Hong Kong singer Lesley Chiang (姜麗文) earlier attended a function with her elder brother, Benji Chiang (姜文杰). The artiste was asked to comment on her breakup with Fred Cheng (鄭俊弘), who had earlier shared at an event that they have not been in contact for almost a year. Speaking of their separation in front of the press, Lesley could not hold back her tears and had to turn around to collect her emotions.
Lesley admitted to reporters, “I read the tabloids. We broke up a long time ago. I won’t reveal the reason, since it has been a while. Everyone should move on instead of dwell on whether we’re together or apart. I’m sure you’ve all been through times like this before, and know that it’s not easy.” Lesley could feel her tears coming and immediately apologized before turning her back to reporters to compose herself. A few seconds later, she faced the press and said, “Give us some space,” only to turn back to stop her tears again.
Reporters asked Benji if he knew the details behind his sister’s breakup. He shared, “I haven’t seen Fred either, but I’ll see him at Alan Luk’s (陸駿光) upcoming wedding.” Benji added that there is no need for him to try and comfort Lesley, since she is already a grown-up and he is not involved in the business. “Actually, I’ve known Fred for a really long time,” Benji said.
On the other hand, reporters also approached Fred while he was promoting his upcoming personal concert in September. When it was mentioned that Lesley teared up when speaking of their breakup, Fred expressed, “We have separated for a while, and haven’t been in touch since.” He also remained tightlipped for the reason behind their breakup, but revealed it was a peaceful one. When asked if they are still friends, Fred remarked, “We’ll focus on our careers for now.”
