The real storm happened in May, when TV anchor Cui Yongyuan exposed on social media the existence of yin-yang contracts, or double contracts for the same job to help stars evade taxes. In short, for her new movie Cell Phone 2, Bingbing allegedly had a contract for 10 million yuan (S$2mil) and another one for 50 million yuan (S$10.4mil). If the allegations are true, it is assumed that Bingbing evaded tax by declaring only the former (and less-costly) contract.

Bingbing soon disappeared. Last seen publicly on July 1, her last Weibo activity was on July 26. She's rumoured to be holed up in a hidden location in Beijing , but we'll get to that soon - because what is an actress if she cannot act? According to Apple Daily, Bingbing has been banned by the Chinese authority from acting for three years, in addition to causing a 'witch hunt' for tax evasion in the industry. But that's not all - China’s State Authority of Taxation issued on August 7 a new regulation that is already making a drastic impact on the entire Chinese film industry. They raised the taxable amount of stars' salaries from 6.7 per cent to 42 per cent , or roughly a 7-fold jump. This new tax regulation is effective from January 2018, which means Bingbing has to pay an additional 500 million yuan (S$100 million) in taxes. The new law also caused over 70 movie projects to halt, with some production companies going bankrupt

Regarding Bingbing's wherabouts, an insider told Chinese broadcaster New Tang Dynasty Television that she's not been released from a secret location in Beijing by the authorities since being apprehended. According to the source, the 36-year-old is forbidden from concealing her hands on the bed while sleeping, turning off the lights, and is monitored 24 hours a day. Her situation was described as harshly devoid of freedom. Her mother Zhang Chuanmei was also reportedly questioned by officials.

The Chinese govt is flat out evil towards its own citizens.  Tax evasion is bad and shouldn’t be treated lightly, but this is just so incredibly extra, and the insane new tax increase on productions will severely prevent small budget films from being made.   Horrible.
