Jerry Yan forked out millions to help Lin Chiling's family business

TAIPEI : Singer Jerry Yan who was rumoured to be dating model-turned-actress Lin Chiling for four years, forked out millions of dollars to help his then-girlfriend ease her financial burden, Taiwan media reported.

Lin was reportedly saddled with debts after her brother's cosmetic business ran into financial difficulties.

The pair were romantically linked between 2002 and 2006 and during this period of time, Yan, who is known for being thrifty, and sometimes to the extent of stingy, generously forked out millions to help Lin.

It was reported that the former member of popular Taiwanese boyband F4 even bought her a luxury car for work.

The couple called it quits after Lin's career took off. Their gruelling schedules often clashed and the pair eventually drifted apart.

Lin's mother, Madam Wu, however, has refuted claims, saying, "What has Jerry Yan got to do with our family and why is there a monetary link between him and us?" The family business is in good shape, she added.

In support of her brother's business, Lin, 35, was reported to have forked out NT50 million (S$2.5 million) and even became the spokesperson for the cosmetic brand. Despite her and Yan's efforts, the business failed to pick up and the company's distribution rights will be terminated this June.

Lin did not comment on reports of Yan's involvement with her family's financial matters.

The actress has been linked with Taiwanese businessman Qiu Shi Kai and the couple are rumoured to be tying the knot soon.

While Madam Wu did not quash the rumours, she pointed out that this has nothing to do with the Qiu's family business and that both families are on par. She stressed that the Lins' financial status does not depend outsiders.
