Back in 2015, rumours of a rift between Jacky Wu and Jay Chou ran rampant after the former was not present at Jay’s wedding.
In recent years, speculation that the mentor-disciple’s relationship had soured continued to hog the headlines despite clarifications from both parties stating that any bad blood between them has long become water under the bridge.
Their point was once again reinforced at Jacky’s concert last weekend. Jay, who was holding a concert on the same day, was unable to attend and instead sent a congratulatory flower stand to his mentor. The card read, “I’ll never forget my roots, and our bond will never change.”
Apart from Jay’s flower stand, congratulatory blooms from Mayday, Jolin Tsai, Jam Hsiao and Show Luo were also spotted, which proved once again that Jacky has many friends in the industry who respect him greatly.
During Jacky’s concert, his son, Rick Wu, made a guest appearance. The 19-year-old, who is currently studying at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, also took the opportunity to perform a few songs, but was met with a lukewarm reception from the audience.
