This is a wild one.
It all started last week when Wu Xiao-ping, the owner of Chinese tech company Hangzhou Miyun, wrote a post in a forum on Toutiao, a Chinese news app, claiming that "America's number one pop star is dating a middle-aged Chinese tech tycoon."
"Based on reports, America's number-one pop star is currently dating a middle-aged Chinese tech tycoon. If there is news of a marriage in a few months, then hahaha the world is going to be in absolute chaos. Maybe we should start speculating stock..."
The unsubstantiated post quickly went viral – being viewed more than 1.5 million times – and people went wild with their theories, which included Katy Perry...
"Could it be Katy Perry?"
