Unfortunately, Fan suddenly disappeared from the social eye for a brief period post the scandal around yin-yang contracts. Some actors openly addressed the humungous gap in payments, suggesting that an average actor makes $300 to $450 a day on the set, but Fan earns disparately more than such actors.
After these claims surfaced, the Chinese government imposed an immediate fine of $130 million. Fan apologized for this tax evasion publicly through her social media post.
