TVB actress Coffee Lam (林芊妤) was speculated to have had quickie sex inside a public restroom.
She and a male friend, Will Lam (林知譽), shared a spacious restroom stall for people with disabilities located inside a Hong Kong mall, reports Jayne Stars.
Confronted by the press after the 30-minute tryst, Coffee said that she did not do anything indecent inside the restroom, explaining that it was only a “gathering to talk” .
Initially only known as Kenneth Ma’s (馬國明) voluptuous girlfriend in Triumph in the Skies 2 <衝上雲霄2>, Coffee primarily served as eye candy in the series. She is also good friends with model Liddy Li (李悅彤), who had an extra-marital affair with director Oxide Pang (彭順).
After breaking up with her ex-boyfriend several months ago, Coffee was spotted on a date with 31-year-old Will Lam at the IFC Mall. Will is the heir of High Fashion International Limited, which has a $900 million HKD market capitalization.
Although Coffee and Will apparently only met a few times, his hand was seen resting on Coffee’s buttocks after kissing her passionately.
The couple rushed into a public restroom and stayed for roughly 30 minutes. During that time, loud knocking sounds and heavy breathing were heard. After some shuffling, Coffee and her date began speaking heatedly.
Afraid that someone might knock on the door, Coffee openly asked to go to Will’s house. She also said to Will, “I like you, but I feel like you’re playing me.”
When Coffee and Will finally opened the restroom door, they were shocked to find reporters waiting outside. Will went back into the restroom, while Coffee explained that they were not doing anything indecent.
Known for its conservative management, TVB responded sternly over Coffee’s public restroom scandal. Management executive, Virginia Lok (樂易玲), said:
"TVB is very concerned about this matter. As an artiste, this is very inappropriate behavior. If moral standards are lacking, then there’s nothing else to say. It is highly inappropriate for a woman to act in this manner in a public place.”
Ms. Lok said that “it was very clear what had happened” and it may be necessary to re-arrange Coffee’s current work projects due to her negative image.
Coffee’s Cries For Help
Only 25-years-old, Coffee’s incident may potentially burn all bridges and ruin any further advancement in her acting career. On her Sina Weibo blog today, Coffee admitted that she made a mistake and asked for forgiveness for her “lax behavior at a public place”.
She hoped the media would give her some space, “Who doesn’t make a mistake? I will change.”
Some fans expressed disappointment in Coffee’s lack of ethics, while others were concerned whether her career will be over. However, it was not ruled out that Coffee may even have staged the incident for publicity.
