Felix Wong’s Stepmother Considers Divorce to Prove She is Not a Golddigger

Felix Wong (黃日華) reportedly became estranged from his father after his stepmother’s name was bound to family assets. Although Mr. Wong has been seriously ill and struggling to pay his bills, Felix has not visited his 84-year-old father at the hospital and allegedly did not provide any financial assistance. His stepmother, Lau Wun Chan (劉煥珍), opened up about the situation recently. Suffering from severe financial burden and caretaker’s stress, she is even considering divorce to prove that she has no interest whatsoever in Mr. Wong’s assets.

Ms. Lau married Mr. Wong in 2009 and has been caring for him ever since. Despite rumors that she married him for his money, she clarified on February 24 that it was not the case. Originally from Mainland, she still owns property in China and knew nothing about Mr. Wong’s assets when she married him. She added that she has been on bad terms with Felix and his elder sister because the two believed that she wanted to claim their father’s property. “Mr. Wong previously shared a joint bank account with his eldest daughter. It had over $200,000 HKD. After we married, he removed his daughter’s name and added mine, so they are angry with me.”

Mr. Wong had also added her onto the property deed, which further fueled the family conflict. Stating that she had only seen Felix four times since her marriage, Ms. Lau is hoping her stepson would share the financial burden of caring for his elderly father.

While earlier reports claimed that Felix had not provided for his father at all, Ms. Lau clarified that Felix had given them $2,000 HKD when they married, and had provided $2,500 HKD monthly allowance over the past thirteen months. Even so, the money eventually stopped coming. “Felix Wong said he would not give even a cent to support a woman like me, even though I have never asked him for money.” Ms. Lau currently only has $2,300 HKD left to support both herself and Mr. Wong.

Shunned by her step-children and stressed from accusations that she is money-hungry, Ms. Lau seems to be on the brink of a breakdown and is about to leave everything behind. “I have already tried my best to care for [Mr. Wong]. If they want the house back, then let them have it! I can’t stand this anymore. I want to divorce and return to Mainland, and give their dad back to them!”

Felix Wong Will Not Respond

Despite his stepmother’s wild claims and protests that he is unfilial for not visiting his father at the hospital, Felix Wong chose to remain silent and guard his privacy. When the press tried to contact Felix for comment, his assistant, Miss Yuen, replied “Sorry, will will currently not respond on this matter.”

    Now that she says so I rather believe Felix. Because that statement is so drama queen it is so unbelievable. You don’t need divorce; just sign something to the effect that you want nothing.

      She has her name in the property and bank account. By divorcing him she still entitled for the asset. Plus by divorce and left everything behind, she doesnt need to take care of the dying husband. Plus which women in her right mind would marry nearly 80 years old man if not because of his money?

      Totally agree!!! Hopefully, a loan was not taken against the property, which is the most valuable. If so, where did all the money go?

      They’ve only been married for four (4) years, with 30+ years age-gap.

      Have all your ducks in a row and don’t jump in too quickly. The amount of money at hand is just so small. She have the right to take some of the dad’s asset because she’s married to him. Think of it as a live in maid to take care of him or a companion. I don’t think Felix have a close relationship with his dad or the rest of the Wong in the first place so the problem is not just the step mom.

      Sell the house to pay off his medical bills and find a job to pay for everyday expense. I’m sure there’s more to the story than what she say if it comes to result that the children totally cut off all ties with their dad. It’s not just Felix his siblings did the same.

        Where is the news that say all the siblings cut off the ties with the dad?
        Please show me the links.
        So far the news I see are Felix does not want to visit his father.

        And in the other article something about Felix was unhappy about $300,000 HKD down payment for his father flat with his step mom.
        No source have said that it was Felix pay the down payment. But let just said Felix pay the down payment, he should also let it go. It is only $300,000 HKD. The 84 year olds sick man is his biological father, who work to raise him when he was a baby. Even if Felix got his first acting job at age 18, it is still his father help raise him till then.

        And it just $300,000 HKD, the well know actor Felix during his prime time & thirty years in the entertainment industry, he make MILLIONS of HKD, way way more than what ever that down payment of his father’s flat.

        Anyways, we as readers only know what write in the news. I hope to hear Felix story side soon. He shouldn’t be quiet like this, the more quiet he is, the more of anti-fan will believe the news is true, LOL!

      Caring for an elder takes a lot of hard work. Added stress and money issue, it would not be a fun job. So what if they have an argument over the money, he should still visit his dad. Just make his case clear (don’t want to talk about money, his stand is still where it was), then go and visit him.

      Doesn’t matter how unhappy you are with your parents, at the end of the day, you should still visit them. And if you can’t, your wife and daughter should

    Doesn’t this just prove she is a gold digger? She divorce him because he doesn’t have any money to support them both. She is leaving him after she is done with him. Plus is possible to sign an agreement where she would not get any of his asset when something happens to him

    Smart woman. Obviously she wants to divorce him. No strings attached and she can back out of the marriage and not care for him anymore. But she is still entitled to property and money.

    if she really want the property and money, why do she bother so much and put so many effort to save him? she can just wait till he past away, and then she can claim everything because she already have her name in the property and account.so i believe she honestly cares about her husband.

        yes she can sell their property for paying medical bills and then go back to china,and let felix care after his father,thats the last what she can do for him.but still i dont understand why felix hate for his stepmother is greater than the love for his father.i dont think this is what felix father want to see.

    There’s still a lot behing closed doors. Compared to the incident with TVB, Felix is keeping very quiet regarding this issue and just letting the other side talk. That says a lot.

    Also, why are they only targetting Felix when there are other siblings?

    • MW replied:

      Because it’s all about the money. And, Felix is the goldmine that she can use the media to apply pressure. Now that she mentions divorce, maybe they should consider selling the property to pay off the bills (hospital, whatever, etc.). Then, maybe send the father to a senior care home. Much less stressful.

      Boyfriend, husband, broke up, divorce, can find another. Son, can have another son.
      But father, there only ONE father, can’t never be replace.
      If I was in Felix case, I will At Least visit my father in the hospital. After see my father get Well and return home, then I will dispute what ever difference I have with the heck step mom.

        I really feel bad for your husband and your son to have a wife and mother like you.

        Your nuclear family should always be first and foremost your priority. I understand your comment about the husband and divorce, but what about your son?

        If your son goes away or passes away, you can “just have another son?”

        Wow. I am blown away by your filial piety.

        I can see what Leilafan is saying. Some people put all of the importance onto their own family after they have their own family that they tend to forget and neglect other important people in their life and the people who accompanied them before they had their own family. I feel that of course your own family like your husband/wife, kids are important but you should also remember your parents,siblings and other important people in your life as we’ll.I find it sad that some just care for their own family only and do not give a care about anyone else in their lives. Your parents are very important and once you lose them,you can never get them back. I lost my father years ago so I personally would encourage Felix to see his father before he regrets it for life.

  8. Trini says:

    I know what is going on is frustrating for Felix, but as a son, he still should not cut off contact with his dad. His dad is his dad, no matter what, and when a love one is in a state that death is inevitable, forgiveness is very important. When his dad dies, it is too late to say he is sorry. Say it now, in the living years, or time.

    Even if the wife divorces her husband, she is still entitled to assets in the will. This divorce talk are words from a crafty drama queen.

    Ms. Lau is going to abandon the man she claims to love so easily? Why can’t they all agree to sell the property and use the money for Mr. Wong’s financial bills?

    Any children who estrange from the parent over money are greedy and horrible. They can be upset at the father but to cut off all contacts and even when he’s extremely ill over money is pathetic.

    Translation…” Now that his medical fees have exhausted his savings and he is broke, I no longer feel the urge to stay married to him since it will end up costing me money. I will end up with less than I started with and that isn’t cool.”

    Way to ditch him when he most needs you just to prove a point that we can all see through lol.
    What a class act. This just reinforces the belief that she married him for the money.

    Me-thinks she doth protest too much.

    All she needs to do is take hername off of everything if she means what she says.

    If Felix still doesn’t make amends than it’s either something he has to work on, or there is more to the story than is published and the rift will require even more work.
    They (Wong family) seriously just need some peace and she needs to stop trying to drag his name through the mud. Poor guy is having a rough time lately and doesn’t need some gold digging drama queen to stir things up.

    aren’t there people in this world who would never marry someone who has children no matter how grown up because it insults yourslef with how you will be perceived and it also disturbs the children no matter their age so out of respect for yourself and for strangers – the children – probably don’t become a second/third/etc wife. Just be friends who date or something. Marriage should not be demeaning.

    Seriously, though he can be fiery at times, Felix has such a good image in the entertainment circle on his attitude to older actors (even kelefes) for nearly 30 years that I find it hard to believe that he would treat his father and stepmother as such unless he had a really a good reason.

    No one knows what happened behind closed doors. I don’t think Felix is a person who loves money or he would have invested all his money in business like Michael Miu rather than just act.

    Maybe his father abused Felix and his mother in the past and he cannot find it in his heart to forgive him. Forgiveness can not be forced.

    Anyhow, I do kind of stand by Felix and think that the stepmother is just trying to play for sympathies. If she was sincere, then she would divorce him quietly and then stand by her husband until the very end. Wonder if she got paid for her interview.

    It doesn’t matter if the stepmother is a gold digger, but Felix should’ve performed better as a son. Like it or not, this is his own father who must’ve provided for him during his youth since there were never any news about his father mistreating him. I am disappointed if Felix just cut the strings because he hated the stepmom. It’s his father’s right to marry whomever he wanted including gold diggers.

      Well said, thumb up to you.
      Many actress married old men for money, including handicap old men still can get pretty wife because they have money.
      I don’t like gold-diggers, but I am also in no position to dictate who should married who, overall it is their lives not mine.

      I can hate the stepmom all I want, but being a filial son, it is my Father health that is more important. After all my father raise me since I was a baby till 18.
      Felix doesn’t have to pay ALL of the medical bills, but at least come see your father one time doesn’t hurt. No news of his father mistreat him for the 30 years that Felix in the entertainment industry, so it can be believe that his father did rise him and feed him and treat him well. Trust me, Felix is famous, if those reporters can dig out anything bad about his father, they would already make headline out of it, just like Ada’s mother case.

      I don’t know Hong Kong, but here in USA, anyone who is over age 65, they get free healthcare, free doctors, free medicine, even free hospital treatments. Now, with this Obamacare law passed, you don’t need to be 65 to get free healthcare, it expand to all those that poor (make below certain income) can qualify to get free healthcare.
      Healthcare in USA, Canada is great, universal heathcare, those who poor are covered by the government.
      Hong Kong was once British rule, I’m sure the Hong Kong government will help out those elderly who do not have enough money to pay for medical bills.

      Anyways, back to topic. Felix should at least visit his father. Please don’t wait till it too late, you will regret it later on.

      This link have the picture of his sick father, the old man really look sick. I’m sure your father will be very happy to see you, it not about money, it about you show you care for him.

    I fail to see why people think they are ‘entitle’ to their parent’s money and/or property after their death.
    In this case, it seems Felix and his sister is angry with their father becoz he married someone younger, added her name to a bank account and house title. All I can see it’s greed. It’s not Felix’s money or his sister’s. How his father want to spend it is his own business.
    Felix is implying the step mother is a gold digger married his father for money. How is that different from him having his eyes on the money and property?
    Let’s put it this way, the father was 79 when he remarried. He’s in the stage of his life where he needs a bit of care. Do we see Felix offering to look after his father in his own home? So his father has found someone to take care of him in his old age. Whether is love or convenience, doesn’t matter. He is living the life he wants and we shouldn’t judge him or her.

      I also don’t see a problem with having the step mother’s name added to the bank account.
      She is living with the father and looking after the day to day need. She needs to have access to the funds. How troublesome it would be to have to contact the daughter everytime and whenever they need money to buy grocery, travel by taxi to medical appointments or pay for GP. Marry couple do have joint name bank accounts.
      As to adding her name to the property title, maybe it’s a reassurance from his perspective that his wife will be taken care off if something happens to him. Again, normal people do that.
      An giving $2,500 a month to his father… that’s less than what a maid get in a month! Even if Felix doesn’t accept her as step mother, he should be thankful that someone is looking after his father 24/7.

      I just feel that if Felix and his father actually had a good relationship before this woman showed up in their lives, he should be the better person and get over it. I am not saying that Felix needs to support this woman and her kids or even acknowledge she’s his stepmother but at least pay his father’s medical bills and give enough money to ensure that this woman would be taking care of his father properly.

      I’m sure both Felix and his sister both have their own family and their own lives so they cannot consistently see and take care of their father. Even if this woman is a gold digger, at least she’s giving him companionship that he lacks from his own children.

      If they care so much about the property, they can sign an agreement for the property in exchange for a monthly allowance to take care of their father and take care of medical bills.

    “Ms. Lau clarified that Felix had given them $2,000 HKD when they married, and had provided $2,500 HKD monthly allowance over the past thirteen months. Even so, the money eventually stopped coming.”

    Sounds like Felix has been a good/filial son. With his own wife’s recent health issues, maybe Felix is overloaded with responsibilities? A good mother/stepmother would be more understanding, less selfish and not see the son/Felix as an ATM.

    Here’s what i don’t understand .. The elder Mr. Wong is “struggling to pay his bills” yet the 2nd Mrs. Wong is considering divorce to “prove that she has no interest whatsoever in Mr. Wong’s assets.” and that she’s no gold digger. What asset if he’s struggling financially?

      “What asset if he’s struggling financially?”

      Maybe the HK property (which we all know can be very expensive) that now also has the stepmother’s name on the title? This may be the “key” point of contention since it may be the most valuable and also primarily funded by Felix? The other stuff is nothing in comparison. Who wants to pay $300,000 HKD down payment on a flat/house and make monthly mortgage payments for years only to have it taken by someone (with no blood relation) who have been around for only less than five (5) years?
