&x201C;Isn&x2019;t this rumor too fake? What love nest are they referring to? I have seen this model apartment in many different interior design magazines in the past!&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she rolled her eyes. &x201C;Don&x2019;t they need to give credit when using photos taken by someone else nowadays?&x201D;
&x201C;Why were you looking at those magazines?&x201D;
&x201C;Is that really the main point here?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she glared at Vera.
When Lu Zongye was pestering her in the past, she had thought about moving countless times. Why couldn&x2019;t she look at interior design magazines then?&x201D;
&x201C;I have received some information from your brother about the source of these rumors. Yao Fan is almost done with her role as the first female lead in
&x201C;How did Yao Fan react to this matter?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked Vera.
&x201C;I think that you should ask Yao Fan that question yourself.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning returned Vera&x2019;s cell phone to her before she quickly walked out of the studio. After getting into her car, she took out her cell phone and called Yao Fan immediately.
The phone rang for a long time but it seemed as though no one was answering the call. Jiang Yuning waited a little longer and finally, Yao Fan answered the call. Jiang Yuning could hear the exhaustion in Yao Fan&x2019;s voice as she asked, &x201C;Hello my little disciple. What&x2019;s the matter?&x201D;
&x201C;Teacher, are you okay?&x201D;
&x201C;What else can I feel? As an artiste in the entertainment industry, we have all been in this sort of situations before&x2026;but I am just upset. I think that everything between me and Chenxing will definitely be over now. I am certain that he would want to be with a woman who has a clean background&x2026;and I&x2026;have a past. I am unsure if I would ever be able to explain and clarify the situation to him.&x201D;
&x201C;Why would there be anything that you cannot explain to him?&x201D;
&x201C;Little disciple, you are really very cute and innocent. You are also really lucky that you are born with so much confidence in yourself. Anyway, Director Shen Guobang is already asking for me. I will catch up with you when I come back in a few days&x2019; time. See you.&x201D; After speaking to Jiang Yuning, Yao Fan hung up the phone with a heavy heart.
&x201C;Actually, I have heard some news about Yao Fan in the past,&x201D; Vera said as soon as she saw Jiang Yuning putting down her cell phone. After carefully observing the expression on Jiang Yuning&x2019;s face, Vera continued speaking. &x201C;I heard that her family used to be very poor in the past. Her troubles began when her brother was involved in a car accident that resulted in the death of the other party. The family of the deceased then demanded a huge compensation and in order to pay off the debt, Yao Fan got herself a gold sponsor. Of course, this incident happened many years ago. Therefore, I am not sure if she is already a free person now or if she is still indebted to her gold sponsor.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning did not say anything because all she could think of right now was all those years that she had spent trying to fight and defend herself against Lu Zongye.
A helpless person would feel plenty of negative emotions and this would naturally push them to subconsciously make many wrong decisions. However, she did not know why but she had absolute trust in Yao Fan.
This was because Yao Fan had experienced many difficult things in the past and in a way, Yao Fan was just like Vera and herself.
However, Jiang Yuning believed that as long as the person had a good and sincere heart, and as long as they did not have a guilty conscience, they would definitely be able to prove everyone wrong eventually.
After the scandal involving Yao Fan was spread all across the internet, the people who had reacted the greatest were none other than the Fan-Xing fans. After all, even though there had been countless rumors surrounding either Song Chenxing or Yao Fan in the past, they had successfully fought through all those rumors unscathed.
However, since the Fan-Xing fans existed because they were rooting for a romance to develop between their idols, the fact that Yao Fan had a gold master meant that she was no longer pure and clean.
This kind of Yao Fan was not worthy to be together with Song Chenxing.
[I am no longer a Fan-Xing fan now! Bye!]
[I did not expect Yao Fan to be so dirty and cheap.]
[How could she call herself a fairy? Everything was just a lie from the start! I will never be a fan of anymore romantic threads in future! Goodbye everyone.]
[Yao Fan, don&x2019;t you think that you are letting all of us down by acting this way?]
[Yao Fan, you are so dirty.]
At this time, the crew of
&x201C;Brother Chen, are you watching the news again?&x201D; Song Chenxing&x2019;s assistant quickly asked when he saw Song Chenxing staring at his cell phone with a frown on his face. The assistant could not help but quickly step forward to get closer to Song Chenxing. He was afraid that Song Chenxing would act the way he previously had and post some comments online again without giving him or his agent a heads up.
Although his previous posts did not lead to any bad consequences or negative publicity, Song Chenxing&x2019;s agency was extremely surprised at his action.
&x201C;If you are looking at the news about Sister Fan, you should just calm down because you know how it is like in the entertainment industry. If two parties encounter a resource struggle, it is inevitable that one of the parties would turn around and try to bring the other party down using despicable means.&x201D;
&x201C;What I am more curious about is how these Fan-Xing fans can just turn their backs as fast as flipping the pages in a book?&x201D; Song Chenxing asked with a puzzled look on his face. Although he had already been in the entertainment industry for many years, he had rarely ever been involved in any scandals as he was a very low-key person and had always steered clear of gossips.
Since he was rarely involved in any scandals, he rarely paid attention to any news in the entertainment circle. Therefore, he was really shocked and surprised when he saw how quickly the fans turned their backs on the Fan-Xing couple even though they had already rooted for them for such a long time.
&x201C;Brother Chen&x2026;what are you going to do? Please tell me in advance before you do anything. Stop scaring me. I am so nervous that I feel as though my heart is going to stop beating now.&x201D;
&x201C;Then I suggest that you go see a doctor now,&x201D; Song Chenxing replied as he handed his cell phone over to his assistant.
His assistant took a look at the cell phone and suddenly felt as though he wanted to burst out in tears. Would he still be able to delete his comment?
Song Chenxing had replied to one of the Fan-Xing fans who had insulted Yao Fan and unexpectedly, Jiang Yuning also joined the party.
@SongChenxing: Replied @HeavenAndEarth: I think that your mouth is dirtier.
@JiangJiangLovestheScenery: I totally agree, teacher! @SongChenxing: Replied @HeavenAndEarth: I think that your mouth is dirtier.
Oh god. Were these two people not afraid of the repercussions of their comments?
Things escalated quickly on the internet and in a blink of an eye, the news that Song Chenxing and Jiang Yuning had openly criticized one of the netizens had already spread all over the internet. Although Song Chenxing and Jiang Yuning&x2019;s fans were initially very amicable, it was only natural for their fans to follow in their footsteps, now that both of their idols had come out to openly defend Yao Fan.
[Oh my god. Our Brother Chen is so amazing. He is fighting for justice for Yao Fan! He is proving to be a true friend in times of need.]
[Our little Ningning is also very supportive!]
[Aren&x2019;t they both the best friends that Yao Fan could have?]
[All the Ginger Candies must defend Yao Fan because she is our Sister Yuning&x2019;s teacher!]
Yao Fan was really touched when she saw the comments on the internet.
This was because she would never have imagined that someone like Song Chenxing, who was always so stoic and cool, would actually come forward and speak up for her at this time. At the same time, she was also very happy because her silly little disciple, Jiang Yuning, did not hesitate to defend her even though Jiang Yuning was already facing plenty of criticism of her own as a blacklisted artiste.
&x201C;Otherwise, you can just come forward and tell them the truth. After all, there are really not many people who would put themselves at risk just to defend someone else nowadays. After you give it your best shot, you will then know for sure if these people are truly worthy of being your lover or friend,&x201D; Ada suddenly told Yao Fan after reading Song Chenxing and Jiang Yuning&x2019;s comments. &x201C;Stop hiding in your shell. You have to come out of it already. You did not do anything wrong or shameful at all.&x201D;
Yao Fan put her cell phone away before she nodded her head. &x201C;Okay, I understand. I know what I have to do now.&x201D;
Therefore, after filming their scenes for the night, Yao Fan sent Song Chenxing a text message asking him to leave later as she had something to tell him.
Although Song Chenxing did not reply to her text message, he continued sitting down on his chair and waited until only a few people remained on set.
&x201C;I did not&x2026;&x201D; Those was the first three words that Yao Fan said to Song Chenxing after she took a seat beside him.
&x201C;You did not what?&x201D;
&x201C;I will admit that I did have a gold sponsor in the past, but I did not have any sort of inappropriate relationship with him as you might have imagined. The only thing that I did was to borrow some money from him. You might not even believe what I am telling you now because why would anyone believe me?&x201D; Yao Fan said as she started laughing at herself.
&x201C;I believe you,&x201D; Song Chenxing replied Yao Fan immediately.
Yao Fan opened her eyes wide in shock as she stared at Song Chenxing in disbelief. &x201C;Do you&x2026;really believe me?&x201D;
&x201C;That year, my younger brother was involved in a car accident that took away the other party&x2019;s life. The family members of the deceased demanded for a compensation of 1,360,000 yuan. That was a very huge sum of money for our family at that time. I did not know what to do, but I knew that I had to help my family. Fortunately, one of my classmates with a very wealthy family background had offered to lend me a helping hand. He told me that he would not take advantage of me because there are times when everyone would be facing their own difficulties.&x201D;
