I am sorry to take up everyone's time and attention. I was single two years ago and had relations with Ms. C. The private affairs between the two parties have been properly resolved in 2021, and there is no further entanglement with each other. What needs to be clarified to everyone and the media here is that the relationship between Ms. C and I were from two willing parties. There is no "Underaged Woman" nor there so-called " Forced Abortion." There are no illegal acts, I implore the relevant self-media not to spread rumors nor believe in rumors. This lesson was painful for me. During these two years, I was also blaming myself and regretting. I apologize again to my fans who have always supported and trusted me, and to the media friends who have been following my development and growth. In the future, I will strictly restrain my words and deeds and accept the supervision of the public and society. Please also respect and protect the personal privacy of the parties especially Ms. C."
