Mandopop singer and song-writer David Tao has admitted he has cheated on his wife.

Tao explained his affair with Yang Ziqing during a press conference:

"I met Ms Yang in 2010 and we had a relationship. After I got married, we just texted each other sometimes. And we only met once. We met in Chengdu on June 19, which is the main reason behind my infidelity."

The singer apologized to his wife Penny and his family for his wrongdoing and thanked them for forgiving him.

Tao is a Golden Melody Award winner and is well known for creating a crossover genre of R&B and hard rock tunes which has now become his signature style and for having popularized R&B in the Mandopop industry.

David Tao and his wife Penny Jiang got married in July last year.
