Hong Kong actor Louis Koo (古天乐) has had a rather clean love life. Most know him for his lack of scandals, his good works and of course, his long-lasting career. However, recently, a Hong Kong entertainment reporter claimed Louis got married, had a 10-year-old son and got divorced. Needless to say, netizens are in an uproar.
So, who is the mysterious ex-wife? The reporter alleged that it was former Miss Hong Kong 1994 favourite, TVB actress Natalie Wong (黄纪莹). The claim was heavily substantiated by a few photos of the actress at a gathering last month (October). Natalie was seen with a child and many claimed they looked close.
On 9th October, Natalie attended a gathering with her friends from the entertainment industry. It was the first in a long time since fans had seen the 46-year-old actress. After all, she had left the entertainment sector to become a beauty entrepreneur many years ago. Since then, she has kept her personal life private and out of the spotlight. The gathering delighted many netizens, but what caught their eye was the presence of a young boy in the photos.
Fans claimed the child looked comfortable in Natalie’s arms and said it indicated a close relationship. However, many were surprised as, to their knowledge, Natalie was still single and had yet to marry anyone. Her last known relationship was with Louis, whom she had broken up with many years ago. Yet, the latest claim from the entertainment reporter has cast doubt on their knowledge.
It is reported that Natalie was the only girlfriend Louis ever admitted to. After winning Miss Photogenic in the Miss Hong Kong 1994 semifinals, Natalie joined TVB as one of their actresses. The duo met when they were filming the 1994 drama “Happy Harmony (餐餐有宋家)” and fell in love. While they were dating, Natalie impressed fans with her devotion to Louis. When her then-boyfriend was involved in a controversy, Natalie stayed loyal by his side. It is said that she even gave up her career for him.
Unfortunately, their relationship did not last. Seven years later, the couple broke up in 2001. Apparently, it was due to differences in their personality. Louis has been reluctant to speak at length on the topic. Additionally, he refused to answer then if he would be assisting Natalie financially. However, he did admit he was emotionally uncertain about their relationship.
The 51-year-old is still single and unmarried, similar to Natalie. Louis was rumoured to be interested in Jessica Hsuan (宣萱) a few years ago, but both denied it. Although the two are no longer together, there has not been anyone new in their lives.
Some doubt the reporter’s claims that Louis and Natalie married, had a 10-year-old son and got divorced 8 months ago. After all, Louis is now old enough that he does not need to hide his marriage. However, neither party has spoken up to clarify the rumours.
