthur’s features.
It is said that Arthur and Yi Lin started dating since 2021, and were witnessed having numerous rendezvous at a Changsha hotel. With 210,000 social media followers, Yi Lin graduated as a top student from Tsinghua University. Although four years older than Arthur, she has a youthful face. Since 2017, she has been Arthur’s fan and was seen following him in a fan cam.
Netizens were shocked by the pair’s bed photos, especially since Li Yin is already married. In a leaked audio clip, Arthur’s studio manager was heard claiming that Arthur was set up. They allegedly only went to bed once, but Li Yin took photos to threaten him to continue seeing her and demanded he avoid filming dramas with certain actresses. Her new boyfriend started asked for money, and Arthur’s mother considered paying 2 million Chinese yuan to get back the photos, but the negotiation fell through. Li Yin’s husband later sold the photos to a tabloid.
Last night, Arthur’s studio issued an official statement stating that Arthur and Li Yin were both single when they were dating. Li Yin’s company’s official statement also shared that it was a mutual agreement to break up, and she only got married one year later to her current husband.
