Pop singer Man Wenjun was released yesterday afternoon after spending 14 days at a detention center for drug use.

The 40-year-old was collected by staff from Taihe Rye Music, the company he is currently contracted to, in the early afternoon, Sohu.com quoted Taihe Rye CEO Song Ke as saying.

Man is "with his family", Song said.

The singer's wife Li Li is still being held in the capital's Changying detention center for supplying drugs. The couple was taken from a nightclub by police along with at least 10 others on May 19. The group was believed to have been celebrating Li's birthday.

The nightclub, named Coco Banana, was told to close for six months.

Man had a public image as a responsible man with a love of charity work. He is expected to make a public apology, according to Liu Qun, a division chief with Taihe Rye.

The timing of the apology is not known because Man "needs some rest first and foremost", Song said.

Man, who shot to fame with the 1996 hit I Understand You All the Time, has been a brand ambassador for the China Foundation for Children with Brain Paralysis since 2007.

An unnamed drug dealer was cited by the China Entertainment Net as saying that the couple was frequent drug users. The dealer said they bought 2.5 grams of heroin from him on the morning of Li's birthday.
