Edison Chen Net Worth $45 Million Dollars

The 2008 sex scandal involved sexually explicit naked photos of Chen shot four years earlier, which became extensively circulated on-line. Initially the credibility of the photographs was denied and digital exploitation was offered as the main explanation for the photographs. Hong Kong authorities and Photoshop pros claimed the photographs were in fact real and not digitally changed. Chen made a public apology in English to the Hong Kong people as well as the girls associated with the photographs and indirectly acknowledged his part, expressing remorse and later announcing his indefinite departure from the Hong Kong entertainment industry. Chen was runner-up to U.S. president elect Barack Obama in the Hong Kong Man of 2008 survey by government-run RTHK radio, with just under 30 percent of votes in the Person of the Year group.
