Noel Leung Denies Extramarital Affair Rumors
Earlier, former Miss Hong Kong second runner-up, Noel Leung (梁小冰), was accused of cheating on husband, Gary Chan (陳嘉輝), with restaurateur, Brian Wong (王志海). In a telephone interview, Noel treated the relevant reports as a joke, stressing that they were only fellow classmates. Gary Chan replied through a text message that both he and Noel possessed mutual trust in each other.
Noel possessed a good wife and motherly image. Thus, when the extramarital affair rumors surfaced, many artists were shocked. When the rumors surfaced initially, Noel had expressed through her manager that she will not respond. Yesterday, she broke her silence and said, “I’m very surprised! In my 22-year career, this was the first time I graced tabloid covers!” She explained that she was not hiding after the news broke, but was busy and unable to respond earlier.
Noel realized that she was photographed by tabloid photographers earlier, but did not consider that the published story would accuse her of having an extramarital affair with Brian Wong. Noel explained that Brian was a fellow classmate, “We went to the same class. All the students get along very well. Brian’s restaurant in the Central district is the place where we often gather together.”
Noel stressed that the allegations claiming that she and Brian had entered the storage room together were false. Aside from Brian, other classmates also dropped her off at home. Noel claimed that shes never exchanged flirtatious messages with Brian on Weibo. Regarding Brian’s messages referencing “Little Bing,” Noel claimed that she never read his Weibo. “I do not know if he did write about me or not.” Despite her rumors with Brian, Noel said that she will not end her friendship with Brian. Next month, the pair will continue to attend class together.
Noel added, “I’m a very warm person. In my 22-year career, I have never had this kind of rumor. This proves that I will not act inappropriately. I feel that linking arms and hugging are normal friendly behavior, but you may feel surprised.” Noel noted that she had a mutual understanding with her husband, Gary Chan.
