Cantopop star Aaron Kwok responded to rumours that he has been dating young models, after he was found to be following 18 of them on Instagram. These international models hail from China, Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Malaysia and even America.
Rumour has it that his new hobby after his break-up with Hong Kong-based model Lynn Hung is to flirt with these models in secret. He was even said to have complimented some of them for their acting and singing talent, and even made filming visits. Some even said that he brought them home before.
Aaron finally made a response recently on Weibo: 'Things are made worse and worse. Everything is utterly ridiculous and absurd.'
His manager said: 'The world is chaotic enough, we should look at the positive side of things.'
Hong Kong actor Nicholas Tse recently travelled to France to film his new food variety show called 12 'Feng' Taste. During the recording, the 33-year-old attended a garden party held at one of Vicki Zhao's wineries.
From the photos, the dining table was decorated with fresh flowers and the company appeared to have enjoyed the wine tasting and delicious food.
Although fans were expecting a reunion between Nicholas and Chinese diva Faye Wong, who was also in Paris at that time, the actor reportedly turned down a dinner invitation with Vicki and his ex-lover, in consideration of the feelings of his former wife Cecilia Cheung.
Some netizens expressed their disappointment on social media, saying, 'It would be perfect if Faye was in the photo!'

The film BEIJING LOVE STORY premiere took place yesterday. Lead actor and actress Tony Leung Ka Fai and Carina Lau Ka Ling attended. This film made over 400 million yuan RMB at the box office with its Mainland release. Lau Ka Ling said that the Hong Kong box office would not add to her pressure. She liked this film because it touched her. In the film she and Leung Ka Fai had many passionate scenes, which she joked were child's play.
Ka Ling has not seen Leung Ka Fai and her daughters' swimsuit photos online, but the father and daughter relationship was very intimate because the daughter was the father's love in previous life. When she and Tony Leung Chiu Wai went on vacation would they take swimsuit photos? Ka Ling said that she did not mind but Wai Jai did. They would take photos because mobile phones were convenient for pictures. Yet Wai Jai was responsible for taking photos. Was she afraid of losing her phone and leaking out her secrets? She said that they were only swimsuit photos, as long as they looked pretty she was fine. Wai Jai revealed that Wai ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The horror film SECOND COMING 3D (CHUNG SUN 3D) two nights ago held its premiere. Lead actress Maggie Siu Mei Kei was absent due to illness. Star Susan Shaw Yam Yam came with support from her mother, sister and daughter as well as friend Nora Miao (Miu Ho Sau); lead actor Kenny Wong Tak Bun and Don Li Yat Long also attended.
Li Yat Long recently has focused on his Mainland career but he decided to return to the Hong Kong music scene. He formed a record company and in the middle of the year he will release a record, for which he turned down many film offers. He hoped the record will profit, otherwise he will suffer losses. Thus he was at a point of no return.
Shaw Yam Yam worked on a 3D film for the first time and felt very excited. She believed that she was trying to adjust to the production environment like a new comer. Because a 3D film had to shoot the same scene many times, she did not dare to improvise as she was afraid that she would forget what she did. In the film she played someone who could see the dead. She not only saw ghosts but also had car chases, which was very exciting. Wong Tak Bun said that this film was a category III ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

He may have made his showbiz debut as a singer with his single with Maple Hui, "A Modern Love Story" in 1991, but Julian Cheung now prefers acting over singing.
According to On CC, the 42-year-old actor, who went on a radio interview recently, revealed that he would prefer to be called an actor rather than a singer, and explained that life as a singer is much more difficult.
"Every singer has his or her own fortune when it comes to the industry. You have to be able to write songs of various genres for people to listen. You are paid more to be an actor though," said the actor.
When asked to choose between singing, his film career, or his TV career, Julian chose the latter, saying that he would like to develop his career in the TV industry.
The "Triumph In The Skies II" actor assured fans that he would continue to sing and release more albums.
Meanwhile, Singtao reported that Julian will be busy filming two movies for the first half of this year; the "Pretty Woman"-inspired movie with Chrissie Chau tentatively titled "Hundred Billion Demons Fall For Me" – which will begin filming in April, and the movie adaptation of his aviation series, "Triumph In The Skies", which will begin production in May.

The Hong Kong singer likens his relationship with his manager to a divorce in a marriage
Hong Kong singer Alex To was recently in the media spotlight after his owing him a large sum of money.
His manager Yao Fengqun said that he also terminated his contract, and plans to recover NT20 million (S$830,000) from him, which included expenses from last year's album, concert and living expenses.
Alex finally spoke up about the incident when he was queried by reporters yesterday, after he and his wife Ice were spotted at a restaurant.
Using a divorce analogy to describe the worsening relations between him and Fengqun, Alex said: 'A couple marries because of love, and separates because of disagreements and understanding. Both parties will be upset during a divorce, and things only worsen when the other party does not accept the 'divorce'.'
'I'm very upset,' he said of his manager's accusations. 'But I don't wish to say anything to hurt him now. He has his point of view, and no matter how exaggerated it may be, I'll leave it to the lawyers to deal with it.'
He appeared to be visibly affected, and was tearing up as he spoke to reporters.
Alex also said that he does not owe Fengqun any money, and that when he terminated his contract, he followed all the necessary rules and procedures. It was understood that both parties stopped working together since January 17, with the main reason cited as an investment problem last year, and differing views from both parties.
Fengqun had hinted to the media earlier that Alex could not sing live due to a problem with his voice, and regarding this, Alex said that he was 'most ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The Taiwanese host angered fans for asking the You Who Came From The Star actor a sensitive question
After Korean star Kim Soo Hyun rose to fame for his recent drama, You Who Came From The Star, he has been invited to several TV programmes in China, including Jiangsu TV's popular variety show Super Brain.
Soo Hyun was said to have earned NT$15 million (approximately S$620,000) for his appearance.
At the recording of the show yesterday, another guest, Taiwanese host Matilda Tao, teased him with a question that drove the audience mad with screaming. 'Why did you wear a towel when you were bathing in the drama?' she asked.
Faced with such a sensitive and awkward question, Soo Hyun blushed, and replied: 'If I don't wear it, the scene would not be broadcasted!'
Her embarrassing question enraged Soo Hyun's fans, who called her names online, branding her as 'indecent' and even expressed their hate for her.
In response to the criticisms, Matilda said that the producers had wanted her to interact with Soo Hyun during the programme. 'My question is related to the drama, and I did not mean to 'take advantage' of him,' she said.
South Korean actor Kim Soo Hyun arrived in Nanjing, China via a chartered flight last Saturday, for the programme recording of Jiangsu TV's popular variety show Super Brain. According to media reports, the 26-year-old raked in NT$15 million (approximately S$620,000) for his appearance.
Jiangsu TV reportedly spent NT$29.6 million (S$1.24 million) in total, to invite the actor, whose popularity skyrocketed after the success of You Who Came From The Stars, to join the eight-hour recording.
Tickets to the show were said to be sold for as much as NT$24,000 (S$1000) per ticket in the black market. At the programme recording, 600 security guards were hired to maintain order and all attendees had to go through three rounds of checks before entering the studio.
Fans of 'Do Min Joon' (Soo Hyun's character in the drama) burst out in screams when the actor showed up in a suave black suit and presented flowers to the female guests, Matilda Tao and Cecilia Cheung.
Meanwhile, Soo Hyun's fan-meet in Taipei on Mar 22 has also sold out.

Amidst the buzz of Taiwanese singer Annie Yi's relationship with an actor 10 years her junior, word spread that her ex-husband, Taiwanese singer Harlem Yu, is also following suit. He is said to be dating 22-year-old Chinese singer Momo Wu, who is 30 years younger than him.
Momo rose to fame after participating in the first season of The Voice of China competition in 2012, in which she emerged as the runner-up.
Impressed by her non-mainstream music style, Harlem '" who was one of the four judges at the competition '" decided to mentor her, and the pair even filmed a music video together. Rumours about their relationship then began to spread.
Although Momo transformed from an ordinary undergraduate to a celebrity overnight, her alternative style and voice has raised many eyebrows. But Harlem supported her, even publicly declaring: 'Momo is my most satisfied piece of work.'
A few days ago, Momo posted up a scenery photo and announced on Weibo: 'From today onwards, we will work hand in hand, walk to every corner on earth and discover all its beauty.'
Some sharp-eyed netizens noticed that the place in the photo is Danshui Fisherman's Wharf in Taiwan, which brought Taiwanese singer Harlem to mind. 'So is it Harlem Yu?' they commented.
