Tavia Yeung Still Dating Lai Lok Yi?
Although Tavia Yeung’s (楊怡) growing “Pinnochio nose” was a hot topic of discussion recently, the growing controversy also boosted her popularity. Tavia’s fee at promotional events increased to $20,000 HKD per show recently, increasing her income significantly. As for her love life, since breaking up with businessman Nam Wai Kit (藍偉傑) in 2008, it was rumored that Tavia started dating TVB colleague, Lai Lok Yi (黎諾懿) in 2009.
Allegedly, Tavia’s mother did not approve of Lai Lok Yi since he had no money and no career. Tavia’s mother even reportedly attempted to break up the pair. However, Lai Lok Yi hoped to improve his relationship with Tavia’s mother. With more prominent roles in television series and more work, Mrs. Yeung’s impression of Lok Yi changed.
According to an inside source, “Over the last year, Lai Lok Yi would meet with Tavia’s mother occasionally. It was obvious that Lai Lok Yi and Mrs. Yeung’s relationship was not as bad as before. Also he won the grand prize in Hunan TV’s dance program <舞動奇迹 3>, boosting his popularity in China significantly. Tavia was extremely pleased.”
In late 2009, Tavia and Lai Lok Yi started dating. The paparazzi photographed the couple shopping for a camera in Tsim Sha Tsui.
In January 2010, Tavia was caught riding in Lai Lok Yi’s Subaru R2 car. Upon discovery of the paparazzi, Tavia lowered her cap and spoke on the phone, appearing to be extremely awkward.
With both Tavia’s career and love life going well, coupled with her mother’s acceptance of Lai Lok Li, perhaps it would not matter if Tavia’s “Pinnochio nose” continued to grow!
Excerpt from Sudden Weekly # 834
Jayne: Are Tavia and Lai Lok Yi such good friends that Lok Yi will even go shopping with her mother? Does Lok Yi have that much free time to spend with Tavia’s mother? If not dating Tavia, a normal guy would not hang out with a female friend’s mother in his spare time. He would probably spend time with his own mother instead.
It’s highly possible that Tavia and Lai Lok Yi are dating. Would love to see more of their dating photos. Surprisingly, not too many reporters follow up on this lead and hound Tavia about her rumors with Lai Lok Yi. Perhaps TVB’s orders to keep this romance hush-hush.
