Chinese model Mavis Pan broke her silence on a series of racy lingerie photos that have surfaced recently, during a Hong Kong television interview on Wednesday, reported Hong Kong media. Pan, who is currently embroiled in a ‘bedroom photo’ scandal with popular Hong Kong actor Raymond Lam, claimed that she was cheated into taking these revealing photos, some of which even exposed her private regions, when she was still a teenager.
“Those photos were taken when I first arrived in Beijing and at the time, I didn’t know anything but just felt I liked this line (modelling). I didn’t have my parent’s blessings so I went to Beijing alone. “I went to audition for this advertisement and naively thought any opportunity is still an opportunity,” said Pan. “At first, they said I just had to model pyjamas and there weren’t any problems with them when I tried them on.” “But after I signed the contract and went for the photo shoot, the clothes were completely different.”
“I was very timid at the time, I was in my teens, I got scared and cried but they threatened me and asked me to pay damages. I came to Beijing against my family’s wishes. I had no money so I took the photos,” said Pan sombrely. “I kept thinking that after the shoot, the photos will slowly disappear.”
