She disappeared from the public after May 2018 and The Guardian newspaper reported that the state-run Chinese newspaper Securities Daily stated Bingbing had been put “under control” after hiding her real salary from the government in a plot called “yin-yang contracts,” where she only revealed a portion of her movie star salary.
“As a public figure, I should have abided by laws and regulations, and been a role model in the industry and society,” she said in a bizarre apology after she was released from jail in October 2018.
“I shouldn’t have lost self-restraint or become lax in managing (my companies), which led to the violation of laws, in the name of economic interests,” Bingbing said in her carefully worded apology.
