Jessica Liu’s Ex-Boyfriend Commits Suicide

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.”

        @kenexia she probably wont, her image is completely tarnished. Yeah TVB signed her and a few other contestants from this year MHK. TVB lost alot of good actresses recently so they using the pageant to find new people to recruit.

      Wow, what a stone heart? No reaction towards her ex death? Just feel bad for him. Couldn’t think through, he should find help. Go to psychiatrist. She’s not worth for taking his own life. The most hurtful would be his parents whose gave him his life. Btw, he’s handsome, what a pity

        You are so right! It’s a big loss for his family & friends. She is such a heartless person. It’s too sad that he didn’t see that. Condolences to his family.

          I totally agree and he could have found someone better. She seems like the type that immediately dumps something when something better comes along. Not a faithful person at all. I think he would have been better off without her. But sadly he choose to take his own life over someone unworthy like her. I just hope he is in a happier and better place now.

      Do not think its right to point the entire blame onto her. Especially when we do not know the real truth. Its easy to point at someone to blame when you are hurting and to judge someone when they respond about someone that they were once close to, to be cold hearted. I think she made a response that is acceptable as if she commented in a way that was regretful or sad in public then people would say that she was using this to gain public sympathy or she is fake due to the stuff that he posted on instagram. Clearly her ex-boyfriend had mental issues and insecurity issues that he could not over come. There are no wrongs or rights in a relationship. If you take the step towards a relationship, you have to accept there will always be a chance that your heart might be broken. Some people take break ups really bad and with other elements of his life also taking a hit, I guess he felt that it all stemmed from his break up with his girlfriend. As how do we know that he wasnt under performing or had behavioural/mental issues at work that caused his dismissal. He wasnt a well man and needed desperately help, not constant connections with his ex-girlfriend or stalking his ex. His sister is grieving and to disclose something as personal as his suicide note is not right. No matter how angry you are. It was personal and what does anyone gain by disclosing it publicly. Whatever happened in their personal relationship, it was no one business other than the two of them, not even his sister. People change even in years of marriage. So this will be connected to her life no matter what and whether she is fake or real, well its her own conscience and burden she will need to take with her through her life. Everyone has a story and everyone has their version so let it be, sad that her ex-boyfriend didnt use his strength to walk away and find happiness in time, and you can only feel for his parents to have to bury their son before his time, as they will never get over this.

        @shorts totally agree

        he was young and good lookin .. he could have move on and found someone else.. go back to school or find another job…

        me think that his suicide is probably a way to blame her, take revenge and ruin her dreams … anyhow i hope she recovers from this.. she cannot be totally blame on this as he chose to take his own life

          @kenexia Using suicide to blame someone is one thing, but actually taking the action to commit suicide to blame someone….. is way too much. Since that did happen, I think that he was greatly and honestly negatively affected by Jessica (and perhaps the media when the broke up) in combination mental illness (depression) that wasn’t treated.

          @meilin

          I do not think he would use his own life to blame her. I am sure he had way more issues going on mentally. The break up may have contributed to it but of course is not the only thing.

          @hetieshou that’s what I meant. That’s why I said he might said that too threaten but since he actually did it, it’s clear there are definitely other problems.

          If it was solely to blame her and make get lose job… I’m sure he’s smart enough to know that not a guarantee. She may be sad for a period of time but I’m pretty sure sure move on and soon forget about him. As for career wise, tvb freeze some and others not so it’s quite unpredictable. So it is not worth it solely just to ruin her life. I’m sure it’s rather due to him being super hurt and interested mental illness.

          @kenexia
          I agree that he could have moved on and found someone way better who would have treasured him. I bet he had a lot of psychological problems that he should have gotten help for instead of taking his own life like that. She or anyone is not worth it at all.

          I actually do not agree that he committed suicide to blame her. I find it too far fetched to think that. First of all, I am positive he had more than just her break up that caused him to take his own life. Also, they have broken up so do you think he would have thought his death would affect her much? Not really… you should not just assume that he took his own life just to blame her. I doubt that thought even crossed his mind. I bet he was battling depression and other factors and just wanted to end all of the pain which was what may have led him to commit suicide. It is wrong to accuse him of something like that.

          @kenexia Sam did not commit suicide to take revenge on Jessica. Before he passed away, he did an interview and said she did not cheat. Whether or not Jessica did or did not cheat, he did not say anything bad about her in the interview.

        @shorts agreed. never use death as a threat. you can tell by sam’s suicidal note that he has some premeditation on wanting to blame jessica for his demise…I’m not saying it’s unwarranted since I don’t know the full story behind their relationship, but to commit suicide over an alleged cheating gf is not worthwhile and very selfish to his family.

        @shorts I completely agree. It’s easy to point fingers at someone but you don’t know the truth. He clearly was going through a difficult time mentally and didn’t receive the help he needed. She could only do so much but at the end of the day, she needs to look out for herself. Sometimes that means she needs to leave him.

        However, I don’t think she can recover from this poor girl. Hope she can step away from the entertainment life and move on.

      This is definitely a tragedy that no one would’ve wanted. The follow up story on this is that his sister posted Jessica’s response to her messages about her brother’s passing, which (IMO) isn’t right; she is out to jeopardize her career. I get the family is in pain and wanting to release their anger in some way, but truth is, whether Jessica was in the picture or not, Sam might’ve committed suicide anyways – depression isn’t easy to pinpoint and fix, and there are so many compounding factors that was the catalyst up to his death. All I can say is that I hope Sam found the peace he was looking for and that I hope his family finds solace in that he found relief.

        @coralie totally agree. As mental issues is a silent illness and unfortunately for so many cases its too late to help. Also I think the sister needed to find someone to blame other than tackling the issue that her own brother had his own personal mental issues. She needs to reach out to help her parents and stop with all this. Lets hope for all parties that they can restore their life and learn to cope in order to be able to move on.

          @shorts
          It is not right of the sister to do that but I can understand as I lost one of my brothers too( but not to suicide). Even though Jessica is not to blame 100%, she may have been a contributing factor. His sister just lost her brother which is painful so of course she would not act logically. But I hope they can stop pointing fingers at Jessica or anyone and stay strong to move on with their lives. I am sure her brother would want her and his parents happy.

          @hetieshou Contributing factor or not is purely subjective but I would say they are at least successful in getting their goals of making her take the blame.

          Yes but even if so, her response to his passing was what blew her image down the drain. I am sure many understand that it is not truly all her fault but the way she responded did the deal. Now if she responded with more sympathy then it would not be so bad.

      there are always 2 sides to a story. So no, she shouldn’t take the blame wholly if indeed he became possessive and can’t deal with the breakup like an adult and used emotional threat as a tool. He did die, and that is always sad, since he was so young but to waste his life over a woman who no longer loved him, perhaps cheated on him, im sorry but I feel sorry for his parents, not him. Emotional abuse is abuse. That’s why it is not her fault unless she actively encouraged him to do the unthinkable. HOWEVER her response if was correctly and accurately translated seems cold and distant. At least pretend to be emotionally affected instead of being angry at being sabotaged. Again need to hear her speak because sometimes translations do not convey the emotions.

          @hetieshou Because if you read the suicide note his sister published, almost all the contents are about him blaming her. Also, it’s obvious his sister intentionally wants to destroy her career by revealing the suicide note. (https://hk.appledaily.com/entertainment/20201203/BJKNNYQ2ZNDZTDJAXG3BBL6Y5I/)

          While I am neither defending nor attacking Jessica Liu but what if she was truly innocent and did not commit any affair? Would it have been fair for her potential career or future to be destroyed simply because one party feels that she is responsible for his happiness?

        @funnlim
        I agree and we do not know for sure what truly happened but I have a feeling that he was suffering from depression and other psychological problems that he needed to get seek help for. The break up was just a part of it. I bet he was suffering a lot more than just this break up stuff but it may have pushed him over the edge. Yes, I feel bad for his parents as losing a child is never easy, especially due to suicide.

        We can’t blame her 100% but her response was too cold and careless. It is true that they have broken up but at least show some sympathy.

      i don’t think this is her fault. what else could she have done to prevent this? she no longer loves him, so i don’t expect her to just be together with him out of pity.

      after the breakup he kept harassing her, if i were her i’ll be scared of this guy too. if she had already made things clear i don’t think she has to respond to him any more, which might give a false hope.

      he chose to end his own life. this is not love, just selfish. if he truly loved her he would have let her go.

        @birdy I don’t think it is 100% her fault, but she definitely plays a part. Yes, she no longer loves him, but maybe she did not have to cheat on him (for ex. there were screenshots of her & Danny setting up meetings). We also don’t know how they broke up but it was described as “messy” so we don’t know what words they used, etc.

        When she stated that he kept harassing her, he responded to that. She may have exaggerated or she may not have. We don’t know. Also, the media probably made Sam feel a bit humiliated from the break up. He’s not in the entertainment industry, but why did they interview him about the break up??

          @kenexia if his interview is correct, then yea he seemed to be a bit obsessive about jessica…to the extent she felt harassed by him post-breakup. His obsession with her is not her fault and their subsequent breakup over his controlling and threatening behavior would push most people away. I don’t know if there’s any other way she should behave besides saying feeling sorry and condolences to his family.

          @kenexia Possible. Could also be that during the interview, he was still hoping to get back together and also didn’t want to ruin her public image. Usually the truths are told when someone is really angry.

          Personally, it seems to me that it’s more likely she had something going on with Danny. She’s just gaining fame and just recently entered the industry (ie. world of good looking people), and she herself is quite attractive as well.

          On a side note, I didn’t know Danny broke up with his gf.

          I think he should have just dropped her and moved on as there are plenty more fish in the sea. What a tragedy. I have noticed that some tend to drop their old boyfriends/girlfriends and even friends after they enter the entertainment circle and get famous and popular. Of course not everyone is like that. However, I have a feeling that that may be the case here but the guy sadly refused to completely let go so it ended up like this.

      Depression is horrible. It is no one’s fault because it is an under-treated disease. I hope he was given treatment after his first several attempts, but even then, the disease can be too overwhelming.

      It isn’t her fault and it is ridiculous if she loses her career over this. Women should be able to break up with men without a backlash. On the flip side, this is unlikely to happen to a man, and this shows how unfair the world is.

        @potatochip I agree with “Women should be able to break up with men without a backlash.” Jessica’s career is most likely over, although it just started. Maybe if she had a “better” response, then she couldve gained some sympathy points. But the whole cheating accusation doesnt help either.

      Hmm, tough one.. but I do not blame her for leaving him in the first place. There was a reason why she left and cut ties with him. I’m aware that he’s a victim of mental illness, but the dude knew exactly what he was doing. And it worked. Hopefully the girl is strong enough to walk out of this unscathed. Quite honestly,, he sounded like a ticking time bomb just waiting to happen.

      Someone mentioned it above,, but lets be real here, meeting up with coworkers outside of work does not equal cheating.

      He is young and good looking, such a pity.

      This reminded me of one of my close friend, she got dumped by her bf cos of another girl and she was really sad and had many times thought about suicide and giving up on her life. But due to her parents sake, she changed her mind. After almost 2 years of break up, she found a new relationship and her new bf is even more good looking, wealthier and good personality. She is happily married now with 2 kids. She shared if that time she were to commit suicide and succeeded, she would have lost the chance to meet this wonderful guy who is now her husband.

      So hang in there ppl, there is always light at the end of a tunnel.

      after reading some of the audio clips he left behind with his friend (which is still kinda weird because who records people’s convos like that?), it seemed like he was a good guy, just someone who isn’t suitable for her. she didn’t like men who are stringent about money (everything must be half-half) and yelling at her to do chores. anything financial is almost always a huge deal-breaker…even if he had given her all his money, if his ideology towards money isn’t similar to her own, over time this will create resentment. and they will break up anyways.

      towards her response to his sister’s announcement of his death, all i can say is that it sounds like she thinks sam is manipulative and cruel enough to lead people to his suicide letter’s content just so he can get back at her. that’s not the best way to think of someone, esp post-mortem, and does sound callous. but she might be in shock and doesn’t know what to think, just wanted to get to the bottom of it. i think she doesn’t want to believe it’s really her that caused his death (which in all fairness, it’s not really her – just his ideas of her) and who really wants to be blamed for someone’s death, even inadvertently? callous, but understandable.

      Her ex, Sam Cheung, committed suicide, but Jessica Liu didn’t bat an eye, she just made a unsympathetic statement declaring the breakup was the right choice. Based on the statement she made it’s clear she’s unremorseful of her actions, that she contributed to his death.

      She used him; tossed him away like a used tissue after hooking up with another rich guy. Wasted no time in moving on after the breakup. What a calculating cunning witch.

      Most commentators on this post are unempathetic towards the sister who just lost her older brother. Thanks to the younger sister, Jessica Liu’s true colours are exposed.
