Appearing on The Scoop <東張西望>, Shirley Yeung (楊思琦) failed to clearly explain the break-up situation with ex-boyfriend of nine years, Gregory Lee (李泳豪). With her face flooded with tears, Shirley’s responses in the interview were full of inconsistencies and failed to gain the sympathy of the audience. Expressing her interest to become a mother, Shirley allegedly took a nine-month leave of absence from TVB and did not explain where she will be going during the time frame.
Augustine Lee Blasts Shirley Yeung as a Free-Loader
Reporters were unable to reach Gregory for comment regarding the contents of Shirley’s interview. According to an inside source, Gregory watched Shirley’s television interview and his face was drenched in tears. When the paparazzi awaited in front of the Lee family’s apartment, they spotted Gregory’s elder twin brother, Augustine Lee (李泳漢), who was taking Gregory and Shirley’s dog for a walk.
When asked if Gregory knew about Shirley’s television interview, Augustine scolded, “Yes he knew. His mood was the same as the rest of the family: heart-broken. After the broadcast of Shirley’s interview, many friends called and felt injustice for Gregory. Since they were together for almost ten years, we do not understand why Shirley did not tell the truth and be fair to Gregory. Why did she continue to lie?”
Augustine indicated that he possessed evidence that Gregory was telling the truth. “I want to say that ‘paper does not cover fire.’ Everyone has eyes to see. I have evidence [that Gregory was telling the truth]. Whether the evidence is released is dependent upon Heaven’s will. Shirley told my brother that there was a third party and she was pregnant, thus asking for a break-up. I hope she is responsible for her own actions. She asked for the split. When she came across problems, she blamed my brother [alluding that Shirley hinted that Gregory gave the inside scoop to the paparazzi, thus escalating media interest even prior to her public break-up announcement]. I am heartbroken that my brother was betrayed by the woman he loved. How come Gregory was blamed? She should come forth to acknowledge that she is pregnant with another man’s baby and not lie further!”
Allegedly, Shirley’s mother was dissatisfied that Shirley was more successful than Gregory. Augustine said angrily, “We live in Kowloon Tong, which is not an embarrassment. During the nine years that Shirley lived with us, Gregory took care of every aspect of her living arrangements. There was even a maid for Shirley to command. However, this may not satisfy her. An airplane and yacht are not forms of caring. I hope she can differentiate.”
When asked whether Shirley contributed to the living expenses while living with the Lee family, Augustine said with ridicule, “Not even a penny! All these years, she never even bought a moon cake for us!” Augustine swore that he spoke only the truth. “I am saving face for her. However, each time she continues to hurt my brother. I am only saying this because I want to clear Gregory’s name.”
Shirley’s new lover, Andy Ng, professed that someone was distorting the truth. Augustine said irritatedly, “The truth came out very early. What other truth is there? If he is a real man, he will come forward and talk about it. There is no need to shoot arrows in the dark. He wanted a woman to come forward. If he is a man, why did not not handle the situation himself? In the past, Gregory came forward and helped Shirley; many people saw that!” Augustine indicated that Gregory was extremely heart-broken and accompanied by his family, who were afraid he would commit a rash act [commit suicide].
Lee Ka Ding: “Shirley Asked My Son to Pick Up Feces and Urine!”
Hinting in The Scoop interview that Gregory may have been unable to take care of her, Shirley let go of their nine-year relationship. Gregory’s father, Lee Ka Ding (李家鼎), was extremely angered by the contents of Shirley’s interview. Mr. Lee said, “She said they mutually agreed to break-up in February to March time frame. That’s [expletive] nonsense! She came to my house to play with the dog at that time and eat dinner together. During Gregory’s birthday in May, Shirley was there too! I dare say that they did not break-up at the time. On June 26th, she visited Gregory on the filming set to eat supper. She said he paid the bill. The next night, she came again. If they mutually agreed to break-up, why would I have dinner with them? Am I [expletive] crazy?”
Regarding Shirley’s free-flowing tears in her television interview, Mr. Lee scolded, “What is she best at? It’s crying, scolding, and ‘hanging herself.’ Didn’t she already find someone to take care of her? [In the interview], she said she wanted to find another man; so that would make three men in total? That’s total [expletive] rubbish!”
Mr. Lee cursed vehemently and said Gregory did not give the paparazzi the inside scoop regarding the break-up to the media prior to Shirley’s public announcement. Mr. Lee said, “If my son gave the inside scoop, I will fall and die on the street! I can swear one-hundred percent that Gregory did not give the scoop. They did not break-up at that point yet!”
While dating, Gregory and Shirley kept several dogs. Although Shirley declared that she loved the dogs as her own children, she did not take them with her after moving from the Lee’s apartment. Mr. Lee said, “She will definitely not want the dogs. All along, only Gregory took care of them. Gregory was responsible in picking up the dogs’ feces and urine Shirley only played with the dogs and never took care of them. Of course she wanted to keep one hundred dogs, since it only involved playing. However, I scolded Shirley, ‘My foolish son is taking care of the dogs for you!'”
Mr. Lee: “I Will Not Allow Gregory to Raise Shirley’s Baby!”
Regarding Shirley’s two-timing behavior, Mr. Lee said, “Fairness is evident in each person’s heart. I always tell Gregory, ‘Since she is framing you in such a manner, when the truth is exposed, she is the one without face!'”
In an earlier interview, Gregory claimed that he was willing to marry Shirley and raise her baby if she were to return to his side. Mr. Lee said, “If the baby was conceived prior to Shirley meeting Gregory and she is now dating my son, with a clear explanation, then I can accept it. However, the truth is not this way. I can not accept it. If Gregory were to insist, I will not be happy and feel uncomfortable inside.”
Helping Gregory Stand On His Feet Again
Mr. Lee estimated that Gregory will need one year to fully recover from the break-up. Mr. Lee said, “This was Gregory’s first time dating. He was very immersed in the relationship and even planned on marriage. Unfortunately, this incident occurred. Of course, he received a big shock. I have to help him stand up again. Everyday, I urge him to let go. I do not allow him to drive to prevent any mishaps.” Regarding Shirley’s intention to take a nine-month leave of absence, Mr. Lee said, “Whatever she wants to do is none of my [expletive] business!”
Shih Ming: “Not Interested in Anything About Shirley”
Shirley claimed that both her parents and Gregory’s family knew that they had broken-up in her initial public announcement. Gregory’s mother, Shih Ming ((施明), claimed that she did not know they had broken-up. Only the involved parties knew the truth. Shih Ming supported her beloved son, Gregory, and was most concerned that his thoughts will wander negatively.
Shih Ming indicated that she especially paid careful attention to Gregory’s mood over the last several days. “I give him more time to get over this hardship. At this time, he needs people’s comfort and caring. I will try my best efforts to do so.” Regarding Shirley as a daughter-in-law in the past, Shih Ming indicated that she was disheartened about the recent developments. “I have stopped watching and reading the news. I don’t want to know anything about her. I am only concerned about Gregory’s emotional state and hope that he can resume normalcy again.”
Regarding rumors that Shirley took nine months leave of absence from TVB, Virginia Lok (樂易玲) said, “Shirley did not take vacation from the company.”
