Amigo Choi’s (崔建邦) career nosedived after he was arrested for beating his ex-girlfriend, Elizabete Kwong (鄺敏慧), in 2009. His image tarnished, the TVB MC retreated to behind-the-scenes curtains and worked as a production assistant for a meager salary of $13,000 HKD per month. After a year of staying in the shadows, Amigo finally returned to the MC platform earlier last year.
Amigo made a victorious return, but with his reputation damaged, it was reported that the 34-year-old only has the means to earn $20,000 HKD per month. Rumored on-again, off-again girlfriend Natalie Tong (唐詩詠), on the other hand, has been earning at least $140,000 HKD a month.
Although Amigo had reportedly cheated on long-time girlfriend Natalie, she remained supportive and encouraging to Amigo through the years. Though the former couple denied getting back together, mutual friend Kenneth Ma (馬國明) told the press that he will not “pursue [his] friend’s other half,” accidentally leaking Amigo and Natalie’s relationship to the press when he was attempting to clarify his own rumors.
A source close to Natalie said, “Natalie really cannot leave Amigo’s grasp. Although Stephen Wong (黃嘉樂) actively pursued her when they were shooting A Fistful of Stances <鐵馬尋橋> [in 2009], and she even had [lesbian] rumors with former RTHK DJ Vera Lee (李慧娜) afterwards, she could never let Amigo go. She is always there to help him. We can do nothing else but wish them happiness.”
In mid-June, Natalie was seen driving around a Tsim Sha Tsui parking lot, waiting for Amigo to finish his MC work at a nearby shopping mall. Natalie immediately took Amigo back to his Tseung Kwan O home as soon as the event finished.
Aside from being the chauffeur, Natalie earned twice more than Amigo and has also become the “breadwinner” in the relationship. A few days ago, Natalie was seen shopping with a pregnant friend, who lives in Wong Tai Sin. When her friend was looking at baby cribs, Natalie rushed to the bedding section of the store and grabbed a few queen-sized bed sheet sets, perhaps for Amigo’s home. The friends left the store an hour later.
