8th May 2020 – (Hong Kong) The Hong Kong actress-singer, 38, Gillian Chung who signed a pre-nuptial agreement before marrying her Taiwanese boyfriend, Michael Lai, a doctor in 2019 has separated. Both parties have signed a separation agreement and it is unsure if both parties have started filing divorce proceedings. She hopes this will give both parties a cooling-off period. However, sources have leaked that they have already signed for divorce in March this year.
Gillian issued a statement via her company today and said that this is a private matter between her and Michael. They still respect each other and they will not respond to any questions as to their marriage. Michael had revealed that Gillian was the most beautiful and down to earth person he has ever met in his life but unfortunately he said that she no longer loves him. However, in response, Gillian’s close friend revealed that Michael is still very immature and he has been flirting around with social media influencers and young girls after they got married.
Their marriage apparently ended in less than 14 months. Gillian was one of the celebrities who was involved in a sex scandal with Edison Chen many years ago. Her nude photos and scandalous videos with Edison were widely shared on social media in 2008. A computer technician was convicted of three counts of obtaining access to a computer owned by Edison Chen with dishonest intent, and received a custodial sentence of eight and a half months. Chen admitted being the author and copyright owner of most of the photographs and videos, and stated that the private photographs had been stolen and published illegally without his consent.
