Hawick Lau Threatens to Sue Tabloid Over Alleged Affair
Since their marriage in 2014, 42-year-old Hawick Lau (劉愷威) and 30-year-old Yang Mi (杨幂) were frequently rumored to be in discord. Due to their filming schedules in Mainland China, the couple is often separated and left their two-year-old daughter under the care of Hawick’s parents in Hong Kong.
The couple’s relationship came under scrutiny again when reports of Hawick’s alleged affair with his Desolate Era <莽荒紀> costar 34-year-old Angel Wang (王鸥) surfaced on November 10. Reports claim that the costars secretly met up twice inside a darkened hotel room over the span of three days. On the first night, Hawick was inside Angel’s room for four hours. On the second night, he stayed for two hours.
Displaying a united front, Hawick denied the rumors through his Weibo, while Yang Mi, expressed her confidence in her husband.
Although he admitted to meeting with Angel, Hawick asserted that the costars met in the hotel room only to go over the script together. Hawick’s company quickly issued a warning letter a mere half hour later and threatened to pursue legal action against the tabloid, claiming that the reports severely damaged the 42-year-old actor’s image and reputation. Hawick claimed that it was necessary for the co-stars to meet after filming hours to discuss the script, which is subject to daily revisions by the production crew.
Hawick’s quick retaliation against the rumors led to speculation that the report may hold some truth.
Angel also responded, “Thanks everyone for your concern. I didn’t intrude on anyone’s marriage. I am only colleagues with Hawick Lau.”
