Fan Bingbing and Hugh Jackman arrive at the Australian premiere of ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ on May 16, 2014 in Melbourne, Australia. 

Shortly after Cui’s post, the country’s State Administration of Taxation released a statement saying: “If violations of tax laws and regulations are found, they will be handled in strict accordance with the law.”

Thus far, no violations have been found against Fan, but the Chinese government has remained quiet on the subject of her mysterious disappearance.

“The situation is that we all speak with one voice from top to bottom: that is that we don’t accept interviews and we have no comment,” said an official tasked with her case, reported the Times.

Reuters has been unable to contact Fan.

The star, who turned 37 on Sunday, is one of China’s highest-paid actresses with an estimated net worth of $40 million.

Since her disappearance, the actress has been dropped from a number of high-profile commercial relationships including with German accessories brand, Montblanc, a partnership which started in April.
