Hongkong singer-actor Alan Tam’s love life has been cast into the spotlight once again, after a number of netizens likened it to “a palace drama”.

And while Alan’s love life definitely isn’t as complicated as the late casino king Stanley Ho, who had four wives, it’s admittedly pretty dramatic as well.
