Gaile Lok is Broke After Divorce

What is life like after divorcing Leon Lai (黎明)?  When Gaile Lok’s (樂基兒) was still married to Leon, she was frequently lavished with gifts, but now it looks like her lifestyle reverted back to her pre-marital days, with her staying at cheap hotels in order to save money.

Forced to Live a Simpler Lifestyle

When Gaile signed divorce papers to end their four-year marriage, it was revealed that she would not be receiving any alimony from Leon in the exchange for her full freedom. Due to the relationship fallout, Gaile will also not be receiving jobs from Leon’s manager, and will have to rely on her own work to earn an living. An insider said, “Gaile is forced to play the friendship card and contact old brand managers in order to get more jobs.”

In June, Gaile was spotted at a bar in Central, Hong Kong with a female friend. When it was her turn to order, she reluctantly ordered an all-you-can-eat platter with white wine for $188 HKD and openly exclaimed profanities toward the high prices. Eventually, the pair went shopping at brand name stores where Gaile had her eyes on a pair of sandals that cost over $10, 000 HKD, but awkwardly walked away when a sales associate approached them.

However, Gaile’s lifestyle was not always like this. During the midst of Leon and Gaile’s divorce, Leon arranged to have Gaile stay at the lovely Four Seasons Hotel along with her own chauffeur and assistants. However, without Leon to cover the expenses now, Gaile is forced to stay at a hotel that only charges $700 HKD a night.

When asked about her new boyfriend, Cruz, Gaile responded, “My love life is personal and I don’t want to comment. Leon and I have already broken up and who I go out with is nobody’s business!”

        Where there cheating involved or just cheap rumors.
        Perhaps Ms. Lok wanted to something else than being forced to bend down, she don’t need private beaches to wear her bikini or the need of a yacht to cryout loud in the middle of no where. Broke not as she still have her personal assets as quick credit id she so desire.

        IT prove that she is not a gold digger,
        she did not marry someone for money,
        like her guts

        Excuse me Kolo, but this was really uncalled for. It was also really mean because I may be dumb but I wouldn’t go attack dd about burger prices. If you didn’t know already, I actually like dd, a lot.

        Though Trini and Kaboom don’t get along with dd, I doubt they would stoop that low to take a jab at dd using burger prices.

        Please don’t try to fuel the flames. Thanks.

      Maybe that was how it was when she did not have money. I know some people like that. When they are poor or don’t have much money, they are really thrifty. However, once they have money, they spend it a lot more than many people would. Maybe that is how she is???

    I highly doubt it. She may not have received alimony, but perhaps she received a one time payment as settlement for not dishing any secrets of Leon. After all a tell all book of a very famous former pop idol is a money maker, even if it is a FORMER pop idol.

    I doubt she didn’t get any money from Leon. Just right after splitting with Leon, she was on vacation for such a long while. Also, I read ‘Gaile is allegedly ready to fund Cuz’s (with cap) dream of living in a beach house in Bali and running a diving/surfing training centre.’

  7. aptos says:

    Gaile must have been naive as she probably got sweet-talked into the relationship by Cruz who just wanted a piece of her and whatever money she had at the time which was provided to her by Leon or his connections. If she did indeed did not ask for alimony thinking that Cruz was true to her, she will find out that she messed up big time as Cruz is a leach and will bail out on her once her money runs out and can’t support him.

    I guess she knows she has to sacifice all the luxuries when she decides to divorce Leon. It shows how desperate she was to be away from Leon, the marriage must be very bad.

    • HeTieShou replied:

      I have a feeling that Leon may not have given her much freedom and that was what she wanted. THis is also a good example to show women that they should rely on themselves more and be more independent instead of thinking that you can marry a rich/well off guy and then be set for life. Life is truly unpredictable…

      • bloom replied:

        Hi HeTieShou, a lot of women especially the celebrities would like to fish for rich men. Most of them I would say. But, I personally feel Gaile Lok is not that type of person, she has “character” I think she yearns for true love, freedom more than money. I guess the relationship with Leon was so unbearable. She is perhaps those women that want the attention & time to be together not like those ppl like Jackie Chan’s wife or even Andy Lau’s wives which I feel it was a huge sacrifices to remain unknown that they were actually the women married to these stars. Anyhow, I hope Gaile will find her happiness. I mean when we’re poor, we’ve to readjust our finances accordingly. When you’ve more maybe you can be more spendthrift

      • HeTieShou replied:

        Hi Bloom,
        I agree with what you are saying. But I do wonder about Gaile’s intentions behind marrying Leon. As you have said, you said that she seems like the type that wants true love and freedom rather than money. If that is the case, then I wonder why she married Leon in the first place. I am guessing she should have known him well enough to see how he is and would he give her the freedom that she wants and if he loved her and if she loved him,etc…As a celeb, of course many of them have a higher lifestyle than we do and would want a rich/well off guy, especially if they are not that successful themselves. Therefore, I must say that there is no doubt that she with Leon partially for the money but then again who does not to some extent? But the big question is, is that all that she went for??? I also wondered if she even dated him long enough before marrying him to know how he is?? I think that is why many are wondering if she was after him for money only. Jackie and Andy’s wives have sort of different cases so I do not think we should compare them with Leon and Gaile’s case.

    no – if they divorced then they were never in love which means they both had perspective at the time of divorce so Gaile Lok probably has a LOT of money and is just putting on a show of having nothing (he had to have paid her for confidentiality otherwise there’s no reason for her to keep quiet if she has nothing to lose if she breaks that) so she is saying things cuss-mouthed in public so the reporters will be sure to help her spread the image of being penniless – BECAUSE there are so many predators in Asia and she is female and alone.

      To Cleo, we’re just speculating & discuss about how we felt. We dont know what actually happened to them, whether Gaile was paid a sum of money after the divorce.

      It doesnt mean that when you divorced someone you didnt love that person. It’s not that true, that really depends what was your intention of marrying that person. Some ppl married for money, there are ppl married because of love, there are some married because of matched marriage etc etc…. They could have loved each other, but the love has changed. Some ppl are lucky that their love grows after marriage, but, some are not that lucky. I guess that really depends on both the person.

        if it changes, it’s not love. if it’s corn, it’s not water. if it’s a dog, it’s not a cat, etc.

        many people call whatever they are doing “love” without respecting the definition of the word. I wonder if Aaron Kwok and his ex “loved” each other? because he certainly doesn’t what happens to her now. I don’t see him making sure she doesn’t walk in empty parking garages by herself or that there is no one hiding in the stairwell outside her apartment door.

        PUHLEEZE let’s not support their interest in beautifying their reality. It is what it is.

        Does it look like Gaile Lok would sell herself to save Lai Ming’s life? Did it EVER look like that? Maybe Carina Lau would do that for Wai Zhai – I don’t know – who knows. Would Michelle Reis and Julian Ho die for each other?

    Hmm….Why is everyone hating on her? Is it because she is the female in the relationship that she is getting the bad rap? She wanted a simple life to begin with and I wondered why she was really wasting her time with someone that was over 10-15 years older than her. This woman was a model before she married him and she probably made a lot of money BEFORE she married him. I hope she can find someone that respects her values and loves her for who she is.

      Hi Chuchu, not all models are rich & the same applies to celebrities. They look nice on the outside, some really struggle. Hong Kong is a place where ppl are so materialistic, they looked at your clothes before they judge you. As a celebrities, I’m sure a big part of their monies have to be put aside for clothing, an assistant, etc etc. She could be just average before she got married to Leon. Now, she could be back to square 1 that’s all.
