Wedding details for Mandopop superstar Jay Chou and rumoured girlfriend Hannah Quinlivan have been garnering wide media attention ever since the singer promised to get married by next January.
Recently, Jay was said to have gone for a wedding photoshoot in Shanghai, and offered the studio a lump sum of RMB$2 million (approximately S$410,000) to promote the photos.
Employees of the studio had previously claimed that the 35-year-old approached them first and offered them the money but these rumours have been refuted by his manager. His record label, JVR Music, will not hesitate to take legal actions if necessary, they said.
“Our company did not, and will not, offer any money to wedding photo studios to promote Jay Chou’s wedding. We will take legal actions against the false statements in news reports by employees of the studio,” said JVR Music in an official statement released to the media.
It is believed that Jay intends to hold his wedding by the sea but he will focus on album preparations first as it “cannot drag on further”. Although he also added that the wedding “cannot drag on further” as well, Hannah revealed that he has yet to propose.
