Fala Chen (陳法拉) discreetly acknowledged her breakup with her boyfriend of six years, Daniel Sit (薛世恆), at a promotional event for a beauty brand in Hong Kong today. The former TVB-managed star refused to elaborate on their current relationship status, but did reveal that she and Daniel had “reached a consensus” on how to handle the matter.
Shortly after Fala started her acting career in Hong Kong, she began dating the Neway heir. The couple was rumored to have secretly gotten married in 2008, with Fala and Daniel co-owning two properties in the United States. While the couple acknowledged dating each other, they never openly admitted to marriage.
Rumors of their impending breakup went rife last week, when a magazine source reported that a quarrel broke out between the couple when Daniel refused to invest in Fala’s artist management and talent scout venture. The altercation resulted in Fala’s abrupt decision to further her acting studies in New York this summer.
“A lot of what was written in that report weren’t true,” said Fala. “But a lot of things have changed recently. In my opinion, any kind of change is a good thing.”
Asked if her breakup with Daniel had something to do with her recent change, Fala laughed and said, “I knew that a magazine wrote about it last week, but I was in the United States at the time, so I didn’t look too much into it. However, my colleagues did take some photos [of the magazine report] and sent it to me. I immediately phoned Mr. Sit [about it]. We have discussed it together and reached a consensus about our relationship. We want to maintain our privacy. I did ask him if he wanted to make a [public] response today, but he said that wasn’t necessary. This is our matter and I ask for everyone to please give us the space to handle it ourselves.”
So is Fala currently single? Fala smiled, “All I can say is that we have reached a consensus. I know everyone is concerned about us. My friends as well, but I can assure everyone that I am really happy. In these past couple of months, I have lived my life with freedom and clarity. I haven’t had this feeling since my [university] years. I am very clear on how I want to walk my road. There have been many changes. It’s a blissful thing for someone to finally do what she wants to do.”
How would Fala describe her current state with Daniel? “A state of bliss,” said Fala. Asked if she considers herself to be starting her life anew, Fala nodded, “I suppose so.”
Fala described her current relationship with Daniel to be “good.” Asked if she considers Daniel a boyfriend or a good friend, Fala explained, “It’s impossible to describe two people’s relationship in just a few words, especially in a relationship that lasted so long. The relationship was true. I really don’t have the heart to define [our relationship]. I want to maintain the privacy and remain low-profile.”
Was it Fala who suggested the breakup? “I never said that!”
Fala stressed once again that her reasons for furthering her studies in New York had nothing to do with her relationship with the Neway Star heir. She stated, “Please do not enforce a set of values for female artists. I have the right to choose my own set of values. Do not sell fake stories and rape [my reputation]. I have worked hard. I find it disgusting that money is always linked with female artists. Many female artists I know are very hard-working.”
