Celebrities Who Dated their Friends’ Exes

Recently, rumors are swirling that Hong Kong actress Jennifer Yu (余香凝) rejected Bosco Wong‘s (黃宗澤) advances since he is allegedly dating her good friend Rose Chan (陳嘉桓). As a result, Bosco immediately cut ties with Jennifer and clarified that the rumors are false.

However, it’s quite common for celebrities to date their friends’ exes in the entertainment circle. Although it sounds complicated, some have managed to keep both romance and friendship, but that’s not always the case. Others have let their love lives hinder their friendships, losing friends in the process.

Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) and Selena Lee (李施嬅)


Bosco’s former girlfriend of eight years, Myolie, belongs to the first group, having the best of both worlds. Myolie does not mind that her husband, Philip Lee (李乘德), dated her good friend Selena back then. She expressed that her friendship with Selena ultimately comes first, and Selena was also one of her bridesmaids. Myolie previously said, “Their news is in the past. The two of them don’t mind, so why should I care?”

G.E.M. (鄧紫棋) and JW (王灝兒)


On the other hand, G.E.M. could not salvage her more than 10 years of friendship with JW when she began dating her stylist Mark Ngai. G.E.M. reportedly met Mark when he was dating JW, and the three would attend events and gatherings together in the past. However, after G.E.M. and Mark became an item, G.E.M. and JW began drifting apart. JW has publicly said that she does not contact G.E.M. anymore, and the two do not follow each other on social media.

Yanny Chan (陳穎欣) and Heidi Lee (李靜儀)


Similarly, it is speculated that Super Girls members Yanny and Heidi fell out when Yanny interfered with Heidi’s relationship. After Gareth Chan (陳考威) and Heidi broke up, he immediately began dating Yanny, leading the displeased Heidi to unfollow Yanny on social media. However, they put on a front for their fans during promotional events, given that they are in the same group.

Evelyn Choi (蔡穎恩) and Leanne Ho (何思諺)


Last but not least, Evelyn and Leanne also ended their friendship for similar reasons. Mr. drummer Tom Do (杜志烜) began dating Leanne a few months after breaking up with Evelyn in 2011. Two months later, the new couple announced that Leanne was pregnant, and they were preparing for their wedding. When Evelyn was asked about the situation, she said that she would rather spend time seeing friends whom she actually wants to see.

  1. As long as they were never official or have officially broken up, I think it’s a free for all. Personally, I would just let my friend know. I don’t need her permission nor she mine, but just as a heads up.

  2. Personally, I think it’s gross to date a friend’s ex. Once I know my close friend has dated someone, that person becomes like a brother to me. I would never date them. Even if it was just a casual friend, I still wouldn’t – I just don’t like the idea of comparisons (you know it will cross people’s minds whether you like it or not.) Or the idea that they’ve been intimate before (don’t need that kinda imagery.)

    On the other hand, I don’t mind if other people do it. And in HK, everyone kind of runs in a tight knit social circle. Or it’s the wealthy ones who are looking for some arm trophy. But there’s only so much wealthy 2nd Gs running around. So they have no choice but to date each other’s exes. Practical, but still ugggh to me.

  3. The moral issue of dating a friend’s ex or dating a friend’s current boyfriend, has to do with Trust and Betrayal. Friends confide in each other and this includes those they are dating. When you trust someone enough – esp when there is intimacy or shared secrets, it is betrayal of a friendship and relationship. If you can’t wait but to jump the bones of your friend’s lover, WAIT for them to break up for some suitable time for the more “wounded” party to get over it. Then tell your friend how she / he feels if you wanted to extend the friendship with their ex. What ppl dont realize is this. The one who jumps into a relationship with you when they have another one? They aren’t likely to change. The same way you got him? That will be the same way he will leave you. Cheaters don’t change. I would pick my friendship over having my friend’s used goods

  4. None of these guys are worth losing friends for, they are all butt ugly. Unless they’re from money these hoes br digging for gold

  5. I know a couple of people who stole their best friends fiancé. They were literally bffs. Not new, word of wisdom is, don’t trust it best friend with it significant others.
