Aaron Kwok’s Older Brother Was Shot Dead By Robbers Who Raided Their Family’s Jewellery Store 31 Years Ago
The Heavenly King was reportedly preparing for a concert when he received the news about his brother's tragic death in 1991.
On Monday (Jul 11), many news outlets ran stories about how 56-year-old Heavenly King Aaron Kwok's home in Hongkong's upscale Carrie Garden development had been broken into.
Aaron's manager later revealed that the news was fake and that it was his neighbour's home that had been burgled.
It turns out this wasn’t the first time Aaron's family crossed paths with an unwanted intruder.
In 1990, Aaron’s older brother, Kwok Fukan, took over the Kwok family's jewellery business.
A year later, with the business flourishing, the jewellery store on Hongkong’s Marble Road Market became a target of armed robbers who raided the premises when Fukan was stock-taking.
Fukan reportedly put up a fight and attempted to chase after the robbers and was shot dead outside the Sunbeam Theatre in Hongkong’s North Point district.
According to reports, Aaron was preparing for a concert when the tragedy happened.
Aaron's dad, Kwok Zi, died four years later, reportedly out of grief over his son's death. Aaron's mum was also said to have fallen ill after the mishap.
After losing two of his loved ones in such a short span of time, Aaron then decided to spend more time with his mother and family. He also took on the responsibility of looking after his sister-in-law and two nephews.Photos: chinapress
