Rumour has it that Fiona Sit is in a lesbian relationship with Chet Lam’s sister, Hong Kong singer, Eman Lam.

According to HK Channel, sources claimed that the singer found support from Eman after the continuous tribulations she faced in her life, beginning with her breakup with boyfriend, Jaycee Chan, her parents’ divorce, her father’s illness, as well as her conflict with record label, Warner Music.

An insider alleged that the two of them met through Chet Lam, who was also introduced to her by Joey Yung when they took part in a stage play. However, they only grew closer after Fiona signed on with Paco Wong’s Sun Entertainment and performed together for the 903id club Music Live show at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in May.

A source claimed, “Eman often asked Fiona to rehearse together, and since both of them are women, Fiona dared to show sexier moves. As they always met for rehearsal, both of them became much closer.”

It was alleged that Fiona felt more comfortable with Eman and learned to accept that a man can never be as attentive as a woman. Eman was the only person she agreed on seeing when she was down on her luck.

Although she’d never actually announced her sexual preference in public, Eman is known to have been dating a partner of the same-sex. The singer once said, “I believe everyone has experienced being in love with someone of the same gender, especially women!”

Gloria Estefan will join Oprah Winfrey for an in-depth interview covering the Latin music superstar’s extraordinary career — and the many musical paths she’s helped pave for other stars.

The seven-time Grammy Award winner is the latest musician to join Winfrey on her OWN show “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” following high profile chats with the likes of Justin Bieber, Usher, Rihanna and Fergie.

In the episode that goes to air Aug. 4 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, Estefan explores how she guided the careers of Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony and Shakira, among others. In one stretch, Estefan tells Oprah how she fought label execs to release Shakira’s first English-language album, a record that went on establish the Colombian beauty as a global star.

“They wanted her just to throw a couple of songs in English on a Latin record and I fought hard. I said, ‘Listen. This is her shot. You can’t do it halfway, you know’?” Estefan says. “An American audience is not gonna get a record that’s mostly Spanish because there’s a couple of English cuts on it. They’re gonna want to hear the whole thing. This is gonna work. I fought hard for her. Fought hard. And she sold like 13 million of that album.”

Estefan and Oprah sit down for a Cuban-style lunch at the singer’s home in Vero Beach, Florida, where they chat about Estefan’s upbringing as a Cuban exile, her rise into the mainstream, and that shocking bus crash in the 1990s that almost left her paralyzed.

Latin music’s premier female artist has sold more than 100 million albums. She’s also in charge of a string of enterprises, has a Broadway musical about her life, and a minor stake in the Miami Dolphins NFL team.
