Fred Cheng (鄭俊弘) and Lesley Chiang (姜麗文), the daughter of veteran actor Paul Chun (秦沛), never publicly announced their relationship although they have been dating for several years. According to sources, Fred did not want to mix love gossip with his rising career at TVB, afraid that it would affect his status. As time passed, Lesley reportedly became dissatisfied with Fred’s career-over-love attitude. Tabloids claim the couple is now suffering a rocky relationship and has not contacted each other for days.
Over the past few days, Fred and Lesley were each spotted spending time with different people. On June 5 at around 9 p.m., Fred was spotted dining in Tai Hung with Sophia Wong (王嘉儀), who was also a singer from The Voice <超級巨聲>. They talked and laughed while searching for a restaurant on the streets. Sophia, who was in a tank top and skirt, did not seem to care about her image and tugged at her skirt in public. Fred looked around constantly to check for signs of reporters, and when he noticed them snapping pictures, he gave an awkward smile and wave. The pair then quickly hurried into a MTR station to avoid the cameras.
Meanwhile, Lesley uploaded a photo of dinner with Andy On (安志杰) via Weibo a few days ago. An hour later, she posted several photos of herself hugging Andy’s pet dog, Charlie. Netizens assumed from the photos that Lesley joined Andy in his house after their meal. One netizen even commented and asked whether the two are dating.
Fred: “Sophia and I Are Only Friends!”
At a function, Fred denied having a new girlfriend and insisted Sophia was only a friend. As soon as the reports surfaced, he gave Sophia a call to ensure she was not upset. Fred revealed, “I was scared she would be unhappy, but she was laughing [over the phone]. Regarding Lesley spending time at Andy’s house a few days ago, Fred expressed he did not know until he saw the reports.
