Hong Kong actress Carina Lau has dispelled speculations that she and longtime rumoured love rival Maggie Cheung are on bad terms by posting an intimate picture of the two of them on her Weibo account.
The photo, which was taken at the airport in Taipei yesterday, showed the pair smiling happily in their shades with the accompanying caption, “The beautiful years”.
There has been heightened media attention surrounding them and Carina’s husband, actor Tony Leung, as the trio attended the 50th Golden Horse Awards in Taipei last weekend. Maggie has long been rumoured to be the third party in a love triangle with Tony and Carina.
Just one day before the awards ceremony, the Hong Kong actor was reportedly unable to commit his attendance over his unhappiness that the trio’s “relationship” was used to create buzz for the show.
Though Tony eventually turned up with Carina, they did not cross paths with Maggie on the red carpet despite there being just two groups of artistes separating them.
While Carina’s picture seems to have dispelled the longtime rumours, members of the public are now curious as to who took the picture.
From the reflection in Carina’s sunglasses, the person looked like Tony but it was later made known that it was actually her assistant.
