HK star considered suicide

A Hong Kong pop star caught in a sex photo scandal that shocked the Chinese-speaking world early last year said she considered suicide after the pictures were leaked on the Internet.

In an interview that aired on Saturday, Gillian Chung of the Hong Kong female pop duo Twins said "there was one point when I couldn't see my future and thought the only thing I could do was to end my life."

But in her first interview since the scandal, the 28-year-old singer told Hong Kong broadcaster TVB that she realized "death wouldn't solve the problem."

The photos ?? taken by her on and off again boyfriend, Chinese-Canadian actor-singer Edison Chen ?? showed him and eight Hong Kong stars performing sex acts. The scandal early last year forced Chen and the stars to take a break from the entertainment industry.

Chen resurfaced two weeks ago to testify against the computer technician who allegedly stole the pictures from his laptop in Canada.
