Leo Ku and his assistant Lorraine have been rumored for 17 years, but their hearts were connected keeping their mouth shut all along. The other night at Leo's 39th birthday party, the couple finally stood still to cut the birthday cake and took pictures in public for the first time with nearly 50 artists there to witness the 'Leo-Lor Love'.
The rumors began in 1994 when Lorraine started working with Leo. The attentive and considerate Lorraine successfully captured Leo's heart. Eventually Leo hired her as his personal assistant. In the last several years, Lorraine was willing to be the woman behind Leo, and although the "Leo-Lor Love" is a known secret within the industry, the couple always kept their distance at public events. In 2008 when Leo won JSG's 'Most Popular Male Singer Award', Leo thanked his 'girlfriend' who was sitting in the audience tearing up: "I want to thank my assistant Lorraine." Their relationship was quite obvious.
Yesterday it was Leo's 39th birthday, his boss Albert Yeung (EEG) spent 6 figures to host a birthday party for him and invited Joey Yung, Twins, Sherman Chung, Vincy Chan, Carlos Ng, Gigi Fu, Cally Kwong and many more. EEG's boss Albert Yeung and Executives Mani Fok and Ng Yue all attended to celebrate with him. To avoid the media's attention, Lorraine and Leo purposely walked into the party separately. Leo dropped her off at the backdoor of the hotel to help her avoid the cameras, while he walked through the main door.
At around 12am, the birthday boy Leo started cutting the birthday cake with the other EEG singers and colleagues. Albert and Ng Yue gave birthday kisses and then suddenly called Lorraine over. Lorraine, who had never taken a photo with Leo in public, quickly dodged to one side, but eventually she was pulled out by Albert. The helpless Lorraine was like a little shy girl standing besides Leo as they take their first 'public photo'. When reporters asked Lorraine to give the birthday boy a kiss, Leo was heartbroken to see his 'girlfriend' getting played like that, then he quickly shook his head: "Cut the cake!" Besides him were Joey and Twins, who were screaming and posing with the V hand gestures behind them.
The playful Joey took the cake and smacked it on Leo's face, and to avoid Leo taking revenge on her, she quickly dashed off to hide behind Albert. Joey had always loved to bicker with Leo, yesterday seeing that it was her good friend's birthday, she played a big joke on him and told all the guests at the party to shout Lorraine's name. She laughed: "They are just so matching! (What's your blessings to them?) Long-live together, always of one mind!" Vincy said they matched too: "If they really are dating, I wish them the best. It's rare that colleagues can become a couple too!"
Leo said frankly that his birthday wish is good health. Asked when he's going to marry Lorraine? He stuttered: "I have no marriage plans, if it happens then it happens. I will tell everyone when it happens. (You need the female party ['lui fong'] to urge you before you do it?) He made a gag: "I haven't seen David Lui Fong in a long time." Asked if he'll be getting married after his concert? The naughty Leo pretended to kick reporters.
