There have long been rumours about 31-year-old Chinese actress and model Lynn Xiong putting pressure on her seemingly non-committal beau, Hong Kong singer-actor Aaron Kwok, 46, to get hitched.
The most recent report, however, takes the cake.
According to Sina Entertainment, a "good friend" of Xiong had leaked out that she is "two months pregnant" with Kwok's baby, but that he "has demanded her to abort it".
Reportedly furious at the rumour-mongering, Xiong posted an angry post on her Sina Weibo microblog, calling the news "demonising words".
The witty star added: "When I find out who started this, I shall get Fahai (the evil monk in Tale of The White Snake) to deal with him."
