"Legend of Zhen Huan" actress denies being victim of domestic abuse

27 Sep – Chinese actress Sun Qian recently took to social media to deny rumours that she was a victim of domestic abuse.

As reported on Oriental Daily, the actress, most known for her performance as the maid Cui Jinxi in "Legend of Zhen Huan", sparked such rumour earlier when a screenshot of her posting about the topic circulated online.

The screenshot had Sun sharing a photo of some bruises on a leg, stating, "Domestic violence on a woman who was pregnant and who was breastfeeding. How can one do it? Explain it to me!"

After speculations arose that she had been abused by husband Cai Yuanhang of whom she's been married to since 2013, Sun took to Weibo to clarify herself.

She wrote, "It's not me in the photo. My family and I have always opposed domestic violence, and the injured woman is someone I know. I want to warn the perpetrator and hope that they will stop harming the victim."

Sun said that she would continue to pay attention to the progress of the incident, and added, "I'm sorry for causing everyone's concern. May all girls in marriage be treated well."

It is noted that Sun's child is already five years old, which means that she could not be the "pregnant" and "breastfeeding" victim she spoke about in the post.
