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!”

Typhoon Soulik proved to be of no threat to JJ Lin’s fans as they showed up at his concert at the Taipei Arena last weekend undeterred by warnings of heavy rain and flooding. Although the singer previously announced that tickets would be fully refunded due to the weather condition, there was hardly any empty seats spotted at the venue.

“I’m son of the sun. Everything will be fine!” he hollered, while expressing his gratitude towards the 10,000-strong crowd.

Kicking off the very first show of his Time Line World Tour, JJ descended on an extended stage with a customised “gear wheel piano” reportedly worth NT$2 million (approximately S$84,000).

Be it stage design or costumes, the singer spared no expense from his black LED diamante encrusted armour to the “man-made rain” segment during the show.

JJ also paid tribute to his late idol Michael Jackson by performing the song “Billie Jean” in the “rain”, which amounted to an estimated NT$3.5 million (S$140,000) in production fees. Despite being soaked from head to toe, he continued performing two more songs before he wowed the crowd by removing his jacket and showing off his biceps.

The audience, who were seated at the second level, got the biggest bang for their buck with upclose interactions with the singer. One such lucky fan even joined JJ on his elevated swing which transported them around the arena.

“Are there any couples that have dated for 10 years who are here tonight? I do have a 10-year lover – all of you,” said the honey-tongued singer.

JJ performed a total of 33 songs on Saturday night at his concert which saw the attendance of celebrity friends such as Jimmy Lin, Jam Hsiao, Gillian Chung, Mark Chao and Ricky Hsiao.

The 51-year-old had kept the existence of her 29-year-old daughter a secret up till her death

 

Shocker 1: Taiwanese singer Long Qianyu has a 29-year-old daughter.

Shocker 2: The daughter has died of drug overdose on July 30.

Fans were shocked when Qianyu admitted yesterday that Tsao Chunling, who was an outstanding student of the drama department in National Taiwan University of Arts, is her daughter with Taiwanese host Denny Tsao.

Explaining why she had kept her daughter’s existence a secret, she shared that the fact that she had a daughter would not have been condoned at the time, adding, “The misunderstandings and heartaches (that I endured) will never be understood by others – I can only suffer alone.” The singer, who was single at the time, has never married.

Qianyu, whose father died last year, has been having trouble dealing with the double blow of having to reveal her secret child and to cope with her death. She has declared that she will temporarily stop all work, and her brother expressed, “It’s unavoidable that she feels sad, but she will face it bravely.”

Qianyu has also revealed that she will not disclose further news of the circumstances surrounding her daughter’s death as she had expressed in her will that she would prefer for everything to be dealt with in a low-key manner. The singer shared that she was worried that it would become a source of negative inspiration for teenagers facing difficulties in life.

The coroner’s preliminary reports have suggested that Chunling had committed suicide, but officials have commented that they will have to retrieve her past medical history to make an accurate diagnosis.
