Yet another celebrity marriage is rumoured to be on the rocks, as Hong Kong diva Kelly Chen’s husband, businessman Alex Lau, is reportedly cheating on her with Japanese actress Ayase Haruka.
Kelly, 41, has been in a happy relationship with Alex for 16 years. The couple married in 2008, and currently enjoy an idyllic life with their two sons.
However, news broke yesterday that Alex was spotted having French cuisine with Haruka at a gathering. Although there were a lot of other people present, the two behaved intimately, sharing a menu and looking at each other tenderly. They spoke in soft tones, and Alex purportedly even seemed unwilling when Haruka had to leave – sparking rumours that their relationship is not as simple as it seems.
Last Thursday, Kelly was spotted wearing a mask and looking much plumper at the Hong Kong Society of Professional Medical Care’s Medical Laboratory at Cheung Sha Wan. The laboratory specialises in pregnancy and pre-wedding body checkups, leading to speculations that Kelly is trying to give birth to a daughter in order to win back her husband’s heart.
When reporters contacted Kelly about the rumours, she replied, “You can tell that the angle of the photo [taken of me] is bad. I don’t suspect him (Alex) at all; it’s just a friend’s birthday party. I definitely believe in my husband.”
