Jessica Liu’s Ex-Boyfriend Commits Suicide
Since joining Miss Hong Kong 2020, Jessica Liu (廖慧儀) was surrounded by negative rumors and her breakup with non-celebrity boyfriend Sam Cheung was highly controversial. Sam blamed Jessica for dumping him after finding fame and cheating in their relationship. Torn with anguish over their breakup and unable to forget Jessica, Sam jumped to his death yesterday. His younger sister has confirmed his suicide.
Sam Suspected Jessica of Cheating
Nicknamed by the media as the “Wild Stewardess,” Jessica’s negative image cost her placement in the pageant despite her beautiful looks. After landing hosting opportunities with TVB, Jessica grew close to TVB actor Danny Hung (孔德賢) while still dating Sam.
Feeling extremely jealous, Sam believed that Jessica had cheated in their relationship. Sam even threatened Danny on social media to stay away from his girlfriend. Though there were screen caps of a conversation between Danny and Jessica, where they were coordinating where to meet up and Danny had also called Jessica “Bae” at one point, both artistes denied the cheating rumors.
In September, Jessica broke up with Sam, stating their personalities were incompatible. She denied Sam’s public outcries that she had changed after joining the entertainment industry. Insisting that there was no third party involved, Jessica said she and Danny were rarely in contact.
With Sam having a difficult time accepting their breakup, the pair had several ugly exchanges through Instagram. Sam claimed that Jessica had completely changed and constantly lied to him, while she said Sam often threatened to commit suicide and stalked her and her family.
Sam Jumps to His Death
For weeks, the issue seemed to have died down and many believed Sam and Jessica tried to adjust to their new lives apart. However, Sam felt very depressed and he had attempted suicide five to six times, where he climbed to the rooftop wanting to end his life. Though Sam’s sister and friends were able to dissuade him in early attempts, he ultimately took his life when he lost his will to live.
On December 2, Sam left his last words on Instagram, “Thank you to everyone who has been supporting me throughout my journey. Goodbye. Please forgive me for doing this. Been suffering for two months mentally and physically. Just couldn’t take it any longer. Sorry.” Half an hour later, Sam was discovered to have jumped to his death from a building in Yau Ma Tei. He was rushed to the hospital, but medical staff were not able to resuscitate him.
Sam’s sister confirmed his passing on social media, “My brother is no longer here, thank you for your concern. We will hold a funeral in the future and will notify everyone then.”
Sam’s Suicide Letter
Sam’s sister also shared a long suicide letter that she had found on his computer, shedding light on the troubles he had gone through.
Throughout the letter, Sam constantly reminisced about the sweet memories he had with Jessica. After she joined Miss Hong Kong 2020, everything changed in their relationship. Sam felt that she had had always wanted fame, and when it finally came to fruition, her life no longer revolved around him.
He wrote that in September, he experienced losing his job, being back-stabbed, and breaking up with Jessica. Everything important in his life had been lost. Jessica also constantly lied to him and used various excuses to hide that she was seeing someone else. Although he was grateful for his family and friends’ concern, he felt very tired and could not move on from the past. He could no longer find any reason to live.
Jessica Responds to Sam’s Suicide
With Sam’s passing, Jessica and Danny have naturally come under fire. In an earlier interview, Jessica insisted that she broke up with Sam because of incompatibility and denied the cheating rumors. “We haven’t been in touch in awhile. We had resolved the issue awhile ago–I did what I was supposed to do. If he cannot accept this, then I have no control. We were both in agreement to end our relationship. Maybe it was hard to accept emotionally, but rationally this relationship came to an end.”
