It was reported last week that Joel Chan (陳山聰) had departed to London, England to mend his two-year relationship with Florinda Ho (何超雲). The couple has indirectly announced through their Weibos earlier this month that they have broken up, and Florinda implied in her post that their separation was because of money.
Joel and Florinda’s romance had been troublesome from the start. Florinda is the daughter of casino tycoon Stanley Ho (何鴻燊), and although Joel himself came from a well-off family, he had given up his career at TVB in order to make a living out of being the boyfriend of Florinda. The paparazzi laughed at Joel for exchanging his life for money.
