While Bosco Wong (黃宗澤) understands the recent public attention over his new relationship with model Vanessa Yeung (楊崢), he hopes that the media will exercise restraint when it comes to drilling his family members.
Bosco and Vanessa’s high-profile relationship has been the talk of the town and has generated much controversy over their age gap and Vanessa’s dating history, reports an article on Jayne Stars.
Although both are aware of the expected surge of attention due to their public figure status, local reporters may have overstepped their boundaries when they made repeated attempts to reach Bosco’s mother for comments.
Raised mainly by his mother after his parents’ divorce, Bosco is known to be a very filial son who loves his mother dearly. Working hard to give her a comfortable life, he has given his mother complete control over his finances and always consults her about any business investments. She also helps out occasionally at his newly launched oyster bar, personally handling the day-to-day operations to ensure its success.
After Bosco’s new love was exposed, many reporters began harassing his mother hoping to break exclusive details. Worried about her well-being, Bosco spoke up on February 11 asking the media to leave his mother alone.
“She has high blood pressure so I don’t want her to receive too much shock. She was really scared when a reporter suddenly ran up to her to snap photos [at the oyster bar]. What if she faints? I hope everyone will stop before it goes too far.”
As for Vanessa’s intent to join TVB, Bosco expressed his support and has no problem portraying a couple on-screen with his real life love.
“Our relationship is separate from our work. It will depend on the company’s plans, but it doesn’t matter because it’s just acting.”
