After the bed photo with her old love, Raymond Young was exposed, Elaine Yiu (姚子羚) was suspected to involve in a relationship consisting of 4 parties. She clarified they begun to date after Raymond and his ex-wife, Sarika Choy (蔡宛珊) were separated for more than a year, while Elaine and Raymond were broken up for some time ago.
Based on the news source, Raymond and Sarika bought a flat in Causeway Bay in their names and he was suspected to sell it away to pay the alimony for his ex-wife. Sarika then purchased another property in Happy Valley in her name and stayed by herself.
In the afternoon on 22nd May 2019, Sarika clarified about the news report: “I did not receive a single penny based on the agreement with Raymond.”
She said: “Firstly, thank you to my family, friends and the company for the concerns and supports. It really means a lot to me but I feel I must clarify upon reading the news related to the alimony.
At 16 years old, I begun to do part-time modelling and upgrading myself at the same time. From 2007, I knew and dated Raymond after joining the firm, Dragon-I and we worked very hard. After 3 years later, we used our own money to buy a flat in Causeway Bay and planned to live over there after getting married.
We had a blissful marriage life after tying the knot in 2011. We paid the expenses equally and finally went for separation in 2017, after discovering the differences in our live perspectives, value and other reasons.
Honestly, it is the hardest decision in my life and very suffering for the past 2 years. I feel grateful to all the supports given and thank you for helping me to overcome the obstacles. After the separation, I moved back to my parent’s house and thank you for everyone’s understanding. Sorry for making them worried about me.
As I no longer wish to affect my family’s daily routine, I decided to sell my flat in Causeway Bay and the money is distributed to both of us equally. Subsequently, I used the money and my savings to buy a property in Happy Valley.
As for the alimony, I will not accept a single penny from Raymond based on the agreement as I believe I have the ability to live my preferred lifestyle and not to give him additional burden as well.
As a single woman, I must admit it is not easy to support myself and pay for the expenses. Despite joining the industry for many years, I am not considered famous and definitely give my full efforts to my job. Thus, I really appreciate to all the opportunities given and thank you to my partners and clients.
This relationship is already over and the past year experiences have made me stronger. My career is my top priority and I believe everything will be better as long as I continue to work hard.
I do not need to rely on anybody and continue to believe in love despite my single status.
Once again, thank you to the supports and encouragements from everybody all along. I also give my blessings to Elaine and the parties involved. Thank you.”
