Speaking during an episode on 15 April on the Chinese variety show, Ace versus Ace, Taiwanese singer Angela Zhang opened up about her relationship with her family.
She reflected on being diagnosed with a heart condition back in 2008, and her mother purportedly refused to help her financially.
Her mother told her that they had no money, which Zhang said was impossible because her mother was the one handling all of her finances.
Zhang then discovered that her mother had secretly transferred all of her property to her (her mother) name and was shocked to see her home being sealed up for seizure, describing it as feeling betrayed.
Zhang’s mother, Jiang Rouyi; her father, Zhang Zhihong; and her uncle, Jiang Lile, called her out in a magazine interview in 2009, calling her an “unfilial daughter” for refusing to help them financially.
Zhang then hit back at them during a press conference, saying that her mother stole her savings of about SGD$3.41 million (about NT$100 million).
She also expressed how grateful she was to her younger sister who traveled to Taiwan to help her, adding that she would’ve been homeless had it not been for her sister’s help.
