The divorce news between Gillian Chung (鍾欣潼) and Taiwanese doctor, Michael Lai (賴弘國) is exposed on 8th May. Subsequently, there are endless gossips and a big group of media waited outside his clinic at Songshan district in Taipei on 12th May.
Apparently, Michael informed the reporters that he would arrive at 11am but was late for 15 minutes because of the heavy rain. He wore a dark colour suit and appeared with his friend. After waiting for the media to get ready for several minutes, Michael begun his speech: “Sorry for making everybody to wait for me. I understand that many reporters are waiting for me during my break and please stop doing it, in order not to affect my patients.
Secondly, I have nothing to say about my separation with Gillian. I feel extremely upset and please give us some privacy. I respect her and this is my last response.”
When mentioned about finding a new lover before filing for a divorce, Michael emphasised the third point: “It is considered slander when the public accuse me for having an extra-marital affair. My lawyer has issued warning letters and I definitely will not let them off. (Plan to stay single forever?) My career is my top priority. Anyway, I am criticised for 2 to 3 years and it does not bother me now. I respect everyone and will take legal actions to those people who accuse me.”
Finally, he requested for privacy again and interrupted when the reporters asked him about the separation news: “I have nothing to say. Thank you.” Michael then walked into his clinic.”
