Quan Yifeng: the beauty...and the beast?

Quan Yifeng the beauty...and the beast?

Just take a look at her 'achievement' so far in the Dept of Violence:
1. Quan Yifeng was once fined S$1,000 for having an altercation with a bowling alley attendant in 1996. (Heh. 'Altercation'. A fancy way of saying 'a noisy heated angry dispute'.)

2. Sometime in early January 2008, she's rumoured to have slapped her husband in public (at least there were 6 articles published in omy.sg). In November that year, she announced that she divorced Hong Rong, the husband. (The divorce was finalised in January 2009.)

3. And yesterday, she was reported to had verbally abused a taxi driver and got into a physical altercation with him. According to the report, police have even classified the case as theft because she took off with the taxi driver's car keys.

Yes, let's just hope her outburst of anger is just limited to bowling alley attendants, husbands, and taxi drivers. And not bloggers. Hur hur.

MEDIACORP artiste Quan Yifeng has made headlines again - but for the wrong reasons.

Lianhe Wanbao reported that a 52-year-old taxi driver, identified only as Mr Tan, has accused her of hitting him, thrashing his taxi and taking his car keys.

Quan who spoke to Wanbao from Mauritius, where she is filming, has denied his allegations and hit back by saying that he was rude, drove recklessly, and slammed a car door on her.

In Wanbao's report, Mr Tan was quoted as saying that the star lost her temper after he did not help her load her luggage into his taxi and asked 'what sort of service attitude is this?'.

He claimed she also swore at him in Hokkien, kicked him in the groin and locked herself in the taxi for 15 minutes, after accusing him of braking hard on purpose and throwing her forward.

According to Wanbao, police have classified the case as theft because she took off with his car keys. Quan is reported to be seeking legal advice.

From Straits Times, "Quan accused of 'taxi rage'".

A taxi driver claimed Sunday that Singapore television host Quan Yi Feng had verbally abused and got into a physical altercation with him, reported omy.sg.

The taxi driver, known only as Mr Tan, claimed to have picked up a male passenger on Saturday, who instructed him to head to a condominium before going to the airport.

When he arrived at the condominium, Quan boarded the taxi with her 11-year-old daughter.

Tan said that the tussle started after he refused to help Quan move her luggage onto his vehicle when she boarded the cab as he had an elbow injury, although he did not tell her about it at the time.

Quan then became upset and verbally abused him.

On the way to the airport, Tan stopped the taxi sharply at a junction, throwing Quan forward. She allegedly became enraged and accused Tan of doing it on purpose even after the cabbie explained that she should have worn her seat belt.

He claimed that Quan then alighted, kicked a car door and kicked him in the groin. She went on to lock herself in the taxi and thrashed it.

Tan reportedly said that "she (Quan) was out of control and made a mess of the taxi. I was very frightened. The keys were in her hand and I was worried she might drive off so I stood in front of the vehicle to prevent her from doing so."

The 52-year-old cabbie added that Quan smiled at him before getting down and boarding another taxi while still holding the keys to his vehicle.

He claimed she even made a 'V' sign with her fingers as the other taxi pulled away and a crowd of onlookers gathered.

Tan said this was the first time he had encountered such a serious incident in his 12 years as a taxi driver.

The case has reportedly been referred to the police.

Quan, 36, has denied that she had behaved as Tan had described.

Her manager told Channelnewsasia.com that Quan, who is currently filming in Mauritius, has since engaged a lawyer and will only respond further on this issue after she consults with her lawyer.

Quan was once fined S$1,000 for having an altercation with a bowling alley attendant in 1996.

From Channel NewsAsia, "Quan Yi Feng accused of abusing cabbie".

MR TAN, a 52-year-old taxi driver, has accused MediaCorp artiste Quan Yifeng of wrecking his taxi and even kicking him in the groin.

But Quan Yifeng has come back with allegations of her own that he slammed his car door on her, and swore at her.

On Saturday, Lianhe Wanbao reported that a member of the public witnessed the taxi driver arguing with Quan Yifeng, who was accompanied by her daughter an unidentified man who looked to be in his 30s, around East Coast.

The taxi driver told Lianhe Wanbao that he picked up a male passenger on Saturday at 8.45am, who then asked him to go to Hua Xin Condominium to pick up more passengers, then head to Changi airport.

The two other passengers turned out to be Quan Yifeng and her 11-year-old daughter, who were heading to Mauritius where Yifeng was filming.

When he refused to help her with her luggage, the 36-year-old artiste lost her temper and continued to make things difficult for him as they drove towards the airport, including swearing at him in hokkien, shoving and hitting him.

After alighting, he said that she kicked his groin and a car door, then locked herself in the taxi for 15 minutes to thrash it.

The police has classified the case as theft because she left in another cab with his car keys, according to Lianhe Wanbao.

In a call from Mauritius, the MediaCorp artiste told Wanbao that she did not take his keys, nor thrash his taxi. She also said she was the one who called the police after their altercation, but had to leave to catch her flight.

She said she shoved him and kicked his car door because he blocked her as she was trying to get her luggage.

Quan Yifeng is now seeking legal advice, Wanbao reported.

From Asiaone, "Quan Yifeng and cab driver: Who is right?".
