I guess this means that they’re back together?
Vivian Dawson, the rumoured boyfriend of Jolin Tsai, attended a media conference for Porter’s new line of handbags yesterday and was requested by the company to take a handbag home.
The model had a hard time deciding between a brown and a purple one, when Four Gifts actress Cynthia Wang suggested “the purple one is more suitable”.
Vivian did not seem to know Jolin’s preference for Hermès Birkin bags. His NT$4,750 (approximately S$200) gift pales in comparison to the S$28,000 pink ostrich skin Birkin bag the singer has.
Jolin is known for her love of Hermès bags. She once spent more than S$25,000 for a celadon ostrich skin Birkin bag in Japan.
At a recent dance practice, the singer was spotted with a Hermès Kelly Bag, which costs more than S$12,000. It was evident Jolin had expensive tastes, judging from the bags she carried.
How would she react to Vivian’s humble present?
“Jolin has always valued sincerity and not the price (of the present),” clarified the pop singer’s manager.
Once an unknown model earning less than NT$10,000, Vivian shot to stardom after his rumoured relationship with Jolin.
In a short span of five months, the model raised his popularity and net worth, pocketing more than NT$2 million (approximately S$84,000) from events and endorsements. Vivian is currently worth NT$150,000, ten times his previous net worth.
