Local singer JJ Lin, 33, may have openly expressed his admiration for S.H.E member Hebe Tien, but rumour has it that he is secretly dating Taiwanese actress Jean Kao, who is two years his senior.
According to Taiwanese media, the two met during the opening of JJ’s fashion label’s Taipei flagship store in March. It is also reported that Jean recently flew to Hangzhou, China, to show her support at the singer’s Time Line concert.
Her company, however, clarified that the actress attended the show as she happened to be in Hangzhou for work and that the two are just “good friends who get along well”.
Afterwards, a netizen, who claimed to be a crew member, posted a photo of the rumoured couple sitting next to each other at the celebratory party after the concert.
Jean’s recent microblog posts – “I feel comforted listening to your voice” and “Sometimes the toughest part is not letting go, but learning how to begin” – further fuelled rumours about their relationship.
Apart from her suggestive comments, Jean has also been showing off products from JJ’s store in her posts. “She has always been supportive of other celebrities’ self-created labels. That’s why she publicly exhibits items from his shop,” a representative from her company said.
Meanwhile, JJ has been accused of being a two-timer, after he was photographed having dinner with his good friend, Da Mouth member Harry Zhang and a “sexy lady with fit thighs”. To avoid being followed by the paparazzi, the unnamed woman allegedly took a taxi to JJ’s apartment after the gathering.
Although JJ’s manager declined to comment on reports about the artiste’s personal life, he insisted that JJ and Jean are “just good friends”.
