Things aren’t looking good for Nicholas Tse (谢霆锋) and his family.
After learning that the 39-year-old actor hasn’t had contact with his sister Jennifer Tse for over a year, his eldest son revealed that he and his brother have drifted apart from Nicholas.
As you may know, Nicholas and Cecilia Cheung (张柏芝) – who have been divorced for 8 years now – have 2 sons together, Lucas (谢振轩), 12, and Quintus (谢振南), 9. Word on a street has it that Lucas recently gave a statement about their father to the press.
In interview, the young boy said that the brothers rarely get to see Nicholas because of his work commitments and busy schedule. “When I’m sick or my brother has fever, only mom is with us. I don’t regret that mom and dad separated, because he’s not good enough for mom,” Lucas was quoted as saying.
The Hong Kong entertainer’s manager Mani Fok (霍汶希) has since come forth to deny the allegations that made headlines on numerous Chinese publications. The full statement issued by Nicholas via his management company EEG reads:
“Our company recently found a number of media/platforms circulating reports that the eldest son of our artiste, Mr. Nicholas Tse, commented on their relationship. For commercial purposes, deceitful headlines and false reports were used to mislead the public and readers.
“Our company and our artiste (Nicholas) pay great attention to this matter. We hereby solemnly declare: Our artiste has a good relationship with his children and they get along well with each other. These misleading and or false reports are causing harmful, insulting, and inflammatory remarks to grow online. It is affecting the children and causing serious problems. Our artiste reiterates that he will use all methods to protect his children and avoid unnecessary impact on his children. He will not endure any individual, organisation, and or media or platform to use his children to drum up false news. For the sake of the children, we hope the media will stop disrupting their lives with misleading and or false reports. It will not only affect the children but also bring about serious inconvenience.
“These harmful reports have not only misled the public and readers, but they have also caused serious damage and adverse effects on the rights and reputation of our company and our artiste. This has crossed our artiste’s bottom line, caused damage to his positive image, and seriously affected his standing in society. Our company urges the public and readers to recognise the facts and avoid misleading content.
“Our company and our artiste hereby strongly condemn the above misconduct, and urge relevant individuals, organisations, and/or media/platform to immediately stop, or else our company and our artiste will use legal means to pursue the matter.”
Some netizens think that the entertainer is pursuing legal means to salvage his son’s comments about him. Do you think so?
