Leon Lai and Maggie Cheung caught in twilight romance?
Hong Kong stars Leon Lai and Maggie Cheung were recently spotted going on dates in both Hong Kong and China. Forty-six-year-old Leon, who divorced from actress Gaile Lok in October, met Maggie, who has separated from her architect boyfriend, at a charity event.
Although Maggie has expressed a keen interest in music in recent years, she is currently playing “for fun” and has no real plans on releasing an album.
It has been said that Leon used music as an excuse to ask the 48-year-old out on several occasions to discuss album plans. The two are reportedly getting along very well.
Sources revealed that the singer-actor aims to fulfill Maggie’s dream by offering personal singing lessons, finding professional studios for song recording, and even offering to put the songs up on his own music company A-Music’s website for download.
Leon apparently won Maggie over after he specially travelled to Shanghai while the actress was working in the Chinese city.
The pair was first romantically linked after working together on the classic movie Comrades: Almost A Love Story in 1996, but both of them denied the rumours at the time and subsequently found their respective ex-partners.
