For dedicated fans, your favourite celebrities becoming romantically linked might seem like the best thing that could ever happen; you get to witness your idols in love and see their relationship blossom along with their careers.

But no matter how smooth things seem to be going, sometimes there comes a point when the rose-coloured glasses come off. The sparks just aren’t there any more, things get awkward and eventually the relationship comes to an end.

Here’s a look at the beloved Hong Kong celebrity couples who called it quits and left their fans devastated in the wake of their separations.

Hong Kong stars Nicholas Tse and Cecilia Cheung started publicly dating in 2002, getting married after four years. Tse announced that the couple eloped in the Philippines on a private island and only “had time to invite about 10 friends”, reports Today Online.

In 2008, Cheung was one of the celebrities who got caught up in the infamous Edison Chen photo scandal. (For those not in the know, Chen’s private photos of himself with various women – including famous local actresses – were stolen and posted online, causing a furore.) Despite the media frenzy, Tse stood by Cheung and supported her.

During their five year marriage, Cheung criticised Tse for being an “irresponsible and absent father” for their two sons, Lucas and Quintus, reports Jayne Stars. After their split in 2011, Tse has been spotted with former flame Faye Wong – who he dated throughout the late 90s and early 2000s – on several occasions. Meanwhile, Cheung had a third baby boy, but the father remains unknown to the public.

One of TVB’s iconic couples, Myolie Wu Hang-yee and Bosco Wong Chung-chak met on the sets of Triumph in the Skies. When they played a couple in Wars of In-laws, many viewers believed that they were also dating in real life. After keeping the relationship under wraps, Wu finally announced the news after winning the best actress award for her performance in Curse of the Royal Harem in 2011.

There were rumours that Wong cheated on Wu during the eight-year relationship, and the couple eventually broke up in 2012. Despite Wong being emotional about the split in a radio interview, Next Magazine reported that Wong was “only acting to keep his faithful image”, according to Jayne Stars.

In 2019, Wong was caught in a cheating scandal along with Canto-pop star Andy Hui Chi-on, who married fellow singer Sammi Cheng in 2013. Leaked footage revealed the pair getting intimate in the back seat of a taxi, reports 8 Days. While Cheng was able to forgive her husband, Ma revealed in an interview that he broke up with Wong in 2019. However, Wong emphasised that they have remained friends.

Ma is no stranger to dating his TVB co-stars. He previously dated actress Nancy Wu. Now, he’s currently dating TVB actress Roxanne Tong and there are rumours that wedding bells might be ringing for them soon …

While Tang and Fong kept their relationship hidden initially, they were frequently seen travelling together, such as when they were spotted at the W Hotel in The Maldives, according to Dramasian. Fans rejoiced when they announced they were a couple in 2010 and sparked wedding rumours.

However, in 2016, Fong and Tang announced their break up through their management company, putting an end to their decade-long relationship. According to Tang, she and Fong drifted apart naturally, adding that they separated because they “understand each other too well,” reports Her World.

Canto-pop stars Miriam Yeung and Ronald Cheng were briefly involved with each other in 1999. When the pair first met on show Sunday New Zone that was hosted by Yeung, Cheng was a budding new star who fell in love with Yeung at first sight, reports Minnews.

Doing everything he could to get his feelings across, Cheng ultimately dedicated his hit song February 3 to Yeung, named after her birthday.

The couple eventually broke up after rumours of Cheng attempting to pursue other stars emerged. Yeung even had her former lover blacklisted from her wedding to Real Ting in 2010, reports Jayne Stars. But according to Yahoo!, in later interviews Yeung denied that Cheng cheated on her.

Like the saying goes, time heals all wounds, which was definitely the case for Cheng and Yeung. For his Play It Again tour in 2017, Cheng invited Yeung as a special guest for his concert at the Hong Kong Coliseum. While the pair sang a few songs together, fans were enamoured to see the ex-couple smiling and hugging each other.
