Hong Kong tabloids claim that Macau gambling tycoon, Alvin Chau has a new love interest, Meko Chiu.
Meko is reportedly a model, and media said that she resembles Hong Kong songstress, Kay Tse.
Recently, Meko posted a photo of her in a private jet on Facebook and wrote: "Private jet with my love, Alvin Chau."
In the photo, Alvin's back was captured and it seems like he was in a discussion with his assistant.
Meko also posted a photo of Alvin, which is believed to have been taken before they boarded the plane.
According to AsianPopNews via tabloids, Meko is said to have met the tycoon at a night spot. Alvin's wife, Heidi Chan was in Australia in September and Mandy was in England with her daughter at that time.
Tabloids speculate that Alvin and Meko could have hooked up during that time.
Meko later deleted Alvin's photo and also changed the post to "Private je, LOL."
On Thursday, Meko clarified her relationship with Alvin, and said they were not a couple.
She wrote on Facebook: "I am just accompanying my friend on the trip. This is the first time I've met Alvin. He is my idol. Please do not be mistaken."
During a telephone interview, Meko once again dismissed heir relationship and said that she has a boyfriend.
My boyfriend is his VIP guests, so we had the chance to take his private jet." she said.
When asked why she addressed Alvin as her love, Meko said: "Because I admire him and he is my idol, it's like I saw a celebrity."
Meko also said that her boyfriend had reminded her to delete the photos. She declined to post her boyfriend's picture and said that it was inconvenient.
Later on Facebook, Meko stressed that she did not know Alvin Chau beforehand. She also said that she had a boyfriend and her post "with my love" was posted by a friend who has her password.
She also apologised for the misunderstanding. When the reporter called Alvin's wife, Heidi, she went silent for a few seconds before replying: "I am outside now. I won't respond."
Mandy's manager also declined to respond.
