Jacky Cheung, 59, is not only the “God of Songs”, he is also the “God of Property”.
Like many of his celeb peers, the Heavenly King is a keen real estate investor. According to Hongkong media, Jacky recently put his luxury duplex in The Somerset in Repulse Bay on the market for HK$430mil (S$74.5mil).
The massive 4,655 sq ft apartment is reportedly made up of two duplex units, which Jacky combined into one.
It is said that Jacky and his wife, former Hongkong actress May Lo, paid a total of HK$46.3mil (S$8.1mil) for the two units in 1993 and 2004.
The couple have been living there with their two daughters, Zoe, 20, and Zie, 15, since the apartment was refurbished.
They recently moved to a new home and are looking to take advantage of the strong property market to sell the apartment. If successful, Jacky will earn a cool eight-fold profit.
