Playboy Perv Outdoes Edison Chen With Massive Video Trove

About 60 models and celebrities, including some A-listers, were filmed having sexual intercourse with a second-generation-rich Taiwan playboy.

In the files from the playboy pervert’s computer, police found that 10 of the women were unconscious during the lovemaking process. It is suspected they may have been drug-raped.

Justin Lee (李宗瑞), the son of Yuanta Financial Holding’s director Lee Yue-tsang (李岳蒼), has been put on the wanted list but investigators worry he might flee to the US as he also holds a US passport.

The 27-year-old is an infamous party animal and loves showing off his wealth at night clubs.

He has often been seen French kissing models and celebrities at pubs in Taipei and elsewhere on the island.

His name has been romantically linked with models Bianca Bai (白歆惠), Ruru Lin (林葦茹) and Gina Lin (林利霏).

But they all flatly denied they had anything whatsoever to do with him.

Model-actress Maggie Wu (吳亞馨), the only celebrity who admits having dated him, claimed she lost contact with him many years ago but did not respond when asked whether she was one of his sex film victims.

Terri Kwan‘s (關穎) management company, on the other hand, threatened to sue Next Magazine, which put a group photo of Justin, Terri and several unknown females in its story, leading the public to suspect Terri might be one of Justin’s sex slaves.
