Alan Tam recently dismissed rumours saying that it was TVB's financial issues that led to the dismissal of its 50 employees.

 

Previously, it was rumoured that the company has loss a significant amount of money after covering the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, and had to let go of 50 of its staff to resize. It was also speculated that more retrenchment will follow.

 

According to Singtao Daily, the singer, who attended a bakery opening ceremony in Macau recently, said that though he does not have the details about the layoffs, he refused to believe that TVB lost a lot of money after the World Cup.

 

"We paid our own airfares to Brazil. We didn't use much of the company's fund," said Alan, who also took part in the programme.

 

Said Alan, the company also invited him to participate in a travelling programme with Nat Chan and Bennett Pang in Australia after hearing that he would be holding a concert in the country, and did not pay him any remuneration for his appearance.

 

"The company wanted to add more appeal to the programme, but I wasn't paid for it."

 

He also shared the same opinion with Eric Tsang, who believed that the layoff has nothing to do with the company's financial state.

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.

 

This isn't the first time GEM was criticised for being arrogant. Last year, veteran singer Jenny Tseng slammed the singer for ignoring her at a public event.

Jacky joked that he helped people to 'pok', while Alan Tam promised only for the guest of this concert and said: "I need to have 4 concert tickets first and how pitiful is that."  Alan Tam praised Jacky who was a good joker and Jacky responded seriously: "It is not a joke but a fact....Other than the 4 concert tickets in exchange and the rest is facts."
