Hawick Lau and Yang Mi’s two-year marriage has suffered from divorce rumors on numerous occasions.
Despite the couple’s frequent assurance that they are still happily in love, a recent report once again highlighted the friction between them.
After their daughter was born two years ago, Hawick and Yang Mi returned back to work shortly, leaving their baby under the care of Hawick’s father, veteran actor Lau Dan.
Other than providing financial support, Hawick and Yang Mi rarely spent time with her and missed out on many childhood milestones, reports JayneStars.
The couple’s prolonged separation and lack of family quality time has continued to fuel rumors of marital strife.
As the media’s claims became more outlandish, the couple issued a legal warning, hoping to thwart any further adverse reports.
Lau Dan also voiced his anger over the matter. “We’ve already issued a legal warning letter. Don’t ask about it! They have a very good relationship! After issuing the legal letter, there will be an apology. It is all such a meaningless mess! Some people really do want to push buttons!”
Although Hawick hopes to reduce his workload in order to spend more quality time with his family, he has continued to reside in Beijing for the past several months.
However, Hawick and Yang Mi will video chat with their daughter, nicknamed “Little Sticky Rice”, every day.
The couple plans to return to Hong Kong to visit their daughter for Father’s Day. Lau Dan said he is eager to see what surprise Hawick has in store for him.
Although Lau Dan has taken care of “Little Sticky Rice” for two years, she is the happiest when she sees her parents.
Lau Dan said, “She was poked by my beard before, so whenever she kisses me, she will quickly turn away.”
When Lau Dan dropped off “Little Sticky Rice” at nursery school earlier, the Hong Kong paparazzi managed to take photos of her.
Although the family has been careful to preserve their privacy, Lau Dan felt helpless after the photos were published.
“It’s not as if she can’t see the light. Since they followed us so diligently, we let them [take photos].”
