Andy Hui apologises for cheating on Sammi Cheng with TVB starlet
'I am a damaged person', Hui said at a press conference.
Is Sammi Cheng and Andy Hui’s marriage on the rocks? According to a video posted by Apple Daily on Tuesday (Apr 16), the Hong Kong actor was seen behaving intimately at the back of a taxi with TVB starlet Jacqueline Wong, who is dating TVB actor Kenneth Ma.
The nearly 16-minute dashcam clip showed Hui, 51, and Wong, 30, getting into the taxi with a male friend. The male acquaintance wanted to send Wong home but she and Hui insisted on dropping him off first. After the friend alighted, the duo started getting intimate, holding hands and kissing each other.
Hui apologised for his actions at a press conference held on the same day, saying that he was a “damaged person”. “I want to apologise to Sammi, her family, and those who love her.” The singer-actor said that he had a lot to drink at a friend’s birthday but admitted that “it’s no excuse for my behaviour”.
In an Instagram post after the press conference, Hui wrote: "I have done something unforgivable, I dare not ask for forgiveness. I am very sorry for completely disappointing my family, friends and fans. I'm willing to bear responsibility and all consequences of my actions. As a husband, I want to apologise to Sammi. It is a complete mistake, I feel ashamed and pained by what I did."
Cheng and Hui have been together for 27 years and married for five years. In her last interview with CNA Lifestyle, the Cantopop diva revealed that she suffered from depression while filming Everlasting Regret.

According to an insider tip that Apple Daily received, Wong met Hui through his crew member. Not long after, she started attending the same gym that he did. The starlet even went to Macau last year when Hui held a concert there, according to Apple Daily. The actress has posted pictures of Hui on her Instagram before, albeit group shots such as these.
In addition, talks of Wong tying the knot with Ma have also been floating since 2017.
