Chapter 1443 Tit for Tat 5
Despite having debuted for a decade already, the current hottest idol in showbiz and the nation’s heavenly king was still in his heyday. With his career on the rise even today, there were more prospective developments to come.
Alas, the contract was terminated just like that.
At first, people thought that the two had a disagreement, leading to the superstar ‘ditching’ his ace manager. It was only later that they learned the two had parted amicably.
They got even more baffled.
Things were enigmatic and unclear.
Even now, not many understood why the manager let go of a cash cow, signed on a newbie, and unhesitatingly spared no resources on her.
What was even crazier was that he had actually created hype for his new artist at the expense of the superstar’s popularity.
He must have gone crazy.
Could she have… been taken advantage of by the star manager?
Countless individuals seemed inclined to believe this possibility that, in return for his effort in supporting her to fame, he got something from her.
Managers tended to have the same status as their charges, but it was different for him. As an ace manager with the golden resources of an A-lister and as a shareholder in Huanyu, Qin Zhou was wealthy, formidable, and had a broad network of connections.
Putting all these aside, the point was that… he had an idol-looking face.
As such, countless female celebs were waiting in line for his favor.
Alas, like the superstar, Qin Zhou was averse to women. Many, therefore, thought him to be gay.
At the thought of this, Lin Zhi eyed the newbie with malice and disgust.
Yun Shishi astutely noted her sinister glare.
At this, she retracted her glare at once, lifted her haughty chin, and smirked in an elegant and indifferent manner. “It’s been many years since my debut. Having been in the industry for years, my acting skills have become polished and refined. While I didn’t have the potential in the past, things are different now!”
“Huh. I hope so.” The manager sneered.
Unable to bear with the actress’s arrogance, Yun Shishi gave an innocent laugh, tilted her head, and asked in feigned naivety, “Eh? Senior, are you here for the fashion show?”
Without waiting for the other to reply, he immediately cut in. “Shishi, you don’t know about this, but some people, for the sake of walking the red carpet, pulled two all-nighters in a row to rush here from afar!”
Lin Zhi’s face flushed in anger at that, and she glared at him with eyes full of puzzlement, hurt, and most of all, anger.
“Mr. Qin, you… you’ve gone too far with that comment!” She lifted her head haughtily. “As the spokesperson for their new spring collection, ‘Nectar’, it’s normal for me to receive this brand’s invitation! You saying that I did it for the sake of walking the red carpet is mere slander.”
“How capable of you to be the spokesperson for the press conference! Ha ha! It’s enough that you bragged about yourself in public; aren’t you afraid of disgracing yourself when you do the same in front of me?” mocked and ridiculed the man mercilessly.
Her face darkened.
Louis Vuitton had three different marketing titles—brand partners, brand endorsers, and brand ambassadors—which could be easily confused with one another, but in fact, they had substantial differences.
For events like the Milan Fashion Week, that particular brand would select celebs or guests who matched its class and then invite them to this event as brand partners. This was done all to create hype for the brand.
