Hong Kong actor Lee Lung Kei, 74, has denied rumors suggesting turmoil in his relationship with 37-year-old fiancée Chris Wong.

Speculations were rife after Wong removed all her Instagram photos, including those with Lee, on Jan. 22. In a Ming Pao interview on the same day, Lee clarified that Wong's decision to delete the Instagram posts was to minimize public scrutiny.

The couple recently became the focus of media attention following accusations against Wong. A YouTuber has recently accused Wong of fabricating her academic credentials, acquiring paintings from Taobao and misrepresenting them as her own work, and engaging in improper behavior with a 60-year-old man in the U.S. in exchange for $30,000.

Wong resumed her Instagram activity on Jan. 23, posting several messages in response to the accusations. Later that afternoon, she shared a photo of a legal firm, indicating her intention to handle the matter legally, as reported by the Straits Times.

Lee met Wong at the age of 66.

The couple initially intended to marry by the end of 2023, but they deferred their wedding plans due to the unfortunate passing of Wong's father last year.

As a renowned actor, works throughout Lee’s prolific career include "The Condor Heroes," "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer," "Journey to the West," and "Forensic Heroes." He married his first wife in the 1970s and had three children with her, all of whom are older than Wong.
