4 Oct – After countless of speculations, Leon Lai and Gaile Lok have officially announced the end of their four-year marriage.
Amidst Gaile Lok's recent scandalous photo controversy, the couple released a joint statement, saying; "We, Paciwood Music & Entertainment Limited, on behalf of our artistes, Ms. Gaile Lok and Mr. Leon Lai, wish to announce to the public that although they have spent a lot of beautiful moments together and still care for each other, they have serious differences in their philosophies of life."
"After careful consideration, both parties have decided to officially break up. During this difficult time for the two of them, hopefully the public will give them some personal space, allowing them to quickly adapt to their new lives and remain focused on work."
The statement ended with, "On behalf of Ms. Lok and Mr. Lai, we express our heartfelt thanks to the media for their support and love."
The couple met in 2005 and despite Leon Lai's reserved personality that reportedly clashed with Gaile Lok's wild spirit, they eloped to Vegas for a secret wedding in 2008 – which was only known to the public in 2009. However, rumours of the couple's imminent divorce have been the talk of the Net since July 2011 – with both stars firmly denying any problems, up till now.
Leon Lai's manager denies any third party involvement as the cause of their separation.
