Edison Chen Linked to Model Only Months After Breaking Up With Ann Hong
Hong Kong based actor, Edison Chen, isn't doing his rep a lot of favors.
Best known for his sex photo scandal that went viral on the Internet back in 2008, Chen is now being linked to a young Asian-European model, 14 years his junior, only two months after he and his girlfriend broke up.

Hong, who reportedly ended things with the actor after she discovered several flirtatious text messages he sent to other women, has apparently now been replaced by a 20 year old Chinese-Israeli model, Ashley Chung.
The 5 foot 9 model seems to have worked with Chen as a model for his fashion line, CLOT, after he wanted to search for a fresh face to represent his brand. Granted, Chung does bear a slight resemblance to Chen's now-ex, but regardless of his motivations for hiring her, she has apparently been appointed as the new model for CLOT.
Further spurring speculations about the rumored relationship is Chen who uploaded images on his blog of some photos featuring Chung for CLOT.
Chen's rep has spoken in behalf of the star to clear up the gossip, saying that as a professional, Chen would typically not get involved with the selection of the models for his fashion label.
Chen, who went through the notoriously publicized sex photo scandal in 2008, promptly went on an indefinite hiatus from the Hong Kong entertainment industry. He returned in 2010, though briefly, for a cameo in Golden Chickensss. His more recent projects include musical and entrepreneurial endeavors, including latest fashion line, CLOT.
