Steven Cheung Asks Netizens for Help

With a family of four young kids, former Boy’z member Steven Cheung (張致恒) and wife, Au Yin Man (區燕雯) have
more than once proclaimed their financial struggles since they tied the knot back in 2019. Recently sharing about their eldest son’s autism and hyperactivity diagnosis, Man Man revealed in a social update on March 1 that she was at her wits’ end, “A resolution looks near, but I can’t even hold on until then, what should I do? There won’t be a miracle, how do I continue…”

About six hours later that same evening, Steven followed suit and took to social media where he uploaded a QR code linked to his banking account, asking for financial help from netizens to help him tide over the period. “I know doing this is not a wise decision, but I am really at the point of desperation, after this month everything will be back to normal, so I really hope for everyone to lend us a little help,” he wrote.

Man Man previously shared in a lengthy Instagram story about her parenting stress, and how netizens did not understand the challenges the couple faced while conveniently faulting them for not working. Revealing her suicidal thoughts, she mentioned how it was impossible to care for four little ones with just one of them, and that the couple was currently awaiting a domestic helper so one of them could head out to work two jobs. In a rare display, Man Man even thanked Steven for learning to “care for the kids”.

    He had help from lots of people he knew before. Even his former bandmate set up a concert so he can earn money to support his family. But he wasted the chance.

    1. Yeah I thought the same…how can you hire help when you can’t afford help? But at the same time, daycare costs are also exorbitant, so lots of parents suffer with paying their whole paycheck towards childcare so that their resume won’t show any gap in work experience. I can understand that…but this means she has to hire at least 2 people for the job. For some peace and quiet outside the home, I can see why she would rather work.

      If her first kid really has autism, that’s a double whammy. Kids with autism are really, really difficult to care for.

      I feel bad for their family. They should really consider going back to a YouTube career. It’s passive income that might help. A little pay is better than nothing….

  2. They need to learn how to support themselves. I see the potential for this family to get worse

  3. I don’t get why people pop out so many kids when they don’t have the financial means to care for them. They need to use birth control.
