Late last month, Ashley Chu (朱智賢) and Jackson Lai‘s (黎振燁) careers came to a halt when their affair, dubbed as the “Sum On Scandal 2.0,” surfaced. Given that Jackson has a pregnant wife and Ashley is dating actor-singer Brian Tse (謝東閔), the two rising stars received a lot of backlash for their infidelity even though Jackson’s wife forgave him and Ashley publicly apologized. Despite Ashley’s betrayal, Brian continued to stand by her and defend her. Now, rumors are circulating that he bought a new home in Tuen Mun for 10.8 million HKD to continue with his original plan of marrying Ashley.
However, given the sudden events, it is reported that Brian has been decorating the new home by himself since Ashley wants to rest and reflect during her two-week hiatus from work. Once things are ready and settled, they will allegedly prepare for marriage.
Brian and Ashley’s Relationship
The forgiving and thoughtful Brian is known to be a “hot property” among the entertainment circle with his wealthy background coming into play. His father owns a salon, and his mother has a domestic helper referral agency. In 2013, he opened a foot massage business with his family, and it’s been earning a lot of money. On top of the family businesses, he was also getting promoted at TVB and receiving a lot of jobs. His recent song “The Coldest Day” <最冷的一天> was also very well-received.
It wasn’t until 2017 that Ashley broke up with restaurateur Derak to snag this “hot property.” Though Ashley and Brian’s dating rumors surfaced, the two have never admitted to being in a relationship. However, they would always show up at events together and appear at each others’ gatherings with friends. Though they were recognized as a pair in the entertainment circle, it wasn’t until Ashley’s cheating came to light that they finally acknowledged their romance.
