Bo Xilai's Son Has Reputation for Partying

The son of Bo Xilai, the Communist official charged with corruption, and Gu Kailai, accused of murdering a British businessman, had a taste for luxury that caused trouble for his parents. At Oxford, Bo Guagua had a reputation as a poor student who threw lavish parties, including one that Jackie Chan attended, and with a fondness for European sports cars, horses, and first-class travel. The British man allegedly murdered by Gu was her son’s mentor and supposedly helped him get into his English school. But now Bo Guagua’s antics have become yet another liability for his parents. His father was forced to answer questions about how a government salary could support such a lifestyle.
