Ryan Tang denies his mum is dead, claims she’s run away

TAIWANESE actor Ryan Tang has maintained his stance that his mother has not died despite a body being found at her home in New Taipei City last month.

Kwong Wah Yit Poh reported that he had not responded to a June 8 deadline for the identification of the remains, which had been kept in a funeral parlour.

Tang, 46, told local media that the body, which was discovered on June 3, was not that of his mother.

According to him, his 73-year-old mother had merely run away from home.

The Taipei Performing Artists Union said its offer to help Tang had been rejected.

It said that Tang’s rental agreement had expired recently and that he had found a new house in Tamsui district.

“He said he feared that his mother would not be able to find him if she comes back,” the union said.

Tang’s friends said the June 8 deadline was only a reminder issued by local police, and was not the date of cremation.

> China Press reported that tickets for Hong Kong superstar Andy Lau’s “Today ... Is The Day” concert in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur, had been snapped up in just two hours.

The concert organisers opened online ticket sales at noon on July 7 and limited buyers to only four tickets per transaction.

By 2.30pm that day, Star Planet said in a Facebook post: “Tickets for all four nights of the concert tour in Kuala Lumpur are officially sold out. Thank you all for your incredible support!”

Many of his fans in China said they had hoped to secure some tickets after failing to do so for Lau’s shows in China.

He is slated to perform at Axiata Arena on Oct 24, 25, 26 and 27.
