CHINESE actress Zhang Ziyi has reportedly found a new romance after she was seen in Tokyo with a male companion.
The Hong Kong media spotted the 32-year-old actress with a man who resembled TVB actor Louis Yuen, Sin Chew Daily said, adding that the couple spent three days in Tokyo.
It was reported that Zhang and her male companion arrived at a five-star hotel one afternoon and then went on a shopping spree.
The two of them also went for a meal at a posh restaurant where customers are charged at least ¥30,000 (RM1,097) per person. Zhang’s male companion picked up the tab.
However, Zhang blogged on Feb 8 that she is still single. The day of the blog posting coincided with the reports about her date in Tokyo.
Late last year, Zhang’s manager announced that the actress was single, confirming speculation that she had split up with her businessman fiancé Vivi Nevo.
