A few weeks after the news of Chinese actress Yang Mi's divorce from her husband of five years, Hong Kong actor Hawick Lau, was made public, reports that Nicholas Tse was the cause of their divorce were published.
According to the reports, Nicholas planned to break up with his girlfriend, Chinese singer Faye Wong, in March this year, before going public with his relationship with Yang Mi.
In earlier interviews, Yang Mi had admitted that Nicholas was her idol. The duo had also guested at the same awards ceremony as special guests in December last year, shortly before news of Yang Mi’s divorce was released.
However, when Nicholas was asked about the reports during an event, he had a strong answer for the media.
“(You must be) crazy! We (Faye and Nicholas) are doing very well, even if you don’t believe so,” he said. The actor also shared that he was just friends with Yang Mi. Though the actress had shared her support for his Chef Nic programme, the two of them rarely meet up. He then went on to reveal that the last time they had met up was for the awards ceremony last year.
“I really don’t know how such a rumour came about,” he said.
