KUALA LUMPUR - There seems to be no end to the problems faced by Malaysian actress-singer Lee Sinje, who was spotted seeking medical treatment at a private hospital here.
Lee, who is believed to be suffering from gastric pains, looked tired and sick while sitting on a sofa with a cannula on her right arm on Wednesday, major Chinese dailies reported.
It was the first time that the 38-year-old Lee was spotted in public after news of her husband, Hong Kong film director Oxide Pang Chun, openly kissing a model was reported last week.
Pang, who was also at the hospital, was seen sitting at the corner of a sofa checking his phone, Guang Ming Daily reported.
Pang had arrived in Malaysia on Monday in a bid to seek forgiveness from his wife after pictures of him on a movie date with 26-year-old model Liddy Li in Hong Kong were splashed on the pages of the island's tabloids and Internet.
The pictures showed the duo sharing an intimate kiss, holding hands and hugging each other.
Lee married Pang at the exclusive Pangkor Laut Resort in Perak in 2010 after dating him for seven years.
Since then, she has spent most of her time in Malaysia to look after Pang's daughter from his previous marriage.
Pang had expressed remorse by issuing a second note on his official Weibo but netizens felt he was not sincere in his apology.
They felt that Pang only apologised after the netizens questioned his sincerity as he did not apologise over the incident on his joint statement with Lee.
Hong Kong artiste Sylvia Chang Ai Jia, who is Lee's mentor, was equally sad upon learning of what Lee had to go through, Sin Chew Daily reported.
Sources said Chang had called Lee to console her.
Li has not appeared in public since the news broke. According to media reports, the starlet is unwilling to let go of the relationship due to the financial help she had received from Pang during the course of their affair.
The pair had reportedly been living together for six months before their relationship was exposed.
