Why are Gwei Lun-Mei and Leon Dai hiding their relationship?

The actor is said to be on China’s ‘blacklist’


Celebrity couple Gwei Lun-Mei and Leon Dai has been dating for 14 years, with their relationship going strong despite their 17-year age gap. Earlier this year, the couple was caught up in rumours of a breakup, though neither Lun-Mei nor Leon has stepped out to clarify the rumours.

When Lun-Mei was quizzed about her partner at a event recently, the 34-year-old tried her best to dodge the questions, refusing to give an answer. Her evasive behaviour, coupled with the rumours, caused fans to believe that the duo had officially called it quits.

However, according to reports from the media, the couple has not broken up. Eyewitnesses have vouched that they’ve seen Leon exiting and entering Lun-Mei’s abode, and it is believed that they’re currently co-habiting.

The reason for the couple’s evasiveness, is believed to be due to Leon’s support of the Hong Kong Occupy Central movement, as well as his participation in anti-nuclear protests. 

The 52-year-old’s actions is said to have incurred the wrath of China, who promptly placed his name in their ‘blacklist’. As Leon is worried that his actions will affect Lun-Mei’s career, he decided to stop sharing more about their relationship status to the media, which gave rise to the breakup rumours.
