The Hong Kong actor, who recently reconciled with Faye Wong, still believes in love


In a recent interview, Hong Kong celebrity Nicholas Tse, who recently reunited with Chinese diva Faye Wong after 11 years, said that he still 'believes in and seeks love'. The 34-year-old also expressed his wish for his lover to be his life companion. 'I am the kind of person who believes in fairy-tale romances,' he added.

After news of the reconciliation broke, Nicholas attended events in Beijing and Sichuan, but did not comment on his relationship status. However, the singer-actor's appearance at the 64th anniversary celebration of Beijing Bureau of Radio, Film and Television was cancelled yesterday, as the organiser was concerned that media attention would be diverted.

According to Hong Kong media reports, the songstress is believed to have purchased new furniture for her Beijing apartment, where she was photographed behaving intimately with Nicholas, during her recent shopping trip to IKEA.

While speaking at an interview last week, Faye hinted that her life is 'pretty good' at the moment. 'There's nothing particularly upsetting. The ideal situation is to live without regrets of the past or worry for the future,' she said.

A Chinese programme, which was scheduled to feature Qin Han's proposal to Annie Yi, was banned from airing


Taiwanese artiste Annie Yi has reportedly been blacklisted by Chinese broadcasters, following her show of support for the Southern Weekly incident, a conflict between the newspaper and Propaganda Department of Guangdong Province regarding press freedom last year.

Last Saturday, an episode of Chinese variety show Happy Camp, which was supposed to feature Chinese actor Qin Han's proposal to Annie, was allegedly banned from airing. Previously, the singer-actress' parts in China's Got Talent were edited out after she was dropped from the programme last year.

Responding to queries on Happy Camp, Hunan TV explained in a Weibo post that the broadcast of a programme is dependent on the channel's schedule. Although the statement dismissed rumours that Happy Camp has ended its run, it did not make any mention of Annie's role in the station's decision to cancel the broadcast.

Unaware that the programme did not air on Saturday night, Qin Han wrote on Weibo: 'Having fried chicken with beer. It's a pity that I can't watch Happy Camp in Korea.'

Shortly after, Annie replied to the post: 'I can't watch [the show] in Taipei too. Let's watch it together when you are back, Qin oppa.' However, the singer-actress was found to have deleted her comment after learning that the programme was not aired.

Hong Kong celebrity couple Cecilia Cheung and Nicholas Tse went separate ways in 2011 and their sons Lucas Tse, 7, and Quintus Tse, 4, have been living with their mother since then.

Lately, it was revealed on Cecilia's Weibo by a netizen that Nicholas chooses work and social life over spending time with Lucas and Quintus even though Cecilia does not object to his visits.

Cecilia feels that children from a broken family should be showered with even more love, but she has given up on Nicholas and said, 'A man like this is not worth loving.'

Last Saturday, her ex-manager, Tiffany Chen, received a call from the actress who cried and told her she felt her sons were deprived of their father's love.

'I talked to Cecilia and she wept. I asked if it was because she still had feelings for Nicholas, she said no and shared it was because she felt sad for her sons. Their father does not care about them and they rarely met this year. She told him he was always welcome to visit but he finds excuses with work and do not spend time with them,' Tiffany shared.

Following reports of Nicholas and former lover Faye Wong's reconciliation, Tiffany also shared on Weibo: 'Their reconciliation does not concern me, but all of a sudden, I feel so sad for Cecilia and her sons'.

Cecilia was reportedly hospitalised recently due to acute gastroenteritis while filming reality show Star To My House and was suspected to be due to the shock of the reconciliation news.

As for Nicholas, he attended activities as scheduled but did not respond to those speculations. He was spotted wearing a Buddhist beaded bracelet which he previously claimed was 'from a friend' but netizens guessed it was from Faye, who is a Buddhist.

Aaron Yan reportedly claimed that Fahrenheit went their separate ways due to internal conflict


Taiwanese singer-actor Aaron Yan revealed in a recent interview that he only keeps in touch with former Fahrenheit groupmate Wu Chun these days because the latter truly treats him as a buddy, and that he is 'no longer friends' with Jiro Wang and Calvin Chen, reported Taiwanese media.

During the interview, Aaron also exposed the real reason behind Fahrenheit's split in 2011. The 27-year-old allegedly claimed that Jiro and Wu Chun's 'fight' to be the group's leader caused internal conflict which eventually led to the latter's departure.

Back then, Wu Chun was touted as the most outstanding member in terms of looks and popularity, a situation which made Aaron feel sidelined. As the youngest member in the group, the Fall in Love with Me star felt neglected when his bandmates expressed their wish to shed the 'idol image'.

'Did they consider my feelings? Did they think about how am I going to survive [in the industry]?' Aaron cried.

Shocked by his revelations, some fans harshly criticised the singer-actor for his comments. On Sep 22, the heartthrob addressed the controversy with a Facebook post.

He wrote: 'Will you continue banging on a wall after getting hurt from knocking on it for years? All emotional ties, including family, romance, friendship or even relationships with your pets, need to be managed and maintained. If you are the only one taking initiative, it would be like banging on a wall.'

His post left die-hard Fahrenheit fans disappointed, with some slamming him for playing victim. 'I wasn't trying to point fingers. If I sounded like I was, that is your own interpretation. Don't take my words out of context,' Aaron commented in response.
