Jiang Yuning spent the next few days preparing for her upcoming audition.
On the other hand, the production team for
Initially, the guest members were supposed to record a promotional video before shooting the second episode of the program. However, on that night itself, many entertainment bloggers started posting articles and contents about a celebrity whose name was not disclosed. Unfortunately, even without disclosing the name of the particular artiste, the identity of the said celebrity was obvious to the public and netizens.
&x201C;A certain blacklisted artiste was recently intimate and slept with another upcoming artiste during the recording of a certain variety show. These two celebrities apparently did the unthinkable and acted inappropriately behind a pile of wild grass during the show!&x201D;
&x201C;This blacklisted artiste was never a simple person to begin with. Now that she has already signed an employment contract with a big and reputable entertainment company, she feels that she can just sleep around without any repercussions.&x201D;
With all this information, the netizens and fans did not even need to think twice before they directed all these rumors and accusations towards Jiang Yuning. After all, the only blacklisted artiste who was constantly on the news nowadays was Jiang Yuning.
Moreover, she was currently participating in the recording of a new season of a variety show and she had also recently signed an employment contract with Guangying Media.
As for the upcoming artiste, that would be none other than Jin Mingchen.
When the netizens saw the news on the internet, they could not help but to reply and comment on the articles. They felt that they were all being amazing detectives like Detective Conan.
[The blacklisted artiste is definitely Jiang Yuning and the other party involved would be Jin Mingchen!]
[No way! Are you sure they are that reckless? Can&x2019;t they control their urges while they are in the midst of filming a variety show? Were they really that uncontrollable?]
[Jiang Yuning is single anyway after her engagement has been annulled. Jin Mingchen is also a single man. So, it&x2019;s not really an issue for both of them to be in a relationship, right?]
[But Jin Mingchen is four years younger than Jiang Yuning!]
Very soon, the rumors surrounding Jiang Yuning quickly reached Ku Jie&x2019;s ears.
When the young paparazzo and Xiao K saw the news, they could not contain their anger either.
&x201C;This group of people really needs to know who my sister&x2019;s husband really is. Once they discover his identity, I doubt they would be able to continue spreading rumors without thinking it over! These people are only interested in spreading rumors all day long!&x201D;
&x201C;Run a check and find out the identity of these people. Bring me the person behind this matter.&x201D; Ku Jie exploded immediately. The young paparazzo quickly downloaded the IDs of all the bloggers and those who had started the rumors before passing the information to Xiao K.
&x201C;Got it, Brother Ku Jie!&x201D;
&x201C;Intercept all the news and if any entertainment accounts dare to post anything about this matter, block them from the network immediately!&x201D;
&x201C;Alright, Brother Ku Jie!&x201D;
The young paparazzo was also very angry and frustrated about this matter. Who the heck started this rumor about Jiang Yuning?
Therefore, the young paparazzo did not only intercept all the rumors about Jiang Yuning, but he also contacted Xue Li and they started discussing about the ways through which they could intercept this matter with the help of Jin Mingchen&x2019;s fans.
X Society was busy the entire afternoon dealing with this matter. When Jiang Yuning finally heard of what happened, it was already eleven o&x2019;clock at night.
Vera was talking to Jiang Yuning over the phone at this time. &x201C;Yuning, do you know how lucky you are to have Ku Jie as your elder brother? As soon as these materials about you were released on the internet, he immediately intercepted them.&x201D;
&x201C;What exactly happened?&x201D;
Vera helplessly explained the entire situation to Jiang Yuning from start to end.
&x201C;So, someone decided to spread this disgusting rumor about you acting indecently with another man when you were filming the variety show. I have already reported this matter to Director Shen and he has asked our lawyer to issue a letter to the media companies directly involved in this matter. Your brother has also completely intercepted and stopped all of those rumors from spreading on the internet. Do you have any idea on who could be behind this matter this time?&x201D;
&x201C;Jin Mingchen came down with a high fever during the shoot. That was why I had brought him to the river banks to look for a willow tree, so we can use its bark to make tea in order to bring his temperature down. However, Xu Beishen ran into us when we were on our way,&x201D; Jiang Yuning briefly explained the situation to Vera.
&x201C;Were there anyone else at the scene at that time?&x201D;
&x201C;Are you kidding me? The cameraman and production crew were with us all the way&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then.&x201D; Vera understood the meaning behind Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words. &x201C;I will make sure that your brother and I find out who the person behind this matter is. We can then discuss how we are going to deal with that person tomorrow.&x201D;
&x201C;Call me as soon as you find out who is behind this matter. I will take care of it myself.&x201D;
In fact, there was no longer any need to find out who was behind this matter.
Vera heard Jiang Yuning&x2019;s indifferent response over the phone and she immediately knew that Jiang Yuning was fuming with rage. Jiang Yuning had always been a patient person who would greet everyone with a smile on her face. It was quite an achievement to be able to make her so angry.
&x201C;I got it. You can be rest assured that you will be the first person I give the information to.&x201D;
After putting down the phone, Jiang Yuning was in a daze as she sat on her bed.
She had already known that Xu Beishen would not let her off so easily. However, she had underestimated how despicable Xu Beishen could be, and that was why she had let her guard down.
At the same time, Lu Jingzhi also received a phone call from Ku Jie. &x201C;That Xu Beishen is already bullying my sister right now. Don&x2019;t you care about Yuning at all? Even though Yuning has said that you do not need to intervene in this matter, you do know that all this has happened because of you, right? How could you call yourself her husband if you are not taking any actions to protect her?&x201D;
After that, Ku Jie briefed Lu Jingzhi on everything that had happened.
Ten minutes later, Lu Jingzhi walked out of the bathroom dressed in his casual clothing. He walked towards the bed and carried Jiang Yuning who was dressed in his pyjamas up in his arms before he walked out of the bedroom.
&x201C;Second brother, where are we going?&x201D; Jiang Yuning exclaimed in surprise.
&x201C;I made an appointment with Xu Liangzhou and his sister. We are going to have a chat right now.&x201D;
After that, Lu Jingzhi placed Jiang Yuning in the passenger seat next to him as he would be driving personally.
&x201C;But I am wearing my pyjamas right now&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Do not worry about it. I will be hugging you the whole night,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied coldly.
Jiang Yuning was shocked and at that moment, she instantly understood that second brother must have already known that Xu Beishen was the one who had started the rumors about her acting indecently with Jin Mingchen. Lu Jingzhi gave her the feeling that he was about to kill anyone who spoke ill of her.
Jiang Yuning suddenly felt a little sympathetic towards Xu Beishen at this time. This was because Jiang Yuning would usually keep everything to herself even if someone bullied or offended her, as she knew that once Lu Jingzhi took control and set out to resolve the matter for her, that would be the end of the other party. The butler who used to work for the Jiang family had also faced Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s wrath directly, and in a blink of an eye, his house was flattened down to the ground.
Xu Beishen was really courageous indeed. If she had created some other rumors about Jiang Yuning, it would definitely not have been as bad as starting a rumor that Jiang Yuning was having a sexual relationship with another man while filming for the variety show.
Which man would be able to tolerate that kind of rumor about his own wife?
Therefore, Jiang Yuning was silent throughout the entire journey as she did not dare to further provoke Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s anger. Fortunately for her, the pyjamas that she was wearing tonight was rather casual and it would not be too obvious that she was, in fact, wearing her pyjamas.
After a twenty-minute drive, both of them arrived at the back door of Hilton Hotel. As soon as the hotel manager saw Lu Jingzhi walking in through the back door with Jiang Yuning in his arms, he quickly brought them up to the presidential suite that was reserved for VIPs only. The hotel manager and the staff were already familiar with Lu Jingzhi and his group of friends and therefore, they can be trusted to keep things to themselves.
After entering the presidential suite, Lu Jingzhi sat down on the sofa before he hugged Jiang Yuning and placed his suit jacket around her.
This was the first time Jiang Yuning had ever seen Lu Jingzhi so angry. There was a very cold and majestic expression on his face, with a hint of fatal danger arising from his body. Anyone who made eye contact with Lu Jingzhi at this time would probably die a very horrible death.
Ten minutes later, the door of the presidential suite was finally opened by someone else.
However, at this time, the people who entered the presidential suite were not only Xu Liangzhou and Xu Beishen, but also Wen Luo and Jian Shaoqi.
The four of them were initially talking and laughing with one another, but turned silent as soon as they walked into the room because they saw Lu Jingzhi sitting on the sofa with a fierce and tense expression on his face. None of them dared to take a step forward after closing the door.
&x201C;Xu Beishen.&x201D; Lu Jingzhi called her name out directly in an extremely cold and monotonous tone. He glared at her as he continued speaking. &x201C;Are you really tired of living already?&x201D;
The buttons of Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s shirt was open and he was hugging Jiang Yuning in his arms. However, the expression on his face and the tone of his voice was sufficient to make all of them tremble in fear.
&x201C;Jingzhi&x2026;&x201D; Xu Liangzhou said as he dragged Xu Beishen behind him. &x201C;Is there any misunderstanding?&x201D;
&x201C;If it was not on account of my friendship with your brother, you would not live to see the sun tomorrow. Do not regard my kindness or leniency as me being directly kind towards you. I am warning you for the last time right now. Stop provoking me or my woman. Otherwise, I will personally send you to hell!&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi was still staring at Xu Beishen with a cold expression on his face.
No one had ever seen Lu Jingzhi acting this way.
