Fifty-year-old Maggie Cheung (張曼玉) is enjoying a half-retired life with her new beau.
In January of this year, Maggie was spotted walking her dog with her new boyfriend Adrian da Silva, a member of the indie bands Audiotraffic and Cry. Adrian, who is half-Spanish and half-Chinese, is 15 years younger than Maggie.
According to Jayne Stars, sources say that the couple met several years ago in a recording studio. Maggie, who gradually retired from acting over the years, had been spending more time behind-the-scenes to make music.
Maggie and Adrian bonded through their love for music and eventually got together after Maggie’s consistent pursuits. Though they do not live together, Adrian was spotted on numerous occasions spending the night at Maggie’s estate in Nam Wan.
In November, the paparazzi spotted an extremely thin Maggie shopping with a group of friends at a supermarket in Causeway Bay. Although covered from head to toe and wearing sunglasses, many shoppers recognized Maggie and gawked at her, pointing out how much weight she had lost recently.
Maggie ignored the murmurs and happily shopped with her friends, picking out snacks and various pork jerky. When more people began to recognize her and the crowd thickened, Maggie and her friends quickly paid for their groceries and left the store.
