Leslie Cheung 'had no relationship woes'
HONGKONG -- The former manager of Leslie Cheung has dismissed rumours that the singer-actor took his life because of relationship troubles. Chan Suk Fan, who witnessed his fall last Tuesday, broke her silence and talked to Hongkong's Ming Pao Weekly after reading untrue reports about Cheung's relationship with his boyfriend Daffy Tong.
"The couple had been happily together since 1982", she said, "and Cheung had once told her to take care of Tong on his behalf, should he meet with an accident". She said Cheung had been dogged by bad health in the past year. His voice had turned hoarse from a gastric ailment, causing his recording work to come to a standstill.
Meanwhile, his famous friends mourned his death. Actress Maggie Cheung revealed that she has been eating vegetarian food for the repose of his soul since his sudden demise and Cheung's closest Cantopop rival in the 1980s, Alan Tam held back tears during a tribute televised last Saturday.
