Tabloids are speculating that Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) and her mother-in-law are not getting along.
According to the rumor, Myolie’s relationship with her mother-in-law turned awkward after her son, Brendan Lee (李奕霆), was born last October. Myolie’s mother-in-law, who permanently lives in England, returned to Hong Kong for the purpose of visiting Myolie and Brendan, but she hasn’t been showing signs of wanting to return home.
“It’s become a privacy issue,” said a source. “After all, seeing each other and living with each other are completely different things. Even when the couple would go visit their mother in England, they stayed at a hotel. They never had to live with each other.”
The source added that because Myolie is filial, she hasn’t said anything yet. However, Myolie finds the lack of privacy stifling. She and her mother-in-law would also often get into disagreements. “When it comes to things like cooking meals, the elder wants to do it all on her own, and she’s also not really into Myolie’s suggestions. The biggest difference is on how they want to raise Brendan. Myolie knows her mother-in-law loves them all dearly, but it has become a stressful environment for her. Myolie wasn’t allowed to drink things cold, she nagged Myolie about the food she was eating, it was just all really stressful…”
Reportedly Myolie and her mother-in-law reached more disagreements when it came to hosting Brendan’s hundred day banquet, but Myolie managed to convince her husband, Philip Lee (李乘德), that she should be the one solely responsible for managing the event. “Of course, Myolie invited all [walled village] relatives,” claimed the source.
