Joel Chan (陳山聰) sacrificed his career and friends in order start a wealthy courtship with heiress Florinda Ho (何超雲), the daughter of casino tycoon Stanley Ho (何鴻燊) and his third wife, Ina Chan (陳婉珍). But the couple’s controversial romance ended in less than three years, sparking accusations that Joel’s intentions in getting close with the affluent Ho family was for money, and only for these reasons alone.

Earlier, both Joel and Florinda uploaded their Weibo profiles, respectively writing “We are going to separate” and “Love = money.” Afterwards, Florinda traveled to England to heal her broken wounds with retail therapy. Joel’s whereabouts, however, are unknown. Although they have declined to address their breakup reasons to the public, it was earlier alleged that the chic ex-couple broke up after constant arguments over matters of starting a fashion business together.

A major reason behind their split, as claimed by tabloids in recent reports, was over money. Florinda and Joel’s “joint” fashion business was mostly paid out of Florinda’s pocket. The 24-year-old fashion icon also showered Joel with gifts, and offered to pay out his credit debts. According to the reports, Florinda ultimately found out about Joel’s money obsession and his motives on gaining ownership of her other businesses and properties. This led to her decision in breaking off the relationship.

With his credit debt increasing by the thousands, it was rumored that Joel requested a breakup fee of $10 million HKD from Florinda. That became the final straw for her, and she kicked Joel out of their love nest.

      Wow, it took two years to arrive at this conclusion. I guess she just was not ‘the sharpest knife in the drawer’. LOL!

        You know, there’s something to be said about a relationship between a heiress who lets her money think for her, and an actor who’s pretty much a professional conman.

      I don’t see why she would discover now that he’s after her money. I thought she would have already knew. It’s like a mutual benefits thing

      Well she should pay him! I don’t for one minute believe she don’t know he was after her money. Why would any girl date a guy that sacrificed his career and friends just to follow you around, unless you have a mutual agreement. Florinda provide $ and Joel provide…well you know. With this relationship the “sugar” is coming from a woman but take any successful business men when they take on a mistress they will request the mistress to be available 24hrs and pay for the all expenses and more, same scenario.
      But, if Florinda really do believe Joel was inlove with her she is BEYOND STUPID!

      Hmmm, the financial speculation part of this article didn’t shock me but these words sure did.

      “The 24-year-old fashion icon”

      Now, I have to go do some really deep thinking regarding the words “fashion icon” because I don’t know what that makes Audrey Hepburn, Coco Chanel and Kate Moss .

      My oh my, perhaps it was a spelling error, Tsk.
      Such a deceptive thin line between “fashion icon” and “fashion ican’t “

        “fashion icon” and “fashion ican’t “

        hahahaaa… lol, that’s cute!! I like it. 🙂

        BTW, last couple times I saw Kate Moss on TV, she’s no or no longer a fasion icon. If she doesn’t becareful, she’ll turn into Cortney Love.

      I don’t know how to react to article, since I think I know either of them. What series had Joel Chan participated in?

      In any case, the report is once again, has “rumored”, “allegedly” words written alll over it, so I would take it with a grain of salt. Nevertheless, I find it funny, that they used the phase “break up fee,” lol, what is the “fee” for? Did he have to process a lot of documents/paperwork for to break up her?!!

        Maybe they signed some legal business documents together?

        Anyways, the divorce seems like a blessing in disguise for Joel’s ex-wife.

        Why would a “filthy rich” and “young” woman want an “old” man (like Joel)?

        TVB definitely wants Joel back … so they can give him what he deserves … haha.

          wait… but they’re not married. they were only dating and not long enough to even be considered common law marriage like in the US, if there is such law in HK/China.

          Is he that old? how old is he?

          10+ years age gap makes the older partner “old”. Old men like having someone way younger to “nurse” them in their old age … haha.

      • M replied:

        Perhaps the “breakup fee” would be compensation for income he forfeited when he gave up his career to follow her around. But if the stories re how cheap TVB is in paying its actors are true, he probably didn’t give up $10M!

      If he really demanded $10 million, Florinda is really better off without him.

      I got a feeling he is not as rich as he claimed. Maybe slightly better than most average people but not rich.

      Does he have a chain of gyms in Macsu or just only one? Anyone knows?

        He has a big gym studio in macau, 1000m2, owned by himself only. If I rmb rite, he said the gym gives him 300k per month. He isnt super rich, but can have a quite luxurious life based on his investment.

      I think this article is bogus.Under what grounds is Joel Chan allow to ask for a breakup fee? They were never married. . unless they secretly eloped and registered for a marriage license. Or the other possibility is that he’s using that amount of money for blackmail. I’m sure within the two years they’ve dated, he has had the opportunity to learn about some of the “secrets” and drama in the HO HOUSEHOLD. From all the facebook pictures, they just travel and hang out with “celebrity friends” like Derek Kwok. She is NO FASHION ICON. Wearing outrageous and ridiculously priced clothes and posing in front of the Eiffel Tower does not make you fashionable. But sometimes I don’t understand how crazy some tabloids can get and make up such outrageous numbers.

        Florinda is called a fashionista icon years ago, not just recent after dating Joel. HK reporters love to write about her in years.

        I find it hard to believe that a HK male would be so dumb as to ask for a breakup fee from someone like her. It would offend her and cause damage to their connection. I think the press is blackhearted and just trying to finish him off for what they perceive to have been a mercenary romance on his part.

      i am just surprised they lasted as long as they did.

      feel kind of sorry for her. everyone keeps saying he was after her money (which i agree with) but completely disregard the fact that she is a young, ok looking woman who could easily attract a guy without her wealth.

      • Cleo replied:

        yes. I bet they are all prettier than they photograph. But I think he lost respect because he allowed her to dress him funny and he is an older dude so he should have known better and put his foot down and also told her to ease up on her Blade Runner outfits.
