The marriage of actor Leon Lai and model Gaile Lok was reportedly a rocky one right from the start. Rumours of a growing rift between the pair have been circulating since they married four years ago, with the model reportedly making plans to move to America with her dog, Tiger.
To add to the growing speculation that all is not well in the house of Lai, Gaile confirmed that Leon had resigned from his director position in their company at a press conference on Wednesday.
She explained, “The company was mine from the start. I approached Leon for help back then since it was my first time trying out a business. I think it is a good thing for me to manage it myself after his resignation.”
When questioned, the model also denied that her husband had given her an expensive yacht as a gift. Gaile also refused to comment on the state of their marriage.
On rumours that she was preparing to take her dog to the US, she said, “I won’t be going to the US now. I will be around Hong Kong and Asia for this year.”
Gaile had opened restaurants and bars back in 2004. She also recently opened another restaurant outlet without Leon’s participation.
