Alex Fong and Stephy Tang End 10-Year Relationship
Dating for a decade, Alex Fong (方力申) and Stephy Tang (方力申) were dubbed as one of Hong Kong’s golden couple. Living together for years, the pair was often asked when they planned to tie the knot. It came as a shock when the pair announced their split yesterday.
Although Alex refused to comment on the matter, Stephy instead published an extensive message on Weibo to voice her feelings. “It is with a heavy heart that this decision was made. A ten-year relationship is not easy. In these ten years, we have been on the same road and working hard towards the same goal. But gradually, our pace changed and we began to view things differently. Ten years ago, we got together because we liked each other. Ten years later, we are splitting because of understanding.”
Defending Alex, Stephy took the initiative to clarify any assumptions of a third party involvement. “Alex is one of the best men I have ever known. I do not have the blessing to be with him until old age. I ask everyone not to make any assumptions. There was no third party involved. We did not do anything to hurt each other.”
Stephy hopes that they will both find greater happiness in the future with different respective partners. “Separation is to allow us to perhaps find a greater love, and a more fitting partner.”
Stephy continued, “As an onscreen couple, everyone adored us. But as a real-life couple playing lovers onscreen, there was a lot of pressure. Everyone’s hope and expectations for us, everyone’s well wishes for us… I can only say sorry! We have disappointed everyone! Our love was real. It wasn’t fake or pretentious. Even though our relationship has changed, I will continue to see him as one of my closest family member whom I will continue to protect, just in a different way.”
