Jimmy Wong and Rosamund Kwan have announced their separation after being together for 3 years. They were rumoured to have broken up since June when Rosamund was seen with another man in Shanghai. It was believed that Rosamund chose to break the news now because she is not in HK and didn’t want to be hounded by the paparazzi about her failed romance.

The last time when they appeared as a couple was during the Gucci fashion show. However, at that time, Jimmy had moved out of their love nest. They weren’t seen together when Rosamund celebrated her birthday last month. Both of them attributed their break up to the fact that the love just fizzled out.

Hacken was puzzled about recent rumours of him making umpteen phone calls to GiGi Lai to persuade the latter to star in his latest MV. He told reporters that it isn't his call to select or choose MV leads, the company decided it and that he is just complying.

Acting on a tip-off from property market watchers, the media understands that Louis Koo had just bought a bigger landed property at Ho Man Tim. According to sources, the new dwelling is a whopping 4300 sq ft with 5 bedrooms, 3 living rooms, and a sprawling garden and it is 3 storeys high. This new house is estimated to be worth around HKD$70 million.

When quizzed, Louis was candid about his latest property investment, saying it is a gift for his own birthday (Louis' birthday is on 21 Oct) this year and a reward for toiling. He also told the press that he is selling his current pad to finance his new home and he has to take on more jobs in order to pay the loans acquired to buy this new home. He will still be living with his parents.
