Despite Chinese actress Fan Bingbing and actor Li Chen repeated denials of their relationship since the start of the year, the pair were seen wearing customised necklaces with each other’s initials.
Bingbing was wearing a pendant with a ‘C’ while Li Chen was wearing one with an ‘F’, which are thought to symbolise the other party’s name. They were also wearing the same brand of shades, causing netizens to be suspicious of their relationship.
Moreover, the rumoured couple recently interacted intimately online after Li Chen posted a funny photo on Weibo with the caption, “The king has sent me to patrol the mountains” and Bingbing re-posted his photo on her account.
Li Chen then replied to Bingbing by writing, “I should have written ‘the goddess (referring to Bingbing) has sent me to patrol the mountains’” seemingly openly showing his affection for the actress.
Netizens also took the opportunity to give their blessings to the rumoured couple, some complimenting, “The both of you are so sweet! You have my blessings!” Others added teasingly, “It should be ‘my wife has sent me to patrol the mountains’!”
