Raymond Lam (林峯) concealed his relationship with ex-girlfriend, Mavis Pan (潘霜霜), from the entire Asian region until their bed photos were leaked. Aside from hurting his female fans, the incident also affected the ticket sales of his concert. Despite the Mavis scandal, 31-year-old Raymond threw caution to the wind and dated Xiamen beauty, Angel Fong (芳芳) behind Mavis Pan’s back!
To-date, Raymond and Angel’s relationship has not ended. Angel often slept over at Raymond’s Dynasty Court house, where she took numerous photos and played hostess in the pictures. Allegedly, Raymond dated Mavis and Angel at the same time. Mavis confirmed that she met Angel before and stated, “They broke up in front of me!” Although Raymond and Angel separated on the surface, they continued to meet secretly. Raymond’s [acting skills] can earn him the Best Actor Award!
Since the release of Raymond and Mavis’ bed photos in March 2011, his good image plummeted. Aside from losing a large number of fans, Raymond also lost a role in a mainland series. He lost both fans and money from the scandal. Realizing that the right path was not appearing, Raymond tried his best efforts to remediate. No matter where he appeared, Raymond put on his “Mr. Happy” face and allowed countless photographs. The beverage ad he endorsed will be released soon. Raymond will film Raymond Wong’s (黃百鳴) new big-budget movie, Valiant Legend <忠烈楊家將> next.
Although there was a bright future ahead, Raymond did not change his hardcore ways. Six months have not yet passed and Raymond already forgot about his “love injuries” and he continued to bring women back to his home. Face Magazine discovered that on August 12th, a woman named Angel Fong uploaded several photos on her blog. The background of the photos featured the vast collection of awards that Raymond Lam won over the years, while another photo featured a sled dog [Raymond owned a sled dog]. The photos were obviously taken at Raymond’s house. Although Angel was alone in the photos, she remained at Raymond’s house at 4 AM posting a message on her blog, “I can’t sleep! Let me post a photo for everyone to see!” Angel took the opportunity to boast that she was sleeping over at Raymond’s house.
Taking Frenzied Photos of Raymond’s House
Raymond’s Xiamen girlfriend, Angel Fong, took frenzied photos of his house for her own memories. On August 12th, Angel posted the photos she took on her blog in the middle of the night. Behind Angel stood a wall prominently displaying Raymond Lam’s music and acting awards. One particular award from 2007’s Jade Solid Gold 3rd Quarter was extremely prominent, making it difficult for Raymond to deny [that Angel was indeed at his house]!
Dating Mavis Pan and Angel Fong at the Same Time
In December 2010, while Raymond and Mavis were still heatedly in love, Angel freely visited Raymond’s Dynasty Court apartment and took a photo with his sled dog. In March 2011, prior to the release of Mavis and Raymond’s bed photos, Angel was not officially together with Raymond. In a troubled mood, Angel posted on her blog that she was unhappy and vowed not to update her blog anymore.
After filming The Jade and the Pearl <翡翠明珠>, Raymond and Mavis started dating. Due to the release of a batch of bed photos in March, their Raymond and Mavis’ relationship ended. Raymond’s career was threatened while his fans scolded Mavis daily. Half a year later, the scandal died down.
In August, Mavis posted a message about enjoying her current filming project. Shockingly, Raymond’s new girlfriend, Angel Fong, left a taunting message on Mavis’ blog stating, “If you can see that I am here right now…you will regret loving this type of man!” Angel’s message challenged Mavis to look at the photo of her taken at Raymond’s house which was posted on Angel’s blog. Despite Angel openly declaring war, Mavis sealed her lips and did not respond. Mavis only admitted, “They broke up in front of me before!”
Aside from visiting Raymond’s house in August, Angel was also at his house in March this year. She took a photo of Raymond’s music awards and posted them on her blog, apparently eager to boast that she possessed a singer boyfriend! The photo featured the “TVB.com Popularity Award” and the “My Favorite Male Actor Award” that Raymond received at last year’s TVB Anniversary! In addition, Angel placed the “Top Ten Chinese Gold Songs Award” that Raymond received in 2009 on a bed and snapped a photo, writing on her blog, “Seize every opportunity to make yourself happy!”
Angel was able to enter Raymond’s house in the midst of recent scandals since they have known each other for many years. An inside source revealed, “Angel and Raymond are both from Xiamen. Angel knew Raymond for a long time, even before he dated Mavis. Although he fell for Mavis, he continued to see Angel behind her back. Since both women did not live in Hong Kong, Raymond thought that by alternating Mavis and Angel’s visits at his home, he will not be found out!”
Since “paper cannot cover fire,” the alert Mavis quickly discovered that something was awry with Raymond. An inside source revealed, “Raymond complained that Mavis knew that he was also dating his Xiamen girlfriend. Although he liked Angel, he did not want to break up with Mavis. Thus, he pretended to break up with Angel in front of Mavis instead.”
Angel Fong is a Gold Digger
Unlike Mavis who came from a wealthy background, Angel worked as a bar girl at a Xiamen bar. Allegedly, Angel had good relations with an influential figure in China and even Raymond was afraid of him. A mainland source familiar with Angel Fong noted that she was greedy towards money and often had Raymond send her designer brand gifts. In February, Angel posted a photo of a Chanel brand condom and vowed to try it when she had the opportunity! To make Angel happy, Raymond gave her lavish gifts, including a Hermes bag and a $120,000 HKD Cartier Baignoire watch.Recently, Angel has been busy renovating her new house, posting, “Hubby, do you think the new decor looks beautiful?”
When the Mavis bed photo scandal occurred in March 2011 , Raymond cried publicly to pretend he was hurt. He was filming Return to the Three Kingdoms and could not avoid the paparazzi at the time, thus he forced tears to look pitiful. In actuality, he continued to keep Angel by his side. Raymond never experienced not having a woman by his side!
Lying With Eyes Wide Open
On March 23, 2011 during the praying ceremony of Return to the Three Kingdoms <回到三國>, Raymond was asked by the press to speak about the Mavis bed photo scandal. Raymond forced a heartbroken expression to appear as a victim. He vowed to focus on work and averted his gaze.
“While dating her (Mavis Pan), if I hurt her through and incident or in any manner, I am willing to accept it, even if it were a trap.”
“Even if I were to listen or reflect upon the incident, I will feel pain inside my heart!”
“Each time I reflect upon my beautiful memories that belong to me, I am heartbroken!”
“I just hope that my emotions stabilize so I can work.”
Indulging in your lust is equivalent to hanging a knife upon your head (色字头上一把刀). In an earlier interview, Raymond noted that he will retain distance from the opposite sex, “When I step outside now, I am afraid of taking photos and facing the camera. Whenever a woman approaches me, my guard is up! I am very happy now. My love life is blank. However, work, playing toys and video games, and watching cartoons can also satisfy me!” Although he was afraid of the camera, Raymond continued to pick up women!
Angel Fong Already Married?
After Face Magazine’s expose on the underground relationship between Raymond and Angel was published, Appledaily reported that Angel was already a married woman and that she was only an old friend of Raymond’s from Xiamen. After Face Magazine’s article surfaced, Angel immediately erased all her blog entries and photos online, causing speculation over her actions.
When reporters asked Mavis Pan about Angel Fong, Mavis said, “I do not know who she (Angel) is. I have never seen her before.” (Did Mavis think that Angel may have been a third party in Mavis and Raymond’s relationship?) “He (Raymond) is in the past and no longer means anything to me.”
Raymond was currently filming Valiant Legend in Beijing and could not be reached for comment at the time of the news publication.
Excerpt from Face Magazine and Appledaily
Jayne: How many women will come forward to say, “I slept with Raymond Lam!” How many women will continue to use their sexual relationship with him as their ticket to fame?
Does Raymond follow Angel’s blog? When she showed early photos of Raymond’s awards taken at his house, he didn’t see those photos posted on her blog? Didn’t ask her to remove them??
Angel has an odd obsession in taking photos of Raymond’s awards while he’s not there. It almost seems like her intention to take photos with concrete evidence that she was indeed a frequent visitor at Raymond’s house.
Earlier, I asked this question, “If you slept with a famous celebrity, will you brag about it openly on your blog?” This is under the assumption that the relationship will not last in the long term and you are together for fun times or just enjoyment of the moment.
