A Hong Kong singer has been accused of lying about her actual age of “pretending to be young.”
Gloria Tang, who was thought to be 29, faces a setback after a self-proclaimed former classmate reveals her real age to local media.
The anonymous source went on to slam the songwriter, saying “she lied to the audience and treated her fans like idiots.”
Gloria Tang, an award-winning independent songwriter from Hong Kong, faces a setback after a source told local media that the star, believed to be 29, is much older. Selfie photos from Gloria’s social media pages have shown the celebrity looking youthful with a porcelain skin
The star is actually 41 – rather than 29 – a source that claimed to be the singer’s old school friend Apple Daily, a tabloid magazine from Hong Kong, on Monday.
The unnamed source also attacked the public figure, saying that “her skin doesn’t look like she was born in the 1990s.”
A screenshot from Gloria’s previous Wikipedia page, acquired by Apple Daily, suggests she was born in 1990.
Her date of birth on the web page has been updated to 1978 after reports indicated that she pretended to be younger.
The singer later confirmed to reporters that the prosecutor went to the same high school with her.

Gloria denied that she had lied to her fans. She said she didn’t write her date of birth on the Wikipedia page because anyone could edit the website.
“Age is my privacy,” she told Apple Daily. Anyone could change the Wikipedia page.
“My company and I both think I sell music, not my childhood,” she added.
The star has not confirmed or denied if she is 41.
After releasing her debut album in 2004, Gloria has received numerous music awards in Hong Kong.
According to her official website, the singer and songwriter has also composed music for independent films and commercials.
