In the days following Elaine Yiu’s (姚子羚) leaked pictures scandal, the focus has now shifted to the relationship between Raymond Young (楊偉文) and Sarika Choy (蔡宛珊). It was previously revealed by Sarika Choy that she and Raymond Young had bought a property unit in Causeway Bay together when they were still married. It’s reported the home was sold for 8.8 million HKD in 2018 and rumored Raymond Young has been paying spousal support to Sarika Choy with his share of the profits from the sold property. In the same year, Sarika Choy bought a property unit in Happy Valley for 12 million HKD, while Raymond Young is temporarily renting a place.
Because there are so many rumors circulating, Sarika Choy decided to address them today in a lengthy and heart to heart Instagram post. She starts off expressing gratitude to those who have been by her side, supporting her, but emphasizes she needs to clarify a report about “spousal support.”
Sarika Choy says, “When I was 16, I already started doing part time work and entered the industry as a model, all the while studying to improve myself. It wasn’t until 2007 where I met Raymond, who was working the floor at Dragon-I at the time, and started dating. We both worked hard. Three years later, we chipped in equally to buy the property in Causeway Bay as our marriage nest. We got married in 2011 and was happily enjoying a beautiful lifestyle. From the start, it has always been half and half. Later on, because our lifestyles and values started to differ, along with other reasons, I struck up the courage in 2017 and suggested to separate.
The decision to separate was the most difficult and toughest one in my life. These past two years was really tough for me. I am thankful for my family and friends for staying by my side and supporting me through the hard times. After separating, I moved back home to live with my family. I am really grateful for my family for understanding and also sorry for making them worry.
I didn’t want to continue affecting my family’s lifestyle. So in 2018, I decided to sell our joint name property and split the profits. I used my share of the money and my own savings to buy my current home in Happy Valley.
As for spousal support, Raymond and I both agreed even symbolically, I will not receive one dollar. Because I believe I can support myself with my own abilities to spend the life I want. At the same time, I also don’t want to bring him any burden.”
Sarika Choy continues on that her relationship with Raymond Young is over, but even though she is currently single, she has never given up on finding love. She ends the post thanking her family and friends again, but in a very gracious move, she sends her blessings to Elaine Yiu and everyone else that was impacted by this scandal.
Elaine Yiu has also iterated she is confident there wouldn’t be more erotic videos released saying, “We didn’t film AV (adult video), definitely didn’t!” She also says she is a victim in some circumstances and is adamant that she didn’t take any nude pictures with Raymond Young.
