Chu Hong Guang’s face was gloomy. “Tell me, what exactly happened?”
Cai Yong Sheng was very upset. He exclaimed, “Uncle, I didn’t do anything at all! It was that Ye Bai. He betrayed the company and had the guts to take the company’s artists and staff away – he’s rebelling!”
How could Chu Hong Guang not have possibly known what was going on the past few days? He simply turned a blind eye, that was all.
Ye Bai had too much of the limelight and he merely wanted to use Cai Yong Sheng to knock him down a little. He did a background check on Ye Bai – he was born in an ordinary family and didn’t have any power, influence or status. He saw far too many people like this and once they got some power, they couldn’t bear giving up on what they had.
But who knew that this time, he was wrong…
At the end of the day, it was still this nephew of his who was too dumb and reckless.
“I told you countless times to know your limits. When you’re dealing with Ye Bai, you have to bribe him, but don’t go overboard. Most importantly, you have to make good use of him. Well done – you had such good cards in your hands, but you messed it up!” Chu Hong Guang was furious.
Cai Yong Sheng looked slightly guilty but his expression turned to rage very quickly. He complained, “Uncle, you can’t blame me. This was entirely that guy’s fault! He’s so ungrateful! Everyone knew I’m your nephew and cooperated with me, but he was the only one who kept trying to get in the way of my work.”
“You weren’t there to see it – during the recording today, he completely embarrassed me. Did you know what that guy said? He said he was here to take his own people away! And he even encouraged Gong Xu and Luo Chen to follow him!”
“Uncle, he wasn’t just disrespecting me – he doesn’t even take you seriously! This kind of person with wild schemes would be a liability to the company even if he stayed!”
Chu Hong Guang scoffed, “Luo Chen and Gong Xu are the two most profitable artists in Dazzling – what are you planning to do without them now?”
Cai Yong Sheng rolled his eyes and said, “Although we can’t do anything about Felix, Gong Xu and Luo Chen’s contracts are still with the company and this early termination is a breach of contract – we can make them compensate us to their deaths! Gong Xu doesn’t have his family’s backing anymore and Luo Chen just recently became popular; they wouldn’t be able to pay the fines!”
Chu Hong Guang glanced at his nephew and sneered, “Gong Xu’s contract was drawn up specifically for him and he only has to pay the compensation listed in the contract. Luo Chen’s contract already reached the five-year mark last month and expired, so Ye Bai made him sign a new one – that contract doesn’t have any loopholes at all either!”
When Cai Yong Sheng heard that, he was dumbfounded and gritted his teeth immediately.
He almost forgot Gong Xu entered the industry using his status as the young master of the Gong family, so naturally, nobody dared to tamper with his contract at all. And Ye Bai changed Luo Chen’s contract long ago…
“Uncle, this was definitely premeditated long ago!” Cai Yong Sheng spoke in agitation.
Chu Hong Guang pinched his brows and his face turned ugly – Luo Chen was so popular now and after his contract expired, Ye Bai gave him a better deal in order to make him stay. There was nothing fishy about that, so he didn’t have any objections then.
Who knew that this nephew of his would cause such a big mess!
Cai Yong Sheng was afraid he upset Chu Hong Guang, so he hurriedly said, “Uncle, we’re a big company. We can survive without them! Don’t worry, uncle. Lucy just debuted a few months ago and she’s already gaining popularity, right? I’ll definitely groom a few more A-listers and superstars for you!”
