Marco Ngai Comments on Breakup with Joyce Tang
TVB star Joyce Tang (滕麗名) had always wanted a family of her own, and it appears that this dream will finally be realized soon.
3 Weekly reported earlier this week that Joyce’s boyfriend of three years, Canon executive Matthew Chu, had proposed to Joyce last year during their trip to New Zealand. It is reported that the couple will hold their marriage in late 2013.
As a result, Awfully Lawful <熟男有惑>, a legal comedy drama that will premiere next week, may be Joyce’s last television drama for TVB. It has been said that Joyce has decided to forgo the opportunity for a contract renewal with her mother station, and will put full focus on being a wife and a mother.
Joyce’s ex-boyfriend of nine years, former Armed Reaction <陀槍師姐> costar Marco Ngai (魏駿傑), reacted negatively towards the rumors of Joyce’s marriage. On the mainland Chinese variety program Battle of the Sexes <男左女右>, a dating game show, Marco expressed his bitterness at the press for putting the blame on him and victimizing Joyce in their breakup.
On why he ended up breaking up with Joyce in 2007, Marco said, “I dated her for many years. We were a couple on screen and off. Because of that, the audience thought we were really compatible. But then if I don’t marry her, I’ll end up being called the sinner, the bad guy.”
Marco also shared, “I did some research, and statistics state that those who chose to marry after three years of dating had a higher divorce rate than those who have flash marriages.” Marco then added, “So I think that those who don’t do flash marriages are wrong.”
Marco also hinted that had he and Joyce married, they would probably end up in divorce anyway.
Joyce was not at all disturbed by Marco’s statements, and in a brief phone interview with 3 Weekly, the former singer hinted that Marco was using her for promotion. “I’m not embarrassed. Maybe the audience was curious about us. I’m not upset. Why would I be upset at someone who is not relevant to my life?”
Joyce did not confirm the rumor that she will be married soon, but assured that if it were true, she would announce it.
