29 Mar – It seems that the rumoured disputes between "Ip Man" star Donnie Yen and "Once Upon a Time in China" star may be much more serious than they seem when reported last, with Taiwanese actress Shu Qi being the latest victim, according to Asia One.
The "A Beautiful Life" star was attacked by Zhao's fans online following her open support of Yen's professional attitude.
"He is very serious about every scene so that it is beautifully presented to the audiences," posted Shu Qi on March 20 on her Weibo.
"Even though he was shivering in the cold weather and suffering from cramps, he did his best to carry on shooting whenever he heard the word 'Actor!'"
She added, "He is a good big brother, good actor and good man."
Zhao supporters then responded by anonymously reposting her old nude photos on her page, saying they were for 're-visiting'.
The incident caused the 36-year-old actress to delete all her posts and followers on Weibo.
For those who are unaware, it was said that Yen and Zhao had disagreements and differences of opinions while working on their new film "Special Identity".
Sources stated that the disputes began when Zhao was replaced by Hong Kong actor Andy On due to his diva-like attitude. He refused to follow orders given by Yen, who is the producer, action director and lead actor in the film.
However, according to Zhao,it was Yen who was at fault as he changed the script frequently and without notice, as well as reducing his parts.
Yen has already threatened legal action against Zhao for defamation.
