18 Jul – Vanness Wu and the daughter of a rich Singaporean, Arissa Cheo, first started dating last April, however rumours of their break up in September which were due to Vanness' religious beliefs that required him to abstain from "pre-marital sex", seems to now be proved otherwise, following reports from Xin MSN website.
On 13 July, Vanness and Arissa were spotted holding hands and taking a stroll, before returning to Vanness' home. This fueled speculations that the couple had reconciled.
At around 10pm the same day, director Doze Niu was filming an outdoor scene for his new movie "Love", which attracted a huge crowd. Amongst the onlookers who were there to catch a glimpse of Shu Qi and Ethan Ruan in action were Vanness and Arissa. However, the pair did not stay for long.
It is said that although the couple seemed to maintain their distance in public, whenever they reached a back alley, Arissa would immediately press herself up against the singer.
Vanness even helped Arissa with her handbag and led her across the street. The pair did not stop talking throughout their half-hour walk, before entering Vanness' residence through the back door to avoid being seen.
Vanness' manager refused to comment on his relationship.
