Men actress missing amid tax fraud allegations

The Chinese authorities have stated that Bingbing might be in trouble with the law since she has come last in the ranking of social responsibility among the celebrities. And in the weeks since, the mystery surrounding her disappearance from public view has only deepened amid speculation that she ran afoul of Chinese authorities.

Meanwhile, a watchdog site covering social media censorship in China notes that concerned supporters who wondered online what had happened to Fan have since seen their posts scrubbed.

THR reports that some of the theories spreading around social media are that Fan is "under the custody of Chinese authorites" and that "she has escaped to Los Angeles to seek asylum in the United States".

Fan, the highest-paid Chinese actress and a darling of worldwide red carpets who has expanded her career to Hollywood film roles, scored a shocking zero and was the last on a list of 100 celebrities. The 36-year-old actress has not been photographed in public since early May, when she posed on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival for a screening of Ash Is Purest White.

The report for the 2017-2018 China Film and Television Star Social Responsibility was prepared by Beijing Normal University as per an Independent report. "Fan has done so much good work in the past!" one user wrote on the Twitter-like Weibo platform. As one of China's biggest movie stars, she had featured in a couple of Hollywood superhero blockbusters and scores of local films, with many other projects in the pipeline.

After the TV host leaked the documents, Fan Bingbing's representatives fiercely denied the allegations and threatened legal action, calling the report slander.

The hurricane is expected to make landfall on Friday, with heavy rain and hurricane-force winds potentially lasting for days. More than a million people along the coastlines of North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia have been ordered to evacuate.

Many think Fan's disappearance from the public eye may be to do with her tax affairs. In June, five government agencies enforced a cap of film star pay, saying that on-screen performers' salaries should be capped at 40 per cent of the total production costs.

So-called "yin and yang" dual contract arrangements ― with one contract for income declared to tax authorities and another kept secret ― are reportedly used to evade taxes.

Concerns are mounting over Chinese actress Fan Bingbing, who has apparently not been seen in public "for months".

Last month, almost a dozen major Chinese film producers and video sites announced they also would boycott "unreasonable" pay for actors.

Chinese actress Fan Bingbing is set to co-star in the upcoming thriller 355 alongside Jessica Chastain, Penelope Cruz and Lupita Nyong'o, but that's assuming they're able to locate her.

Swisse Managing Director Oliver Horn said last September: "Fan Bingbing is an internationally recognised star who combines intelligence, artistic talent and unique beauty with a positive attitude to life".
