Career[edit]

Quan joined the then-SBC in 1992. In 1996, she was fired by TCS over a fight at a bowling alley and for driving without a valid license.[citation needed]

Quan joined SPH MediaWorks in 2000. When SPH MediaWorks merged with MediaCorp, she was transferred to MediaCorp, marking her return to the company after almost 9 years.

Controversy[edit]

In 1996, Quan was fined $1000 after a fight with a bowling alley assistant.[1]

In 2010, Quan was accused of abusing a taxi driver. It was alleged that she was angry that the taxi driver did not help with loading her luggage onto the taxi and throwing her forward while making a sharp turn. She supposedly alighted, kicked the car door and then kicked the taxi driver in the groin. She subsequently lock herself in the taxi and messed the taxi up.[2] She had hired Subhas Anandan to represent her after the incident.[3] She was charged with two counts of mischief and one count of using criminal force.[1]

On 29 December 2011, Quan Yi Feng was sentenced to 15 months probation in Court. Quan was charged with damaging a taxi meter, pulling out the receipt printer of a cab and spilling water on the receipt printer. Two other charges – of kicking the right passenger door of the taxi, and pushing and attempting to kick the 53-year-old cabbie – were also been taken into consideration.

She has to attend psychological therapy and counselling sessions as part of her probation.[4]

In July 2013, Quan had a brush with the law once again when she knocked down a pedestrian at a crossing. Quan pleaded guilty to one count of inconsiderate driving under the Road Traffic Act and was fined S$800 and banned from driving for three months.[5]

Personal life[edit]

Quan married former MediaCorp actor Peter Yu in 1998 after meeting while filming Happy Travel Agency.[6] They have a daughter, Eleanor Lee , born in 1999. Quan and Yu divorced on 3 January 2009 and share custody of their daughter.[7][8]
