Fan Bingbing and her younger brother, idol group member Fan Chengcheng may have a 19-year age difference, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t close. Apart from posting the occasional selfie together, Chengcheng is not shy to share more about his famous older sister on television as well.
In fact, Chengcheng went so far as to spill the beans on his older sister’s love life (or well, lack thereof), during a recent episode of the talk show, Peng You Qing Ting Hao.
The host of the show, Xie Na, got the ball rolling by asking the 19-year-old if he would let his parents know if he were to get in a relationship.
Chengcheng immediately replied in the negative, before sharing his reason for doing so, which was linked to Bingbing.
As it turns out, Bingbing had a male admirer when she was younger. “They were just friends, and he had decided to accompany Bingbing and walk with her,” he said.
However, Bingbing and her friend were spotted by her father.
Once he reached this part of the story, Chengcheng hesitated for a bit, before divulging what happened to Bingbing when she got home.
“She was beaten by both my mum and dad at home. My dad and mum even said that it was the first time they were so well-coordinated, with the both of them hitting [Bingbing] with clothes hangers,” he said.
After the episode aired, netizens started leaving comments about Chengcheng’s anecdote, with some sharing that famous sibs' parents are "way too strict”. A netizen also corroborated Chengcheng’s story, stating that Bingbing had once shared about her parents “hitting her like they were playing in a mixed doubles match".
Another netizen then took the opportunity to throw some shade at Bingbing, commenting, “her parents have always been so strict with her, but she still ended up evading taxes when she grew up”.
