Joey Yung on Breakup: “Don’t Want to Say Too Much”

Making a press appearance today, Joey Yung (容祖兒) was asked about her breakup rumors with Wilfred Lau (劉浩龍). Even when asked directly if she has ended her relationship with Wilfred, Joey remained discrete and said, “It’s best for me to not say too much.”

Earlier this week, reports claimed that Joey and Wilfred separated because of the disparity in their financial success. Despite dating for five years, Wilfred has been unable to attain more success in his career. As the couple’s distance widened, they allegedly agreed to split on peaceful terms.

As Joey smiled throughout her interview with the press, she was asked if she has been able to put behind her relationship with Wilfred. Joey said, “I will not respond to whatever you say.” Asked to confirm if their breakup is official, Joey said, “It’s best for me to not respond or say too much. I don’t want there to be even more reports. Usually, I prefer to not discuss my love life too much. I want to handle it myself.”

Asked whether she has resumed her single status, Joey said, “I’m currently in working status.” In the upcoming months, Joey will be releasing two music albums and flying to Taiwan and Mainland China for work.

Asked if she has not seen Wilfred since the beginning of the year, Joey said, “No, that’s exaggerating too much.”

Due to Joey’s handling of the situation, some fans speculated that the breakup reports were to help generate publicity for Wilfred’s April concert. Joey said, “Do you think that can work?” Joey said that she and Wilfred will continue to support each other in their endeavors.

Reporters caught up with Wilfred, who went to play a game of soccer with friends Carlo Ng (吳家樂), Law Ka Ying (羅家英), and Andrew Lam (林敏驄) today. Looking tired with eye bags, Wilfred smiled at reporters but refused to comment on the breakup reports.

  1. So sad HK celeb girls chasing rich and powerful men and its acceptable news everyday. But on the flip side, its not acceptable when its HK celeb male chasing rich and powerful girl.

  2. Just included a video clip of Joey’s chat with the press over breakup rumors. I was confused by Joey’s easy smiles while chatting with the press. Wilfred seemed too happy while playing soccer. Not the type of demeanor you would expect from a couple who just broke off their 5-year relationship. Maybe they just decided to take a break and did not completely split up yet?

    1. @jayne That’s what I think too but honestly that makes things worse given Wilfred’s track record of “using” other artists and/or situations to promote himself. It can’t be a coincidence that these breakup rumors are coming out so close to Wilfred’s concert – not only that, both of them are being/have been very “coy” with the press, neither admitting to nor denying it…by keeping the public “guessing”, it guarantees that the issue will continue to be “in the news”. I wouldn’t be surprised if they truly did break up but are waiting until after Wilfred’s concert to announce it….

      I’m also not surprised why Joey’s friends and fans don’t like her dating Wilfred. If the above is true, it makes her look bad (plus all the other negative media stuff that has been attached to Wilfred over the years). I personally never liked Joey but had a certain amount of respect for her as an artist — now with this little fiasco, that little respect is out the window….

      1. @llwy12 If this is a publicity stunt to promote Wilfred’s concert, it would indeed make fans lose respect. Watching the interview clip, I was feeling a bit impatient. I don’t like artistes who beat around the bush with questions. I think if Joey gave more closure over the issue, people may talk about it for a little bit more and then just move on.

      2. @jayne That’s the frustrating part – Joey herself beating around the bush….I would think she is above that, given her status and such. I can understand Wilfred doing it because that’s how he is, but Joey knowingly “supporting” him in the effort is disappointing (if that’s indeed the case of course). Even if they are just “taking a break” and not really breaking up, I don’t see why she can’t just come right out and say that, given she said earlier in that interview that she prefers people not to dwell too much on her love life. I’m sure she knows by now how this industry works, especially in today’s age of social media where info/gossip/rumors travel super fast – the more you leave things vague and up in the air, the more people are going to speculate and talk about it…if she doesn’t want people dwelling on her love life, then she should take the initiative to close the loop….

      3. @llwy12 definitely agree. In this fast-paced online age, people’s attention spans are short-lived and they move on to the next news item quickly enough.
