For those who don’t know or were too young to remember, legendary Hongkong filmmaker Stephen Chow and '90s screen goddess Athena Chu once dated for several years after meeting and working together on the set of 1992’s Fight Back to School II. However, Hongkong singer-actress Karen Mok, another one of Stephen’s old flames, was rumoured to come between them, and their three-year relationship came to an end.
Recently, a veteran Hongkong reporter came forward to shed some light on the truth behind Stephen and Athena’s split, claiming that Karen actually had nothing to do with it.
