A BRIDE and groom in China’s Yunnan province were shocked when a dozen women appeared unannounced at their wedding reception holding a large red banner, reported Sin Chew Daily.
The banner read: “We are Chen’s ex-girlfriends and today, we will turn you into scrap.”
The women held it across the road in front of the house on Feb 6, blocking anyone who wanted to attend the “welcoming the bride” ceremony.
While many relatives thought that it was a harmless prank by friends, it was later revealed that the women were indeed the groom’s former lovers.
The groom, who was identified only by his surname Chen, admitted that he had had many girlfriends in the past and that he had caused them a lot of hurt.
He said he did not expect the matter to explode in such a way.
The stunt by Chen’s ex-girlfriends was a success as the bride and in-laws are not speaking to him until they get a satisfactory explanation.
Chen admitted that he does not know what to do to address the situation.
> Jacky Cheung’s fans are elated with news that the Hong Kong superstar is planning to hold a concert after having taken a break for a few years, reported Sin Chew Daily.
Cheung, 61, said during the filming of a music video for his new single When The Sun Rises that preparations had begun for the concert.
“It is in the works. It will most likely happen in the next half year.
“However, I will keep the name of the concert to myself for the time being. Hopefully everything will run smoothly,” said the ‘God of Songs’.
Cheung urged fans not to buy concert tickets from unverified websites to avoid being duped.
When The Sun Rises, written by Riley Lam and Eric Kwok, was originally performed by Malaysian singer Gin Lee and featured Cheung.
He released a solo version of the tune on Feb 10.
He is known as one of the Four Heavenly Kings of Hong Kong pop music and is one of the most successful artistes there.
