They have always been known for their strong bond and affection. However, shocking rumours recently emerged, alleging that Leung had been secretly involved with 25-year-old singer Cheng Xiao. This news sent shockwaves throughout various circles. Cheng Xiao swiftly denied the rumours, stating, “They are completely false and outrageous.” She aimed to clarify the misinformation surrounding the alleged affair.

Recently, Lau posted a short video in which Leung was seen sitting at the dining table, enjoying a plate of grilled peppers. She can be heard off-camera asking, “Do you like the taste, Tony Leung?” playfully addressing her husband by his full name. Leung looks at the camera, nods, and gives a thumbs-up, revealing his adorable and childlike side. Even the daughter of actress Anna Ueyama, Hilary, who was sitting next to him, couldn’t help but burst into laughter.
Lau’s endearing video of her husband easily garnered over 400,000 likes and sparked lively discussions among netizens.
