Edison Chen's ex exposes him in book: It was sex every time
A computer technician was jailed for eight and a half months today for stealing photos of a Hong Kong pop star having sex with starlets that would be seen by millions of people via the internet. Sze Ho-chun, 24, downloaded explicit images from the laptop computer of the singer-actor Edison Chen that showed Chen engaging in sex acts with a number of women when he took his laptop in for repairs. The pictures, unlocked from encrypted files inside the laptop, were given to colleagues on CDs by Sze and ended up being uploaded onto the internet and seen by millions of people in China and around the world in early The pictures showed stars, including Chinese singer Gillian Chung and actress Cecilia Cheung, naked with Chen, creating a scandal that tarnished the squeaky-clean image of Hong Kong's Canto-pop stars. Chen, 28, was forced to issue a public apology, flee Hong Kong for Canada and announce his temporary retirement from show business as a result of the scandal. Sze was convicted at an earlier hearing at Hong Kong's Kowloon City Court of three counts of obtaining access to a computer with dishonest intent. He was sentenced in Hong Kong to eight and a half months in prison on each charge with the jail terms to run concurrently. His lawyer said he would appeal against the sentence.
Tech jailed for stealing sex-with-starlet photos
However, she did not give up and bravely faced it head-on. Clenching her teeth, she climbed back up slowly but surely. After getting married, the year-old Gillian deliberately cut down her workload to spend more time with her husband in hopes that her husband can feel her love. Still, she said she is far from being a competent wife. Not only is her husband great with cleaning, but also he is patient with kids.
Twins singer Gillian Chung has revealed that she, like actress Cecilia Cheung, bumped into an apologetic Edison Chen on a plane after the rapper's sleazy pictures of the women were stolen and circulated online. Unlike Cheung - who made peace with Chen on a flight from Taipei to Hong Kong on Mother's Day in - Chung did not know how to face her former boyfriend and asked to change seats so she would not have to sit behind him, the singer was quoted as saying. According to Sing Tao Daily and Nownews website, which cited Chung's interview with a magazine that was released on Sunday, Chen noticed her on the flight out of Hong Kong but did not disturb her. Instead, he wrote his former girlfriend a long apology letter on the spot, and had someone pass it to her later. Chung was moved by Chen's sincerity, she was quoted as saying.
Many local newspapers headlined the story consecutively during the first fortnight of February , relegating coverage of the Chinese winter storms to secondary prominence during Chinese New Year. In a crackdown which itself became a controversial item, the Hong Kong police enlisted the assistance of Interpol to stem the spread of the photographs. The police crackdown raised questions over violations of the privacy and free speech rights of Internet users. Chen admitted being the author and copyright owner of most of the photographs, and stated that the private photographs had been stolen and published illegally without his consent. He made a public apology, especially to the women involved, and also announced that he would "step away indefinitely" from the Hong Kong entertainment industry.
