Linda Chung Ends 8-Year Relationship with Philip Ng?

After dating for eight years, 32-year-old Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) and martial arts actor Philip Ng‘s (伍允龍) relationship has reportedly ended. The couple dated after filming Love is Not All Around <十分愛> in 2007. Their relationship was met with much criticism due to differences in their income level.

An insider revealed, “When they started dating, Linda’s family was very against it. Even the company warned that Philip would drag down her career. The two have been facing immense pressure through the years. At the end of 2013, Linda invited Philip to her concert without consulting her company, causing Herman Ho (何哲圖) to be really upset.”

After persisting for eight years, Philip finally got a break by landing the lead role in Sifu vs. Vampire <天師鬥殭屍>. Believing that they have finally reached the light at the end of the tunnel, Linda slowly began to open up about their relationship, incurring the wrath of her company. The insider further revealed, “Last October, Linda suddenly visited Philip on set of Sifu vs. Vampire. Herman got even more upset and halted the release of Linda’s new record.”

The couple’s happiness was short-lived, as Philip’s career once again reached a plateau.

While dating Philip, Linda sacrificed her career and relationship with TVB. However, Linda finally felt that she should put her career as top priority. “This year, both their careers are bleak. They’re moody and constantly argue. She also feels that she is getting old and is wasting time having to wait for Philip’s career to improve. She feels that their future together is unpromising, so she decided to break up.”

The pair reportedly agreed to keep their break up under wraps. Suspicions arose when Linda recently responded to questions about whether she would cook for her boyfriend, “I don’t have a boyfriend. I only have friends.”

When reporters called to inquire about his breakup with Linda, Philip responded, “I won’t respond to these reports. You called so late; it’s inconvenient for me to say.”

    i don’t trust any articles with a question mark in the title. it’s also hard for me to believe her family would prefer her to prioritise her work over her relationship, especially as she gets older. i think she’s going to eventually marry this guy.

      @anoninhk I sort of agree. Linda doesn’t seem like a materialistic or ambitious girl to me. They can still get married and survive if he earns less than her. Its not like they are dirt poor and they both need to earn millions to survive. (But then again, look at how genuine Shirley was when she stuck by Gregory and look at them now,)

      I mean she knew he was not popular when she started to date him and it has been so many years. And Linda is probably going to leave TVB soon so I don’t see why she would break up with Phillip for her career. She might for emotional or personality issues between the two if them but I don’t really buy what this article is selling.

    Its really not worth it to sacrifice her career for a guy. We have to live in reality. And the guy did nothing to show he is worth to her, not by just being popular. I dont believe in you must strike it rich then can date type of thinking. But if both of them have this mindset, then its difficult to be together for long.

    Well Linda is getting older…and I think she did say she want kids. So if their relationship is stable but still not at the marriage stage after 8 years, then I can see why she would want to break up. Money and career issues would be the symptoms, not the cause, of the break up.

        @funnlim Linda Chung finally responds to the rumors of her “breakup” with Philip. I don’t think she is dating Ruco, but who is the mysterious lady that Ruco held hands with on his Instagram photo?

        @jayne Ahhhh I missed the photo. Either girlfriend or not girlfriend. Where is the photo??

        @jayne Fans are quick to post denials reportedly from him or analysis of the hairiness of his hands. He is 38 and it is time he should settle down. Anyway please let it NOT be lin xiawei as some cheekily speculated. I like Linda but I feel if he ever ends up with Linda it will be more negative than positive.

        @jayne ok finally saw the picture! I am just speculating. That’s Linda’s hand, his jacket looks like those he will wear in Brother’s Keeper, so my guess is that’s his way of plugging his upcoming cameo in BK2 and message could be about Sam and Rachel together forever and ever.

        @funnlim Due to Ruco’s low-profile personality, the hand-clasping photo would not be his method of announcing a relationship. However, isn’t it too early to promote “Brother’s Keeper 2” when it is not even filming yet? #RucoSoHotChan

        @funnlim: Linda is always portraying that goody-2-shoe image to the public and press. No doubt Ruco and Linda make a great couple in terms of looks, she gives me the impression that she’s using Ruco to garner more publicity for herself. This poor Ruco is always at the brunt of media abuse…that he’s the 3rd party, he’s in love with Linda making him look desperate etc etc. Ruco is so freaking hot…there are lots of girls who will throw themselves at him. Ruco’s fans previously have always liked them as a couple and wished they were dating in real life. With this recent rumor and Linda again reiterating that she and Ruco are impossible but yet not admitting her relationship with her alleged Phil boyfriend, she has incurred the wrath of Ruco’s fans. And yes, I do feel that it’s more negative than positive if he does end up with Linda. Anyway, I hope Ruco finds his true love soon…he deserves better.

        @lml1977 I don’t see why she needs to admit her relationship to Philip. It’s really her private matter and sometimes admiting to a relationship is even worse. She have her reasons to protect her relationship.

        One day when Ruco dates someone (when he is very popular), you will see the trouble he will be in for admiting a relationship. His last relationship no one cares because he was not popular. Media will dig out all the info on his girlfriend, her family, her financial status, her ex boyfriends, her whole history etc… They will write about third parties in the relationship non-stop and make up lots of fake stories. You will have a taste of these negative press and see from Linda’s fans point of view when Ruco dates someone.

    Sorry Funn got it wrong. That handholding pic was merely reposted on IG by Ruco. The name of the original poster was purposely edited out in the news reports to make it look like it was Ruco’s pic.
    Don’t think Linda needs to make use of Ruco or vice versa. It’s just the doggie press making up stories.

      @chocobunny: Yes, I agree that the paparazzi have a tendency to make up stories. The media always writes stuff that Ruco is in love with Linda but it is one-side, unrequitted love etc. But when the media questions Linda, she gives very evasive answer, and always stresses that she and Ruco are impossible. She can say something more positive and help clear Ruco’s name if she wants to. But she gives really vague answers which annoys me. Ruco is always labelled as 3rd party and rejected by Linda in the press. For Ruco, he never slams Linda…always gives very diplomatic replies saying that they are good friends/partners.

        @lml1977 Linda also have said they are good friends and good working partners many times. She is trying to stop the rumours by saying they are not dating. I don’t see anything wrong with her replies. It’s the reporters that likes to MAKE her replies sounds like she is rejecting him. NOT her. You want to blame go blame the media. Tired of Ruco fans just blaming Linda all the time. Linda NEVER slams Ruco before so I’m not sure where u getting your fake reports from. Linda is a very nice person and works well with everyone she works with. She would never say bad things about Ruco. She ALWAYS say nice things about Ruco. The Linda u read on newspaper is the Linda reporters write… It’s not the real her.

        Lastly, please stop saying Linda is using Ruco for fame or promotion. She don’t need to. She’s already popular. Lots of Ruco fans say poor Ruco this poor Ruco that … Please… Have u thought actually all 3 of them are also victims. Not just Ruco. Poor Linda always get her private life written and have to face negative press. Poor Philip always gets trashed by people he is not rich or good enough for her. Don’t always make Ruco the ONLY victim of the stupid media’s fake stories.

        I just find people that hate Linda will just continue to hate her and give her unfair comments.

        @jay08 I agree with you. Linda Chung does not need Ruco Chan to promote her. It should be the other way round. Ruco just got popular in the last year or two, and Ruco had to match up to her in “Brother’s Keeper”. She was already doing 1st lead role way before that series, and it was Ruco’s 1st or 2nd lead role.

        @orchid123 Puhleezee, Ruco does not need Linda to promote him. This is negative publicity for him since he always comes out looking like a loser; he certainly doesn’t need this “publicity”. Eversince EITS, Ruco has been getting more good publicity from many newspaper interviews whereas Linda is being slammed for her bad acting. I like both of them. I’ve said that neither needs to make use of each other. Pls do not stir trouble among Ruco-Linda fans.

    That’s his second lead role I believe.

    “She also feels that she is getting old and is wasting time having to wait for Philip’s career to improve. “

    Honestly, Philip’s career really isn’t that bad. He consistently has work. He not only work in front of screen, but, also behind the screen. He was action director in several movies.
    So, even if Linda and Philip really break up, it wouldn’t be because of his career.

      @kidd I think she has stuck by him for how many years? If the complain is about his career, I feel there is no merit. Linda doesn’t look like that sort anyway. I feel if it ended it is because love has fizzled out. If you dated for so many years and remain unmarried and non committal in public, the relationship is doomed anyway. Moreover if you don’t feel that way for that person anymore, better end it so that each can look for another where they feel happy to acknowledge the existence of one another and be passionate.

      Anyway can never understand anyone’s reluctance to admit to a long term relationship but it shows; can’t or won’t admit in the end it will go nowhere.
