Chapter 93 Tarnished Reputation
“Am I right?” Gianna’s voice dripped with sarcasm through the receiver.
Levi felt no remorse whatsoever. “You currently have no capacity to stand up to Simon. I’m doing this for your own good.”
“Put away your hypocrisy. If he dares to come after me, let him!”
The call abruptly ended, and Levi stared at the darkening screen, a hint of rejected anger flickering in his eyes.
“Stupid woman! Let’s see how you handle it when the time comes!” He thought to himself. His assistant in the front seat then reported, “Mr. Rivera, Jason has sent a message. He says are some issues with the Flenning project, and he needs you to come in person.”
Levi closed his eyes briefly, controlling his irritation. “Understood. Book the earliest flight.”
The business with Flenning was equally important, which was why he had put Jason in charge there.
Lately, the company’s affairs had become more entangled, clearly busier than when Gianna was
Levi decided to let Gianna go through some trials, and when she had nothing left, it would be much easier for her to accept his olive branch and return to work for Rivera Group.
After ending the call, Gianna turned around to find Jonathan holding back Thiago, preventing him from rushing over to interrupt. When the call was finished, Jonathan released his grip. “Why did you stop me just now? I wanted to help Gianna scold that scumbag!” Thiago protested.
your temper acting up again?”
Jonathan’s eyes issued a warning, causing Thiago to immediately relent.
Gianna had been feeling down after the phone call, but seeing this scene dispelled her gloom. How could it be that she was up against the whole world? She had her most important family and friends behind her.
With them around, it was as if she had the whole world.
Gianna chuckled and said, “Jonathan, be more gentle. Thiago’s arm is just starting to get better.”
“You’re right! How could you be so rough with your beloved little brother? I’ll go tattle to Chaim and Grandpa!” Thiago, finding support from someone, launched a counterattack.
“I didn’t touch that arm of yours.” Jonathan calmly took a seat. “If it’s really bothering you, call the family doctor over. I’ll cover the expenses.”
Thiago pulled Gianna over. “Gianna, reason with him.”
Gianna quickly made an excuse to retreat upstairs. “I’m going to bed. I have a pile of things to do
The next morning, Kaylee called.
“Darling! The internet is in chaos right now!”
Gianna was well aware of the situation and sighed, “Is the entire Internet turning against me?”
Chapter 93 Tarnished Reputation
Kaylee was frantic. “It’s not just turning against you. It’s full–blown online hatred now!
“I asked Kelly to help you take down the posts, but she said she couldn’t. Deleting comments and such isn’t having any effect!”
Gianna hung up the phone and hurriedly checked the situation.
Her name had once again become the number one trending topic across the entire internet.
An influencer publicly called out Gianna, accusing her of having an affair with Simon while she was still married to Levi and using her connections with the CEO of the Empyrean Group to land the role of general manager,
Beneath the accusation were supposed pieces of evidence. I was a picture of Gianna and Thiago driving home together before her divorce and a photo of Gianna meeting Chaim at a coffee shop in Dubai.
After this, an individual claiming to be a former schoolmate of Gianna’s posted a video in which Gianna’s face was blurred out. There were some words stated. [She was known as the school’s bully. We didn’t even have to secretly record such videos. There are plenty of them!]
These accusations of infidelity within marriage, combined with allegations of schoolyard bullying, triggered a storm of sensitive keywords online.
The entire Internet erupted in outrage.
[So this is the real Gianna’s true face!]
[She had no power or influence and still managed to capture the attention of a tycoon, and then she even cheated on him during their marriage!]
[Why couldn’t she choose someone else? She had to mess around with my idol, Simon!]
[I can’t believe Simon would stoop to this level. It’s completely unexpected!]
[Anyone who bullied their classmates in school can’t be a good person!]
[Dig deeper! Keep digging!]
Hashtags, “Scheming Gianna“, “Malicious Gianna“, were both trending at the top of the charts.
Even the stock market was affected by appointing a person with such notorious misdeeds, causing it to fall by more than ten percentage points in a row.
Thiago and Jonathan also came to her room, clearly aware of the trending situation.
“Gianna, are you okay?”
Thiago approached and gently smoothed Gianna’s hair.
“Thiago, I’m sorry you’re being dragged into this mess,” Gianna apologized.
“I have plenty of loyal fans. They won’t care about these petty things,” Thiago reassured her.
“I could help you delete all these posts, but the commption would attract the attention of the cybersecurity department,” Jonathan added calmly.
“No need, Jonathan. Even if we delete them, more will come. This is a planned attack,” Gianna sighed.
Was this what Levi meant by Simon mobilizing the entertainment industry for revenge? It seemed to have a greater impact than previous incidents.
“Chaim just called and said the next flight is arriving soon. He wants you to stay home for a few days and avoid going to the company for now. Any business matters, let Erwin handle them first.”
