A Taiwanese star is in headlines after his personal life went for a major tailspin.
Unfortunately, Taiwanese news outlets have outed actor/singer Aaron Yan after he was accused of dating three men simultaneously.
Photos and text messages involving the 32-year-old were shared by one of the allegedly cheated on boyfriends with news sources.
This boyfriend, who remains anonymous, recounts Yan being a caring and compassionate boyfriend. Yan paid for the boyfriend’s rent, an airplane ticket to go abroad, and introduced him to Yan’s friends, according to the Shanghaiist.
After two years of dating however, Yan allegedly became more distant. This spurred on investigation from this boyfriend who later discovered that Yan was dating two other men. The boyfriend then chose to share the evidence with news sources and to out the celebrity.
Aaron Yan’s sexuality and alleged three boyfriends soon became the biggest news in Taiwan and China. Yan’s manager then tried to diffuse the situation by saying that Yan wasn’t cheating on three men. He says in the photo to the left, Yan’s hairstyle is different indicating it’s an older photo. The manager also says that the man in the other two photos is the same person.
“There is no cheating going on,” said the manager in a statement. “We will be discussing how to deal with these fake reports with our lawyer.”
Then yesterday, Yan published an official statement apologizing for his personal drama becoming so public. That said, he did not address whether the allegations are true or not.
“I am deeply sorry for failing to properly manage my private life, causing it to be revealed in such a way,” Yan wrote. “I’ve always treated everyone with sincerity, but I’m also an ordinary person with my own shortcomings, failings, and feelings.”
“I once revealed my true feelings to another person, but, when it ended, I didn’t properly handle the situation and it turned into something that I did not expect,” he added before apologizing to his loved ones, fans, and his label.
No matter what, Aaron Yan, who started out as a member of boy band Faranheit, has had a major hit to his public persona and reputation.
Several people are discussing the situation on social media.
