Hong Kong actor Lee Lung Kei recently attended an event in Tsim Sha Tsui, where he provided updates on his 36-year-old fiancee Chris Wong.

Wong, whose real name is Wang Qingxia, was arrested earlier in February for allegedly overstaying her residency in Hong Kong.

The Chinese national is currently in custody awaiting trial on seven charges – including overstaying in Hong Kong, making false statements to obtain an entry permit and more.

Her case will be revisited on May 28.

“She’s starting to feel better. I visit her every day. Things are better now. It’s called acceptance,” Lee told HK media.

Lee shared that although his sleep has improved, he still feels an added weight on his chest. The former TVB star previously told an online talk show that he had trouble sleeping following his fiancee's arrest.

“We don’t know what’s going to happen. Of course, I’m doing my best to help her as much as I can. I hope this burden will be lifted soon,” he said.

Lee described the wait for Wong's final verdict to be "painful".

When asked whether he has mentally prepared himself for Wong's judgement, Lee admitted it's a difficult question to answer.

“Everything is uncertain at the moment. Although we will do our best, court matters are unpredictable. I’m also (praying) to the gods for help,” he said.

Lee and Wong's relationship first came to light in 2020 when Hong Kong media reported that Wong, who was carrying Lee's child, suffered a miscarriage.

Despite the significant age difference, the couple has been in a stable relationship for the past years due to shared interests.

Earlier in February, Lee told Hong Kong media that he will continue standing by Wong despite her controversies.

He added then that their marriage vows will remain unchanged.
