Edison Chen was testifying against a man accused of accessing his laptop, which held the shots. The Chinese-Canadian actor and singer quit the entertainment business last year, after weeks of lurid headlines and pictures in Hong Kong erased his previously clean-cut image. The story became such an obsession that it crashed several servers and prompted the intervention of the territory's Catholic bishop, who urged people not to forward the photographs. On the mainland, some pages discussing the scandal received more than 25m hits.

I am a fan of Gillian Chung, and I remember feeling it was odd that she had to apologise and endure so many professional consequences for doing nothing wrong. I wanted to say something about it, but I was an year-old girl, a bit too obsessed with pop stars. So I kept silent. I look back and I am heartbroken that she had to be persecuted by an entire society that is shameless in its victim-blaming.
Shanghaiist is hyperventilating. Just when we thought the worst was over , a new set of pics have surfaced. After looking through the pictures, we had to take a while to recover from the massive nasal haemorrhage we suffered before we could calm down ourselves enough to put this story together oh how very self-sacrificial!
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.
