We scratched our heads in confusion when Myolie Wu rejected the idea of marriage despite her eight-year relationship with fellow TVB actor Bosco Wong during an interview with xinmsn earlier this month when she was in town to promote a TVB drama - but recent shocking news have revealed that TVB's golden couple has called it quits.
A flurry of rumours circulated after the news broke, and both sides have stepped up to shed some light on the matter.
Bosco announced the split in an interview with Eileen Cha, tearfully expressing, "I still want to be with her, but if it's not meant to be, it's not meant to be; if we're not suitable for each other, we're just not suitable for each other."
He shared that the split was an amicable decision made together with no particular reason behind it. The 31-year-old stressed that there was no third party involved, refuting all news reports that his philandering ways affected their relationship.
Explaining that cracks in their relationship started to appear since last year's TVB Awards, he revealed that the two separated a few months back but did not break the news yet as they were considering how to best explain their situation.
When asked if he will try to win Myolie's heart once again, Bosco expressed, "(I) can't force (her), what happens in the future depends on fate."
Myolie, who attended a promotional event for her drama, Ghetto Justice 2, shed tears when discussing the split, emphasizing that their separation was not a spur-of-the-moment decision.
When reporters mentioned Bosco's promise to turn over a new leaf in order to prove his devotion to her, she quickly replied, 'Don't say it that way.' Taking a moment to collect her thoughts, the visibly shaken actress continued, 'We're all mature adults; I hope that we can calmly handle this matter in a mature manner.'
With regards to rumours that a third party led to their split, the 32-year-old tearfully shared, 'Since we've split, I cannot speak for him - I can only speak for myself when I say I did not (have an affair).'
Expressing confusion at Bosco's comments that problems in their relationship had arose since last year's TVB awards, she insisted that it was smooth sailing at the time.
Taking into consideration that the two live in the same apartment building, reports asked if she has since moved away - to which she replied, 'I haven't moved away - we don't live together and have our own homes. At this stage, I don't think it's necessary to make such a clean break.'
Asking for space, Myolie then refused further comment on her personal life.
