After receiving a surprise gift from an anonymous man at a charitable banquet, Chinese actress Zhou Xun has admitted the man was her new boyfriend Wang Shuo, heir of a real-estate conglomerate.
"I'm very happy that he spent so much to do charity," Zhou Xun told reporters on Tuesday. She was referring to a bid of 3.88 million yuan (US$568,264) at the 2009 Bazaar Charity Gala held one day ago in Beijing. During the auction, actor-singer Jaycee Chan, who said he represented his friend, a Mr. Wang, snapped up a valuable mini house model donated by his superstar father Jackie Chan, and then presented it to Zhou Xun onsite.
After revealing that the mysterious Mr. Wang was actually Wang Shuo, Zhou Xun confirmed her new relationship just three months after her much talked about break up with celebrated stylist Li Daqi.
Wang Shuo, reportedly four years younger than 32-year-old Zhou, is the son of Wang Zhicai, an influential Chinese-Australian real-estate tycoon based in Beijing. Wang Shuo met Zhou Xun through Jaycee Chan, according to Chinese media. Rumors suggest Zhou has already moved into Wang's luxury apartment in downtown Beijing.
Zhou Xun, one of the most sought-after actresses in China, has been unsuccessful in her love life. In June this year, she admitted that she had split with Li Daqi, her ex-boyfriend of five years, although she had once said that Daqi was the right man for her to marry. Before Daqi, Zhou courted actor Li Yapeng, who is now married to pop diva Faye Wong.
