Zhang Ziyi denies having sex with Bo Xilai and threatens to sue Hong Kong and Taiwan media

The original report came from U.S-based citizen journalism website ‘Boxun’ which said that Xu Ming, president of the conglomerate Dalian Shide in China’s northeast who has been detained due to his close ties with Bo Xilai, confessed that in 2007 he gave Zhang six million yuan (US$945,000) for having sex with him.
Zhang, who is currently filming in Guangzhou posted on her Weibo yesterday morning denying the allegations:
“Coworkers deride the fabrication (Boxun’s report) and ask ‘what is the big deal’? … It is not necessary to fabricate, just imagine anything. Frankly speaking, it is mental masturbation,” Zhang posted.
In a later post in the evening, Zhang appeared to take on a tougher stance against Apple Daily and said she felt “chilled to the bone and deep sorrow” over the “slander and smears” it had published.
“We will demand justice in law. We will dig you out from your dark corner and follow up the inquiries,” she added.
Once a high-flying politician tipped for higher positions in the Chinese Central government, former Chongqing mayor Bo Xilai’s sudden fall from grace is nothing but spectacular.
Bo has not been officially charged yet for any offences and his current whereabouts is unknown as the media continues to leak and expose sordid tales of his numerous sexual exploits.
