According to an exclusive news source from Apple Daily (蘋果) on 16th April 2019, 51 years old Andy Hui (許志安) and 30 years old (黃心穎) were caught kissing and behaving intimately in the car. On the same night, Andy held a press conference to apologise to his wife, Sammi Cheng (鄭秀文) and announced to stop all his work in the entertainment industry now.
One day later, TVB Executive, Virginia Lok (樂易玲) responded to the media on behalf of Jacqueline: “She knows she made a terrible mistake and feels extremely remorseful. She is full of guilt to the affected ones especially her parent, the company, Kenneth Ma (馬國明) and his family.” In addition, the new drama, The Offliners (堅離地愛堅離地) starring Jacqueline is suspended immediately.
On 17th April 2019, Kenneth returned to TV City to continue the filming for the new series, The Exorcist’s Meter 2.0 (降魔的2.0). Around 4pm in the make-up room, he allowed the reporters to take photos and it was obvious he tried to force a smile. From the look of it, Kenneth had yet to apply any make-up and tried to use his cap to cover his eyes. However, he did not accept any interviews and the security officers escorted him to the changing room thereafter.
At 5.15pm, Kenneth appeared again and confessed his anger changed into worry quickly upon knowing the scandal: “Honestly, I cool down quickly after knowing it and become very calm after that. I feel very worried about affecting and hurting the people surrounding me. I can say something on behalf of Jacqueline and know she is aware of her mistake. Although I hope she will explain to the public personally, but the company is worried about her current condition and she might say something wrong. I know that she posted an apology message on Instagram not long ago. She is still very young and has a long road ahead. I hope everyone will give her some privacy.”
Kenneth also urged the reporters not to disturb his family and pointed nobody had the right to make any comments: “I have nothing to say since Andy has apologised and reckon Sammi is the only one who is qualified to give her remarks. I really hope everyone will forget about it soon.”
Lastly, Kenneth emphasised that everyone should stop blowing the matter up so as not to hurt more people. He told the public not to worry about him and would be focusing on his career. When asked about his relationship status with Jacqueline, Kenneth did not make any response and put his palms together before leaving: “I have nothing to say now and thank you for the concern.”
