After nearly three weeks of being tailed intensely by the paparazzi, Raymond Lam (林峯) finally announced on February 6 that he is indeed dating his “BB” – 19-year-old Karena Ng (吳千語).
The Hong Kong paparazzi has been tracking Raymond and Karena’s romance ever since the filming of Raymond Wong’s (黃百鳴) romantic comedy film, Love is…Pyjamas <男人如衣服> last year. In January 2013, after winning JSG’s Most Popular Male Singer, Raymond thanked his family and a mysterious “BB,” which prompted the paparazzi to do a widespread pursuit on Raymond’s love life.
Raymond finally confirmed his dating rumors with Karena BB this past Wednesday, stating, “All along, I did not explain things non-related to my job. However, recent news reports have affected the people that I love, including her and her family. As a man, I need to protect her. I don’t want a good girl, someone who I cherish very much, to suffer any misunderstandings caused by external influences. I am only doing what a man should do.”
Currently filming for Huan Tian Xi Di Qiao Yuan Jia <欢天喜地俏冤家> in mainland China, Karena stated through her manager, Carmen, that she will personally address the media’s questions once she returns to Hong Kong.
Asked if Karena had known beforehand about Raymond’s intentions in making their relationship public, Carmen said, “She has never mentioned it. She is very calm right now.”
Many of Raymond’s fans have been bashing Karena on her Weibo, exclaiming that Raymond is too good for her. Carmen said, “[The bashing] has been going on for a while. She is feeling fine now. She actually hopes that everyone will spare her family, although she understands that as an artist, she will eventually have to face [the negativity].”
Asked if Karena will return to Hong Kong by Lunar New Year, Carmen expressed that she is uncertain.
Karena Breaks Up with Ellen Wong’s Son
Raymond and Karena first met on the set of Love is…Pyjamas last April. A source close to the pair disclosed, “When they were filming in Hangzhou, Raymond and Karena were seen together all the time. Raymond often invited her over for dinner and karaoke, but at the time, Karena had a boyfriend, Chester Lim (林建億), so she did not react to Raymond’s pursuits. She merely treated him as a friend.”
Karena eventually gave in to Raymond’s persistent chase and the pair began dating a few months later. An insider revealed that Karena and Chester, son of former Miss Hong Kong Ellen Wong (王愛倫), had already been dating since Karena’s modeling days four years ago. “The two of them were really sweet together, but things began to change when a magazine published photos of Raymond and Karena dining together a few months back. Chester asked Karena if Raymond was trying to pursue her, but she denied it. Chester noticed Karena was getting more and more mysterious and whenever the two of them were together, Karena’s phone would always be ringing, but she wouldn’t do anything about it. The relationship then progressed to the point where Karena would not answer or respond to Chester’s calls and texts. Karena then asked Chester for a breakup in a later text message. I’ve never seen Chester cry so hard in my life. He is still feeling unstable.”
