Bernice Liu Said that Moses Chan Is Gay?
Although Bernice Liu Bik Yee and Moses Chan Ho always publicly denied their relationship, many insiders within the entertainment industry knew they were dating. When tabloids published photos of Bernice on a date with Alastair Lam, her six-year relationship with Moses ended in a dramatic fashion.
According to an inside source, Bernice had dated two men at the same time in the past. While dating Hawick Lau Hoi Wai, Bernice allegedly stole another woman’s boyfriend. When she first entered the industry, she befriended the owner of Mence Beauty, Mrs. Leung and her daughter, Vicky. Allegedly, Bernice fell for the man due to his wealth. In response to the rumors, Vicky said, “I will not respond to the question as it does not pertain to myself.”
In June, the paparazzi photographed Bernice partying on a yacht with a group of friends. In the photos, there was a tall American Born Chinese (ABC) man who stood by Bernice’s side all night. Why was the wealthy ABC man interested in Bernice if her romance with Moses was half-public? An inside source said, “Whether speaking to ad vendors or wealthy friends, Bernice always said that her pairing with Moses was arranged by TVB. She hinted that Moses did not prefer women and was ‘gay.’ So people outside the entertainment industry thought this was the truth.”
Bernice realized that Moses was deeply in love with her and thus successfully got out of each escapade. Moses chose to believe her in each incident. Afraid that Bernice would believe his rumors with female co-stars, Moses often drew clear boundaries from these rumors, including ones with Charmaine Sheh Si Man earlier this year.
Many friends were concerned about Moses’ on-again-off-again relationship with Bernice. When the press published photos of Bernice and Alastair together, Moses’ friends felt it was unfair for him and worried whether he would wake up from his reverie. Moses said calmly, “Prior to the press publishing the photos, I was unaware of the incident. I don’t want to look at it anymore!” Moses also indicated that he has not been in contact with Bernice since the incident. Was Moses angry? “I have always treated relationships in an understated manner. It is enough that I know it inside! I do not want her to have any negative press and do not want her to get hurt!” (If Bernice explained to you, will you go back to her?) “I think…it is best to focus on my career now. I don’t know how to answer!”
Regarding allegations that Bernice had a history of dating two men at the same time, Moses said, “There are always going to be many different rumors circulating. Bernice is a kind-hearted woman. When I see that she is happy, I am okay. Anyway, the past is the past!” (She said that you are gay?) “I have never heard of this. My response is the same: the past is the past!” Moses did not have anything negative to say about Bernice.
In response to rumors that Bernice stole a boyfriend from the daughter of a beauty salon owner, she said that she was uncertain of who the tabloid report referred to and did not respond. (Did Bernice circulate rumors that said Moses Chan was gay?) Bernice did not answer directly but noted that she did not want to implicate friends and colleagues. Although she denied living together with Alastair Lam, she will not avoid having dinner with him. (Did Bernice only select wealthy friends?) “I don’t understand what that means. Since I was young, I made friends with good people, regardless of whether they have money or not.”
Bernice hinted that she knew the person who spoke anonymously with the tabloid. “The world is round. How you treat others, this will come back full-circle to you.” She emphasized this statement three times and said that retribution will fall on the person. Since Moses became a “victim,” Bernice said she was helpless on the matter.
