After Taiwanese actor Roy Chiu (邱澤) and mainland Chinese actress Tiffany Tang (唐嫣)’s high-profile breakup earlier this year, it was rumored that Roy was romantically linked with Taiwanese singer/actress Tia Li (李毓芬), who was accused of being the instigator of the breakup. Although both parties have denied that they are in a relationship, Taiwan’s Next Magazine <壹周刊> recently reported that Tia was spotted driving Roy back to his home late at night.
Roy and Tia met in 2011 when filming the Taiwanese idol drama Office Girls <小資女孩向前衝>. They quickly became good friends, with Tia saying that Roy’s outer appearance was appealing to every girl, and Roy admitting that he and Tia had a “special” emotion. In February of this year, Tia was seen visiting Roy on the set of his upcoming drama Wine Beauty <紅酒俏佳人>, causing many to suspect that she was the third party in the relationship. Angered by the news, both Roy and Tia maintained that they were merely friends.
Afterward, Roy confirmed that he had indeed broken up with Tiffany. The news left Tiffany distraught and emotionally unstable, and it was even reported that she had attempted suicide.
According to Next Magazine, Roy and Tia were next spotted with a group of friends in late June. After partying until the early hours of the morning, Tia drove Roy back to his house. When she discovered that they were being followed by reporters, Tia quickly scampered, leaving Roy to fend for himself.
Roy explained that the cast and crew of Miss Rose <螺絲小姐要出嫁> had arranged a gathering, and that he could not drive home because he had drunk too much. Amanda, the director of Tia’s management company, likewise denied that the two were in a relationship, and insisted that Tia had dropped him off at his house on her way home. “Even friends would do this!” added Amanda.
According to the report, Tiffany’s manager Ji Rujing (紀茹璟) heavily criticized Roy after learning about the news. “Until now, he hasn’t mentioned breaking up,” she said. “Because of [the breakup], Tiffany was already unable to work for two months. If she sees this piece of news, her mood will definitely suffer, and she will be sad for a long time again.”
