19 May – Florinda Ho Chiu Wan the heiress to the king of gambling, Stanley Ho, is supposedly on a long holiday with her new rumoured boyfriend, Hong Kong TVB actor Joel Chan Shan-Chung, according to reports by Jayne Stars website.
22 year-old Florida Ho, one of the 17 children of the popular casino tycoon, has been constantly updating photos of a mysterious seaside location and praised the beautiful scenery as the Hong Kong media rampantly speculates that Joel Chan is accompanying her.
Florinda's rumoured boyfriend, Joel Chan, 35, who made headlines when news of him ditching his wife for Florinda Ho came out last week, apparently took leave from TVB due to 'family reasons'.
His role in the TVB series "Return to the Three Kingdoms" was shortly reassigned to actor Pierre Ngo Ka-nin.
Joel's manager and TVB executive, Virginia Lok, confirmed that Joel was still on leave.
Virginia was reported as saying, "He took three weeks of leave, which is still in effect. As a result, no work has been assigned to him yet."
"We will wait for him to come back and understand the situation further prior to any work arrangements." She added.
