Hong Kong actor Lee Lung Kei has vowed to stand by his fiancee Chris Wong after she was sentenced to 25 months in jail by the Shatin Magistrates' Court on Wednesday (June 19).

Wong, whose real name is Wang Qingxia, was found guilty of five charges – including two counts of breaching her conditions of stay, one of using fake documents, another of making false statements to obtain an entry permit and one of making a false declaration to immigration officers.

In an interview with Hong Kong media, Lee said that the length of Wong’s jail term was beyond his expectations.

The former TVB star tearfully added that he will continue to honour his commitment to marry Wong, 36, upon her release from prison.

“I will certainly wait for her. I have told her through my lawyer that I will definitely wait for her,” the 73-year-old said.

During the proceedings, Wong admitted to forging three graduation certificates from a US aviation academy while attempting to apply for a migration scheme and seek employment in Hong Kong.

The Chinese national said she had not “thought thoroughly” when using the counterfeit documents to apply for the scheme in 2019.

According to South China Morning Post, the court was informed that Wong was never accepted into the scheme as she had failed to provide supporting documents for her supposed qualifications.

Lee was said to be in tears during the hearing, exclaiming loudly on three occasions.

When asked by reporters outside the courtroom if he had any concerns with Wong’s family, Lee replied: “We’ll see when the time comes. I need to think things through first.”

As for the possibility of an appeal, the actor said he will leave the matter to his lawyer.

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.
