G.E.M. (鄧紫棋) and her stylist boyfriend, Mark Ngai (魏俊傑), have been dating for the past three years. Mark Ngai has been in the public eye since their relationship was revealed as he is G.E.M’s stylist and part of her managment team. He was in the news last year when fans claimed their fan club fees were being deposited into Mark Ngai’s private account. G.E.M.’s manager at the time said these allegations were unfounded.
Mark Ngai was in the news again on December 10 when a netizen reported that Mark Ngai was once in prison for assault. This person said on December 31, 2015, Mark Ngai was allegedly involved in a beating with someone at a Causeway Bay bar. He was reportedly charged with two counts of assault and was found guilty in September 2017. Mark Ngai was reportedly sentenced to 3 months and 3 weeks of prison time. The name on the court filings is the same as Mark Ngai’s Chinese name.
This whistleblower claims G.E.M. had helped Mark Ngai update his social media accounts while he was serving his time in prison as if nothing happened. This was to hide the fact that Mark Ngai was in prison. Hong Kong news outlet, hk01.com, reached out to G.E.M.’s camp on this matter, but haven’t received a response. As for Mark Ngai, he said he was “in the middle of a meeting” when the media reached out to him.
