First, it was reported that the gambling agreement failed in June, and he had to mortgage his mansion to the bank for loan. Recently, he filed a lawsuit with his ex girlfriend because of an old debt.
According to the global times on the 19th, the case of Zhou Xingchis recovery of HK $70 million investment commission by his ex girlfriend Yu Wenfeng was heard in the Hong Kong High Court on the 18th, arousing the concern of Hong Kong media.
According to Hong Kongs Ming Pao and Economic Daily on November 18, Zhou Xingchi and Yu Wenfeng were not present on the day of the trial, and their lawyers were present. The trial of the case is expected to last for several days.
According to the global times, Yu Wenfeng, through senior counsel yuan Guoqiang, said that Yu Wenfeng and Zhou Xingchi fell in love from 1997 to 2010. Yu Wenfeng studied business courses in American universities. Her father is the founder of Hong Kong construction. She has a deep understanding of fund management and architecture. While Stephen Chow focuses on the film industry. Although he has set up a company, he is not responsible for the daily operation. In 2002, Zhou signed an agreement with Yu Wenfeng. Yu Wenfeng was the financial consultant of the company with a monthly salary of HK $20000. The two sides reached an agreement on 10% of Wenfengs shares after the Christmas negotiations of the same year. The investment products include several funds and real estate, and Zhou Xingchi is still in arrears of more than 70 million Hong Kong dollars.

Senior counsel representing Mr. Zhou denied that Mr. Zhou agreed in 2002 to distribute 10% of the investment profit to Yu Wenfeng. He said that when the two spent Christmas Eve together in their apartment in 2002, Zhou Xingchi proposed to give each other 10% of the investment profit. The money was at best a gift, and it was Zhous love words when he was in love. It was not a commercial decision and had no legal binding force.
Zhou Xingchis side also questioned that after three years of working in Wenfeng, she fell in love with Zhou Xingchi in 1997 and did not work in her fathers company. Her investment experience and ability became questionable. On the contrary, Zhou Xingchi had real estate investment experience before 1996, and had rich principal, so he had more investment ability than his ex girlfriend. The lawyer also mentioned that Yu Wenfeng lost HK $13 million in stocks and other areas after taking over the investment affairs of Zhou Xingchi, but the plaintiff avoided talking about it.
The dispute stems from the luxury house business 16 years ago
Yu Wenfeng is the youngest daughter of Yu Jingbo, one of the founders of Hong Kong construction (00190, HK), who graduated from diocesan womens college, Hong Kong Economic Daily reported. His father, Yu Jingbo, founded the Hong Kong Institution in 1973 with Xiong Gu group of Japan. The institution was listed on the stock exchange in 1987 and renamed as Hong Kong Construction in 2004. He has participated in large-scale projects such as the new airport of Hong Kong, Tsing Ma Bridge and reclamation projects. In the mainland, he has also participated in projects such as Guangzhou CITIC Plaza and Shenzhen Diwang building.
Yu Wenfeng said that she and Zhou Xingchi had been together for 13 years and formally separated in March 2010. During their 13 years in love, Yu Wenfeng has been serving as Zhou Xingchis financial consultant, providing him with financial investment services.
In 2004, Mr. Chow bought the tianbigao site at a price of 320 million yuan, introduced the developer LingDian development cooperation for reconstruction, and applied to the Hong Kong Lands Department for the reconstruction of a total of four three storey independent villas, and changed the house number to 10, 12, 16 and 18, respectively. It is said that the house is four and a half stories high, with gardens and swimming pools, and overlooking the Victoria Harbour sea view.
Among them, No. 10, No. 16 and No. 18 have been sold successively, with a total harvest of HK $1.45 billion.

According to previous reports of Shanghai Securities News, Yu Wenfeng stated in September 2012 when he filed a petition with the Hong Kong high court that when Zhou Xingchi invested in Tianbi Gao, Yu Wenfeng advised Zhou Xingchi to invest when he learned from market news that Citibank intended to sell the property. At that time, she also relied on her personal connections to recommend Zhou Xingchi to develop cooperation with LingDian, otherwise Zhou Xingchi would not be able to complete the sales contract within one month.
Continuous loss of listed companies
As for the reason for the mortgage, some media said that it may be the need for capital turnover, or related to the gambling agreement signed by Zhou Xingchi.
However, according to Qilu Evening News, on October 20, Beijing Jingshi law firm said it had accepted the entrustment of Zhou Xingchi to issue a lawyers statement, saying that the report that Zhou Xingchi owed huge debts to investors was not true. It was clarified in the statement that Zhou Xingchi failed in gambling on film investment and owed a huge amount of debts to the investor, which was seriously inconsistent with the facts. Zhou has always adhered to the business philosophy of good faith and has been diligent and responsible for his shareholding company. His business activities are all made in accordance with the law and the contract.
In addition, it is also speculated that Zhou Xingchis mortgage may be necessary for the preparation of his new work Kung Fu 2. Last year, Zhou Xingchi confirmed that he would shoot Kung Fu 2.
There is also a view that Stephen Chows mortgage of luxury housing may be to inject liquidity into the higher operating ratio of his own listed companies.
In May 2010, the company changed its name to bingogroup Limited (8220. HK) and was listed on the Hong Kong GEM. At that time, Zhou Xingchi had become the largest shareholder of the company, directly or indirectly holding 35.64% of the shares. Since then, he has acquired shares several times and has now become the absolute controlling shareholder of bigo group. According to the interim report of financial year 2020 / 21 disclosed by bigo group on November 13, Zhou Xingchi directly or indirectly held 50.23% of the issued shares of the group.
However, bigot group has been losing money for years, and its share price has fallen to less than HK $0.1. According to the GSD of bigo group in recent 10 years, the groups net profit has only reached HK $12.97 million in 2013 since 2011, and the remaining years have been negative, with a cumulative loss of nearly HK $600 million in the past 10 years.
According to Hong Kong media reports, in recent years, the total box office of six films made by Stephen Chow behind the scenes has reached HK $7.9 billion, of which Mermaid in 2016 accounted for more than HK $4 billion.
However, more and more audiences are not paying attention to the journey to the West in 2017. The film quality is not satisfactory, and the style is fixed, which makes the diction of everyone owes Stephen Chow a movie ticket from emotion to irony.
Then to the later the king of new comedy, the name of the big, IP ring, unparalleled. However, in the final box office performance competition of the new years Eve in 2019, only 615 million the king of new comedy was won, not to mention that it is difficult to expect the wandering earth with 4.319 billion box office, and even the 691 million bear failed to win, which is surprising.
Qing Lius failure in gambling? Mortgage luxury house? Zhou Xingchis wealth truth
Zhou Xingchi, known as the star master in the world, is the ancestor of Wulitou and the king of film comedy. The star master has not acted for many years, but I believe that many people like qingliujun, redraw the star masters films countless times.
However, in recent years, Xingye has generally entered a water reverse period. Not only has the box office hit the street, but the performance of its Hong Kong listed companies has not been a big splash.

In addition, qingliujun also found that when Xingye failed in the performance gambling, he also had disputes with the listed companies that signed the gambling agreement. In addition, the lawsuit of Yu Wenfeng, the former girlfriend of Xingye, to recover HK $70 million also opened in November. This is also the case. In June this year, the news that Xingye mortgaged his mansion to motongdagen attracted peoples attention.
