Artiste Charlene Choi (蔡卓妍) has made the split with “Mahjong Prince” boyfriend of six years, Anthony Shi (石恆聰)!
Despite both parties having met the parents earlier on and progressing their relationship to co-habiting in year 2019, talk of their separation made its rounds on August 13. Rumors claimed that the cause of the breakup was Anthony’s gallivanting and close interactions with an unidentified “Miss C” from the entertainment industry, as well as the pair’s lack of consensus on marriage.
Did “Miss C” Cause the Breakup?
Personally confirming the news of her breakup to HK media, the 40-year-old denied the involvement of other parties and merely summed up, “We had separated for some time. No third party was involved and it was an amicable breakup. We remain very good friends; of course we had some issues between us leading to the breakup, but it is sufficient to keep these to myself and there’s no need to let others know (pray emoji x 3) Thank you everyone for the concern.”
Known for his partying ways, Anthony, the rich heir of a mahjong business, reportedly did not shy away from meeting up with his female friends even while in a dating relationship with Charlene. Seeing Anthony as her marriage partner, Charlene turned down advances from other eligible bachelors, and spent most of her time outside of work accompanying him.
Revenge Travels with Friends & Family
Apprehensive of getting back into the dating game, Charlene had tried to ignore the circulating rumors surrounding Anthony initially, according to sources. Alas, many of her close friends warned her about Anthony getting too close with Miss C, which eventually led her to the painful decision to make a clean break once and for all.
Unwilling to leave Charlene alone post-breakup, her friends took the initiative to accompany her on vacations. Taking a long break from work, the former TWINS member embarked on a spate of “revenge” travels, first accompanying her grandmother, dad and two cousins to Thailand in May, before heading to Switzerland with her mother. A staycation with girlfriends on returning to Hong Kong then followed, after which she went on a trip to Korea with a few good friends.
