Lawrence Ng (吳啓華) announced his imminent divorce with his second wife, Shi Yangzi (石洋子), after a seven-year marriage.
Although previous news reported that it was Shi Yangzi’s involvement with another man that caused the rift between the couple, recent rumors instead claim that Lawrence has been romantically involved with 2012 Miss Hong Kong first runner-up, Jacqueline Wong (黃心穎).
The two recently collaborated in the currently-airing Tomorrow is Another Day (再戰明天) as siblings, reports Jaynestars.
Lawrence was exceptionally attentive towards 25-year-old Jacqueline on set and often praised his younger colleague.
Jacqueline laughed at the reports and adamantly denied the rumors, “We do not contact each other outside of work. He portrays my elder brother in the series, so we are more familiar with each other as a result.”
Jacqueline further stressed that she is not interested in being romantically involved with a married man.
After announcing his divorce intentions, Lawrence was spotted taking his daughter out shopping.
“Shi Yangzi and I have been separated for quite some time. We’ve tried to make the marriage work, but to no avail. We split amicably and there is no third party involved.”
Lawrence also expressed that the ex-couple intends to raise their daughter together in order to provide her with a healthy and happy childhood regardless of their divorce.
