Tavia Yeung Still Dating Lai Lok Yi?

By on July 23, 2011

Tavia Yeung Still Dating Lai Lok Yi? thumbnail

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.

    1. jim says:

      support, but i am more prefer fungyi.

    2. Kidd says:

      Can anyone confirm whether she still has a boyfriend from outside the industry or not? Have they broken up?

      Then pairing together will be good. I think their look match.

      • Jayne says:

        At recent promotional events for “On Call 26 Hours,” Tavia claimed that she has been single and “dry” for a long time. Reporters suggested she have a fling with co-star, Him Law.

        I think Tavia did break up with former boyfriend, Nam Wai Kit. While they were together, there would be occasional paparazzi photos of the pair going shopping, going to the beach, etc. But no more photos lately for years.

        Tavia and Lai Lok Yi seem to be straight forward types who are not very eloquent in speech.

        • Kidd says:

          Thanks for the info. :)

          Iirc, Figaro Ceng has also accompany Ariel Lin’s mom before, but, they never dated (at least no tabloid news). Ariel’s now dating someone else.

          But, I do suspect that Figaro has feelings for Ariel. His little (or not so little) gestures show. But, they are indeed very close friends.

      • Kidd says:

        Ok, got the answer from the article liao.

    3. Vivien says:

      The report doesn’t make Tavia’s mum sounds good. It sounds like she cares about money and reputation.

    4. Funn Lim says:

      Did’t even know she is dating anyone, more so Lai Lok Yi. But isn’t he younger? Anyway both as boring.

    5. anya says:

      What make the reporter to think that they are still dating? The news kinda confused me. I followed Lai on Weibo, he usually forward Tavia’s posts and vice versa, but I think it’s just close friendship. However, from Yoyo Mung’s message to Lai on his birthday, I feel like he’s dating someone. Anyway, Lai is really much more popular than before, and has so many crazy fans now… Happy for him

      • Veejay says:

        I think Lai has been underrated by tvb, he got the looks, height, etc but don’t have the chance to get any good role to boost his popularity and chemistry with audiences.

        Tavia has gotten uglier than before…imo

    6. Jayne says:

      What did Yoyo Mung say to Lai Lok Yi in her birthday message to him?

      • anya says:

        @jayne: I don’t remember exactly what she said,but what I thought he was dating is:” needless to accompany you on your birthday…. you have friends…. tacit….” then she showed with a “lucky”smiley face… then a very closed friends of them( in their friend group)posted follow Yoyo that:”Today is your birthday, we don’t need to accompany you now? tacit…from your emotion…”
        Yoyo and Lok Yi have a “sister/brother” relationship, they always go eat and hang out with a group of friends together, there’s no reason they are not on his birthday, unless he has a girl to accompany him on that night, and from what her expression, I can understand he has someone special, but not sure if it’s Tavia.

    7. AC says:

      Awww. I think they make a cute couple.

    8. Chriselle says:

      I think they are dating, but both are boring people.

      Somehow Tavia and Lai Lok Yi reminds me of Shirley and Gregory because in the relationship, the woman makes more money than the man.

      • josie says:

        I think back to “always ready” and compare how far Linda has progressed. But Chris is still stuck in the supporting roles.

        • Chriselle says:

          Yeah, but some supporting roles can shine. Lai Lok Yi just can’t. Personally, I have no faith in his acting and even if he was given a good role, I doubt he will do that great. He lacks the charm than someone like Oscar Leung has, even though he is short and not as masculine. Oscar is simply very memorable in his supporting roles while someone like Lok Yi is boring. The only reason I don’t dislike him is because he has been playing good, but once again BORING characters.

        • Kidd says:

          Lok Yi’s role in ‘Every Move You Make’ is quite funny. Not a boring character.

        • Chriselle says:

          Speaking of that character, he wasn’t boring, but wasn’t likable/admirable at all, IMO.

        • Fox says:

          Lai Lok Yi lacks charm :(. It’s sad to say that since I quite like him.

          He has chance to be male lead (Color of love) but he was kinda failed. He can’t gain the attention.

          Lai Lok Yi somehow reminds me of Mathew Ko, who also lack the charm.

        • Kidd says:

          Matthew Ko has the charm. His acting is the area that’s lacking.

      • Iris says:

        It sure sounds and seems like they are dating. Lol, this killed my hope that Tavia and Ruco would date.

    9. LeilaFan says:

      This is new. Last time I read the news, it said that Tavia have a rich business boyfriend who is not in the acting industry.

    10. Fox says:

      2011 is really the year of love, lol. Breakup, new love, new reveal, divorce, marriage, all in 2011. Not many years have a lot of gossips like this year.

    11. sure-lee says:

      I don’t think they’re currently dating. Tavia and all her colleagues know that she is “dry”, unless they are dating so secretly that no one in TVB knows, which I highly doubt.

      • Fox says:

        You know, when an artist says he/she is dry, they are dating, lol. Check all the revealed love.

      • HeTieShou says:

        Don’t trust everything that artists say, especially about their loves lives since that is the topic that they lie about the most…

    12. raz says:

      AT least he’s more decent than the flasher bosco.

    13. AC says:

      I’m kinda surprised at all the people thinking that Tavia is boring. I don’t know how she was in the beginning, but whenever I see interviews with her now, I see her as always laughing and gets along with a lot of people.

      • Chriselle says:

        Tavia is fun in interviews and seems playful and friendly with everyone, but her roles/characters are boring since she always play the same types with enormous crying scenes. However, when she’s interviewed on the spot, I don’t seem to like her responses and they come off as too safe and thus, boring. But I’m assuming she’s just being obedient like Linda.

    14. buti4 says:

      Boring? You sure you got the right actress? Tavia is probably the most interesting actress atm. I really enjoy reading her interviews. She is so playful. She is not a question-answer person. She’s so fun to be with and sociable that she’s got a lot of friends in the industry: Ron, Moses, Raymond, Ruco, Ng Ka Lok, Lokyi Lai, Michael Tse, Christine Ng, Sharon Chan, Claire Yiu, Fala etc

      As for the Lok Yi rumours, those pictures are not recent. It was ages ago. She broke up with the fat businessman ages ago and she’s openly said she’s been dry for ages. All her friends have mentioned in public that she’s not dating someone and asked to look out for any single and available guys.

      Lok-yi was rumored to be Yoyo Mung’s boyfriend before. They were hanging out together. But it turned out that he was the middle-man between Ekin and her. Also the some other rich businessman. They thought he bought her a car coz she was driving his car. But that turned out to be her brother-in-law (Griselda’s now husband). Sometimes the media never get the info right.

      If rumors, what about her intimacy wit Ron recently at a YSNS promotional event? She was sitting on his lap, his hands were wrapped around her waist. Or what about when she went camera shopping with Pierre Ngo last year? Or what about her Weibo interactions and dog-walking with Ruco Chan? Kenneth Ma has openly talked about liking Tavia. Her mum likes Kenneth and Kenneth’s mum likes her.

      There’s so many rumours and possibilities that the media doesn’t go talk about and investigate…. they continue to make up stories like this….. Actually I WANT the media to follow her… I really want to know who she’s going out with…. I can’t believe such a pretty and fun girl like Tavia is still single!!!

      • Fox says:

        Too fun nobody want?

      • buti4 says:

        maybe she’s got high standards. maybe she wants a decent guy rather than a playboy who sleeps around. haha

      • Kidd says:

        “Boring? You sure you got the right actress? Tavia is probably the most interesting actress atm. I really enjoy reading her interviews. She is so playful. She is not a question-answer person. She’s so fun to be with and sociable that she’s got a lot of friends in the industry: Ron, Moses, Raymond, Ruco, Ng Ka Lok, Lokyi Lai, Michael Tse, Christine Ng, Sharon Chan, Claire Yiu, Fala etc”

        People who say she’s a boring actress mean to say she’s boring onscreen when she’s acting, not boring offscreen when interacting with her fellow actors.

        Secondly, what’s with all these long proofs showing that it’s just rumour? You don’t want her to date Lai Lok Yi?

      • Judy says:

        I agree… I don’t find her boring @ all… she gives off a very energetic vibe. Just b/c she doesn’t have any bad press doesn’t make her a boring person. I think Tavia is a very sociable person that gets along w/ everyone.

        • Kidd says:

          It’s not about bad press or good press or whether she’s funny and sociable or not with friends.

          The people who find her boring find her boring on screen. No spark.

        • Fox says:

          Boring onscreen.

          She might be friendly with friends and fans she knew. For strange fans or outsider, I heard a lot from ppl that she isn’t that friendly.

          Kate is kinda different. She looks fierce but in fact she is friendly and sociable.

        • buti4 says:

          Nop, funny never heard of that news. Well like you said, why would you even approach ‘strange fans’…. you’ll stay well clear from them.

          I actually heard Kate is a quite snobbish in real life and only suck up to executives.

        • Fox says:

          Some are friendly even to someone they dun know. Maybe they are just faked that, but it’s a good habit to artists to do such thing. Such as Linda, I’m a stranger to her and when I went to ask for her autograph for my friend, I only said: “Can you give me your autograph for my friend?” And she said “Yes”, do it immediately. I highly value this action of Linda. Although I don’t like her acting much, after that, I started to like Linda. Another example, my friend who isn’t a fan of Michelle Yim, met her and been invited to go back to hotel in Michelle’s car as it was late. Being friendly to a stranger isn’t anything bad to an artist.

          I actually heard a lot of such unfriendly to stranger attitude about TY. Maybe because you are a fan, you won’t know this :P.

          Kate’s friendly and sociable character is said by an insider in an article. Of course, you can choose to blv or not. When I met Kate, I think she is quite of that.

          Side note: Stranger here means the person who don’t claim themselves as a fan in front of an artist.

        • Kidd says:

          I was listening to a RTHK program and the DJs there also mentioned that Kate is very nice.

        • buti4 says:

          Tavia’s friendly and social behavior is also said by insiders in many articles. I’ve heard more good things about her personality than bad. DJs, interviews, co-stars, behind-the-scene crew, directors, producers all have but praise for Tavia.

          Furthermore, you shouldn’t base your judgment on a few random cases. Your points aint even strong.

          I have doubts about your opinion of Kate too. Google Kate Tsui… you’ll be able to bring up MANY reports/articles that she’s not such a good person in real life. She’s known to be arrogant, rude, lazy, bad attitude on film set…. heaps.

        • Fox says:

          Hello buti4, my opinions, not points.

          As for Kate, it’s my feel, even not opinion.

    15. Yee says:

      Tavia seems to be getting really friendly with Kenneth Ma, in my opinion they are getting more times together in series I think they would make a cute couple! They are like the new fungyi in my opinion, butthen again Tavia I’d friendly with everyone! Lol…

    16. Fox says:

      “Tavia’s fee at promotional events increased to $20,000 HKD per show recently, increasing her income significantly.”

      Only 20,000? Just same to Shirley? Hmmm.

      • exoidus says:

        sure it’s correct. maybe the original text was “increased by” and not “increased to”

        if shirley gets HKD 20,000 then something must be wrong. tavia is so much more popular than the two face lying shirley

        • Fox says:

          Then have to ask Jayne.

          Jayne, it’s increased to or increased by?

          I personally think it’s increased to since I rmb last time I read, her fee is 8,000.

          Shirley is two face lying or not, she still has high fee.

        • Jayne says:

          The article said that Tavia’s fee has been increased to $20,000 HKD, which I do agree seems to be low considering that she is in line to become the next top fadan after Charmaine’s departure.

        • Kidd says:

          I remember in Stephen Chan court case, Tavia’s fee is stated to be HK$40,000 to HK$50,000 for the function.

        • Fox says:

          Then blv which one? This one or that one?

        • Kidd says:

          Of course should believe court case report.

        • Fox says:

          @ Jayne: So it’s to.

          I dun rmb well but if I rmb rite, sehseh said that Charmaine’s fee is about 40-50k, depends on function and might be higher. Then to a successor, 20k isn’t too unreasonable.

          However, like Kidd said, blv the court statement more than tabloids.

          On the other hand, if I rmb rite, she said that in the half of 2011 she earned about 2 millions. This amount isn’t big, so maybe her fee isn’t too high. I guess that because she dun have the Miss status, his fee for beauty salon won’t be as high as the Misses.’

    17. ohno says:

      Chris is not dating Tavia, these are some old ass pictures. i have seen them before at least 1-2 yrs back. Chris is dating another girl from the pageant. anyway, dry spell in news lately. trend here is old pictures become new, pretty lame.

    18. Jayne says:

      In Tavia’s latest interview, she denied dating Lai Lok Yi:


      “As for Lai Lok Yi, perhaps the middle cable between us does not conduct electricity. Thus we do not have an ‘electrical’ connection.”

      LOL, I’ll still take Tavia’s comment with a grain of salt. Again, I wonder why Lai Lok Yi would spend time shopping with Tavia’s mother if they were only friends. Does Lok Yi have that much free time on his hands that he is friendly with his friends’ mothers too??

    19. samche says:

      i really like tavia. if i was a guy i would love to date her as well. glad to hear that she’s dating.

    20. Pineapple says:

      I’ve never heard of Tavia dating before. I also like Lai Lok Yee so hope that things work out for them. Doesn’t matter that he has no money as he is still young and has lots of opportunities. Tavia’s mum is probably one of these very old fashioned Chinese women who thinks that the husband should earn more than the wife and hence her dislike of Lok Yee. Maybe if he got more roles then things would change for them.

    21. Vivien says:


      Cover story of Oriental Sunday magazine has a sequel for Lok Yi-Tavia scandal! Do you have the article yet?

    22. Pineapple says:

      Thanks for that. I can’t read Chinese and thats why I never buy Entertainment magazines from China Town. Thats why I come on to this blog as its in English.

    23. Kas says:

      I didn’t even know there is ruomr of Lak Lok Yi and Tavia. If it’s true, then I’m happy for them. They don’t look like they’re player and seems serious about relationship.

    24. Jessie says:

      personally I think she fits well with ruco!

    25. Vcfejgzf says:

      In a meeting http://ikanyuci.de.tl little caprice porn He had NO nut! She is amazing though and she plays to the camera until the very end. Ahhh, I feel better now.
