A Hong Kong tabloid (this one, though the story has been removed) claims that a disgraced Chinese politician named Bo Xilai ratted out actress Zhang Ziyi by saying he paid to have sex with her 10 times between 2007 and 2011.
The media reports said that Zhang and Bo were first introduced by Bo’s associate, Xu Ming (who reportedly) confessed to paying Zhang (roughly $950,000) in 2007 for sex.
He later negotiated a deal for Bo to have sex with Zhang for (roughly $1,500,000).
The Chinese media reports estimated that Zhang’s sexual transactions with various rich and powerful figures have netted her (close to $110,000,000) over the last 10 years.
Zhang has angrily denied every word of this, but it’s also sort of a back-handed compliment. A hundred and ten million dollars? Every little girl in China that Nike pays in radon and punches in the stomach must be completely in awe right now.
(has it really been three years since Ziyi went to the beach and took her top off? that was rhetorical because, yes, it has been.)
