HONG KONG (AP) — Hong Kong celebrity Andy Hui has apologized to his family and friends after reports about his apparent dalliance with an actress appeared in the media.
Hui has been at the top of Hong Kong’s entertainment industry for decades and married Hong Kong pop star Sammi Cheng in 2013.
The 51-year-old apologized for the incident, which was documented in a video published by Hong Kong’s Apple Daily newspaper that purported to show Hui being intimate in a taxi with Hong Kong actress, Jacqueline Wong.
It was not clear how the video made it into the newspaper. Hui says he would be suspending commercial activities while he sought help for his behavior and “find a new start.”
Hong Kong’s media have long had a reputation for tabloid coverage of celebrities.
