Cantopop star Joey Yung (容祖儿) hid away in her home for two days and broke down in tears after “close” friend, lesbian entertainer Denise Ho (何韵诗), was asked about her sexuality.
When quizzed whether Joey is bisexual, Denise replied, “It’s hard to answer,” which predictably created quite a buzz in the media.
Denise and Joey have been romantically linked for almost five years, but gradually grew distant in June this year when Joey announced her relationship with fellow singer-actor Wilfred Lau (刘浩龙).
The 35-year-old Denise came out of the closet after years of dodging the question about her sexual orientation at the Dare To Love LGBT Pride parade in Hong Kong last Saturday.
Now the media has turned its focus on Joey, who has always insisted she and Denise are ” just good friends”.
