China's "piano prince" is getting disappeared after being arrested for hiring a sex worker


Chinese police have detained a prominent concert pianist and reality TV personality, Li Yundi, dubbed the “piano prince”, on allegations of hiring a sex worker. 

 The charges were revealed by Beijing police in posts on a Chinese social media network that read more like a trailer for a TV show than an official law enforcement notice. 


The news shocked China and divided opinion, with nearly 800m views of the hashtag “LiYundiDetainedForProstitution” in just two hours after the police post, Reuters reported. “My God. Li Yundi, the piano prince?” one shocked online commentator wrote.
