Cecilia Cheung Sues Press Over Exposure of Marcus’ Birth Certificate
The actress has yet to reveal the father of her baby.
Since announcing the birth of her third son Marcus Cheung (張禮承) in 2018, Cecilia Cheung (張栢芝) has kept quiet about the identity of the child’s father, provoking much speculation about his identity. According to sources, the 40-year-old star took legal action after her son’s birth certificate was leaked to the press.
Seeking Legal Recourse
In January 2019, Marcus’ birth certificate was revealed by tabloids. It was said that Cecilia then approached Hong Kong’s Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data to raise the matter, which was then escalated to the police for further investigations.
In response to queries, the police spokesperson confirmed that it received a referral complaint of the said nature in October 2019. East Kowloon’s Criminal Investigation Department (CID) undertook investigations and consulted the Department of Justice before issuing a summons against an editor and journalist from local press outfit Next Digital for instigating the disclosure of personal data obtained without consent.
The case has been scheduled to be heard on February 22 at the Kwun Tong Magistrates’ Court.
