Adrian Wong Responds to Grandfather’s Condition

Felix Wong’s (黃日華) family conflicts have been making headlines. It was revealed that Felix has made no attempt to visit or support his 84-year-old father, who is currently nursing an illness at the hospital. Despite public attention, Felix has kept mum about the situation. His daughter, actress Adrian Wong (黃芷晴), finally broke the silence on February 25, explaining that her father has been working in the Mainland, and that he will handle the matter as soon as possible.

Although Felix was applauded for caring for his wife during a severe bout of scurvy, he is now faulted by some for failing to do the same for his ailing, eighty-four-year-old father. His stepmother Lau Wun Chan (劉煥珍) revealed that father and son have been estranged ever since her name was added onto family assets. While Felix has supported his father financially in the past, he seems to have finally cut ties. The elder Mr. Wong and his second wife are now struggling to pay the bills.

While his maternal relative and his stepmother have both spoken up in public, Felix has made no comment regarding the situation. His daughter Adrian, who often speaks on his behalf, has also kept silent aside from vague words about enduring pain and troublesome matters in a recent Instagram post. The public is left to form their own opinions; some expressed understanding of his family drama, while others tried to convince him to pay his father a visit.

After days of silence, Adrian finally made a brief response on yesterday, saying that her father has recently returned from working in China and will address the matter soon. She also confirmed her family’s strained relationship. “Since my grandmother passed away, grandfather has established a new family with Ms. Lau. Honestly speaking, we are not as close as before. We found out about grandfather’s hospital stay through relatives, who told us that his condition is not considered serious.”

She added that she is unable to comment further on issues involving her elders, and has already urged her father to make a public response. As for when they will actually go for a visit, Adrian said that although she is worried about her grandfather’s health, she will leave it up to Felix to decide on a date.

    I don’t know what it is but for some reason I really dislike Felix’s daughter. Every time she opens her mouth I just want to tell her to shut up. LOL

      i find adrian irritating as well, she thinks she outsmart the whole clan of whom she thinks are her dad’s fans/worshippers, people KNOW it when she’s not telling the truth, feels like she treats the public as rubbish, better for felix to stop using his silly daughter as his mouthpiece, stop giving her a hand in her ‘acting’ career, it’s doing more harm for her than good.. careerwise or characterwise

      Funny i was thinking the same. Although i haven’t yet to see her in any programmings, but something about her i dislike, maybe it’s the way she talks, looks … i just don’t know … i just know i don’t care to see her photos or comments and definitely am not looking forward to see anything she’s in. I on the other hand like her dad, but he needs to get another publicists, having Adrian spoke on his behalf, i’ll probably will start disliking him too lol

    Felix excuse is he is in Mainland China. What’s Adrian’s? Can’t go anywhere without her daddy??? Anyway it’s so convenient travel to/from China and I’m sure his boss wouldn’t be as heartless as him and not allow him to take a leave to visit his sick father.
    “…Honestly speaking, we are not as close as before. We found out about grandfather’s hospital stay through relatives, who told us that his condition is not considered serious” Going into hospital is not serious? are you kidding? Any elderly person going into hospital there’s a chance they don’t come out. I have seen it here. What a lousy granddaughter!

      Agree!
      The grandfather is 84 year olds, elderly at these age any sickness is considered serious! Please don’t speak like that to your grandfather.

      Ms. Lau (the stepmom) clarified that Felix had given them $2,000 HKD when they married, and had provided $2,500 HKD monthly allowance over the past thirteen months.
      By the way, the supporting allowance that Felix give to his father is $2,500 HKD a month. Anyone in HK know if that money is alot or not.
      Felix have been in entertainment industry for 30+ years, he make his MILLIONS and MILLIONS of HKD. As an actor, he is not dirt poor. Giving $2,5000 HKD a month to his father is Nothing to brag about.

      And snopy, your other post I agree. Quote from snoopy:
      “I also don’t see a problem with having the step mother’s name added to the bank account.
      She is living with the father and looking after the day to day need. She needs to have access to the funds. How troublesome it would be to have to contact the daughter everytime and whenever they need money to buy grocery, travel by taxi to medical appointments or pay for GP. An giving $2,500 a month to his father… that’s less than what a maid get in a month! Even if Felix doesn’t accept her as step mother, he should be thankful that someone is looking after his father 24/7.” BRAVO! snoopy, you are a nice son/daughter, God bless you dear.

        I guess d HKD 2500 is for old Mr.Wong to spend and not supporting his new family. If Old Mr. Wong is finanially not strong and does not has the financial ability..then why married a new young wife and hav three more kids?

        WHAT LYLJ? I think you got the info. wrong.
        Felix’s dad remarried after 7 years of his wife passed away.
        The current woman (Felix’s stepmom) is younger than his dad. And she have children from her previous marriage.
        Felix’ dad and her did NOT have any children together. All the children are grow, and they are step-siblings of each others.

        Dear, please fully read all the news before spit out things like “married young new wife and have three more kids” === what kids?
        Felix dad married this woman 5-6 years ago. At that time he already close to 80 year olds.
        An 80 year olds and a 50+ year olds woman have 3 little babies? Where? LMFAO!

    It’s family business.
    We should not judge Felix and his family for however they choose to respond to his father’s hospitalization.

    Strained relationships are complicated, especially within the family. 一家唔知一家事, 家家有本難念的經

      I also agree – though I don’t like Felix or his daughter much, the media should not give free publicity to the stepmother and the public should respect their family privacy instead of preaching about what he should or should not do. His own relatives would be doing that already. The daughter should have just kept her mouth shut.

    Ignore her. Daddy’s little girl. Family politics.
    I looked at the hospital photos and it wasn’t good. Especially the one where Mr Wong’s wife pointing to the area of the operation. I mean there is no need for that. What was she thinking???

    It is Felix’s family business and up to him to decide what to do. No one knows his situation better than himself. People and their “he is this” and “he is that” need to save it, and deal with their own problems than nosy on others’.

    The 2nd Mrs. Wong should stop talking to the press and keep family matters private. Her talking to the press will not do any good at bringing them closer, if anything, she’ll further alienate Felix from his father and resent her even more.

      I think we should leave Felix alone.. the poor guy has to look after his wife and since 2nd Mrs Wong wants to marry the old man.. she has to take care of him in sickness and health.. just because now he has no money she came putting the blame on Felix.. for all you know she has already parked all of her husband’s money into her own account

    We know its Felix family business, but its heartbreaking to see a son not visiting his sick elderly father. Regardless of what the father did, as a son should still visit, care and comfort him at this crucial time. Hope he can have some decency and put all difference aside and care for his dad.

    From what she said you can kinda deduce

    1. the children did not like the new wife
    2. the new wife probably did not make any effort to bond with the adult children (also difficult as well)
    3. the father probably scolded them for disrespecting the new wife (hence the rift widens)
    4. all these years neither party made any effort to reconcile

    Sometimes a new member of the family will get in the way. But if it is 1-4, I feel Felix should be the better and bigger man and let it be. It must be something more. People don’t refuse to visit anyone on deathbeds due to small grudges.
