Back in 2018, Hongkong actress Elena Kong came under massive fire after the media found out that she had secretly gotten married and divorced. Almost three years since the big reveal, she has decided to clear the air.
Elena and her ex-husband Ng Kwan Cheung, who is actress Sandra Ng’s brother, registered their marriage in Seattle back in 2006, but Elena claimed that she had “forgotten” that she was married.
The 49-year-old also clarified that she and Kwan Cheung had been separated for “some time” before the reports were published in 2018, but that she couldn’t bring herself about it to the press for the longest time because of her panic disorder.
“I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to handle the intense pressure and scrutiny that would come with it,” she confessed. “I didn’t know if I would be able to deal with all the questions and probing that would come with the [divorce] announcement (…) which was why I kept it a secret for so long.”
