Just as the controversy surrounding badminton champion Lin Dan’s extra-marital affair begins to subside, model-actress Zhao Yaqi decided to appear in front of the media to talk about it.

As reported on Mingpao, the former beauty queen, who held a press conference recently, offered an apology to those who are hurt by her affair with Lin, saying, “I never thought that those hasty decisions that I made would hurt so many people. The past week was the most painful experience of my life.”

Zhao stated that while she initially wanted to keep quiet about the issue, she decided to speak out to quell further damage.
She also denied that she was aiming for infamy or even financial gains from her affair with Lin Dan, saying that all the rumours of him buying her luxury cars are not true.
“Nobody would stir up such a drama to get famous. I would never be able to plan such a thing,” she said.
