While Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) was filming a reality television show in Mainland China, boyfriend Philip Lee was photographed out partying with three women in Hong Kong last week.
One of the women was Jacquelin Chong‘s (莊思敏) younger sister, Mona Chong (莊思華). Despite Phil going out late at night with the women, Myolie has complete confidence that he did not cheat while she was out of town.
According to an article in Popular Asians, tabloids published photos of Myolie and Phil kissing on the streets of Taiwan, forcing the couple to admit to their romance.
Myolie fell for the 40-year-old entrepreneur immediately after meeting through mutual friends. Passionately in love, Phil has allegedly proposed to Myolie after dating for only three months.
Formerly working in the financial sector in London, Phil established a headhunting agency upon his return to Hong Kong. As an investor in local nightclub Play, Phil is often spotted at late night parties.
Due to his impressive background and handsome features, Phil is also popular among female celebrities. He had dated Selena Li (李詩韻) for one year and was also linked to Miss Chinese International 2012, Kelly Cheung (張曦雯).
Myolie Trusts Phil
Asked about Phil going out with three women while she was away in China, Myolie said she trusts Phil completely. Indicating that Phil has his own social circle although he is not an industry insider, Myolie asked the media to give them space.
Jacquelin Chong also came to Phil’s defense, stating that she and her sisters have known him for a long time. Believing that he did not cheat in his relationship, Jacquelin said, “He’s a great guy. Congratulations to Myolie!”
Prompted that Phil had dated several female celebrities in the past, Jacquelin joked, “He’s very handsome, so that’s normal.”
Phil was evidently upset by the negative gossip since his relationship with Myolie was exposed.
Denying claims that he had proposed to Myolie, he wrote on his Facebook account, “I am very happy and my girlfriend is amazing – she is kind, caring, and considerate.
"She brings the best out of me, and we get on very well and I appreciate and respect her very much. But No, I have not proposed as per some rumors so thank you but no need to send your congratulations yet!”
