Gregory Lee Cries Uncontrollably Over Shirley Yeung’s Break-up Decision

Gregory Lee (李泳豪) arrived at TVB City at 7:30 PM to film The Boxer King <拳王>. Gregory’s expression appeared numb due to his ex-girlfriend, Shirley Yeung’s (楊思琦) break-up announcement before the media today.  Accompanied by his father, Lee Ka Ding (李家鼎),Gregory could not help but sob, “I don’t know what happened! We have always been fine. I could not get in touch with Shirley today. I don’t know why she told the press that we broke up. The day before, we spoke on the phone and we were still boyfriend and girlfriend status!”

Gregory continued to cry, “I don’t know what happened! How come she made such a decision? We have been together for many years and both of us sacrificed.” Gregory could not stabilize his emotions and requested that the interview be halted.

Earlier, Shirley noted that Gregory’s parents were aware of the break-up decision. Gregory’s father, Lee Ka Ding, cursed emotionally, “She is [expletive] crazy! I don’t know what happened! We were planning for their wedding! Last week, we had dinner with her.”

Allegedly, there were rumors that there was a third party named Andy may have entered Shirley and Gregory’s relationship. Coincidentally, Andy left a victorious message on his blog, “Finally, an 11-year friendship became fortuitous! I will make the greatest effort to care and love her! I believe I can make her happy! ”

Jayne: It may be true that Shirley fell for a third party, Andy. I’m not sure who Andy is, but it appears he is not an artist. Maybe photos will emerge in tonight’s newspapers.

My assessment is that Shirley agreed to marriage with Gregory due more to the 9 years they have been dating. She possibly felt there was an obligation to marry Gregory, who was obviously still very much in love with her. However, Shirley had cold feet that last minute and either she walks now or she may marry Gregory, someone whom she may have “fell out of love with” and regret later in life. So complicated…I feel sorrow for Gregory at this moment.

    What a slap in the face for Gregory to find out through the media of their break-up. I feel really bad for him but hope that he realizes she’s not the only tree in the forest.

    In the other article:

    Shirley said, “We decided to break-up several months ago. I decided to announce it now because I wanted the situation to settle down first. It is easier for me to discuss it this way.”

    So, who is lying?

      Shirley is lying(my opinion.) judging from what the old man just said, they just had dinner with her last week. why would he lie about that. he just sounded shock as Greggory himself at what Shirley did. “Crazy” is the word indeed.

        I think that Shirley is lying too. If Gregory’s dad is that upset, then there is a higher chance that she is the one that lied. It is strange how they just had dinner last week but now all of a sudden she announced that they have just broken up….

    Hmmm, I wondered too if there was a third party in the relationship because if it was other problems such as family or career, communication, etc, it probably would have come up earlier in their relationship, and they seemed to have overcome all those obstacles. The only thing would probably be a third party involvement or Shirley is just having pre-marital breakdown and being a runaway bride. So sad.

      how can it be wedding jitters if it was 10 yrs in the making? third party just won her over in the end despite the investment on Greg’s side/family/and both together. wonder if Shirley’s new guy looks like and is he that much better that she’s cutting all ties and relations with his side up or maybe wild speculation here but she’s pregnant with the new guys baby? guess only she would know.

    damn, how can she be with him so long only to dump him just before they’re getting married? harsh!

    pity this guy. i don’t much impression of Greggory before but ppl kept saying she was too good for him, which i think reiterated in her mind and made her really feel she really was too good for him even he loved her deeply. hope Andy keeps his promise and not dump Shirley for another girl after. you know how that goes. ppl are fickle whether 1 yr down, 2 yrs, etc then day they just leave without a word. lesson to be learned. Shirley is irresponsible in this, give the old ex some closure.

      I agree and feel so bad for Gregory. I am just still so shocked that they have broken up. I thought that they would get married after being together for so many years. Maybe the fact that others kept on thinking that SHirley was too good for him did get to her?? or that Andy guy really won her over??? Who knows and we can only guess and speculate. Hopefully Shirley made the right decision,but she should give Gregory some closure…

    I think this is a surprise news for Gregory and Shirley probably suddenly broke the news at the event. My take is, he wants to marry her, she got cold feet or most probably she is tired of him and if I may cruelly say so, he is of no help to her career and she has bigger fish to fry.

        What does G Label means? I believe she has someone pursuing her even during her relationship with Gregory too. Maybe I’m the only one who always thought Shirley is too good for Gregory in term of career and luck. Pity Gregory though for getting the shock news from his “gf” shirley.

        Yes, only if the guy is richer. Don’t blame her for moving forward when passion dies but I disagree with the method. Surely she could have told him privately before announcing it publicly? Kinda cruel. If a man did that, surely he would have been condemned as cruel and heartless.

    • Veejay replied:

      Thanks Funn for your explanation. However, I agree half with you the part where Shirley shouldn’t announced her breakup with Gregory publicly as it will hurt Gregory deeply and even will made him lost face (embarrassed) in the public. Shirley could have her own reasons to announced it to the world, it could be a)Gregory was too stubborn to accept the truth of the breakup, won’t listen and let her go b)Gregory might harm her physically when she tries to breakup with her in person (some men are violent when it comes to breakup) c)Shirley’s intention to announced to public was to show to “someone” she’s interested in by cutting off her relationship with Gregory.

      The news about their breakup may sound harsh for Gregory but we still don’t know the main reason lies between their problem. Gregory could be a liar and bad guy which hurt Shirley most until she made such decision.

      But at the point now, Shirley will be judged by public for making such an immature decision with intetion to caused embarrassement to the Lee’s family and Gregory. I hope Shirley will clarify the breakup soon so public won’t start making bad judgement on her. I honestly feel that Shirley isn’t a gold digger as label by others, a woman wouldn’t be with a man who earns lesser than her for 9 years!

        I agree with you…if Shirley was a gold digger…she wouldnt have spent the last 9 years with him. And she also admitted to their relationship just when she was starting to get promoted by TVB.

        I don’t think Shirley is a gold-digger too, however, I don’t think Gregory is the abusive type.

        Actually, I was very surprised that Shirley openly admitted that she broke up with Gregory since most celebrities are not open about their relationships. So I assume she openly admitted their relationship in the past when she first started dating?

        Gregory may still be very in love with Shirley and doesn’t want to accept the fact that they’ve broken up, but I find it a bit weird for Shirley to say that they’ve broken up a few months ago when the news of her dining with her bf only came out a while ago. And they were happy too.

        I think there is a third party. Waiting to see who he is.

        I wish there was follow-up on this news, especially from Shirley on why she claimed that they’ve been broken up for months, yet Gregory claimed that they were still bf-gf status the day before.

        Agree with HTS, the whole scene doesn’t look like a PR stunt to me. I saw the clip of the interview yesterday on tv, Gregory was crying non-stop until the interview had to be called off. Poor Gregory but what can he expect? dating a MS HK’s champion is like dating a time bomb where most Ms HK with titles will usually pursued by rich millionaires guys. Although Shirley isn’t as pretty as Michelle Reis, maggie cheung and other ms hks, Shirley’s status in showbiz is still way more famous compare to Gregory.

        I had the same feelings as you Veejay. I somehow had a feeling that Shirley would want to marry someone that is more successful and well off then her. In a sense I am a bit shocked about their break up, but not that much in a way since I bet Shirley may be always getting the idea from the public, that she can do better than Gregory. That is so sad but true… I guess it is sort of traditional thinking that the guy should be more successful and make more money than the girl. Maybe Shirley did not feel comfortable being with someone not as successful as her even though she did love him in the past?? No one knows…

        This would be a really stupid PR stunt since Gregory is a no name celebrity for XX years and its not exactly doing favours for Shirley. And if they do get back together and get married, what’s the point in getting publicity? TVB isn’t going to promote either of them anyway.

  8. Jayne says:

    I have friends who met and dated in college. Their relationships lasted for many years, in which one person’s passsion in the relationship fizzled. Love had somehow turned into an obligation, where she did not want to hurt him and they did share a happy past together. However, she was no longer attracted to him and wondered if this was just how their relationship was destined to be. They planned to get married and even announced to family and friends. That same year, she met another man, who changed her perspective on love, that love should be liberating and not a responsibility. She called off the wedding despite protests from both families and had the hardest time breaking up with him.

    There is another friend in which he has straying eyes for years. He claimed he lost passion and was no longer attracted to his girlfriend of many years. They broke up and reconciled. He valued her personality and felt he can not find a better woman. They got married, but his expectation on love has evolved in which he valued the companionship and friendship more than the passion.

    The experience of my first friend reminds me very much of Shirley’s situation. Shirley and Gregory dated for a long time and her needs may have evolved. She may have said yes to his marriage proposal due to obligation and not wanting to hurt him. Yet, facing marriage very soon, she either had to make the choice of hurting Gregory or choosing her own happiness. In the end, we must do what is best for ourselves because if she has doubts now, then what will happen to their marriage later on? Her mistake was likely that she cared for Gregory too much, where her break-up decision should have come soon and done in private.

    If Andy is the third party, he should have better sense than to blog about his victory right now. Very insensitive.

    I do feel that Gregory is hurt the most right now. But better to end things early than to marry someone who is not totally in love with you. Gregory, I support you! It really breaks my heart to see a man cry.

    • HeTieShou replied:

      Thanks for sharing your stories Jayne and that is how many people are these days. I think it also depends on what stage you are in your life so it once again, the timing is just so important. Marriages just take so much work to maintain and keep the bond strong.

      People can be happily married for many many years and one day just want to divorce so you never know what can happen in the future. I feel bad for Gregory and maybe it is better that things end now rather than get married and then have to divorce.

      One of my close friends is very lucky and only dated one guy throughout her whole life who is her high school sweetheart. They dated for 13 years and got married in 2005 and are just as happy as ever. I feel that my friend is lucky and many hope for that in life, but sadly that doesn’t happen often…

      Jayne, a friend of mine has the same experience too.

      She went to Japan to study and get into a relationship with this guy quickly; they were always there for each other in a foreign land far from their hometown and love just blossomed when you care.

      However after 4-5 years, when it’s the time to graduate and the door for marriage opens, suddenly my friend confessed to us(the highschool buddies) that she doesn’t feel the love and passion anymore. She doesn’t hate him, but she said after spending so much time with him and semi-cohabiting she feels that he’s not “the one”. She struggled inside her own to break off with the guy because she still has care and respect for him, and she knows he still love her; she didn’t want to hurt him.

      In the end, she braved up and ended the relationship even though she was viewed negatively by some of her friends in Japan; but she said she don’t want to live without passion next to him forever. She was 23.

        Masaharu,
        Thanks for sharing your friend’s story. After a certain number of years in dating, it’s natural and somewhat expected to think about the couple’s future together. If there is no intended future, such as eventual marriage, and one partner does want to get married, then it may indeed be the best thing to end the relationship. This way, one party doesn’t feel his/her time was spent on a relationship which had no future.

        I think it is also very, very difficult for high school or college sweethearts to stay together into adulthood and marry each other. I have a few friends who did that, but it’s truly difficult as people may grow up and grow apart, especially when you meet in your late teen years.

    If you break up with someone because you no longer feel the fire/passion in him/her, then you’ll never be able to find a long-lasting mate. Passionate love is not permanent; it will fade over time. A couple’s relationship survives because their passionate love for each other has evolved into unconditional love, and they understand that principle of love.

      thankyou for your thought. my outlook is the same.

      i also enjoyed Jayne’s second story, that love transitioned to companionship but a wise person person will understood and accepted it, embracing the inevitable change. not saying her friend in the first story is wrong but second one show ppl either adapt or dont because love is not all rainbow and butterflies all the time. good if it can bloom into lifelong friendship and company.

        Many people’s marriages do transition into companionship and if you are willing accept it, then your marriage will last. However, lasting is one thing but whether you are happy or not is another thing. You grow with a person and they grow with you. It is the same thing with friendship as well…

      I agree with you Cloud! I think that is how a lot of “marriages” are today. It always starts out with the passionate type of love, but that usually fades with time and becomes more of a companionship and friendship type of love. That all exists in a relationship as we well. You are friends with that person and so many other things. You grow and change with that person and if you can’t complement each other then you will grow apart.

    I don’t think anyone thinks badly of Shirley for breaking up w/ him, but she should not have lied about it or done it in public. She should respect him and the time they spent together to have done it in a kinder way.

    Hope Gregory see the positive side of this.. you never want to be w/ anyone who just sees you as a responsibility. Now he can concentrate on his career and move on to a girl that truly wants to be w/ him.

    And the fact that this Andy did such an insensitive thing makes me think badly of him… Shirley may not be moving on to a better man.

      I am not too sure that no one thinks badly of her. I am sure that mainly do, including Gregory’s parents. If I were his parents, I would be really upset if she dumped my son in public like that. That is just disrespectful to him and their 9 year relationship.

      Whoever this “Andy” guy is, he doesn’t seem like a great guy for doing something so insensitive like that… I wonder if Shirley is making the right decision by moving on to someone like him??? Only time will tell…

    It’s good that Gregory is a nice guy because I just read another article recently about this Korean singer that was stabbed to death 65 times!! She was in a similar situation with Gregory and Shirley. I heard that she was going to marry her boyfriend(not from the circle), but at some point in their relationship she wanted to break up with him so he took out a knife and stabbed her 65 times… Boy, some guys can be really scary and deadly…

    A runaway bride?

    When I read the statement Shirley made yesterday about the breakup, I feel she was dumped (her tone of voice). But now she dumped him?

    However, I don’t feel against her.

    I have a friend. She was planned to get married with a guy that all of her family like. His family also thought of her as a daughter-in-law. Their relationship was 14 years, from when they was in highschool. You can imagine how tight it was. But in the last meeting before the wedding where she met all of his family and relatives, she also met his cousin. Love at the first sign. The cousin of the guy brought a gf with him but after the dinner, they both dumped their partners and be together. They got married (my friend and cousin of the guy) just after this dinner 5 weeks. The ex-bf of my friend was truly shocked. His 14 years relationship lost in one day to a guy that she didn’t met before. The whole families of both sides also felt shocked. Until now, the guy hasn’t forgiven to my friend. My friend also felt guilty to him but when I asked her why she did so, she said that if give her another chance, she would do the same. Yes, now she has a happy small family. However, if asked her she felt guilty or not, she still said yes. She avoided to see the ex-bf and his family (still have to see them as her current husband is the close relative to the ex).

    Maybe my friend’s case is similar to Shirley’s. The inside story, only they themselves can answer.

However, it is hard to not to… I guess that is what you call “fate”, you can be with someone for many many years and it can end up just ending, while you can just meet someone at first sight and then just end up together. Your friend’s story really sounds like Barbie Hsu’s love story. Is your friend currently happy?? How long have they been married?? I am just so curious and thanks for sharing..

        3 years. They has a little princess now. From what she told me, she is happy. Her current husband is a good guy. Her ex is also a good guy. She is a lucky girl. However, 2 good persons might be not together.

        She said she thought many times before giving the breakup decision to her ex. Compare, think, etc. but then she followed the call of her heart. Maybe she has a right decision, maybe not, but since she dun feel regret, she is right.

        Thanks so much for sharing and I am glad that she is happy. She is lucky to have 2 great guys love her but she had to pick one. I actually admire your friend for being so brave for doing something that many would not dare to in order to find her own happiness. I totally agree with you 2 good people can’t always be together. Glad to know that she is still happy.Hopefully, her risky and last minute decision was for the best. Did her ex move on and is he married now?

        One of my former friends married a guy that she just liked since she had no other choice. She called to tell me that she was engaged but she said things that did not shock me since she hardly even new the guy. She just said that she wanted to get married because he was a good person and that her biological clock was ticking. I wanted to tell her that just because a person is a good person doesn’t mean that you will be happy together.

      Thanks for sharing your story about your friend. Getting married after 5 weeks is very shocking. Perhaps after spending so many years with her ex-boyfriend and had already considered marriage earlier, she knew what she was looking for. It is very difficult to hurt someone you had once loved and someone who loves you back. Hopefully her ex moved on as well. In situations like these, it is very hard to be on speaking terms again, especially for her ex who was somewhat jilted at the altar.

    I’m sorry but this guy was one of the best child star tvb ever had, his brother was awesome as well. There are few child stars that stood out for me, the kid on heros something condor was one, Gregory and his bother was the others, and the chubby little girl…I don’t know her name. They are all great child actors, for whatever reason never got promoted was they got older. Gregory is a good looking guy, he has nothing to be ashamed off, Shirley on the other hand only has her cuteness and nothing much else. I hope him all the best.

      Do you guys remember child actor Fung Chi Feng?? He was my most favorite child actor. I heard that he is married now as well and hopefully he is happy. I think Gregory will find someone that will really love him in the future…

    And to answer the question of the admin. I do not mind married a man who make less than me, in fact my husband is now we are both working to help out the family expenses. Not only that, we both every month pay expenses equally, split in half, since we both work and make about same amount, so we both pay the bills equally. When we were dating in college, on our dates we also split the bills or one time he paid, one time I paid. This is the western American culture style, it is not always the “men” who have to paid for ladies date and expense. Ofcourse when go on date, men feel that they need to pay, but if you are the girlfriend insist on want to split the bills, then nothing is wrong with that. My boyfriend/husband works to make money with his hands, they are his sweats money. If any women really love their man, help out your man sometimes, don’t just sit back let him pay.
    And ofcours, this is up to each individual personally and character. There are independent women out there, and there are women who enjoy their men money. It all up to individual taste, what ever float your boat, no rights or wrong, just different living styles and preference.

      If you made more than him, would you mind paying more than him instead of an equal amount every month? I also don’t think you need to equally pay for everything and be that precise in the amount that you pay. If you are married, then your money should be his and his money should be yours.

      • LeilaFan replied:

        This has nothing to do with his money or my money. I giving you an examples of western culture and being independent person instead of sit back and spend your spouse money. And again, read my last sentence OK, different people, different style, different lving, different thinking. What ever float your boat is fine.
        If I make more than him, I am willing to pay the expenses more than him.
        Because my son and my husband are MORE IMPORTANT than any money in this world can ever be. When you be a mother and a wife, you will understand.

        Where in my post did I write precise calculating of expense money? It make perfect sense if 2 married people make about the same amount of income who helps pay the bills to raise the family together. Ask any American around you and they tell you the same thing.

        And I agree with you that you don’t need to pay equally for everything.

        Your translations of Lee Ka Ding’s statement before the press was hilarious. Orientaldaily only attributed one expletive to his statement…didn’t know he actually cursed so much. He indeed does come across as a formidable father-in-law.

        It’s just a rough translation. Since english and chinese sentence structure is different, I cannot place the expletive accurately. I try my best liao.

  22. Ah K says:

    OMG!!! Wasn’t it just last week that they announced they were getting married?! What a sudden change of situation!

    Feeling exceptionally disappointed in Shirley as she’s one of my favorite actresses in TVB, especially because I thought she was brave then to defy TVB orders and stick to the less-famous Gregory and disregard her career, fame and wealth

    Oh god, maybe at this point in time, her priorities in life changed and she realized that this wasn’t what she truly wanted and that she desired a career upstart, fame and even more wealth (she’s known to be a penny pincher), which is strange considering that she’s no longer in her twenties so doubt TVB will heavily promote her.

    Goodness knows what lies behind that sweet face of hers (she’s really pretty!) but unless that allegedly third party, Andy, is proven to be filthy rich and high in society standing then objectively, she doesn’t deserved being labelled as a gold-digger.

    But anyway, I still don’t get it so Shirley just went to tell Gregory that they were breaking up because she fell in love with a third party called Andy? Then what’s the reason “a man cannot accept” and “‘a man most pain’ reason” about?

        @Funn:

        For years, it has been said that TVB likes obedient artists and non-obedient ones (who disclose their relationship etc) will get “frozen” by the company.

        Of course TVB doesn’t issue such orders openly but discreetly, how else could one explain why Raymond Lam/Ron Ng had to keep his relationship with Mavis Pan Shuang Shuang/Viann Zhang under wraps and why Bosco and Myolie Wu refused to admit their relationship?

        And why was it that in 2004, Shirley Yeung was heavily promoted by TVB but after her relationship with Gregory Lee was made public, she has been given non-leading roles ever since? (aka “frozen”?)

        But anyway, if you are looking for substantial evidence, here it is:

      I liked Shirley as well… part of the reason was that I respected her for dating the much less successful Gregory, unlike many other hk young actresses today who only date rich boys. She also openly dated dated Gregory at the height of her career (which is a big no-no for TVB artists) which may have affected how much TVB promoted her.

      Maybe she will focus more on her career now… although she is no longer in her twenties, she still looks quite youthful. Perhaps she can dig gold in China.

        To be fair, currently, Shirley is more famous than Gregory. She has more exposure and bigger roles while Greg is relegated to minor roles. Yes, HK viewers and long time TVB/ATV watchers will know Greg, but, Shirley now has more fans, more popular and I’m sure more famous in China due to her participation in ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.

        @ Stephy

        I agree with you. If TVB were to give more chances to Greg like they gave to other Siu Sangs, he will be more successful.

    If thats the kind of girl Shirley Yeung is then all I can say is that Gregory is well rid of her. I have never liked her; will go as far as saying can’t stand her even. But this isn’t because I can’t stand her, any girl who can behave like that; i.e. be with their boyfriend one minute as if everything in the garden was roses and then dump him like that, is definitely not worth it. I would not be surprised if she has found someone new, this Andy person. Well, he (poor man!!) would need lots of luck. Hey, you had better watch out. If she can treat one guy like that then she can treat you in the same way. If I was Andy I would think twice about going out with someone like that. She has no feelings for anyone but herself and totally selfish.

    Gregory, find yourself another girl. Someone more worthy of you. Why waste your tears on some stupid woman like Shirley Yeung, even though you’ve had 11 years of relationship. Once a cup breaks it would not be the same again. Good luck!

    If it was not for Gregory and Shirley news, I thought he left the entertainment circle ages ago. I didn’t notice his very, very minor role in My Sister of Eternal Flower if someone didn’t point him out. His father is much more noticeable in series because of his loud voice, lol.
