Last month, comedy legend Stephen Chow, 59, was rumoured to be dating a 17-year-old failed Miss Hong Kong 2021 contestant named Ukei Cheung after they were spotted boarding the same yacht to party and play water sports.
The 42-year age gap between them led the press to term their relationship a “grandfather-granddaughter” one. Unflattering, we know.
Stephen’s assistant quickly came forward to refute the reports, clarifying that “there was a large group of people” on the boat with them that day and that Stephen and Ukei “hardly know each other”.
But it looks like a simple denial wasn’t enough.
