Eddie Peng has recently dismissed rumours that he is gay.
As reported on DW News, rumours of Eddie’s sexuality sparked recently when the hashtag “Eddie Peng comes out” went viral on Chinese social media. It started after a Weibo user claimed that Eddie has had a relationship with Hillhouse Capital founder Zhang Lei in order to get himself into the entertainment industry.
The post had since been deleted. However, netizens continued to speculate about his sexuality, saying that there may be truth to it due to Eddie’s lack of romance rumours.
However, when asked about it recently, Eddie’s company slammed the rumours as pure fabrication.
“We have handed this matter to the lawyers,” his rep added.
