Last year after Him Law broke off with Theresa Fu, it was already rumored that he often served as Tavia Yeung's driver and strongly pursued her while shooting The Hippocratic Crush. Then the two were spotted BBQing together and on dates, although their relationship surfaced, they refused to make it public. A few days ago, Tavia was spotted sleeping on Him's thigh while he was driving her home. Even when reporters were madly taking pictures, Tavia was still unwilling to lift her head up or show her face. Because the incident damages their image, the next day, Tavia and Him quickly held a press conference in Tseung Kwan O to explain.
[Article goes on recapping the press conference and Tavia's explanation...]
It appeared Tavia had tears forming in her eye, she admitted she did cried earlier that day, but she knew crying won't solve anything. This has been her most negative news since her debut. She didn't want her family and friends to worry about her, so she decided to come forward. She said: "Artists are humans too. I understand the basic principle, I won't do something that I know is unlawful!"
Him and Tavia's relationship officially surfaces after their one statement, "still getting to know each other" at the press conference. However, close friends know they have long gone beyond the 'getting to know each other' stage. Him was asked what he likes about Tavia? He said: "She is very family-oriented and responsible. She is persistent towards her work." Him said he feels very comfortable with Tavia, and they just naturally got together. Although Tavia is 5 years older, to Him, the 'sister-brother relationship' is not an issue at all. "Love is not about the age gap, most important is being able to communicate and having common future goals and direction."
When speaking of his break up with Theresa Fu and then dating Tavia, both relationships had been on the entertainment new headlines, does he believe he has to reflect on his actions? "Dating is personal. I'm a normal person and never thought it would get so much media attention and reaction. I also cannot just explain it with one or two words...but I believe, as a public figure, must watch your actions and what you say."
Him has been photographed several times driving Tavia around, it was rumored he spends the night at her house too. He said: "I do frequently go over to her house to have dinner and soup. I met her mother before, but we aren't cohabiting." As for Tavia, she quickly denied: "The truth is, I'm cohabiting with my mom."
Earlier it was rumored, several months ago, the couple were already talking about marriage, but Tavia said: "No, if there is an opportunity we'll let you all know!" Him also denied, but he once said he is a 'big man', when he does get marry in the future, he won't allow his girlfriend to work. Also, it would be best to live with his parents. If it really doesn't work out like that, he has to at least live nearby, convenient for him to look after his parents.
Also, Chris Lai and Tavia's elder sister Griselda Yeung attended TVB sitcom Come Home Love Mid-Autumn Festival event yesterday. In regards to ex-rumored girlfriend Tavia's 'car sex' incident with Him Law, Chris deeply believed they won't act that way. He said: "I've known Tavia for many years, she never had good alcohol tolerance. Once she gets drunk, she sleeps and goes unconscious. In the past, I drove her home before too (Did Tavia sleep on your thigh too?) No. She said she trust Him Law the most, of course she'll lay one someone she trusts the most, and not some taxi driver."
Griselda supported her sister to take legal action on any news that are not true. She said: "I believe in Tavia's personality. At most, she'll just sleep on someone's thigh, but definitely won't do what the news said. That is not what a normal person does anyway. I trust my family and that won't be wrong."
