37-year-old Fan Bingbing mysteriously disappeared in early June: she ceased to appear in public and enter the social network. Fans were worried about her mysterious disappearance and wondered where, at one point, one of the highest paid actresses in the world according to Forbes.
It turned out that in this way the star was simply hiding from the Chinese authorities! The fact is that the actress for a long time evaded taxes, using a cunning scheme. Fan had double contracts: this means that in one document she indicated her real income, and in the other – a much smaller amount (the second document ended up going to tax).
Now the situation has cleared up: Fan has finally appeared, confirmed frauds with taxes, and even offered her sincere apologies.
As a public person, I had to abide by laws and rules and be a role model for others,
– Bingbin expressed her sincere regret.
Now the actress will have to repay all the debts – $ 86 million government fine and another 42 million fees. If Bingbin fails to pay the fine on time, her case will be brought to court.
By the way, Fan decided on such a scam because the Chinese government very strictly regulates the way of life of celebrities and imposes large taxes on them. Thus, the government wants to eradicate the “worship of money”, which many citizens are subject to, looking at celebrities.
