TAIPEI - A Taipei confinement hotel near Jay Chou's house is in the spotlight with news that he booked its entire sixth floor for his wife's confinement.

Apple Daily Taiwan ran pictures of the luxurious Ma Cherie Post Partum Center at Jinsan South Road, where it said model-actress Hannah Quinlivan is recuperating following the birth of their daughter on July 10.

It printed a picture of what it said was Quinlivan's car in the basement carpark, but the centre denied "such a new mother" had checked in.

The centre also denied claims that all six rooms of the floor were gradually emptied out and a woman was moved out of the floor to make way for Quinlivan and her child.

Chou's label JVR Music also denied that a whole floor was booked by the singer.

 

But, if true, taking up the whole floor will cost Chou about NT$2.2 million (S$96,800) for a month, during which his wife will enjoy six meals a day with dishes such as five-grain rice, oyster sauce pig trotters and sesame oil pig liver soup, Apple said.

Chou obviously wanted the privacy and the strict access the centre afforded, it added. Its proximity to his home also allows him to drop by easily for visits.

Meanwhile, the singer appeared on TV last Friday for the first time as a judge on Zhejiang TV's talent show The Voice Of China.

The show's season 4 kick-off scored the programme's highest ratings ever for a season premiere, chalking up nationwide average ratings of 2.72 per cent, according to monitoring firm CSM.

Chou, who is taking a break from work, taped the show last month.
