Fennie Yuen (袁潔瑩) was seen cozying up to her new female assistant, who was then photographed going back to Fennie’s apartment late at night. Fennie reportedly sought comfort in her assistant after failing to reconcile her broken romance with ex-girlfriend, Yuen Ka Yan (阮嘉欣).
The 44-year-old actress suffered a rollercoaster love life with various men, most notably with music composer Alan Tsui (徐日勤), before settling down in a long-term relationship with Yuan Ka Yan in 2005. However, they parted ways last year, and Ka Yan immediately found a new girlfriend. Fennie focused all her energy on her new Chinese beauty salon. When her beauty salon flopped and closed down, Fennie eventually turned to her assistant, who provided continuous support.
Even though Fennie’s current schedule is not busy, she is often seen with her assistant. The woman dressed in a masculine manner and brings Fennie lunchboxes on filming sets. She did not mind riding in the van with Fennie despite her smoking habit.
The assistant, dubbed as a Yuen-Ka-Yan lookalike, was introduced to Fennie through a mutual friend. The pair got along very quickly, and Fennie eventually told the assistant to quit her current job and work for her instead.
Although Fennie failed to respond to the new rumours, she stated, “My love life is currently like myself – it’s taking a break, and I’ve been on break for two years already! I don’t know if it’s because I’m older now, but I’m not as invested in a relationship anymore. Every time I begin a relationship, I think it’s for a lifetime, but it always ends as a breakup. Breakups are really painful, I like the dating experience, but I’m scared of the consequences of parting ways.”
Fennie’s Business Slump
Together with a doctor of Chinese medicine, Fennie invested roughly $2 million HKD in her Chinese beauty salon. Acting as the salon’s spokesperson, Fennie confidently stated that she wished to breakeven within two years of business operations. Unfortunately, the business was not successful and closed two years later.
Since the salon business ate away a lot of Fennie’s savings, she had no choice but to return to filming. However, Fennie refuse to acknowledge that the business failure affected her life. She had invested in real estate in her early career and profited nearly $10 million HKD after she sold the property. Fennie said that she is satisfied with her current lifestyle.
