Veteran Hong Kong actor Tony Leung has denied rumors that he is having an affair with Falling Into Your Smile star Cheng Xiao. The rumors, which have been circulating online for weeks, claim that Leung and Cheng have been in a relationship since last year after allegedly being seen shopping together. To make matters worse, it is reported that the 25-year-old actress gave birth to their lovechild!
In a statement released on his social media account on August 24, the 61-year-old actor said that the rumors with a certain female star are false and had a “serious impact” on his family and friends. He said that he has always had a good marriage with his wife and he intends to take legal action against those who continue to spread rumors. Over a week earlier, Cheng Xiao’s agency had already refuted the same rumor and called it “outrageously fake!!”
The Hidden Blade actor has been married to actress Carina Lau for 35 years and they do not have any children. They first met in 1989 and dated for a long time before officially tying the knot in 2008. With a relationship this long, the couple is no stranger to marital gossip over the years. Some Netizens just laughed saying there’s no need to even issue a denial because they didn’t believe it in the first place.
