[The Epoch Times, Tachwedd 16, 2022](Reported by Epoch Times reporter Tong Yijia) 59-year-old mainland singer Mao Amin has faded out of the entertainment industry since getting married in 2003. Unexpectedly, her wealthy businessman husband Xie Zhikun died suddenly of a stroke at the heart in 2021, leaving the “Zhikun Group” with a fortune of 26 billion yuan (RMB, the same below), but Mao Amin did not take over the management. A few days ago, she was singing on stage and attracting attention.
Mao Amin, who was once very popular, sang for the official movie Golden Rooster Awards a few days ago, which was also her first performance after losing her husband. That night, she wore a black dress and sang with singer Jane Zhang for more than 6 minutes. Many netizens were surprised and speculated that Mao Amin’s return after a long absence could be related to her husband’s death.
On 18 December last year, Mao Amin’s husband, Xie Zhikun, died suddenly of a heart attack aged 60. Many people were surprised. On the one hand, it was because of Mao Amin’s reputation, and on the other hand, Xie Zhikun was one of the nine capital tycoons in China. According to Caixin.com, before the sudden death of Xie Zhikun, the top leaders of the CCP often released signals to crack down on financial predators and strictly control capital flight. In addition to Xiao Jianhua’s “Department of Tomorrow”, there were ” Xie Zhikun’s “Zhongzhi Department” is also included.
After Mao Amin married Xie Zhikun in 2003, they gave birth to a daughter and a son in three years. After marriage, Mao Amin also faded out of the entertainment circle and devoted herself to raising her husband and raising her children.
According to the annual “New Fortune 500 Rich List” released by the mainland magazine “New Fortune” in 2018, Mao Amin and Xie Zhikun and his wife ranked 129th in the “2018 New Fortune 500 Rich List” with net worth of 18 billion At the time, many netizens were surprised that Mao Amin and her husband were on the rich list together. However, in fact, 2018 is the second year in a row that Mao Amin has been on the list with her husband after being on the “2017 New Fortune 500 Rich List”.
At that time, the CCP officially announced the punishment decision for Fan Bingbing’s involvement in tax evasion. Fan Bingbing had to pay about 884 million in taxes, late fees and fines in order to avoid prison.
Mao Amin became popular across the country in 1987 with the song “Missing”, and became a “Queen” level female singer in the mainland pop music scene in the 1980s and 1990s. Everything seemed to be going well for her, but unexpectedly, in the seven years from 1989 to 1996, she was involved in tax evasion twice.
The first time was Zhang Yong, her former manager and lover, who swept away all her money overnight; after the second tax crisis started, he left directly to go abroad. Her manager, Ye Shaoduo, committed suicide a few months after the incident. Until 2000, Mao Amin paid the tax and gradually disappeared from the music world after returning to Shanghai.
After Xie Zhikun’s death, Mao Amin transferred the management of “Zhikun Group” to Xie Zhikun’s nephew, but did not give it to his own children. In this regard, Mao Amin explained that “expertise in the art industry”, because his children are not adults yet, so he handed them over to someone who knows how to manage them, hoping to keep the company.
