MR TAN, a 52-year-old taxi driver, has accused MediaCorp artiste Quan Yifeng of wrecking his taxi and even kicking him in the groin.

But Quan Yifeng has come back with allegations of her own that he slammed his car door on her, and swore at her.

On Saturday, Lianhe Wanbao reported that a member of the public witnessed the taxi driver arguing with Quan Yifeng, who was accompanied by her daughter an unidentified man who looked to be in his 30s, around East Coast.

The taxi driver told Lianhe Wanbao that he picked up a male passenger on Saturday at 8.45am, who then asked him to go to Hua Xin Condominium to pick up more passengers, then head to Changi airport.

The two other passengers turned out to be Quan Yifeng and her 11-year-old daughter, who were heading to Mauritius where Yifeng was filming.  

When he refused to help her with her luggage, the 36-year-old artiste lost her temper and continued to make things difficult for him as they drove towards the airport, including swearing at him in hokkien, shoving and hitting him.

After alighting, he said that she kicked his groin and a car door, then locked herself in the taxi for 15 minutes to thrash it.

The police has classified the case as theft because she left in another cab with his car keys, according to Lianhe Wanbao.

In a call from Mauritius, the MediaCorp artiste told Wanbao that she did not take his keys, nor thrash his taxi. She also said she was the one who called the police after their altercation, but had to leave to catch her flight.

She said she shoved him and kicked his car door because he blocked her as she was trying to get her luggage.

Quan Yifeng is now seeking legal advice, Wanbao reported.
