The pictures, taken by a Los Angeles-based paparazzi agency, showed Zhang on the Caribbean island of St Barts with her fiance, Israeli investor Vivi Nevo, last Friday.

Zhang was photographed in a red bikini reading a book, doing a bridge and even a splits on the sand.

She took off her red bikini top and rolled down her bottom as she sun bathed and the photographs captured her lying topless beside her fiance.

Fiance Vivi Nevo was also caught on camera grabbing her bottom and enthusiastically kissing the whole length of her back.

Lianhe Wanbao reported that Chinese Internet forums have been flooded with comments including critiques of her figure, and allegations that "she has forgotten she is Chinese".

Some commented that her "yoga" poses were comical.
