When Hongkong actress Lydia Sum passed away in February 2008 at the age of 62 following a two-year battle with liver cancer, many people were worried about what would happen to the comedian's only child, Joyce Cheng, then 21.
It was later revealed that Lydia had left HK$60mil (S$10.4mil) to Joyce, and reports at that time claimed that the latter would only have access to her inheritance when she's 35.
FYI: Joyce turns 35 next May.
Last week, Joyce addressed those reports, calling them “laughable”.
“They keep changing the date of when I’m supposed to [get my inheritance], but what they say doesn’t affect me (…) I just want to do a good job as a performer. I believe that the friends who truly love me will not dislike me just because of such reports," she said.
