Richard Li and Karmen Kwok’s relationship was exposed when they were spotted traveling in Japan during Valentine’s Day in 2016. It was reported in 2017, Karmen Kwok had bought a luxury property priced around 50,000 HKD per square foot. It was speculated the agent handling the transaction is Richard Li’s associate.

Since then, the couple would frequently attend functions together.
However, there have been rumors circulating that Richard Li and Karmen Kwok have recently split up after 5 years together. When the media reached out to Richard Li’s team, they responded that he’s busy with work and won’t respond to personal matters.
