Carina Lau, 52, and Rosamund Kwan, 55, have yet to bury the hatchet after falling out over Pierre Chen, Rosamund’s billionaire ex-husband, more than a year ago. The two actresses have been good friends for more than 20 years.
At the 2016 Leader of the Year award ceremony held last night, the two actresses appeared at the event one after the other to avoid being photographed together.
During an interview about their acrimonious relationship, Carina denied any knowledge of Rosamund’s attendance at the event.
“[I] didn’t know [we] appeared at the same event,” she replied, when asked if she had seen the latter. “[Things are] not awkward [between us], we’re all adults after all.”
“I hope to let the dust settle,” said Rosamund, echoing Carina’s statement in a separate interview. “We’ll let nature takes its course… I’ve let go [of what happened].”
The two Hong Kong actresses’ relationship soured after Carina went on a hiking trip with Pierre days after Rosamund announced her divorce from him in 2015.
Rosamund was reportedly upset with what Carina did and called her out for being insensitive to other people’s feelings. Carina, on the other hand, clarified that she was not informed beforehand about Rosamund and Pierre’s brief marriage and sudden separation, and maintained that it was “common” for friends to go on hiking trips together.
