Kenny Wee’s (黃浩) squabbles with Hong Kong’s influential celebrities have landed him in hot water.
Suki Chui’s (徐淑敏) husband, Kenny Wee, had disclosed that he has a video clip showing several artists taking drugs at his restaurant. Many of the involved artists remained quiet about the incident. Accompanied by her husband, Eason Chan (陳奕迅), Hilary Tsui (徐濠縈), finally held a conference to clarify the drug rumor, and filed a police report over the recent slander.
Sensing the time was right for a counter attack, a group of the involved artists, including Hilary, Josie Ho (何超儀), Grace Ip (葉佩雯), Sam Lee (李燦琛), and Convoy Chan (陳子聰) together with their lawyers, held a press conference to dispel the drug rumors, and announced that they have proceeded to take legal action.
Josie Ho Fights Back
During the press event, Josie Ho, issued a legal statement through her lawyer. In the issued statement, Josie denied the use of drugs, and she did not notice anyone taking drugs during the dinner gathering at Kenny’s restaurant. She declared there was no married actress french-kissing any actor at the dinner. Josie further stated that she has never, by herself, or through another party, threatened Kenny, as there was no reason to commit an unlawful act.
Josie’s statement continued with the speculation that Kenny Wee’s accusation stemmed from his anger towards the group when they complained about his restaurant, Taiwan Yiping Huadiao Chicken, overcharging its customers.
Josie also pointed out in her statement that Kenny has been delivering conflicting accounts of the incident. Contrary to his previous claims, Kenny now acknowledges that he has not seen the video clip, never seen any drug related incident in his restaurant, and never had the possession of a video clip.
Because of Kenny’s false accusation, Josie was drawn into the scandal and suffered from immense stress due to public criticism and discrimination. Josie’s lawyer advised that the negative publicity generated by Kenny’s false accusation is beyond “blatant defamation”; it can be considered a serious case of “injurious falsehood”. Kenny will be asked to promise not to repeat the accusations and fabricate similar accusations. If Kenny fails to comply within 48 hours, Josie’s lawyer will proceed with additional legal action without further warning.
Now is the Time
Josie explained why she did not respond over the drug rumors earlier. As an artist, there are bound to be frequent rumors and gossip against her. Usually, it is not necessary to respond. However, the drug scandal has gotten out of hand, and there are many malicious speculations against her. She felt that her family, friends and investors may also be affected. Several of Josie’s sponsors have been pressuring her to dispel the rumors.
“So here I am here today. I welcome my reporter friends to help in approaching the other party for the truth,” Josie said.
Hilary Fires Back
Josie’s friend, Hilary Tsui, who is also the main character in the drug scandal, also released a statement during the press conference. It declared that it was wrongly reported last Friday how Hilary was at a police station supplying information for investigation, however she was actually there to press charge.
It also said, after the event, her lawyer will be at the police station again to supply additional information for the party involved to be put on record. It further stated that “someone” has filed a false report to the police regarding the 17 artists attending dinner last year.
A legal warning letter has been sent to Kenny to silence his liberal mouth. The artists vowed to pursue further action if necessary.”
