Hong Kong actor Hawick Lau and Chinese actress Yang Mi recently announced their divorce after almost five years of marriage. Hawick's father, veteran actor Lau Dan, was asked to comment on the matter during a filming session, to which he reported that both parties are doing fine.
When asked if his son sought his advice, Lau Dan revealed that he only found out about the divorce after they had already made the decision to split, but he respects their decision. "I'm sure they both had their reasons," he said. "Everything is fine, thank you for your concern."
Lau Dan also denied the rumours of Hawick cheating on Yang Mi during their marriage. "A lot of people seem to be talking about this, but the fact is they are doing well," he said.
However, the actor declined to reveal too much about his granddaughter, Hawick and Yang Mi's daughter nicknamed "Little Glutinous Rice", and would only say that, like everyone else, she is doing fine.
