An expensive affair
Dr. Yvonne Lui Lai-kwan - fugitive billionaire Joseph Lau’s ex-girlfriend and mother of two children by him - has announced that she has no desire to “initiate court proceedings against Mr. Lau” and prefers to “live her life without the ongoing involvement of lawyers”, according to the South China Morning Post.
The statements came on Monday following a notice of intended marriage displayed at the marriage registration office in Hong Kong last Friday which showed Lau intends to marry long-time partner Chan Hoi-wan, with whom Lau also has two children.
Last week, Mr. Lau announced in a full-page statement published in Hong Kong newspapers that his relationship with Dr. Lui had ended in 2014 plus statements to Apple Daily regarding his fiancée’s position, saying “She is not greedy […] she has been taking good care of me and my children”.
Lau told the publication he had given “billions” to Chan in the case of Lui wanting to take his family members to court after his death.
