After dating for over nine years, Chinese Internet celebrity Grace Chow confirmed last week that she had broken up with Taiwanese pop superstar Show Lo. Chow shocked fans by writing a post on Weibo, accusing Lo of cheating on her with multiple women and even having orgies.
Chow disclosed that as she scrolled through Lo’s cellphone, she found out he has another phone that he used to cheat on her with others — including “Butterfly Sister” Linda Chien in his management agency and his makeup artist. “And even worse, you guys would often have ‘group activities’ that normal people can hardly imagine,” she also accused.
Although Lo issued an apology twice the next day, netizens have been pressuring three Chinese reality shows to replace him as a co-host. Produce Camp 2020, one of the three reality shows, has already removed Lo’s profile from its official Web site. The Liberty Times reported that he could suffer financial losses of about NT$360 million (US$12 million) from this ugly breakup.

It’s my retirement, and I’ll veg if I want to (2/5) 這是我的退休生活，我愛怎麼耍廢就怎麼耍廢！（二） A: You can’t spend your entire retirement vegging out. Your brain will turn to mush. Your muscles will atrophy. B: It’s my retirement, and I’ll veg if I want to. A: You’ll get bored. You’ll need to find something to occupy your time and your mind. B: I did think about taking up the cello, actually.
