Patrick Tse, 86, Seen Out On A Date With A 30-Year-Old… Turns Out, It’s Just His Impersonator
A Chinese man has been dressing up as the actor to gain views and to confuse the internet.
One thing that always gets people talking: May-December relationships.
Hong Kong silver screen idol Patrick Tse famously dated Shanghai native, Coco, who is 49 years his junior. At that time, Patrick said the relationship would be his last. They split up in 2017, with many believing that Patrick would stay single from then on.
Recently, pictures of Patrick out on a date with a considerably younger lady went viral online. There were also claims that he is now dating a “30-plus-year-old hot girl”.
But are the rumours to be believed?
Turns out, the man in the pictures is a Chinese man known for imitating Patrick’s look and style on Xiao Hong Shu.
Besides posting pictures of himself in Patrick's signature suit, sunglasses and ponytail get-up, the impersonator often shares clips of himself on dates with different attractive ladies.
He basically disguises himself as the actor to gain views on his page, and to confuse the internet.
Though he has successfully achieved his goal, the impersonator was criticised for exploiting Patrick to get views.
In his youth, Patrick was one of Asian cinema's biggest hearthrobs and had a very active love life. In the late '70s, he was married to Taiwanese screen goddess Zhen Zhen. Their marriage, which lasted just two years, shocked everyone at that time as Zhen Zhen was at the peak of her career.
