Last week, mainland Chinese actress and film investor, Tian Pujun (田朴珺), revealed her close relationship with Hong Kong director Peter Chan (陳可辛). Pujun’s spilling of her involvement with Peter for the past 10 years raised eyebrows as he was concurrently dating Sandra Ng (吳君如), with whom they have a 7-year-old daughter together.
Calling Peter her soul mate, Pujun shared bits of Peter’s everyday life in a column she wrote for a magazine. Her knowledge of Peter is astounding, and could even list out the essentials Peter would pack in his suitcases.
Sandra faced the rumors calmly and joked on her Weibo, “It does not matter, as I know his heart (and money) belong to me!”
Sandra Caught Peter in Bed
Though Sandra reacted to the rumors in a carefree manner, a tabloid magazine recently reported that she had known about Pujun for quite a while. Last year, it was reported that Sandra had confronted Peter and Pujun in their hotel room in Beijing. Threatening to leave him and bring their 7-year-old daughter Jillian Chan (陳是知) with her, Peter agreed to break it off with Pujun.
A source allegedly close to the pair reported, “Sandra was smart. When Peter was filming American Dreams in China <中国合伙人> [in Beijing], her calls would fly to his voice mail. Sandra knew something was up so she secretly flew to Beijing to meet with him. Finally, she confronted Peter and Pujun in their hotel room. With Sandra’s strong personality, she wouldn’t let something like this slide. Peter then said that he could never leave Sandra and their daughter, and that he would always return home. Because he wanted to find inspiration for his film, he wanted to keep his life exciting. Sandra threatened a breakup, and told him that she would bring their daughter with her. Peter really loves his daughter, so he immediately promised Sandra that he would break things off with that woman.”
Peter and Pujun allegedly met in 2004, when Pujun was shooting Peter’s Dumplings <三更 2之餃子>. With Pujun’s strong connections with various Chinese film investors, Peter and Pujun quickly grew close. Pujun is also credited as executive producer for American Dreams in China.
These claims were never clarified, as both parties refused to respond to the rumors. Sandra turned down phone interviews. Peter, on the other hand, is busy promoting American Dreams in China at the 2013 Chinese Film Festival, which is currently being held in St. Petersburg, Russia.
Peter Did Not Want to Get Married
Although the couple have a 7-year-old daughter, Peter and Sandra never married. A source said, “Actually, Sandra considered marriage with Peter for their daughter, but Peter was feeling hesitant. Said he didn’t really believe in marriage. He and Sandra lived in the same building for many years, but they don’t live in the same flat. They say it’s because they want to give each other more creative space, but it’s actually more because they don’t want their daughter to control them. Peter mentioned that [Sandra] is in charge of his finances, but that’s not really the case. For many years, they never shared the same properties, because they never married. If anything happens in the future, Sandra wouldn’t be able to divide his assets.”
A Player Spots Another Player
Sandra once mentioned in an earlier interview that she found it “normal” to see Peter with other women. She said, “A man in this industry who has money, fame, and status but no women? Are you kidding me?” She then added, “But nothing can pass my eyes.”
Despite Peter’s countless cheating rumors, Sandra remained supportive of Peter. However, Hong Kong director and actor, Matt Chow (鄒凱光), spilled on a recent program that a famous Hong Kong director who is known for being loyal to his celebrity wife is actually quite amorous in his private life.
Matt said, “There is a famous director who cheats around. He has a celebrity wife. He’s always pretending to be a good husband but in private, he actually has many girlfriends.”
In a follow-up interview, Matt was asked if the famous director he mentioned was good friend, Peter Chan. He said quietly, “I don’t know if I said that. I really don’t know. It’s been a long time… I don’t remember.” Asked if Peter is a flirtatious person, Matt laughed, “I don’t know! But compared to me, he’s not even qualified.” Professing that he once dated 20 girls at once, was Matt implying that Peter had at least 10 girlfriends before?
