fter stepping forward about the domestic abuse she suffered at the hands of her ex-boyfriend Jiang Jinfu, a Japanese model has now said that the Chinese star’s violence towards her caused her to miscarry.
Earlier this week, Haruka Nakura, who is known in China as Zhongpu Youhua, posted photos onto Instagram of her bruised face, neck, and arms, revealing that her former boyfriend, Jiang Jinfu, a 27-year-old model-turned-actor with more than 17 million followers on Weibo, was responsible for the brutal injuries.
Soon afterward, Jiang posted a statement on his social media account, admitting to domestic violence, saying that he had spent the past month in “repentance and remorse” and apologizing to his ex-girlfriend along with his family, friends, and fans.
However, on Wednesday, Nakura posted another photo of her bruised face onto Instagram, writing that if Jiang was truly sorry then he should apologize to her in person rather than sending out a statement over Weibo. “You’ve been in hiding for a month and now you want to apologize? she wrote, adding that she had been waiting for him to contact her but apparently he only paid attention to social media.
Nakura then went on to write that Jiang’s abuse had caused her to suffer a miscarriage. “You kicked your own child. You kicked my stomach until I miscarried,” she said.
Though many on Chinese social media had condemned Jiang’s violence, a not insignificant number of them had actually voiced their support for the actor, charging that Nakura essentially had it coming, spreading rumors about how she had been unfaithful to him.
In her Instagram post, Nakura rejected these rumors, saying that she never even had the opportunity to cheat. “You deleted all of my family and friends from my contacts,” she wrote. “I was with you for 24 hours a day for four months and you took away my cell phone during that time. How could I have relationships with other men?”
Nakura’s Instagram account has since been deleted.
Meanwhile, earlier today, Jiang Jinfu’s lawyer issued a statement, saying that the domestic violence case against Jiang was now going through the Japanese legal system and asking that everyone cease speculating about the case, particularly in regards to Nakura’s alleged miscarriage.
Jiang started off as a model before becoming famous across the country for starring in the popular TV drama Xuan-Yang Sword: Scar of Sky in 2012. He has since gone on to act in a number of television series and film. This year, he decided to take a break from acting and go study abroad in Japan. Soon, he and Hakaura were dating and sharing their photos together on Instagram.
