Pace Wu’s Boyfriend is Billions in Debt
In 2013, Taiwanese model-actress Pace Wu (吳佩慈) took her leave from the industry after giving birth to her first child with Hong Kong businessman, Ji Xiaobo (紀曉波). While Pace and Ji are not married, the couple welcomed four children over the past seven years. The couple’s fourth child, a daughter, was born in January 2020. Pace hosted four baby showers for her, making headlines.
It goes without saying that Ji is very rich. The billionaire businessman, who has roots in Heilongjiang, would gift Pace random houses and properties like they are tangible. Thanks to Ji, it has been said that Pace herself is now worth over $5.9 billion Hong Kong dollars.
But according to rumors that have been ongoing since last year, Ji is currently in a financial slump. Poor business operations has led him to be over HK$6.4 billion in debt. To support Ji, it was said that Pace had to sell her HK$330 million Mid-levels home for cash. Ji even appeared in court earlier this year after being sued for an additional HK$342 million, unrelated to his past debts.
Surprisingly, Pace maintained her wealthy image on social media, with her baby shower party being the key to quell down rumors of financial troubles.
According to Hong Kong reports, Ji’s mother failed to pay rent for her three properties located in Deep Water Bay, Hong Kong Island. The owners have already took the case to court, asking for HK$1.81 million in unpaid rent and utilities. The owners are also looking to ask Ji and his mother to pay up an additional HK$3.6 million which was owed from last year, totaling HK$5.41 million.
