Eason Chan "threatens" to stop singing when his daughter was being followed by the paparazzi lately!
Cantopop singer Eason Chan
has declared that he wants to "stop singing", but it was not due to the score of rumours surrounding him and Kay Tse. He was extremely furious and upset that his young daughter, Constance, has been hounded and disturbed by the paparazzi. "Are they going to make me stop working (as a singer)?"
During an interview, the father could hardly suppress his anger about his daughter being followed and her personal safety. He admitted that he even fell ill because of how angry he felt.
Asked if he will start engaging bodyguards to protect his daughter, he snapped, "Is this a good solution? Am I very rich to do so?" He also mentioned that his wife Hilary Tsui
is also worried about their daughter and got only more agitated when reporters probed him whether he will arrange for her daughter to move somewhere else as a temporary measure. "Why do I have to give in [to the paparazzi]? What kind of society is this?"
The rumours plaguing him and Kay Tse
haven't let down, either. Present together at two events within the same day, both of them deliberately avoided any eye contact whatsoever, although at a canvassing award ceremony in the evening, Kay was spotted smiling at Eason occasionally through the night and voted for him. Eason, on the other hand, did not cast any vote or looked at Kay even when she was attired in a sexy dress.
Eason, who received the most votes, was then later shoved to Kay's side during a group photo-taking.
He said, "I've already avoided [Kay Tse]. But whether I avoid her or not, the paparazzi will still write the same thing. They are making news out of nothing, what is there to be scared of? I've already said it many times, only if the rumours are true, then will they affect my image. I'm not afraid of people speculating the results for the award ceremony at the end of the year, because that means friendly competition is present."
He added that he would rather have rumours focus on him than have his daughter followed closely by the press. "Do they want to make me quit my job? Just like the Four-Heavenly Kings and other seniors [who stopped singing all together], I will really choose to stop working!"
