|Chan & ex|
TVB actor Joel Chan was exposed divorcing his wife for a new girl. Yesterday he confirmed the divorce and admitted he was married to former girlfriend, 47-year-old Ponny Yeung, 3 years ago.
"First of all, no other parties are involved," he stressed. "I don't want my marriage to fail, but if feelings are gone, then it's gone."
He expressed he doesn't know who exposed this news to the media and now just want to say something about it; however, he doesn't believe his career would be affected.
"It's our personal matter. It's in the news just because I'm a public figure."
The 34-year-old dated his fashion designer ex for 10 years. They met at friends party and began dating despite of their big age difference.
The "A Pillowcase of Mysteries II" star is recently rumored dating Florinda Ho, daughter of Macau's "King of Gambling" Stanley Ho. It's said he gets richer for dating Ho; however, the two denied related reports.
Chan started off his career in the showbiz at age 17 as a singer. He joined TVB in 1995, but it wasn't until in recent years he gets more important roles such as Tso Lun in "E.U." (2009) and Mario in "OL Supreme" (2010). He was nominated "Most Improved Actor" in the 2010 TVB Anniversary Awards.
