Nick Cheung Denies Depression and Sleeping Separately from Esther Kwan

Nick Cheung (張家輝) trained day and night to get into shape for the boxing film Unbeatable <激戰>, and even revealed his hard-earned 6-pack figure in an exclusive photo shoot with JET magazine three months ago. Nick’s “chocolate abs” quickly became the talk of the town, but what remains hidden beneath that glorious physique?

The pressure of body-building had reportedly taken a great toll on Nick’s mental and physical health. Reports claimed that not only did Nick show signs of depression relapse, he and his actress wife, Esther Kwan (關詠荷), also had to sleep in separate rooms.

Before Nick accepted the offer to shoot Unbeatable, he kept a strict diet during the filming of thriller movie Nightfall <大追捕>. Having to lose weight so quickly in a short amount of time, Esther was worried about Nick’s health. When Nick decided to film Unbeatable, Esther reportedly “exploded” with anger. She wanted to bring Nick to a doctor, but Nick refused, afraid that medication would impact his muscle gain. Esther and Nick constantly argued.

Not wanting their daughter to hear their arguments, Esther told Nick to only return home after their daughter, Brittany, fell asleep. For over six months, Nick reportedly spent long nights at the film studios, and when he returned home, he would only sleep in the living room.

Reports also indicated that Esther and Nick avoided each other as much as possible. One night, the paparazzi caught Esther shopping in a pharmacy alone. Literally five minutes after returning home, Nick appeared and left with a friend.

The couple have also stopped appearing in functions together, and only Esther was seen taking their daughter to school.

Nick’s Response

Nick found the rumors hilarious, and clarified in a phone interview yesterday, “The only times when I do not sleep in the same bed with my wife is when I leave town for work, or like a few weeks ago when I took my daughter to Tokyo Disneyland. Other than that, we’ve never slept in separate rooms before. Also, I am not depressed. Unbeatable took in over a million HKD in advanced screenings. The box office is doing well. I feel great right now!”

    Whatever their arguments may be it seems to stem from her concern for him and his dedication to his work. I am sure they will make up and all that because it stems from the fact that she loves him a lot.

        he looks more of a eunuch than of an emperor and he’s aiming to look like that, his thinking is kinda weird, btw, he’s sending a wrong message to his little girl at home by not eating well

    I wonder how the media would truly know what is going on in their household??? Only they would know that unless they shared their problems with close friends and they said something. But I do not think that is the case. However if any of this is true then it shows how much Esther loves Nick and they would most likely make up.

    I don’t know about this article, but I do remember on some interview show (perhaps the one with Sandra Ng?) he declared he suffered from depression in the past…

    HK paparazzi. How to we distinguish from genuine news and reports that are blown way out of proportion? Or is every media publication in HK the same? The readers themselves have to sieve through the exaggerated stories to get to the truth inside the lie.

    For that matter is this the situation with media publications around the world?

    Am I just being too naive in believing in the existence of journalistic integrity?
