The other night at the Taiwan 'Golden Melody Awards', she wins the 'Best Mandarin Female Singer Award' for the second time. On stage, she suddenly announced that she is marrying her first German boyfriend, who she dated when she was 17, at the end of this year. The good news quickly circulated around the industry. In December 2009, [Oriental Daily] spotted Karen and her boyfriend Johannes back together in Central, but at the time Karen insisted that they were just friends. It was said that when Karen was studying in Italy at age 17, she met Johannes there. After dating for a year, they both had to go back to their own countries and ended the relationship. However, yesterday on Weibo, a Netizen exposed that Johannes had three children in his previous marriage. In 2007, a magazine published Karen's personal diary, which mentioned she broke up with her first boyfriend because he was gay.
The other night at the awards ceremony, Karen accepted [Oriental Daily] long distance phone interview and when reporters congratulated her, she happily expressed: "Which one are you congrating me on? (The double happiness!) Thank you! Johannes and I are the same age, he works in the banking industry in Germany! (When did you two get back together?) Two years ago, we have classmate reunions from time to time, so we see each other there. Two months ago, he nervously brought a ring and proposed to me. I felt it was the right time, and tonight since I won this award, I decided to announce too, so everyone can feel high again. haha!" It was said Karen received a gold diamond ring and they are planning to tie the knot in the chapel near the Florence neighborhood, where they used to play often when they were classmates.
After Karen won her award, she did not have time to call her German fiance to tell him the good news yet, but the filial her rushed back to HK at 5pm to celebrate Father's Day with her father. Karen reveals at the airport that she is holding her wedding in October in Italy. Her bridesmaids will be a few good friends from outside the industry. She plans to hire her designer good friend Johanna Ho to design her wedding dress. In HK, she will invite her good friends for dinner as well. As Karen's jobs are lined up to the mountain, she will not stop working and let nature take its course when it comes to having babies.
Asked if Karen minds her fiance already with 3 children? Karen first appeared shocked, but then expressed: "I don't mind. I can save on that too, his oldest daughter is already in college, we are pretty good friends. We can even disorderly wear our clothing, we get along pretty well!" Reporters asked Karen again to confirm if her fiance is gay? She heard the question and laughed out loud: "No such thing, it's a rumor!"
