Bowie Lam Has a New Boyfriend?
After leaving TVB in 2011 and shifting his focus to to Mainland China, Bowie Lam’s (林保怡) career has been smooth-sailing. In the industry for 28 years, he has always kept his love life low-profile. Bowie has never revealed his sexual orientation, but he has openly supported gay rights. He was recently spotted spending quality time with a 25-year old man, who is speculated to be Bowie’s new boyfriend.
Bowie was romantically linked to two other men in the past. In 2000, Bowie’s assistant, Daniel, was caught frequently spending the night at the actor’s house. In 2007, when Mr. Hong Kong contestant Byron Kung (彭冠期) was mourning at Bowie’s mother’s funeral, rumors questioning Bowie’s sexual orientation arose once more.
Secret Dates in Hong Kong
Last month, Bowie was seen visiting the parents of his male friend in secret. When they spotted the paparazzi, Bowie immediately grew angry and glared at reporters. Bowie then shouted, “Where are you guys from? Can you stop taking pictures?”
Bowie was also seen with his male friend when they were casually shopping in a shoe store in Sham Sui Po. Although Bowie and his friend were happily enjoying their time, Bowie had a keen eye and spotted the followers right away. Ending the shopping trip early, Bowie and his friend quickly left the store.
An insider revealed that 49-year-old Bowie and his friend met last year and became very close over time. The source stated, “At Bowie’s age, he doesn’t like going to pubs and getting drunk anymore. If he doesn’t have work, he would rather come back to Hong Kong and sleep early and wake up early. In the morning, he would meet with friends to hike or go to the gym. Last year, he met the male friend through a mutual buddy. The male friend also hikes and since they have something in common, they grew close quickly. Bowie and him hit it off immediately.”
