Today, 39-year-old Gillian Chung (鍾欣潼) and Michael Lai (賴弘國) announced their divorce after 14 months of marriage. The announcement came as a shock to the public, as many fans have been rooting for Gillian to find true love.
Prior to meeting Michael, Gillian already made tumultuous journeys toward love, but none of them ever became fruitful. In the early years of her career, she was rumored to have dated Shawn Yue (余文樂) and Juno Mak (麥浚龍). Paparazzi had photo evidence of her and Alex Fong Lik-sun (方力申) returning to Hong Kong from their Europe tour. Her photo scandal with Edison Chen (陳冠希) had also caused significant setbacks in her career.
In 2012, she met Korean American entrepreneur Tyler Kwon, and dated him for ten months. Gillian was also seen traveling to Korea to meet Tyler’s parents. Their relationship ended in 2013, shortly before he started dating former Girls’ Generation member, Jessica Jung.
Gillian’s last rumored boyfriend before confirming her relationship with Michael was Chinese rich 2G Qin Fen (秦奮), but these rumors were never clarified.
And Gillian isn’t the only one dealing with a difficult love life. Her Twins bandmate, 37-year-old Charlene Choi (蔡卓妍) is also familiar with the pain that comes with divorce. In 2006, she secretly registered for marriage with Ronald Cheng (鄭中基) in Los Angeles, but the marriage only lasted three years. In 2010, Charlene confirmed her relationship with her Beauty On Duty! <美麗密令> costar William Chan (陳偉霆). They broke up in 2015, after five years of dating.
In 2017, rumors of Charlene dating mahjong business heir Anthony Shek (石恆聰) started to circulate, which she later confirmed.
Like Gillian and Charlene, their close friend, 39-year-old Joey Yung (容祖兒), also has a similar fate. For years, it was rumored that Joey was in a lesbian relationship with Denise Ho (何韻詩). In 2013, she confirmed that she was dating Wilfred Lau (劉浩龍). Their relationship was not well-received due to their difference in popularity. They announced their split in 2019.
