Following the release of her first album Me, Myself and I recently, Taiwanese singer-actress Michelle Chen’s past relationship came to light as it was revealed that she penned the lyrics to the song ‘Sorry’ for her ex-boyfriend Aron, who is currently serving a 16-year jail sentence.
The track, which Michelle described as “a song filled with guilt”, was previously speculated to be written for Alan Kuo whom she secretly dated for eight months.
Michelle and Aron reportedly met when they were studying in the United States. The ex-couple returned to Taiwan in 2006 and eventually broke up as a result of the actress’ decision to pursue a showbiz career.
An insider also claimed that Aron, who is said to be born in a rich family, fell under the influence of bad friends after splitting with Michelle. Unfamiliar with the Taiwanese laws, the kind-hearted lad was manipulated by his new ‘friends’ and was subsequently sentenced to imprisonment for marijuana possession.
According to media reports, Aron was very “touched and thankful” when he heard that Michelle has written a song for him. In order to protect his ex-girlfriend’s image, he did not mention about the relationship to anyone for the past four years in jail, declining to discuss further details with the media after it was exposed.
Michelle’s manager has also declined to comment on the artiste’s personal affairs.
