Actress Tavia Yeung is enraged with a recent tabloid report of her ‘immoral conduct’ in a car with actor Him Law.
A press conference was held by the two celebrities in order to clarify the car incident and explained the actual incident that happened the night photos of her head on his lap were taken by the paparazzi.
The actress stated, “I specifically requested Him to drive me home before the dinner, knowing that I will not be able to drive myself when I drink.”
The actress stated that Him Law told her as she walked out the restaurant that he suspected some paparazzi were waiting for her, so she took a taxi with Meini Cheung and stopped at Cheung’s place before boarding Him Law’s car.
The actress stated that she has already vomited in the taxi and did not wish to be photographed in a drunken state, so she put her head on his lap to avoid from being photographed, explaining why her lips were photographed wet.
She continued, “When the car drove at my apartment building, Him patted me and said that there are paparazzi at my place and since the word paparazzi is a sensitive word to an artiste, my first reaction is to cover my face and wear my cap.”
Tavia Yeung stated that she is also considering taking legal action against the publication of such outrageous report of her alleged behaviour, not without explaining that her relationship with Him Law is still new and will inform the public if they are advancing to the next stage.
On 19 September, the tabloid published shocking photos of Tavia Yeung’s face resting on Him Law’s lap for the whole 40-minute car ride and alleged that the actress were ashamed when she was photographed, wearing a cap and covering her face with her hands. The tabloid also amplified the controversy by reporting that Tavia’s lips were wet, hinting of lewd behaviour.
The incident happened after Tavia Yeung’s dinner with her classmates from TVB’s acting class on 18 September.
