Bosco Wong and Myolie Wu said to have called it quits

By spcnet.tv on March 31st, 2010 | Chinese Entertainment, newsfeed

Are they on or are they off? Hong Kong TVB actors Myolie Wu and Bosco Wong are rumoured to have called it quits after a five-year underground romantic relationship yesterday when salacious photos of Bosco and a Canadian pageant queen surfaced a few days ago.

The on-off pair have been rumoured to be an item since five years ago despite vehement protestations and their run-off-the-mill “we’re just friends” explanations. Earlier this month, incriminating photos of Bosco and Elva Ni, a Miss Chinese International 2006 contestant, surfaced. These photos were released by the latter herself.

According to Hong Kong news, the 30-year-old Myolie flew into a rage and bombarded Bosco with a string of text messages when she returned to Hong Kong yesterday. The incensed actress reportedly ended their relationship and moved out of their shared living quarters.

At the filming location of his upcoming TVB series, Mind Reading Detective, Bosco did not appear affected by the ongoing buzz and his rumoured breakup with Myolie. He reiterated that it was unnecessary to bother about such misleading reports and expressed “my relationship with Myolie will not change.”

“I have not read on these reports and there is no need to do so. Is it unnecessary to read about these misleading reports.”

When reporters asked if he and Elva are acquaintances, he said, “I have not seen her in Hong Kong.”

Ronald Cheng believes ex-wife Charlene Choi didn’t stray

By spcnet.tv on March 31st, 2010 | Chinese Entertainment, newsfeed

Rumours of a third party being responsible for their divorce have been denied by Hong Kong stars Ronald Cheng and Charlene Choi ever since they announced their decision to separate after four years of marriage at a joint press conference last Saturday.

Reports claim that Charlene, also known as Ah Sa by fans, had strayed from him to be with a wealthy businessman.

“I don’t believe Ah Sa’s such a person,” said singer-actor Ronald.

The 38-year-old, who won a Best Actor award the previous day in Chengdu, looked visibly haggard when he spoke to reporters for the first time at a promotional event for his new movie Just Another Pandora’s Box in Beijing’s Marriot Hotel, on Monday.

He added, “We’ve said there isn’t a third party and we hope everyone can give us some space. Something new comes up every day and I don’t want all these untrue reports anymore.”

Charlene, 27, was also spotted in a daze while at a rehearsal for the upcoming Twins concert. When asked about the wealthy Shanghai man she’s allegedly seeing, she replied sternly, “There’s no such thing. I don’t know such a person. It’s not true and time will prove it.”

Ronald and Charlene started dating in 2004 and secretly wedded in Los Angeles in Jan 2006. After their marriage certificate was exposed last Friday, they stepped out to face the rumours and the media at a press conference where both shed tears as they individually spoke.
