Roy Chow Sentenced to 18 Months of Probation for Injuring Wife
In a court hearing today, singer Roy Chow (周永恒) was sentenced to 18 months of probation for injuring his wife, Yu Chiu (趙頌茹). On August 24, Roy roughly shoved Yu to the ground at his mother’s house in Tin Shui Wai during an argument over his infidelity. Yu sustained injuries on her jaw and knees, which required stitches. At the time, Roy shouted angrily at Yu, “I’m going to kill you!”
The couple fought over Roy’s extra-marital affair with model, Ruby Lau (劉依靜). In a televised interview yesterday, Roy admitted that he had initiated the nine-month affair, even fantasizing his wife and lover sharing his bed together. He was consumed with guilt and regretted hurting Yu and breaking up the family due to his “despicable” actions. He loves Yu and their two daughters, and did not want the marriage to end in divorce.
At 9 a.m., Roy arrived in court dressed soberly in black while accompanied by his uncle and aunt. Roy remained silent and did not respond to the press’ questions.
Due to the presence of reporters, Yu did not appear at the court hearing.
The judge warned Roy that domestic violence is a serious offense, and that he should cherish his wife and family rather than resolve problems through violent means. Should he commit a repeated offense, his sentence will not be as lenient. Roy replied quietly that he understood.
Although Roy promised to end his relationship with lover, Ruby Lau, news reports surfaced today that Ruby is now acting as Roy’s manager. Ruby sent a message to an event organizer, asking Roy’s appearance fees to be increased due to his higher public exposure lately.
