Matthew and good friend Vin Choi were spotted at a nightclub in Central. Matthew was seen dancing intimately with a Japanese-speaking woman, who was later proven to be ex-girlfriend Haruka Kinami, reports 21CN.
Matthew had his arms around Haruka throughout the whole night. When he kissed her on the cheek, Haruka turned around and kissed him passionately on the lips, reports Jaynestars.
A handful of clubgoers recognized Matthew that night, but Matthew did not seem to mind and happily accepted photo requests.
Around 2 a.m., Matthew and his friends left for Volar, another popular nightclub in the area.
Matthew and Haruka arrived at the club separately. Hand-in-hand, the couple left the club together at approximately a.m.
He helped the drunken Haruka into his car, and drove her back to her hotel in Lan Kwai Fong. He then returned home immediately afterwards.
In a phone interview, Matthew said, “We’re not dating, just very close friends. Since she is in Hong Kong now, I decided to hang out with her.”
When asked why he was hugging and kissing a friend, he said “We were all drunk so that’s why we did it.”
Would Matthew consider dating her again when given the chance? “I really didn’t want her to leave me. I’ve thought of patching things up, but she is a Japanese artist. It would be great if she can stay [in Hong Kong], but that needs serious consideration. Unfortunately, she’s leaving.”
