Patrick Tang (鄧健泓) was officially single again after breaking up with his girlfriend of two years, Katy Kung (龔嘉欣), last year. But his single status did not last very long, for it seems that Patrick has finally found another romantic interest to ease his heartbroken heart – Kayi Cheung (張嘉兒).
The 38-year-old Patrick and 29-year-old Kayi allegedly became close friends after working together in last year’s Tiger Cubs <飛虎>. Patrick was often Kayi’s driver during their four-month collaboration.
Patrick is well-known as the industry’s “Miss Hong Kong killer.” He dated War of the Genders <男親女愛> star, Marsha Yuan (原子鏸), who was the first runner-up for the crown of 1999’s Miss Hong Kong pageant, for four years before breaking up in 2004. The ex-flames insisted that they are still good friends, and have remained in contact in the years after their break-up.
Patrick then dated Selena Li (李詩韻), a former 2003 Miss Hong Kong contestant, for about five years. The couple broke up in 2009. A year later, Patrick and Katy Kung began dating; their relationship formally ended in the summer of 2012.
As the winner of the 2007 Miss Hong Kong pageant, Kayi appears to be exactly Patrick’s type. On Sunday night, Kayi and Patrick were caught on a movie date together. The couple, along with a female friend, went to watch the film, The Impossible, at the Golden Harvest Cinemas in Hung Hom.
After the movie ended, the trio immediately proceeded to the parking lot to pick up their car. Patrick stayed a distance behind Kayi, who covered her face with her jacket collar, after he noticed that he was getting recognized by onlookers.
When Patrick went to pay for the parking lot fee, Kayi and her female friend went to Burger King. Kayi, however, did not go in the fast food restaurant, and waited for Patrick outside before walking in with him.
The trio left Hung Hom in Patrick’s blue Mini Cooper half an hour later, with Kayi being the driver. Kayi first dropped off their female friend in the Tsui Ping Estate. Afterwards, Kayi drove to Tsuen Wan, where Patrick lives.
Patrick and Kayi appeared to have discovered the paparazzi trailing behind, and instead of parking in the Tsuen Wan parking lot, Kayi chose to park in an alleyway behind the building. After a few minutes of conversation, Kayi left the car and proceeded to enter the building through the backdoor. Patrick then drove the Mini Cooper to the parking lot.
Patrick looked stoned upon seeing the paparazzi waiting for him inside the parking lot. Asked if he was currently in a relationship, Patrick mumbled, “No.” When the reporters asked where his girlfriend was, Patrick immediately asked, “What are you talking about?”
A female security guard saw the commotion and immediately helped Patrick enter the apartment complex.
In a phone interview with Kayi yesterday, she denied her dating rumors with Patrick. “Sitting in my colleague’s car is nothing out of the ordinary, I’ve sat in Wu Fung’s (胡楓) car four times! It’s called being a gentleman.”
She also denied that she stayed in Patrick’s house for the night, “I never went to his house. I’ll rather date someone who is not in the circle. Patrick is a friend. I will ask him to introduce more of his friends that are not in the circle to me.”
