TVB actress Kaman Kong (江嘉敏) has been dating her non-celebrity boyfriend Anthony for quite some time, but their relationship took a hit when a gossip magazine published private messages between Kaman and a wealthy businessman Mr. Wong, leading to cheating rumors.
In the private WhatsApp messages shared by the gossip magazine, the 24-year-old Fist Fight <兄弟> actress had requested Mr. Wong to treat her to a trip to Japan. The magazine claimed that Kaman had also asked Mr. Wong to buy “at least 100 packs of souvenirs” in addition to snacks and cartoon merchandise for her. She also asked for an additional HK$500,000 for her piano shop, a HK$100,000 Hermes bracelet, and convinced him to purchase a seven seater mini-van so she could use it for work.
Kaman did not bother to clarify those rumors at first. When she was first approached for comment, she simply said, “It is all fake. I have nothing else to say.”
It wasn’t until her cheating rumors started spreading when Kaman decided to make a comment.
On Instagram, she shared a more complete and detailed screenshot of her private exchange with Mr. Wong. In the messages, Mr. Wong told Kaman that his meeting with “Ed” (referring to Edison Chen 陳冠希) could be “quite interesting” and asked if Kaman was interested in going. Kaman replied, “What am I going to do if I’m there?”
Mr. Wong then mentioned an event attended by Edison in Japan, to which Kaman said that she would have to bring her team and get an official invitation if it is a public event.
Hours after sharing the screenshots, Kaman reacted by saying that she was regretting her actions. “I’m sorry. I admit that I had acted too impulsively,” she said. “This isn’t the first time I’ve gotten harassed, so that fire in me never went out. I exploded before even thinking.”
Kaman said she also made a mistake by treating the other person as a friend before even getting to know him. “It’s naive of me to agree with everything. Perhaps being soft-spoken just isn’t suitable for me. Because of that people would think I’m just flirting with everyone. I’ll continue to be who I am. I hope I won’t seem too much like a boy.”
Kaman said she will reflect on the incident, have a good night’s sleep, and welcome the next day afresh.
As for whether or not her relationship with her boyfriend was affected, she said, “He apologized to me as well, because he was the one who introduced me to this Mr. Wong. He said sorry, and I felt bad.”
