Rumours of actor-director Stephen Chow, 59, dating 17-year-old eliminated Miss Hong Kong contestant Ukei Cheung started circulating in August 2021 after they were spotted boarding the same yacht for an outing at sea.

The actor’s assistant denied the relationship saying the two “hardly know each other”.

On Sept 2, Hong Kong media reported that Chow had issued a lawyer’s letter to Ukei stating that all photos showing her on a boat must be removed from her social media.

Apparently prior to the wakesurfing outing, the extremely private star had requested to Ukei and two other female friends that photography or videography of any kind on the boat was not allowed.

However, it was discovered that there were a number of selfies of the teen at sea on Instagram.

The photos reportedly led Chow to suspect that “someone had violated the confidentiality agreement” about not taking any photos, and furthermore he’s concerned that “someone is using the opportunity to self-promote”.

Hence, the lawyer’s letter.

It’s unsure if Ukei had removed the said photos from Instagram as there are still photos of her posing on a boat on her account.

However, one article reported that if she doesn’t delete them as requested, Chow threatens to sue the teen and claim all legal fees and expenses from her.

Now, what most netizens are curious about is, what kind of outing had it been in the first place for Chow to make a no-photo agreement.
