Alice Chan’s doctor boyfriend is called Dr. Aldous Chan (陳國強). He is the same age as Alice Chan and is also said to be a divorcee. He had actually opened a medical beauty center with actor, Ben Wong (黃智賢), and another doctor last June. Alice Chan was also present on the day of the opening. Ben Wong and Alice Chan have been friends for years and he was actually the one who introduced them together. However, he doesn’t dare take credit for their romance. Fellow TVB actress, Elena Kong, also knows Dr. Chan and is her primary care doctor. She says, “He is very thoughtful and patient. He is a very good person. When he’s with Alice, he is very gentle and soft spoken. The both of them are a great match!”
When initially asked about her new romance, Alice Chan told the media, “In the process of getting to know each other. Thanks for your concern.” After the reports came out though, Alice Chan admitted to the new relationship and said, “I received a lot of friends and media members’ blessings. I sincerely think everyone for their concerns about me. Doctor Chan and I did meet each other at an event a few years ago. We only started contacting each other again a few months ago. We really just started and are in the process of getting to know each other. I hope everyone can give us some space. Thank you everyone!”
Alice Chan was married to her ex-husband, James Yen (顏志行) in 2008. He is said to be a Taiwanese businessman who is 3 years younger than her. Ever since getting married, she didn’t appear on the screen until she made her comeback in 2012 and joined TVB. At that time, it was said the two were already living separate lives in different countries. There were many marital discord rumors, but Alice Chan had always denied it. She had even invited him on her cooking show, “Wai Gor’s Wok” (煒哥的味道), debunking the rumors.
However, a few years ago, James Yen was seen being intimate with Taiwanese singer, Sherry Cheng (鄭雙雙), and attending a wedding together in Bali. It was only then that Alice Chan finally admitted they had divorced in 2012. It’s reported she kept it a secret because she had hopes the marriage could be salvaged. She had once said on the show “Wishful Living” (如果這樣生活), “The media has always been very concerned about my love life. I never talked about it because I want to maintain this relationship. I feel there is a chance to save it, that’s why I didn’t say anything. Truthfully, I didn’t want to separate. This wasn’t my choice. He actually mentioned divorce. He feels that he has to spend a lot of time at work and in the end, like he owed me. Since he felt he couldn’t sacrifice for this relationship, he felt it was time to end this relationship.”
In a separate interview, Alice Chan had revealed she and her husband were living in Thailand after she stopped working. However, her husband was always working and had neglected her. She had even mentioned their sex life was also impacted. Alice Chan said she was very hurt when her ex-husband mentioned divorce. She needed a psychiatrist to help her get through it. Thankfully, with work, family, and friends, she was able to get out of the darkness.
