While the netizens were passionately arguing, Ruan Tian was just feeling confused. She really couldn’t understand why Liu Yilee was always targeting her like this. Was it all because she asked her for an autograph that one time?
Wasn’t she way too stingy!
Jiang Lili repeatedly confirmed with her, “You’re sure you haven’t offended that woman before?”
Ruan Tian shook her head back and forth like a rattle drum, “No way, where would I ever even have the chance to meet her?”
Unfortunately, Jiang Lili had never actually had a real celebrity artist working under her before, so she didn’t understand that it was just the regular routine in the entertainment industry for whoever was popular to get targetted by smear jobs for no reason at all.
Thus, in her confusion, she even came up with a ridiculous theory: “Could it be that Liu Yilee likes Shen Shu? Perhaps she’s jealous of you, his ex-wife?”
Ruan Tian let out a long sigh and replied, “It’s not impossible.”
Shen Shu, the dog man, was still probably considered to be very attractive to most people. He was rich and powerful, and his company had so many affiliates under its umbrella that he could be said to own nearly half of the entertainment industry, so it wouldn’t be too surprising for a few female stars to have their eyes on him.
Jiang Lili gritted her teeth and said, “She really made a bold move this time.” She sighed, “But even though we clearly know she did it, there’s no way for us to prove it.”
“She obviously just wants to drag your name down and ruin your popularity among the passers-by, I really want to get back at her!”
Ruan Tian nodded along, “En, you’re completely right!” Then she muttered, “I really don’t know what our company’s public relations department even does. You notice that every time I’m being smeared, they suddenly all play dead? I’ve begun to seriously suspect that it’s all just Qin Yu taking revenge on me.”
Jiang Lili thought about it seriously for a moment before saying: “Well, it seems that the public relations department has helped us at least one time.”
Ruan Tian, who had already completely forgotten about this incident, asked blankly: “Have they really?”
Jiang Lili, being her agent, remembered this event much more clearly than Ruan Tian did. She said with certainty: “They did. Back then the public relations department sent out lawyer letters to anyone who dared to uploaded those photographs, and even now they’re still in the process of taking those people to court.”
Ruan Tian fell into a daze as she tried to recall.
As she remembered, that was also the time when Qin Yu had appeared to specifically warn her that the company did not allow artists to fall in love, and that she needed to mind her image. So she supposed they had indeed helped her once.
Meanwhile, while Jiang Lili was still hesitating over whether to set aside her face and go to the public relations department for help, Liu Yilee’s name suddenly exploded up the hot search.
Her name was near the top of the list, with a crimson ‘Fire’ icon next to it.
A certain account with the obvious throwaway username @ahejnskldhyeuiw had posted a series of photographs.
And, although the moderators were quick to pull everything down, the images were still saved by those netizens with especially quick eyes and hands.
Thanks to that, these photos quickly spread all across the internet.
Basically, these photos exposed Liu Yilee’s dark side. In the circle, her ‘love’ had a price tag, and she would willingly do all kinds of things, go to all kinds of shady backroom dinners, and sit on anyone’s lap, all for the sake of popularity.
This one tossed stone caused a thousand waves of waves, and facts showed that the netizen’s interest in this kind of juicy gossip far outstripped their interest in whether a role had been stolen or earned legitimately.
After this event, Liu Yilee shut herself up at home and didn’t dare to go out. She was disheveled and looked haggard, and she seemed to have lost her last bit of reason, screeching: “How dare he do this to me? How dare he really do this!?”
Her agent tried to console her but it was to no avail.
Huai Mo, this young master of the Huai family who hardly ever showed his face, wasn’t someone just anyone could afford to provoke.
After all, Huai Mo didn’t have something like a normal person’s three views, nor did he have any moral compass.
He would never even try to think for someone else’s sake, and in his dictionary, there was no such word as ‘compassion’.
The fact that he had let her off with only a warning the first time was already considered a great kindness.
“What am I supposed to do now? You tell me, how are you going to fix this?!”
Despite being screamed at, Liu Yilee’s agent didn’t dare to raise his voice in response. He just said meekly, “The company plans to let you avoid the limelight for a while first.”
What ‘avoid the limelight’? Putting it bluntly, they planned to bury her!
Of course, Liu Yilee wasn’t a person who would easily concede just like that. She quickly retorted, “What ‘avoid the limelight’? As long as I don’t admit that the person in the photos is me, what can they do? I’ll never admit it! I’ll sue anyone who dares to slander me!”
However, Liu Yilee wasn’t the only artist under this agent, so there was no way he would risk his career and offend the boss by helping her carry out this sort of scheme.
He just said calmly, “You just take a good rest at home for now. When the heat from this incident dies down a bit and everything passes, it will all be fine.”
Of course, they both knew that this matter would never pass.
Now, whenever Liu Yilee dared to appear in public, the first thing people would think of would be this scandal and these photos.
Her acting career had basically been ended right here.
Liu Yilee still didn’t want to give up. She got up and, with trembling hands, she picked up her phone. She called the boss of the film company that she knew before, but the one who picked up was a woman who said, “I’m his wife.”
Liu Yilee was so scared by this that she threw the phone down immediately.
