TVB actress, 25-year-old Lily Ho (何傲兒), is rumored to be dating Hong Kong businessman, 76-year-old Lam Kin Ming (林建名). The pair have been rumored to be an item since as early as 2009, when Lily and Lam Kin Ming were seen dancing together at a charity ball.
Last month, Lily and Lam Kin Ming were seen attending Priscilla Chan’s (陳慧嫻) Hong Kong Coliseum concert, where they were photographed sitting in the front row together. They originally kept distance from each other, but once the lights dimmed, Lily and Lam Kin Ming moved closer and whispered to each other. Lily also pulled out her phone and shared some of her photos and messages with Lam Kin Ming.
Gossip magazines claimed that it was Lily’s father, Ho Sai Kan (何世根), who often arranged Lily to meet up with Lam Kin Ming and encouraged their relationship. A source close to Lily’s family revealed that Ho Sai Kan would only bring Lily to meet with Lam Kin Ming rather than his elder daughter, Gigi Ho (何傲芝).
Lily denied these stories in a recent phone interview, explaining, “Mr. Lam is my father’s friend. Whenever there are concerts, he would invite us to see it with him. Celebrity guests usually sit in the front, which is why only the two of us were photographed. My father and his friends sat in the back. Reporters also photographed them. I don’t know why they didn’t publish those photos.”
Lily felt uncomfortable about these rumors. “He is a senior whom I respect very much.” Lily clarified that all the “secret” photos of herself and Lam Kin Ming, which were published in a tabloid report, were actually taken at public events.
Asked if they would meet up in privately, she said, “Friends eat meals with each other all the time.” On whether or not she would be willing to accept a partner much older than herself, Lily admitted, “I never thought about that. Career is most important right now. I don’t want to think about romance.”
