Taiwanese singer, A-mei, a mother of an 18-year-old daughter?

Is Taiwanese singing sensation A-mei the mother of an 18-year-old daughter?

A man, who says that his surname is Lin, has approached Apple Daily claiming to be A-mei's ex-husband and the father of their 18-year-old daughter, reported Lianhe Wanbao.

Mr Lin alleged that he was A-mei's former classmate back in Taidong, a city in the Eastern part of Taiwan. He said that they married without throwing a wedding dinner.

He said: "All the people in Taidong know about us. Our information can be retrieved from the Department of Household Registration."

Although he called himself A-mei's ex-husband, he told the tabloid that they have never filed for a divorce and referred to the pop star as his wife throughout the interview.

However, inconsistencies were found in his story - the most glaring being the age of his alleged daughter.

During the interview, Mr Lin said that his daughter was born in 1994. If she - and the marriage - really existed, the daughter would be at most 15 this year, not 18, continued the report.

When asked to fax over his identity card and household list, both of which Mr Lin claimed had proof of the union, he waved the reporter off, saying: "You should be able to find these out for yourself, seeing that reporters are good at retrieving information."

A-mei, who was once banned from visiting Mainland China, is currently dating basketball star He Shou Zheng.
