Local actress Yvonne Lim was recently seen on a date with her new beau, former Taiwanese boyband B.A.D member Alex, in Taipei. The two held hands and leaned on each other while walking to a restaurant near Alex’s place, and even openly kissed in public.
In early March, the 37-year-old actress applied for leave to go on a holiday with her aunt. However, it appears that her “aunt” was only a smokescreen and that she had flown to Taiwan to meet up with her boyfriend. Yvonne is believed to have met Alex via the couple’s mutual friend, Taiwanese actress Ady An.
Responding to the rumours, MediaCorp artiste management stated that Yvonne was surprised about the reports as she has always been “low profile and mysterious” about her love life. “Thanks everyone for the concern. Please give my private life a little more space,” the actress said via her manager.
Additionally, Yvonne’s manager refuted the claims that the couple is cohabiting. “She was shooting a period drama in Hengdian previously and she spent the last three months filming World At Your Feet in Singapore. [Cohabitation] is impossible,” she clarified.
Yvonne, who has been actively developing her career in China for the past few years, will soon return to Singapore for a new Ch8 drama Blessings, co-starring Shaun Chen and Jesseca Liu.
Alex ventured into trading business after B.A.D disbanded in 2005. The 34-year-old tied the knot with Taiwanese model Sharon Hsu in 2009, before announcing their “amicable divorce” last November. When asked on her ex-husband’s new relationship, Sharon commented that Alex and her are like “family” and said: “I’ve heard him talking about Yvonne. I give him my blessings.”
