Carina Lau gets acquainted Edison Chen

23 Aug – Carina Lau recently posted a photo of her and Edison Chen on the micro-blogging site Weibo. The photo was allegedly taken when they saw each other at the launch of a club in Shanghai, China on 20 August, according to a report on Asia One website.

The actress also had kind words for Edison and encouraged him to stay strong in his faith. She wrote on the blog, "You are a great person. Life is always tough. You got to have faith in yourself."

The tweet was shared more than 3,000 times, with Netizens leaving over 2,000 comments.

Hong Kong singer/actress Cecilia Cheung, who was involved in a sex photo scandal with Edison last May had apparently forgiven him, took a picture with him, which eventually led to her divorce to Nicholas Tse.

Netizens pointed out that being "too close" to the controversial Chen had dire consequences, and reminded Lau of what happened to Cecilia Cheung.

Fans of Tony Leung also expressed concern that the incident would affect his marriage to Carina. The posting came days after media speculation that the couple was having relationship difficulties.
