International Chinese celebrity Zhang Ziyi (章子怡) was rumored to have been barred from leaving China after investigations revealed that she allegedly had paid sex with former top government official (薄熙来) more than 10 times.
The news was first leaked by U.S. registered Chinese-language website Boxun and reported widely by Hong Kong and Taiwan papers, but not in mainland China.
According to unnamed sources, the pair’s sexual liaisons were arranged by Bo’s associate, the 41-year-old billionaire Xu Ming (徐明), who is founder and chairman of Dalian Shide Group.
Xu confessed that he paid Zhang 6 million yuan ($946,000) in 2007, after sleeping with her for the first time before arranging other ‘bedroom deals’ on her behalf with Bo in the same year for 10 million yuan.
Between 2007 and 2011, Bo and actress Zhang had sex at least 10 times – all in Beijing, including at Xu’s guesthouse in the capital’s Xishan.
It is estimated that Zhang has pocketed at least 700 million yuan ($110 million) from sexual transactions over the past 10 years, including 180 million yuan in cash from Xu.
Her vast wealth from prostituting herself was not taxed due to intervention from Xu and other government officials.
Zhang has been absent from the Cannes Film Festival and the Palme d’Or awards this year.
