&x201C;Hello everyone. This is the late-night entertainment broadcast channel. We have just received news from one of the media that the film emperor Xiao Chennan&x2019;s brother was involved in a fight a few years back. Five years ago, a man and woman were both seriously injured after a fight in front of a KTV. Xiao Chennan had then assisted his brother and helped him escape abroad so that he would not have to pay for the consequences of his action.&x201D;
&x201C;After receiving this news, we sent some reporters over to the victim&x2019;s house immediately. We managed to secure an interview with the victims and have successfully verified the authenticity of this news. The victims claimed that their family has not received any compensation nor apology from Xiao Chennan or his younger brother after the incident. Their lives were completely ruined after the incident and they have been so helpless and miserable ever since then.&x201D;
&x201C;What exactly is the true story behind this incident? One of our reporters has also contacted the entertainment company which Xiao Chennan is currently under, but he has already returned to T City for the filming of
The entertainment industry was in an uproar and there was a huge commotion as soon as this news broke out.
This was because Xiao Chennan&x2019;s public declaration of his relationship was completely insignificant in comparison to this scandal.
[I do not believe the news at all! Brother Nan has always been a righteous person with a sense of justice. It is impossible for him to do something like that.]
[I do not believe it either. Even though I am still mad at Brother Nan for his bad taste in women, I know that he is definitely not a bad person!]
[Unless Brother Nan confesses to the crime, then I will never believe that he would harm anyone at all!]
[Xiao Chennan&x2019;s fans are really quite pitiful. First, they had to deal with their idol&x2019;s relationship with another woman. After that, their idol is once again pulled into another scandal. Moreover, the scandal was exposed directly on entertainment television this time. I am afraid that it is almost impossible for the news to be fake this time.]
[The victims have already stepped forward to confirm the authenticity of this matter. What else is there to think about?]
[Xiao Chennan&x2019;s personality had always been a little frightening. This news is a bit scary&x2026;]
[Don&x2019;t make any assumptions yet&x2026;otherwise, you might get hit in the face again.]
[Any male artiste who has any form of relationship or connection with Jiang Yuning never ends up in a good spot.]
[You should be careful when making any comments or judgment. Otherwise, you might really regret the words you speak when the truth is finally revealed.]
[If we find out that the matter is indeed true, then shouldn&x2019;t Xiao Chennan be banned and blacklisted from the entertainment industry?]
[How did he become the film emperor with such a bad personality and character? Even the deities will not be able to save him.]
[I feel so disgusted right now. If I was one of Xiao Chennan&x2019;s fans, I would definitely turn against him and stop supporting him immediately!]
It was already three o&x2019;clock in the middle of the night and the waves just kept crashing one after the other. Xiao Chennan&x2019;s agency had to continue working overtime even though they had not even gotten off work yet. The upper management called for an emergency meeting and the vice chairman of the company had also requested for a video conference call with Xiao Chennan and the team in order to get a thorough understanding of the entire matter. The agency was not able to come up with any public relations strategy because they had not anticipated this at all.
Qing Yan was also feeling very anxious at this time.
&x201C;Brother Nan, is this matter true or not? The agency is going crazy on the other end. They are waiting to have a video conference call with you now&x2026;&x201D;
Xiao Chennan was very gloomy and he sneered as soon as he saw the news that was on the entertainment television. &x201C;They actually have the guts to come out and create trouble.&x201D;
Xiao Chennan headed to his room directly before he turned on his laptop and connected it to the internet. After that, he accepted the video conference call with the upper management of his agency.
&x201C;Chennan, tell me honestly. Is the news that was broadcasted on the entertainment television yesterday true?&x201D; the vice chairman asked as he looked at Xiao Chennan through the video conference call. &x201C;You must understand that this matter plays an important role in determining your own future! If the media can confirm that the victims&x2019; story is true, your future and career will be completely ruined!&x201D;
&x201C;Yes&x2026;and no,&x201D; Xiao Chennan replied in a deep voice.
&x201C;What kind of answer is that?&x201D; the vice chairman asked as he pushed his glasses higher up against his nose bridge. He was very unhappy with Xiao Chennan&x2019;s reply. &x201C;If this matter is indeed true, then we can find a way to smooth it out. However, you should know very well that this matter will not only affect your career, but it will also leave a huge impact on the agency. So&x2026;&x201D;
After that, the vice chairman called Xiao Chennan on his cell phone. Although he did not make himself clear over the video conference call, he made himself very clear over the phone call.
However, the vice chairman got very frustrated and annoyed because Xiao Chennan was very nonchalant about the entire situation.
Qing Yan understood Xiao Chennan&x2019;s temper very well. Therefore, he waited anxiously behind Xiao Chennan as he spoke to the vice chairman and he rushed up to him as soon as he hung up the phone.
&x201C;Brother Nan, how is it? What did the vice chairman say to you?&x201D;
&x201C;He told me that he would help me resolve this matter, on the condition that I break up with Vera immediately and be&x2026;. together with him instead,&x201D; Xiao Chennan replied as he sneered.
&x201C;What?&x201D; Qing Yan yelled in shock. &x201C;Isn&x2019;t he taking advantage of the situation right now? That old man is really disgusting! How can a vice chairman act like this?&x201D;
In fact, Qing Yan already knew that the company would be more than willing to do anything that they could to subdue Xiao Chennan. However, since Xiao Chennan had worked so hard to achieve all that he had based on his own ability, and since he had already made it as the film emperor, the agency did not dare to do anything to him at all.
Since Xiao Chennan was already in trouble right now, then it was only natural that the agency would do all that they could to try and gain some control over Xiao Chennan.
&x201C;Brother Nan, what should we do now then? In other words, the vice chairman is saying that if you do not comply with his terms, then the agency will not help you at all?&x201D;
&x201C;Also, who is the mastermind behind this matter?&x201D;
The flying award ceremony was coming soon and the competition for the best actor of the year was extremely fierce this year.
Xiao Chennan assumed that the other party could only be an artiste who really wanted the award for himself and that was the only reason why he would be willing to make such a big move to launch an attack on Xiao Chennan.
&x201C;Qing Yan, do you trust me?&x201D;
&x201C;What are you saying? Of course, I trust you! I have already been your assistant for such a long time. I know what kind of person you are.&x201D;
Qing Yan did not believe anything that was reported in the news at all.
The expression on Xiao Chennan&x2019;s face softened and he relaxed a little after listening to Qing Yan&x2019;s reply. At least there were still people who trusted him.
&x201C;So, Brother Nan&x2026;please tell me what exactly is going on here&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Five years ago, my younger brother had just started university and he volunteered to help out during one of the blood donations drives organized by the university. That night, a drunk couple suddenly came and caused a scene at the blood donation drive. They started attacking one of the sanitization workers at the intersection of the road and my younger brother stepped up to defend him, but he was attacked as well. My brother did not hold back and he fought back against the couple and ended up causing them some serious injuries. However, my brother was not unharmed. He suffered intracranial haemorrhage and he did not survive,&x201D; Xiao Chennan explained with a straight expression on his face. &x201C;My father subsequently fell ill and passed away because he could not accept my brother&x2019;s death.&x201D;
&x201C;What about that family? Why did they have the courage to come out and say all these after everything that happened?&x201D;
&x201C;The court convicted the couple of manslaughter and one of them was sentenced to two years in prison, while the other was given a heavier sentence of three years&x2026;&x201D;
&x201C;Two lives were sacrificed because of their actions! How could the sentence be so light?&x201D; Qing Yan could not hold back his anger and he clenched his fists tightly together after listening to Xiao Chennan&x2019;s story. &x201C;And what is wrong with the media? How could they trust those rumors? Don&x2019;t they know that your brother&x2026;has already passed away?&x201D;
&x201C;After my brother was seriously injured, we sent him abroad to seek medical treatment. The couple believed that my brother went abroad only because he was trying to evade responsibility&x2026;they also believe that the only reason why they were convicted of manslaughter was simply because I pulled some strings to get them convicted. They refuse to believe that my brother has already passed away and they are convinced that he is still alive and hiding abroad to avoid taking responsibility for his actions. I only know about this because they approached my mother and harassed her a couple of times. My mother only told me about this later. I would never have expected anyone to make use of this accident to deal with me.&x201D;
Qing Yan felt very distressed after listening to Xiao Chennan&x2019;s story. &x201C;Brother Nan, you don&x2019;t have to worry. All we have to do now is to step up and clarify this matter to the public.&x201D;
&x201C;Qing Yan, I would like to take this opportunity to leave my current agency and set up my own,&x201D; Xiao Chennan suddenly said as he looked at Qing Yan with a serious expression on his face. &x201C;And you might need to make a trip to the police station for me within the next few days to get some evidence that I might need.&x201D;
&x201C;No worries, Brother Nan. You can trust me to run those errands for you. Just leave it to me. Brother Nan, if the vice chairman calls you again, don&x2019;t forget to record the conversation this time.&x201D;
