In September last year, mainland Chinese director Wang Quanan was arrested for paying for prostitution services.
His wife, actress Kitty Zhang, announced that they would deal with the situation honestly. This led many to think that the couple had gotten over this rough patch in their marriage, reported entertainment website Popular Asians.
However, news recently broke that Kitty may be engaging in an extramarital affair herself.
On the evening of March 17, a celebrity-news mobile app called "Searching for Stars in the Country" revealed an intimate video of Kitty and a mysterious man entering the same apartment building late at night. The two were seen together for three consecutive days and were even spotted driving to a vacation spot to go skiing.
In the video, Kitty and the mysterious male can be seen behaving intimately, such as when they are holding hands on the street or feeding each other. When they are skiing, the unnamed man is constantly at Kitty's side, as if protecting her.
After the video was released, a media source reported that one of Kitty's representatives had confirmed the actress's identity in the video but insisted that Kitty and the man were just normal friends.
Nevertheless, NetEase Entertainment later contacted Kitty's studio, which stated that the company had not related any information to other media outlets. The studio added that at the moment, they were not prepared to answer any questions regarding the actress's relationship rumours.
Unlike mainland Chinese actors Michael Chen and Wen Zhang, whom netizens denounced for cheating on their partners, many netizens expressed that they could understand what Kitty was going through, seeing as she had to endure the infidelity of her husband six months prior.
