Lily Ho had to hide new romance to avoid upsetting 77-year-old boss?

6 June 2015 / 1 year 4 months ago

With a 50-year age difference, Lily Ho’s (何傲兒) “romance” with 77-year-old businessman Lam Kin Ming (林建名) made headlines last year.

According to a Jayne Stars report, after leaving TVB, Lily has signed with the elderly businessman, who appears to have a soft spot for Lily. Hoping not to provoke Lam, Lily hid her romance with actor Hinson Chow (周子揚).

The claims of a “grandfather-granddaughter romance” were quickly shot down by Lily, who said Lam Kin Ming was a close family friend. Although Lily often accompanied Lam to concerts and other events, she only saw him as a respected senior.

Last year, Lily’s relationship with TVB singer Hinson Chow was exposed. When Lam learned of the news, he cried before reporters; Lam’s actions perplexed the press despite claims that he and Lily were not involved.

Although Lily and Hinson soon announced that they had split up, they were spotted traveling to South Korea together. It was speculated that the couple wished to bring their relationship underground. Recently, Lily was spotted entering Hinson’s apartment and staying there for 22 hours.

Hoping to avoid provoking Lam, Lily continued to handle her romance in an understated manner. An insider said, “Although Hinson’s father owns land in Sai Kung, his wealth cannot be compared to Lam Kin Ming. Hoping not to anger her boss, Lily can only date Hinson in secret while pursuing true love.”

“Wedding Ceremony” with Lam Kin Ming

Lily, who has ended her seven-year relationship with TVB, recently signed with Lam Kin Ming’s new agency, Big Honor Entertainment. At Lily’s signing ceremony last week, their rumors were once again brought back to the forefront. The signing ceremony was described by the media to be like a wedding, with Lily wearing a white bridal dress and Lam Kin Ming wearing a nice black tux. Both Lily’s family and Lam’s goddaughter, Renee Dai (戴夢夢), were present at “the wedding.” Lam King Ming also presented a ring to Lily.

Using their “wedding” as a gimmick for the signing ceremony, Lily thanked the press for starting the rumor. “Thank you to the person who created this romance. To this day, I still remember the classic headlines that the media created. Thanks to the media, our romance has finally come to a happy ending today.”
