TVB Plans to Fire Coffee Lam After Sex Scandal
TVB actress Coffee Lam’s (林芊妤) public restroom sex scandal caused a stir in recent gossip headlines. Having a 30-minute tryst with heir Will Lam (林知譽) inside a mall restroom, Coffee was criticized for her loose and unethical behavior. TVB executive, Virginia Lok (樂易玲), was pressed for comments regarding Coffee’s behavior at an earlier dinner event. Clearly displeased, Ms. Lok revealed TVB will likely terminate the 24-year-old’s management contract.
Coffee left for Mainland China soon after the scandalous tabloids surfaced, and will return to meet with TVB tomorrow. Ms. Lok announced, “We have spoken with the company, and have reached a consensus with the legal department. Everything will be discussed thoroughly with her tomorrow. Like I said before, an artiste’s personality and conduct are very important. This time, her situation is quite serious.”
Asked if this meant TVB has plans to fire Coffee, Ms. Lok stated, “We do have plans [to do so], but she will get a chance to explain tomorrow. However, it depends on whether or not TVB accepts her explanation.”
Ms. Lok added angrily that Coffee’s behavior is definitely problematic, “She never gave TVB a call after leaving Hong Kong. Our coworkers learned she is not in the city via news reports. All full-time contracted artistes must notify TVB if they are to leave Hong Kong, but she continuously defied what her contract states. She is not allowed to destroy her personal image or the company’s image.”
The TVB executive added that if Coffee experiences financial struggles, they will consider paying wages until the contract termination date.
When Coffee was asked to comment on TVB’s intentions to fire her, she responded, “I will try to find out from the company about tis decision. I don’t have any comments for now.”
