12 Oct – Hong Kong model Gaile Lai has a burn mark on the back of her left hand, raising speculations that she might have hurt herself in a desperate effort to save her failing marriage with Leon Lai, according to a report on the May Daily website.
However, the 31-year-old model is no stranger in the self-harm department. In 2006, she slit her arm after Leon stayed out late when filming in Shanghai and back in 2001, when dating model Perry Chan, she reportedly threatened her lover by using a knife to hurt herself.
A close friend said that when Leon learned she had used a cigarette to burn her hand he threw away her cigarettes and ashtrays.
He also gave her a good telling off and said she was "too immature to be a mom."
Gaile reportedly apologized to Leon with tears streaming down her face.
In order to save his marriage, Leon decided to have a two-week vacation with his wife in Japan after his concerts in December.
