Celina Harto (陳楨怡) made her mark on history when she won runner-up in Miss Hong Kong 2020. However, as of late, she has been more infamous thanks to her steadily worsening reputation.
The former Miss Hong Kong participant became known for her messy relationships in January this year. However, it seems things just got messier. Especially since she supposedly cheated on two guys with five others.
Celina’s convoluted relationships came to light in January, thanks to a certain netizen. According to them, Celina had been seeing Hong Kong singer Hinson Chou (周子揚) for a year and a half. However, officially, Celina already had a boyfriend, a non-celeb named Andy. Celina had nuked her relationship with Hinson then, firmly stating that she was dating Andy. This contradicted Hinson’s claim that Celina had broken up with Andy and was serious about him instead.
Unfortunately, the issue had barely died down when Hinson returned to fan the flames. On 14th February, Hinson announced that he had broken up with Celina. In addition to declaring them over, Hinson revealed some shocking news. Apparently, Celina had been seeing five others while two-timing Hinson and Andy. He listed them off as Hong Kong artists Lincoln Hui (許俊豪), Jeremy Wong (黃俊豪) and Niklas Lam (林正峰). Celina was also supposedly involved with two women, a Korean model who did a commercial with her and Hong Kong actress Crystal Fung (馮盈盈)’s assistant.
According to Hinson, Celina had changed once she got involved with these people. She started going out more and would lie about where she was. Celina had supposedly once told Hinson she was going to bed and would turn off her phone. He was rather surprised when photos of her with Lincoln and Jeremy popped up on social media instead. Hinson had warned her to be careful of them, and Celina reassured him that she was merely using them and only loved him.
However, Celina was later seen at another party with Jeremy and the other Miss Hong Kong 2020 winners. “They were playing around and smoking, and someone even saw Jeremy and Celina grinding on each other,” Hinson alleged. “It’s not their first time playing around like that.” Celina had supposedly defended her actions again by claiming she was hoping to get opportunities from them. After all, Lincoln had connections as an actor, while Jeremy and the Korean model could land her job opportunities. Niklas, favoured by TVB executive Catherina Tsang might share some of those favours with her. Crystal Fung’s assistant could also lend her a hand as a photographer.
Celina has since responded to the issue. However, her cryptic apology has only left netizens sure of her guilt. Her apology which she posted on Instagram states, “When I decided to let go of one abnormal relationship, I was prepared to face all of today’s problems.” Celine went on to say that she was also prepared for the consequences of her mistakes. “But now that it has implicated my colleagues, I have to apologise to them,” she wrote. “Because my bad choices have affected them, I’m truly sorry!”
In addition to facing backlash about her multiple relationships, netizens are unhappy with her conduct as a runner-up of Miss Hong Kong. Many felt she was undeserving of the title, especially with her cheating and smoking habits.
Well, the Miss Hong Kong 2020 runner-up certainly has a lot to explain. If not to her fans, then at least to her alleged lovers!
