  • Fan Bingbing has not been seen in public since July following claims of tax evasion

According to The Hollywood Reporter, China's official state news outlet Xinhua issued a report suggesting that Fan may be facing a $70 million bill for back taxes and fines stemming from an alleged tax evasion scandal in China.

The tax bureau in the eastern coastal province of Jiangsu delivered its judgment to Ms Fan on Sunday, levying fines of more than 596 million yuan for tax evasion and assessing overdue taxes of more than 288 million yuan, Xinhua said.

The 37-year-old actor, whose June disappearance touched off wild speculation about her whereabouts, has appeared in the "X-Men" and "Iron Man" film franchises, attracting more than 62 million online followers in China.

Following the investigation into Fan, authorities have declared a wider crackdown on the entertainment industry, Xinhua said. Her studio had previously said the star never signed "yin-yang" contracts.

"I'm ashamed of my behavior and I apologize here to everyone", Fan wrote. "I apologise sincerely to everyone".

"During this period of investigation, I've been reflecting".

The rapper, whose legal name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, has been charged with reckless endangerment and assault. The band have announced their collaboration with singer and rapper Nicki Minaj on new single Woman Like Me .

Fan dropped off the radar that month, amid reports that she was involved in the investigation, a vanishing act that prompted reports she had been detained. She has been the face of brands such as Mercedes Benz and Cartier in China.

The Chinese actress who has been missing from the public eye since June has finally posted on social media, addressing the fines and back taxes she may owe the Chinese government.

Fan says she will pay the fines: "I totally accepted all of them, and will raise funds to pay my taxes and penalties regardless of any obstacles".

Fan was ordered to pay "hundred of millions" of yuan, Xinhua reported, without further details. In May, documents surfaced that seemed to indicate that Fan had been caught double-billing twice for the same work on a pair of as-yet-unidentified projects and paying taxes only on half of the amount she actually made.

Fan topped Forbes magazine's 2017 list of top-earning Chinese celebrities with income of 300m yuan ($43m).

A recent report by academics ranking the "social ranking" of Chinese celebrities placed Fan at the very bottom with a score of zero.
