Fake Rumors Caused Christine Kuo to Develop Depressive Disorders
Christine Kuo (苟芸慧) has become the center of a series of controversial rumors once again. First, there was a false but very dramatic allegation that she seduced Michael Tse (謝天華) in his car last summer. The car-shaking, as it was known, turned out to be merely a scene from their TVB drama, Friendly Fire <法網狙擊>.
Christine was then rumored for being a popular candidate to go on paid dinner dates with business magnates, but she quickly rebuffed that case.
Last weekend, tabloids claimed that Christine and Matthew Ko (高鈞賢) have become an item as the two were seen interacting intimately at Stefan Wong (黃長興) and Peggy Siu’s wedding banquet. The pair was close together throughout the night, and Matthew was seen patting on Christine’s head several times, a gesture that usually indicates an intimate relationship.
Days later, rumors of Christine and Aaron Kwok (郭富城) surfaced. Tabloids alleged that Christine and Aaron had been secretly dating for five months, causing Lynn Hung (熊黛林) to inexplicably move out from Aaron’s home. Christine and Aaron’s rumors came to light when an alleged neighbor of Christine’s slipped to the tabloids that Aaron’s Porsche GT3 sports car was seen parked in front of Christine’s home.
Christine denied all rumors at a recent interview. The goddess laughed off the rumors, explaining that she has already learned how to care less about such nonsense claims. Christine flatly said, “Aaron and I never contacted each other after shooting the commercial. I don’t even have his phone number. The most we would do is reply to each other on Weibo. The report said that his car was parked below my building, but that’s not even my building in the photo! As for Matthew, we are colleagues. It was just a pat on the head that night! There really is nothing between us!”
Christine added with a laugh, “My close friends know that the rumors aren’t true. They’re always with me so they know what’s going on. That’s why they didn’t even call me to talk about it when the reports were published. But it’s okay! The reports are nonsense so there is really nothing to talk about. I’ll treat them as promotions for A Great Way to Care 2 <仁心解碼II>! But if this continues, I don’t think any many would dare to come near me! I definitely won’t have any rumors then!”
Although Christine has learned to accept the consequences of being an artist, she admitted that she had struggled through similar negative reports in the past, referring to her car-shaking rumor with Michael Tse last summer. Christine said, “I was really sad then. Nothing happened. There was no car-shaking, nor did we do anything inappropriate, but the reports made it seem so real, as if it all really happened. The worst of it was that even my mother believed it, thinking that I was deceived! Because of that, I became really depressed. I didn’t want to eat, couldn’t sleep, and couldn’t stop crying. After shooting A Great Way to Care 2, I realized that I had all the symptoms of a depressive disorder at the time.”
If it wasn’t for Leanne Li (李亞男) and their group of friends in the circle, Christine believed that she would have developed major depression by now. “When I was unhappiest, Leanne was there with me every day to hear me out. My friends from Canada also came and stayed with me, to talk with me, so my condition slowly improved. I didn’t even need to see a doctor.
“Now, when I am unhappy, or when I encounter similar unfounded reports, I will avoid reading them. I’ve learned to let it be. I am always talking with Leanne now. She and Wong Cho Lam (王祖藍) often give me advice. I’ve become their light bulb!”
