Chinese celebrities Nicky Wu and Liu Shi Shi, who turned from reel lovers in drama Scarlet Heart to a real couple last November, have been very much in love ever since they went public with their relationship and were even said to have registered for marriage last month.
Recently, there have been rumours that Shi Shi’s Taiwanese co-actor from Chinese movie Five Minutes to Tomorrow, Joseph Chang, has come between the couple. A photo of Joseph putting his arms around her shoulders tightly has been spreading online and Nicky reportedly flared up.
To clear the air, Joseph clarified through his manager that it is impossible for him and Shi Shi, whom he considers a partner at work, to go a step further to become lovers as the two are not close in private at all.
Nicky also declared through a Weibo post on Saturday (Nov 8) that he and his girlfriend are still together.
“Rumours are really rife these days. I’m sorry for bothering people who sincerely care. For those gossip-mongers who got their way, take it that I’m entertaining you, but please stop. We (Shi Shi and I) are doing well together, thanks everyone for the concern.”
