Rainie Yang: Prince and I are just friends
Following Prince’s clarification of the dating rumours between him and Rainie Yang via his microblog recently, Rainie Yang also spoke up to share her side of the story.
The Taiwanese singer-actress showed up in public for the first time yesterday, after rumours of her relationship with Prince, a member of Taiwanese boy band JPM, broke out.
According to the Taiwanese media, fans of the duo have been engaged in an online dispute after the pair’s alleged romance was exposed when they were caught vacationing in Hawaii recently. Rainie’s fans claimed that Prince does not deserve Rainie, while Prince’s fans argued that Rainie was undeserving of his love.
Responding to the controversy and rumours, Prince clarified through his microblog that Rainie and him are just “seeing each other normally as friends” and pleaded his fans to stop attacking Rainie and her fans.
Some fans interpreted his comment as an indirect acknowledgement of their relationship. However, Rainie dismissed the possibility and said, “He didn’t mean it that way, everyone has their own interpretation, but please don’t misunderstand, he wasn’t acknowledging the relationship!”
She added, “We are just friends who can get along with each other very well. Just treat these rumours as a form of entertainment and laugh it off.”
When asked if she was worried that the dispute between her fans and Prince’s fans would affect her popularity, Rainie replied that she would not be bothered by such issues.
Dismissing the rumours of her and Prince caught wearing “couple sunglasses” in Hawaii, Rainie claimed that they have similar taste and coincidentally picked the same pair of sunglasses. The only difference is the colour of the sunglasses lenses, she added.
