Either Thursday or Friday, Edison Chen is expected to return to Hong Kong for the first time since his pictures leaked. Edison is said to be coming back to help police catch the “crazy man” releasing the photos. Gillian Chung also returned to work and ignored questions from the press. Kira, the man or men responsible for leaking the photos, has remained silent for the past couple of days. His inactivity and the fact that Gillian was smiling at her press conference has led people to believe EEG, Gillian’s record company, or someone else has paid him off. Cecilia and Nicholas have split as a result of the photos which showed Cecilia still sleeping around with Edison while they were together.
Of course, all of what has happened has fostered a few conspiracy theories. Some of which are posted under the cut.
Fun fact: In Gillian’s speech she said she was naive. On her nightstand is a bottle of KY Jelly.
Jackie Chan’s involvement
The pictures that were released were stills taken from video. These were used as bargaining chips for a pay off. The rumor is in the video Edison asks Gillian who’s better in bed. Him, Jackie Chan or Albert, the owner of EEG. Not to tarnish the reputation of one of the most internationally known actors in Hong Kong with the Olympics looming, they decide to pay Kira off.
HK$10 million payout
More than one person was releasing the photos. They were paid 10 million HKD or 1.3 million USD to stop releasing.
Gillian Chung used as bait
Gillian Chung’s public appearance was used to lure Kira out of hiding which it never did.
Kira in hiding
Kira is waiting for Edison to return to Hong Kong to release more pictures to embarrass him.
