Hsus refute domestic violence report

TAIPEI, Taiwan - Dee Hsu and her husband held a press conference in front of a Taipei City police station to refute a media report that she suffered domestic violence by her husband yesterday afternoon; the couple will sue the Apple Daily for the report, local media reported yesterday.

Accompanied by the police, Hsu and her husband, Mike Hsu, appeared in the press conference to deny the report, which said the couple had a quarrel over her late return and after hit by her husband, Dee Hsu decided to call the Taipei City Center for Prevention of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault and after evaluation, the center thought it necessary to report the case to the police.

However, both the police and the center said yesterday morning they had never received such a domestic violence report from Dee Hsu.

Dee Hsu clarified that the domestic violence was a fabricated news story, highlighting the impossibility to experience violence in a happy marriage; she also emphasized she had only been to the police station once so far, when she was caught riding a scooter when she was below 18 in her junior high school life.

Mike Hsu said it was unethical for the new media to craft news in order to stimulate circulations.
