A day after Andy Hui admitted to cheating on Sammi Cheng with Jacqueline Wong, Jacqueline’s actor boyfriend Kenneth Ma has spoken up.
He addressed a group of reporters who bombarded him with questions about the recent scandal. During the interview, he said he is no longer angry, but is instead worried about the people involved. He also said that while Jacqueline wants to speak to the media, the company was afraid she wasn’t emotionally stable yet and might say the wrong thing. He added, “I can only say, she’s still young, and there’s still a long path in front for her. And I hope everyone will give her some space.”
He also told people to not worry about him because he’ll be concentrating on work. When asked to comment about Andy Hui’s statement, he said, “I will not respond to what he has said, because I believe no one in this world has the right to criticise or comment on this incident, except for his wife Sammi Cheng.”
Before he ended the interview, he appealed to the reporters to not approach his family for comments. He said, “My dad and mum don’t belong in the entertainment industry. They’re good people. My mum would be intimidated with so many microphones pointing at her. She might say the wrong things because she might be scared or stressed, so I hope you won’t take my mum’s words and sensationalise it.”

She was spotted kissing Andy Hui in a viral video, and the singer has since held a press conference to apologise. His wife, Sammi Cheng, has reportedly moved out of their house.
Here’s the transcript of the interview with Kenneth Ma.
Actually after I knew about this, I stopped getting angry after a while. I calmed down and started to get worried about the people who got involved in this. I don’t want anyone to get hurt because of this incident.
Maybe the only thing I can say on Jacqueline’s behalf is that she knows she has made a mistake. I also know she wanted very much to respond to this incident but the company is worried about her unstable emotions and that she might say the wrong things. That is why there wasn’t an arrangement for her to talk to the media. I know she just made a statement on her social media, and she has said it all there.
I can only say, she’s still young, and she has a long way to go. And I hope everyone will give her some space. As for me… you don’t have to worry about me. I’ll still be concentrating on my work, I’ll continue to film. In fact, I’m in the midst of working now, and I don’t want to affect the progress of the filming.
As for Andy Hui, he has already responded, and I will not comment on what he said, because I believe no one in this world has the right to criticise or comment on this incident, except for his wife, Sammi Cheng. So I hope this matter will resolve ASAP and the case will be closed.
Lastly, I wish to say… I hope that when you’re interviewing my family, you’ll be more lenient with your questioning. With your excellent skills in questioning, you can get people to give you the quotes you want. My dad and mum don’t belong in the entertainment industry. They’re good people. My mum would be intimidated with so many microphones pointing at her. She might say the wrong things because she might be scared or stressed, so I hope you won’t take my mum’s words and sensationalise it and I won’ t respond to what she said. Please don’t scare my family. They’re clueless and not used to all the attention. That’s all I have to say.
I’ll be very focus on my own work in the days to come. Thanks for your concern and please, please don’t make this matter even bigger and because more people will get hurt. I believe there’s already a lot of people who are hurt because of this. I really hope this will be settled ASAP. That’s it. Thank you, everyone. I don’t have anything else to say. Thank you for your concern.
