Soapy photos fuel divorce rumours

REVEALING pictures of Taiwanese singer-actress Annie Yi have surfaced on the Internet.

The pictures show the 39-year-old frolicking in a bathtub with soap suds and a towel around her head.

In one picture, she is topless with just her hands covering her ample breasts.

The pictures were shot in Japan in 2000 as part of a photo book titled Lover. That same year, she married Taiwanese singer Harlem Yu.

The photo book was released only in Japan, but the photos were circulated on the Internet just recently.

What we say

Annie's tumultuous relationship with Harlem has long been gossip fodder.

Taiwanese media reports have claimed that Harlem was upset because she had been photographed holding hands with a Taiwanese actor.

There was also talk that she and Harlem, 46, have secretly divorced. They have a 6-year-old son, Harry.

All this talk prompted Annie to voice out on her blog earlier this month that the speculation was untrue and that her husband 'didn't want out' of the union.

If anything, these latest pictures will continue fuelling talk that the two are just not getting along.

There are even reports that in 2004, Annie paid $20,000 for a series of sexy photographs done in the swimming pool of a five-star hotel.

But she never published them because Harlem disallowed it.

What would he say now?
