Cecilia to sue over nude painting

1 Jan - Popular Hong Kong star, Cecilia Cheung, is angered by a controversial art expo staged in Nanjing, China, by the infamous "naked headmaster"model, Yang Linchuan, which featured a nude painting of the 31-year-old star, according to May Daily.

One of Yang's many artworks featured an oil painting of Cheung posing provocatively and revealing her privates, based on a photograph by her ex-lover Edison Chen that was previously leaked and circulated on the internet.

The earlier scandal took place in 2008, which shocked the world for the photos were explicit, involving Cheung and Chen, as well as Chen's other lovers, actress-singer Gillian Chung and singer-model Bobo Chan.

Due to this incident, Cheung and her management will consider taking legal action against Yang as it will ruin the actress-singer's reputation as a professional.

Other nude portraits in the show appear to be of actresses Cecilia, Liu Xiaoqing, and Sun Feifei.

Yang replied to Cheung's outrage by claiming that it is unreasonable, for if Cheung could reveal her nude photos with Chen on the internet, then there is nothing wrong with his nude painting of her.

"This is my personal interpretation of their sex scandal," said Yang.
