 Gaile Lok has recently addressed rumours of breakup with alleged New Zealander boyfriend, Cuz.


Previously, the Hong Kong media reported that the former Mrs. Leon Lai has called it quits with her new man, who is also her business partner in Bali.


Allegedly, the model decided to keep herself busy with work in Hong Kong in order to move on from her failed relationship.


However, according to Mingpao News, when asked to comment about the rumours recently, Gaile said, "I don't always talk about my relationship. It's in the past and I will not answer."


When asked if 'in the past' means that they have indeed broken up, which means that they had been dating, Gaile only replied, "No."


In regard to speculations that she deleted her Instagram because of the breakup, Gaile said that she only deleted it because she wanted her photos to be personal.


Asked if she would return to Bali, Gaile laughed and said, "I have many friends there, but it's rainy season there right now, so I haven't returned to Bali."


On the topic of a possible reunion with ex-husband Leon Lai, Gaile said, "I would like to focus on my jewellery business."

Alan Tam: Let GEM Tang grow and learn!

Friday November 21, 2014 Hong Kong







Hong Kong singer Alan Tam urges the media to give GEM Tang a chance to improve her interpersonal communication.


As reported on Mingpao News, the singer, who attended a press conference for the upcoming 37th Top Ten Chinese Gold Songs on 20 November, made such statement in reference to the controversy surrounding GEM Tang's supposed diva behaviour recently.


Previously, the songstress was accused of being an arrogant diva, not only for her expensive concert tickets that surpass even the likes of senior singers such as Miriam Yeung and Sammi Cheng, but for the attitude of her manager, who threatened to cancel her interview with the media at her recent press conference announcing her upcoming concert.


"It's just a misunderstanding," said Alan. "She is a very good singer, but she still has a long way to go in regard to her social skills."


"She is learning slowly. Give her the opportunity to grow and learn," he added. The singer also gave his two cents about the issue, saying that her management should also learn to be flexible, as she is a public figure who lives in the public eye.


"There are different approaches for different occasions," said Alan, adding that artistes should learn how to face the media and public.

While the 48th TVB Anniversary Gala ended with a good note on 19 November, with Wong Cho Lam's marriage proposal becoming the highlight of the event, it was revealed that the Hong Kong Communications Authority has received ten complaints from viewers about the annual TV event.


According to Mingpao News, most of the complaints were about the stars' dresses, as many of them wore low-cuts and backless dresses that showed off their legs and cleavage - deemed unsuitable for public TV.


Aside from criticisms about celebrities' style, many also complained about the show's content being dull and dreary, and was badly produced.


In regard to Wong Cho Lam's surprise proposal to Leanne Li - while it was a touching moment for the couple as well as the audience at the event, viewers cast their suspicion about the proposal's supposed 'surprise' nature.


Some said that Leanne has recently discussed about her wedding preparation in an interview with a wedding magazine prior to the event, and doubt that the proposal was surprising to her.

TAIPEI: Mandopop singer Jay Chou’s girlfriend Hannah Quinlivan offered up some interesting insights into their relationship when she appeared as a guest on a talkshow on Wednesday (Nov 19), reported Taiwan media.

Quinlivan was questioned relentlessly by hosts Dee Hsu and Kevin Tsai during the show, and revealed that she often addressed Chou by the nickname “Chou Chou”.

The 21-year-old model added that he loved to eat the desserts she prepared, while she would cut up the vegetables when he cooks for her.

Quinlivan also revealed that they first held hands when they were watching a horror film together. She said she was covering her eyes with her hands because she was afraid, when Chou gently took one of her hands and held it in his.

Hsu also asked her if Chou snored in his sleep. “I haven’t heard him snore before!” said Quinlivan, realising too late that she had perhaps said too much.  

“They are already going to get married. This is normal,” said Tsai, in a bid to rescue Quinlivan from the awkward situation. Chou had previously said that he intends to get married early next year, but declined to give more details.

BH Entertainment, Lee Byung Hun’s agency, stated on November 21, “We’re making the announcement en bloc because we’ve received many inquiries. Lee Byung Hun entered Korea on November 21 at 6 a.m. (KST). We hope there are no misunderstandings in regards to his schedule.”

We will be attending after becoming familiar with information related to witness attendance.”

In September, Lee Byung Hun was the victim of attempted blackmail of 5 billion won by Glam’s Da Hee and model A. Da Hee and model A were arrested and charged for making a joint threat and the first round of trial was held on October 16, during which Da Hee and model A partly admitted to making a threat but also made new claims.

About this, the police requested Lee Byung Hun as the witness and the second trial was to be held on November 11 but when Lee Byung Hun gave a notice to not attend the trial due to his stay in America, it was postponed to November 24. On that day, Lee ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
