After the passing of Coco Lee (李玟), Coco’s estranged husband Bruce Rockowitz has largely remained quiet and was called out for not issuing Coco’s obituary. As fans express their annoyance that Bruce is reportedly assuming Coco’s assets, Bruce finally speaks out to dispute the claims.
Ahead of Coco’s funeral service to be held on July 31, Bruce issued a statement in Chinese to clarify his marriage and financial status. Bruce claims that netizens are maliciously fabricating news in order to gain online traffic and criticized their behaviors for infringing on his and his family’s privacy.
In his statement, Bruce emphasized that he and Coco had always maintained separate finances since their marriage, “I respected Coco’s arrangement on her personal property. I have never been or will not be involved in anything regarding the distribution of Coco’s property.”
Bruce also issued a stern statement to malicious netizens to stop their actions and to delete their remarks. He added that he enlisted a lawyer for further legal action and to hold malicious netizens accountable.
Coco’s Family Confronted Bruce
While Bruce addressed the netizens, Bruce reportedly had an incident with Coco’s family. According to Hong Kong media, Coco and Bruce separated at the beginning of the year but Coco’s outfits were left in Bruce’s house. Coco’s family wanted to get the outfits back, but because Bruce was not at home at the time, Bruce’s staff asserted that not a single piece of Coco’s outfit could be found.
Coco’s family was in disbelief and threatened to call the police unless the staff returned Coco’s outfit within 48 hours. In the end, Coco’s family received two boxes of Coco’s family which included six to seven outfits, one of which was the red Cheongsam that Coco wore to the Oscars.
