Showbiz boss Albert Yeung dishes the dirt on celebrity scandals

Albert Yeung, the founder and chairman of Hong Kong-based entertainment company Emperor Entertainment Group (EEG), recently revealed shocking showbiz insights -- including actress Carina Lau's nude photo scandal, Jackie Chan's extramarital affair with Elaine Ng and Nicholas Tse's divorce with Cecilia Cheung - in a magazine interview.

Ten years ago, Albert owned the now-defunct tabloid Eastweek Magazine, which had published nude photos of actress Carina Lau, supposedly taken during the time she was kidnapped and tortured.
The businessman was later forced to make a public apology and close the magazine.

"I didn't know the photos were published. I felt wronged; as a boss, how was I to know what [photos] was going to be used on the magazine's cover?" Albert said.

He expressed that the magazine's editor had obtained the go-ahead from their legal consultants before deciding to publish the photos. In Albert's opinion, the incident was "merely morally wrong", and added that he is still friends with Carina. Albert claimed that Carina did not blame him for the incident.
