Unilaterally announcing breaking up from boyfriend of nine years, Gregory Lee (李泳豪), yesterday, Shirley Yeung (楊思琦) was immediately faced with allegations that she was pregnant with another man’s baby. Regarding the pregnancy rumors, Shirley neither denied or admitted them, “I do not want to respond.” Gregory admitted that Shirley used pregnancy as a reason to break-up with him, “She did say that she [was pregnant] but I do not believe her!”
Shirley Pregnant With Andy’s Baby?
Aside from losing his loved one, Gregory had to face a break-up reason that “no man can withstand.” According to an inside source, when Shirley cried in front of Gregory and asked for a break-up, she announced that she was pregnant. After telling Gregory who the father of the baby was, she insisted on asking for a break-up. Despite being extremely hurt, Gregory wanted to save their relationship. However, Shirley’s unwavering decision delivered a big blow upon him.
Since Shirley’s alleged pregnancy was very alarming, reporters contacted Gregory to confirm the news. Gregory stated, “Shirley did say that she was [pregnant], but I do not believe her.” The press contacted Shirley regarding the pregnancy rumors. Her first reaction was , “Who told you about the rumors? Why are such rumors are circulating? Anyhow, I will not respond.” As of yesterday, Shirley did not deny or admit her pregnant state. She took the initiative to send Gregory her blessings, “Having been together with Gregory for so long, he is a very, very good man. We are still friends after breaking-up. I wish that he finds eternal happiness.”
Shirley Still Loves Gregory?
Aside from Shirley’s pregnancy being an enigma, it was unclear whether her break-up decision was truly final. From the surface, it appeared that Shirley made up her mind to end her relationship with Gregory. However, Gregory’s elder brother, Lee Wing Hon (李泳漢), revealed that Shirley’s behavior did not match her words. “[Last night] right after midnight, she text messaged Gregory, ‘I still love you; I miss you very much!'” Wing Hon noted, “I don’t know what her intentions are. I hope she does not send such text messages anymore. Each time Gregory receives a text message, he grows more emotionally unstable.” When asked about Shirley’s pregnant state, Wing Hon refused to comment.
Gregory Crying for a Week
To prevent Gregory’s mind from dwelling on negative thoughts, his family has been very supportive and waited for him to get off work at 4 AM yesterday. Gregory was very moved by the support others showed, “I want to thank Raymond Wong (黃浩然), Chan Chi Kin (陳志健) and Tsui Wing (徐榮). They talked to me for a very long time. I want to thank them for their caring.” (Shirley said she broke-up with you several months ago, but why did she celebrate your birthday together last month?) “When I was at work last night, everyone was very shocked [by the break-up news]. Only several days ago, Shirley came to have dinner with me.”
Reporters crowded around Gregory at TVB City last night, who appeared extremely saddened. When asked whether he knew Andy Ng (Shirley’s alleged new romantic interest) and if Andy was her high school classmate, Gregory sobbed. After the press’ repeated questioning, Gregory said, “I want to understand the matter first before I explain the situation. I have been filming a series and do not have time to find Shirley.” When asked whether Shirley was pregnant, Gregory said in a weak voice, “I do not believe it. I do not believe it!”
Gregory indicated that Shirley had moved to Clear Water Bay Peninsula in April for a more convenient commute to work. When asked whether Gregory felt their relationship was awry at that time, he said, “I could not sense it. She still cared about whether I had enough sleep and whether I was eating well.” (Can you explain what the phrase, ‘a man’s greatest taboo’ meant?) “I will not respond. Anyway, we did not have any arguments. I don’t know what happened. I am very concerned about her condition right now.”
Gregory indicated his confused emotional state and noted that if the relationship can not be saved, he will accept the situation. He still loved Shirley deeply, “Whatever happens in the future, I will always help Shirley if anything happens.”
Gregory Denied Car Racing Caused the Couple’s Split
When the press pointed out that Gregory was addicted to car racing, he said irritatedly, “It’s not the first time this issue came up. In 2008, a team sponsored me and paid for the training, hotel and meals related to the racing competition. Reports claiming that I used Shirley’s money to enter the racing competition were false. The sponsoring team wished to pursue legal action for libel as well.”
Gregory’s father, Lee Ka Ding (李家鼎) said, “My son only told me about the incident [Shirley’s pregnancy[ yesterday. He has been crying for one week. He was afraid that we would worry and did not want to tell us. Now my son is grievous everyday and kept asking why. I did not sleep the entire night.” When asked whether Shirley was dissatisfied with Gregory’s race car habit, Lee Ka Ding said angrily, “That’s an excuse! When you are in love, even playing with feces is okay!”
Reporters asked TVB executive, Virginia Lok (樂易玲), whether Shirley was pregnant. Ms. Lok said, “She is not pregnant. She discussed her break-up with me. They made this decision after careful thought. Hopefully, this will not interfere with their work.”
Jayne: When I heard about Shirley’s pregnancy rumors from Aly, I did not believe it. However, based on Gregory’s reply, it appears that Shirley may indeed be pregnant with another man’s baby and thus decided to end her relationship with Gregory. Perhaps Shirley still loved Gregory and thus the break-up decision was as heart-breaking to her as much as to Gregory. Thus, she still text messaged him the day before to say that she still loved him.
Shirley and Gregory’s break-up is quite dramatic, especially with Gregory’s deep love for her and the pregnancy rumors. Gregory’s statement that he will be there to help Shirley no matter what happens in the future indeed seems to support the pregnant claims. He does not seem angry with Shirley, only confused by her break-up decision. Perhaps he is in denial….
