Timi Hsiao Scandal
News from “Today’s News”: Taiwanese model Timi Hsiao (also known as Xiao Yiting 萧依婷, Xiao Yutong 萧羽桐), who ever guest-starred in Jay Chou’s MV Hair White as Snow, was caught on the spot by the police when she was engaged in drug trade, and admitted to the police that she smokes marijuana and takes ketamine.
According to the report, Hsiao also made a voluntary confession to the police that since she wasn’t able to face the unbearable life stress, she turned to prostitution with the help of Ling Weiwei (凌葳葳) setting up the meetings with clients. The first time they were paid with 60,000 yuan, and she got 30,000 yuan. And since then, she’s been involved in the sex trade for more than 10 times. But there was one time that left a horrible memory on her. Under Ling Weiwei’s arrangement, she met a client in Shanghai alone, where she was asked to take a kind of white powder. After that, she found herself unable to control herself, and at last had her family helped take her back to Taiwan.
In the beginning, Ling Weiwei denied the case and emphasized that she didn’t know Tsiao. But when the police found out something like guest book with a list of names, she confessed that she had ever arranged meetings for the clients but she wasn’t involved in the prostitution ring trafficking sex. However, she added, if the girls wanted to have dinner or sex with the clients, she couldn’t control this. And more, she didn’t set up the meetings for Hsiao with the clients. She was only working with Hsiao’s agent.
According to news disclosed by the insiders, Ling Weiwei operated the sextrade by using the code word “take notice”, to hook celebrities and entertainers up with businessmen and politician.
