It has always been known to fans that Godfrey Gao (高以翔) has a girlfriend named Bella Su Xiang Han. So it’s understandable that the spotlight is on her, after the actor’s sudden death.
However, Bella Su has been keeping relatively quiet on her social media over the whole ordeal. Though, it was reported that she and several others, were in China to bring the “Shanghai Fortress” actor’s body back to Taiwan.
This silence did not last long, as she eventually got back to her Instagram account to update her biography. In the new description it reads, “Whatever we are… You and I will always collide.” This, of course, was her way of expressing her grievances over the passing, with them having a relationship in the past.
Others that have also express their sadness, include the Louis Vuitton model’s best friend, James Mao. It was Mao that reportedly introduced Su to the Taiwanese actor, which lead to them dating each other afterwards. In a series of photos on his Instagram, the basketball player let loose on his thoughts about losing his best friend, all of which you can find below:

I don’t really know where to begin. I’ve been trying to gather my thoughts for the past two days, but anytime I try to write anything I break down in tears. I wake up sobbing, I’m devastated. A post is not gonna do justice to express the brotherhood, the bond that we made. When I first met you 15 years ago, we both just moved back. I knew from that day forward we would be good friends, but I never expected you to become my family. I always wanted to be like you. When you wore baggy jeans, I wanted you to take me to buy the same pair. When you listened to Trey Songz and Bobby V who I never heard of, I asked you to make me a mixtape too. When you drove a Nissan Cefiro, I got one soon after that. You were the most genuine person I knew, even when you talked to strangers and they would just be shocked you would talk to them and be so down to earth. I could tell you anything and be straightforward about it without your judgement. When you first started your career, I was able to take care of you for a few months, and ever since then you’ve been taking care of me. Tomorrow’s my big day and you’re not here. I don’t know how this pain is gonna stop, realizing I’m not gonna see you again. You just told me a few days ago about a big dinner that was supposed to happen tonight and I was so happy for you. Thank you for loving Tiffany like your sister and me as your brother. I have a ton of stories and pics that I’ll keep as a memory of you. I’ve heard more and more stories from people these two days about your kindness to them and I’m not surprised. You’ll always have a deep place in my heart, and you’re truly irreplaceable. I’ll miss you forever and I love you bro. #GodfreyGao
“The Jade Pendant” star was reported to have suffered a heart attack during the filming of “Chase Me” (追我吧), after working non-stop for 17 hours. This lead to massive criticism being thrown at the popular Chinese reality show, questioning the show’s staff competency and safety around the set.
Footage of some of Gao’s final moments in the show have also leaked online, showing the actor being completely exhausted and unsteady in his steps. This should have been an indication that something was off, but was ultimately failed to be noticed by the staffs.

Rest in peace Godfrey Gao, you will be missed.
