Macau casino tycoon Alvin Chau (周焯華) has a messy love life. Married to businesswoman Heidi Chan (陳慧玲) and the baby daddy of Mandy Lieu, Alvin’s cheating tendencies is well known among the industry. A well-documented love affair with Mandy didn’t stop the casino giant from pursuing other women.
Last June, Alvin started a love rumor with Hong Kong-based Japanese model Linah Matsuoka (松岡李那) when the two were spotted attending a mutual friend’s wedding in Hawaii, dancing intimately. Unlike many of his past rumored relationships, Alvin was quick to deny dating Linah. He released a statement clarifying that they were only friends, and claimed that the gossip report had severely affected his family.
Tabloids stopped reporting about Alvin and Linah’s relationship thereafter, but on March 8, the two were spotted together again, this time attending a banquet for Stephen Shiu, Jr.’s (蕭定一) HMV Digital China Group. The rumored couple did not sit together, but Alvin eventually moved to Linah’s table, and even waved to the reporters who were invited to the event.
The two interacted intimately that night. Ignoring reporters that were sitting on the same table, Alvin and Linah constantly whispered to each other and exchanged laughter. They were briefly separated when they took group photos with Stephen Shiu.
Intoxicated, Alvin loudly talked about his love rumor with Universe International’s Daniel Lam (林小明), “Do you still remember the Hawaii incident? The person [I hugged] was actually Linah’s mom! Her mom’s back looked exactly like hers. [The reporters] had it all wrong! I was hugging her mom, and they thought I was hugging her. Did they have photos of our faces? No!”
Linah was very attached to Alvin that night. She hugged Alvin right after toasting at their table. When she won money at the raffle, she immediately told Alvin about the good news.
Are the rumors true?
