Koni Lui (呂慧儀) filed for divorce with Dickson Wong (黃文迪) in 2018 and announced the divorce news on 9th March 2019. She emphasised it did not involve any third party but Kelly Fu (傅嘉莉) who was pointed to be the third party previously left a long message on Instagram on 10th March 2019. As Koni and Dickson uploaded photo of holding hands together at the time, she was suspected to seduce her friend’s husband due to applying black colour nail polish: “Please understand my feelings. We are friends and work in this line, and should understand the importance of the reputation to an artiste. Why do they make a fake photo in order to increase their popularity? They smear me and it is shameless. Lastly as their friend before, it is a pity that they have broken up and please stop forwarding their divorce news to me.”
Here is Kelly’s original message:
“A few years ago, there were many fake news when working in my old modelling company and I ignored it, in order not to blow the matter up.
Many friends have been forwarding the divorce news between Koni and Dickson for the past 2 days. I feel furious upon looking at the photos again and decide to stop being considerate and clarify by myself!
That person is definitely not me when Dickson uploaded that photo of the black fingernails and holding hands together. As a model at the point, we always eat and chat together with the managers and other models. I even helped Koni and Dickson’s wedding and we are considered good friends.
After shooting Triumph in the Skies II (衝上雲霄2) drama and attending many events, I love to wear different outfits and match with appropriate nail colours. Hence, I love to apply black nail colour with black outfits in certain activities.
Before the news was released one day ago, the reporters already contacted me to reply their calls and I called my manager immediately after Dickson shared the photo not long after. The opposite party recognised the hand belonged to Koni and it was obvious both held hands together in their black vehicle. Why did they do that and implicate me? What makes the reporters believe that person is me? It became a headline on the following day and nobody tried to clarify for me. The public accused me of seducing my good friend’s husband and please try to understand my position.
We are friends and work in this line, and should understand the importance of the reputation to an artiste. Why do they make a fake photo in order to increase their popularity? They smear me and it is shameless. Lastly as their friend before, it is a pity that they have broken up and please stop forwarding their divorce news to me. To the media, please let me off.
I believe I need to work hard in order to succeed and will cherish the opportunity. It is unnecessary to make use of your friend and rely on this method. It is a meaningless news.”
However, many netizens discovered Koni did clarify for Kelly at the time: “She is a good girl and please do not be mistaken. A reputation is very important to a girl.” Thus, some suspected Kelly was trying to take advantage from this news: “Oh please! She is already divorced and you are trying to take advantage from her. You are also a woman and why are you rubbing salt in the wound upon reading the news?” In addition, Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) was called a “busybody” after leaving a message that truth will speak for itself on Kelly’s Instagram account.
In the same afternoon, Kelly shared photo of herself working and posted a message after forwarding the message from Instagram to Facebook: “Why do I join showbiz? I can answer immediately because of my deep passion in acting. I may not be a successful actress but will give my full efforts and work extremely hard.”
