Fifty-seven-year-old martial arts star, Gordon Liu (劉家輝) suffered from a stroke in August last year and resulted in paralysis in one side of his body. Gordon reportedly entered into depression and refused visits from his friends and colleagues. After a year of treatment, Gordon has recovered gradually and is currently undergoing physical therapy. According to his friends’ statements, Gordon hopes to stand up again and return to filming dramas.
Gordon Liu’s Confidence Increases
Gordon was spotted dining with his friends earlier. Wearing a cap and a mask, Gordon sat in a wheelchair while his friend pushed him into a café. It was obvious that he had lost much weight but he appeared to be in a better spirit than before. Since admitting into a nursing home in Kowloon, Gordon only allowed his close friends to visit him.
Amy Fan (樊亦敏) who has visited Gordon revealed that he made progressive improvement since receiving the physical therapy and he is also able to stand up now. Amy also disclosed that Gordon was motivated after Eric Tsang’s (曾志偉) visit. After Gordon received an iPad from Eric, Gordon has been watching his old films and listening to songs every day. He is also encouraged by Eric’s concern and is trying his best to receive treatment.
Gordon’s assistant, Eva, also revealed that Gordon was able to walk for a short distance with the assistance of others. Gordon hopes to resumes his work once he has fully recovered.
Divorce Due to Differences in Personalities?
Earlier, Gordon’s second wife, who is from Thailand, reportedly instigated their 20-year-old son and 17-year-old daughter to demand a monthly household allowance of $7,000 HKD from Gordon when he was ill. Mrs. Liu also eyed Gordon’s savings and a property worth $7.5 million HKD. Gordon reportedly decided to divorce his wife after she constantly demanded money from him. Currently in Thailand, Gordon’s wife broke her silence and denied allegations that she was after his money.
Mrs. Liu insisted that they separated due to differences in personalities. “In 1991, I registered marriage with Gordon in Hong Kong. After that, we had a son and a daughter. It’s a pity that after giving birth to my daughter, I realized that we have different personalities. He likes to drink and is flirtatious. All along, I relied on my faith and the mindset that I will raise my children to maintain this marriage. In 2009 that Gordon decided to send our son to Singapore to further his studies. I was also thinking if I should start all over again. Under the arrangement by Gordon, I signed on the divorce papers. I told him that I was willing to divorce with him, but I wanted half of his property to be transferred under my son’s name. I hope that it will be a form of guarantee for my children and after that, I went to Thailand to stay.”
When pressed further as to whether she was officially divorced from Gordon, Mrs. Liu said that she did not know, as Gordon had changed his lawyer without notifying her.
Mrs. Liu Denies Eyeing Gordon’s Money
When asked if she was demanding money from Gordon, Mrs. Liu replied, “After he got a stroke, I immediately returned to Hong Kong from Thailand to take care of him. As my income is not that good, I need to borrow $20,000 HKD of living expenses from my friends and relatives. When I signed on the divorce papers, I did not request for one cent at all. So, when was I greedy? I only borrowed $30,000 HKD from Gordon when my business was not doing well two years ago. At that time, Gordon did not suffer from the stroke yet. After he got a stroke, I never asked a single cent from him and never chased him to transfer his property to our name.”
Gordon’s son, Kris, also disclosed that he had decided to stop his studies for a year to help relieve his father’s financial burden. He currently works as a waiter. Kris hopes to be able to take care of his father.
Thai Wife and Children Prohibited From Visiting Gordon
Mrs. Liu admitted that she had thought of sending Gordon to Thailand so that it would be more convenient for her to take care of him. She further revealed that a person had forbidden her to send Gordon to Thailand. “Someone had intervened last month. My children and I were prohibited from seeing Gordon. In addition, there was news that Gordon was estranged from his family and we were after his assets. I feel that there is a need to clarify all these rumors.”
Gordon’s son also shared that he had tried his means to visit Gordon, but was always refused by nurses. Mrs. Liu hoped that her children can reunite with Gordon and they wanted to know the state of his condition. Asked who had been stopping them from visiting Gordon, Mrs. Liu declined to name the person.
Gordon’s Liu Assistant: “Gordon Decides Who He Wants to See”
Gordon Liu’s assistant, Eva, dismissed Mrs. Liu’s claims that someone had intervened to separate Gordon from his family. Eva said, “It’s entirely Gordon that decides who he wants to see and who he does not want to see. No one is doing anything to manipulate him. Earlier, Jamie Luk (陸劍明), Bryan Leung (梁家仁), and Eric Tsang (曾志偉) visited him. Gordon Liu only wants to recover from his illness. We hope that his family can let him recuperate in peace. When he recovers, he will step forward and explain everything.”
