Less than a year after By2’s Yumi and billionaire heir Mario Ho (son of Hong Kong business magnate Stanley Ho) were revealed to be dating, rumours are rife that the couple have met each other’s parents and are planning to tie the knot soon.
Last November, Yumi and Mario were photographed locking arms and hugging in public while shopping in Hong Kong. Blissfully in love, Yumi let on that “happiness gives people an urge to get married” in a social media post.
In April this year, the 23-year-old insinuated on Instagram that she has broken up with her beau. She wrote: “Actually I have always been single. I haven’t met my ideal guy. Even if I did, they are already married. So who wants to be my boyfriend?”
However, Yumi and Mario were recently seen together in Beijing. According to eye-witnesses, Mario stuck by his girlfriend’s side to take care of her as they strolled down the streets holding hands. Some netizens even claimed that the lovebirds have started looking for a marital home.
In response to the reports, By2’s manager confirmed that Yumi is in Beijing, but insisted that the singer and Mario are just “good friends”. When asked on the possibility of a flash marriage for the couple, her manager declined to comment on the artiste’s personal affairs. “Thanks to the netizens for helping us think of talking points,” he laughed.
