20 Sep – Rumour has it that S.H.E's member Ella Chen is planning to start her own company after her contract with HIM International Music ends.
Asian Crunch website reported that the media is buzzing with news that the 31-year-old singer has asked her fellow band mates, Selina Jen and Hebe Tian to join her new label and that her husband, Alvin Lai will serve as their manager.
Adding more sparks to the rumour are reports saying that Lai had already quit his job as an assistant marketing manager at Taiwan's L'Oreal Group on 15 September, stating that he has other future plans.
However, HIM International Music denied the rumours, saying, "The S.H.E members are one of the company's shareholders. It is unlikely for them to leave the company."
They added, "We're like a family unit and Ella has never mentioned about leaving the company."
No comments were made about the trio's contracts that will be up for renewal in 2013.
