Cantopop singer Aaron Kwok has publicly spoken up about Hong Kong socialite Abby Choi's gruesome murder days after his wife, Moka Fang, did so on social media.

During a media conference for his latest movie Cyber Heist, Kwok, 57, revealed that he was still in disbelief and saddened by Choi's death.

"In regards to (Choi's murder), it's a very shocking and heartbreaking incident. My wife and I were friends of the other party.

"What my wife is going through right now is a normal reaction (one has after losing someone close). I believe that she needs some time (for herself) at the moment, and I don't want to talk about it too much," he said.

Although the Heavenly King claimed that he brought his wife for the film's screening to put her mind at ease, media outlets present that day reported seeing no signs of Fang. It is speculated that she took a private passage to the cinema to avoid the press.

Choi's grisly murder first came to light on Feb 24 after police discovered her dismembered limbs in a refrigerator in a village house in Tai Po, a suburb in Hong Kong. Her head was found two days later, together with other body parts, in a soup pot.

According to Superintendent Alan Chung, the 28-year-old was butchered over a financial dispute involving millions of Hong Kong dollars with her ex-husband, Alex Kwong, and his family.

Six arrests have been made in connection with the late socialite's murder as of Thursday (March 2).

The fifth suspect, believed to be the mistress of Kwong's father, was arrested on Feb 26 for allegedly renting out the unit where Choi's body parts were found. She was released on bail Tuesday (Feb 28), with an order to report to police at the end of March.

On Thursday, authorities apprehended an employee at a yacht rental company under suspicion of helping Kwong escape by speedboat on Feb 25.
