TAIPEI -- Taiwanese-American singer and actor Leehom Wang has threatened to sue individuals and the media if they continue to spread rumors about him and his newly married wife that paint them in a negative light.
“False rumors on the Internet and in the media have affected the lives of me and my family. My representatives will seek legal recourse to handle the issue if more false rumors are reported without any verification,” Wang said in a statement released Tuesday.
The 37-year-old Wang took to his Weibo and Facebook pages on Nov. 27 to disclose his romance with his girlfriend, Lee Jinglei, for the first time. The couple then tied the knot in the United States a day later.
The singer's announcement of his romance and marriage has drawn a swarm of media attention and speculation, including reports that portrayed Wang's wife as a party girl and that she broke up with her ex-fiance to be with Wang.
