Everyone has a few secrets they don’t want revealed. When it comes to relationships, most people would like to steer clear of old flames, unless it ended on a healthy note.
Recently, Hong Kong singer Karene Mak (麥貝夷) blasted her ex in an Instagram story. She claimed he had multiple sexual partners. Her shocking reveal made the public suspect that TVB artist William Zhai (翟威廉) is the object of her complaint.
“I only learned today that the number of your sexual partners is amazing,” the singer wrote. “It turns out that the love and care (you showed) were (performances and you made me look like a fool).” The singer did not mention any names, but did state that it was her ex’s birthday. This put Zhai on the radar as many suspected the two had dated before and it was coincidently his birthday as well.
Zhai was quick to deny all allegations and stated he did not know who Mak was talking about. Zhai’s last known relationship was with Hong Kong actress Toby Chan. Since then, the actor has not revealed any new relationships. It isn’t because there aren’t any potential partners, he admitted. When asked about his sexual partners, Zhai disclosed he had seen several Korean and Japanese girls. He made it clear however, that he did not do one-night stands.
The actor later changed his story, saying if Mak was alluding to him, he was willing to apologise. He also added that he never lied. “Initially, I was annoyed,” Zhai said. “I am 36-years-old and I can determine my own lifestyle. I want you all to know that I am not Karene Mak’s boyfriend and have never dated (her).”
When Mak heard about the apology from the media, she was surprised. “I’ve said what I wanted to say on Instagram,” the singer said. “I’m also no longer responding to topics related to my private life, thank you,” she added.
Netizens sent Mak messages to cheer her up after seeing her devastating message. She thanked everyone who was concerned and said she needed time to settle herself.
“Know that you are not alone,” Mak encouraged netizens who shared her pain. “You will soon be better.” Her experience has certainly left her older and wiser.
