Wang Yibo's camp slams AIDS diagnosis rumour

22 Feb - Wang Yibo's management, Yuehua Entertainment is threatening legal action against those who disseminate false information about the actor's health condition.

Recently, rumours went viral on mainland social media platforms that a male star born in 1995 has been diagnosed with AIDS and is now receiving treatment in Beijing. The rumour stated that the male star slept with two foreign models, who turned out to have AIDS.

While the rumour made no mention of the artiste's identity, somehow many speculated it to be "The Untamed" star.
