Jeannie Hsieh, Taiwanese singer and dancer known for writing and performing music which combines techno and hip-hop, revealed in a letter why she had repeatedly and coldly refused to meet with her father, Chu Ke-liang, birth name Hsieh Hsin-ta, the famous Taiwanese actor, comedian and television show host.
The letter was broadcast in a video during her concert at Taipei Arena on Saturday night. In the letter, Jeannie said her father made her mother accept a request to bring his mistress to live under the same roof. Jeannie said it was the most humiliating past in her mother’s life.
Chu said publicly before the concert on Saturday that he would attend Jeannie’s concert. But his daughter said she didn’t want him to come or see him. However, Chu had 22 flower baskets sent to the venue and showed up at the concert. Chu stayed for nearly two hours; but with no chances of seeing his daughter personally, he left before the concert ended, commenting on his own life as a failure. [FULL STORY]
