Wallace Chung (鐘漢良) was recently captured on camera with his rumored wife Rita Tse (謝易樺), and accompanied by a cute little long-haired girl who is allegedly the couple’s daughter.
Wallace has been filming Bounty Hunter <賞金獵人> in Thailand. Last month, Wallace was spotted sharing the same hotel room as Rita and the little girl in Bangkok. The family allegedly celebrated Wallace’s 41st birthday together on November 30.
Regarding the sighting in Thailand, Wallace’s manager Miss Zhu said that she cannot represent him to respond on the matter. Asked if Wallace is indeed married, she said, “I haven’t heard of this.”
Wallace has been suspected to be married to designer Rita Tse for years. However, he consistently maintains that the rumors are false. Below is a recap of how Wallace has denied his alleged marriage on several occasions.
When promoting the drama, The Demi Gods and Semi Devils <天龍八部>, Wallace was asked specifically if the rumors of his hidden marriage were true. The question put to him was, “Most stars who approach the age of 40 and are involved in few romantic rumors tend to eventually make either of two revelations: that they have been secretly married or that they are homosexual. Which of the two camps do you belong to?”
Wallace responded, “Uh…I don’t really identify with either of the two possibilities. Perhaps because of my personality, I tend to keep things more low-profile.”
Wallace was then asked specifically if the rumors of his marriage were false. He said, “You can’t trust those rumors too easily.” On whether Wallace wanted to have a child, he expressed, “This is a natural desire…a rite of passage that every person goes through.”
At the time, Wallace was in the middle of filming Bodyguards and Assassins <十月圍城>, while the rumors that he was secretly married were raging. Wallace had rejected all personal interviews and only accepted group interviews.
At a press event for Bodyguards and Assassins, with the rumors in mind, the media aimed a series of questions at Wallace, “Are you married?” “Why won’t you answer that question?”, “When will you make it public?”, etc. Wallace had no response apart from an awkward, “Thank you for your concern!”
The moment the press event ended, Wallace immediately left.
When promoting the film, My Sunshine < 何以笙簫默>, Wallace was once again asked about his marital status. Predictably, Wallace politely refused to address the subject and merely expressed that there was a goddess in his heart, but he did not feel comfortable sharing too many details about her.
When participating in the variety television program, Go to School <我們上學吧>, Wallace was asked by an audience member, “I heard you are someone who is married with a child.” All the celebrities present, Selina (from SHE), Kaili Zhang(张凱麗), and Sean Sun (孫藝洲) responded with shocked expressions. Wallace was at a loss for words and he initially waved his hands rigorously before saying, “Don’t believe those little rumors.”
Another audience member asked what if he could never find his other half in this world. Wallace responded, “It’s already the 21st century. You can be happy living by yourself. You don’t necessarily need a partner.” Wallace added, “Love yourself so that you can be prepared when love hits you.”
