26 May – Ever since the wealthy businessman Lau Ding Sing had revealed that TVB actor Him Law was among the names in a list of male models who have posed for him, Law has decided to come clean about his acquaintance with Lau.
According to Jayne Stars, Law admitted that he knew the businessman, who is currently in a court hearing for sexual coercion after police had seized 16,000 photos of half and fully nude men consisting of actors, models and police officers. Not only that, the businessman was also currently being sued in a notorious case involving indecent assault and intimidation of 3 male actors and 1 fitness trainer.
Law's name had been linked with the shady exploits of Lau after the latter confirmed that the list, which included Him Law, Bryon Pang, Benjamin Yuen, and Stanley Cheung, was accurate. However, the actor's agency, Filmko, issued a press statement to deny that Law and Lau knew each other.
It was when Mr. Lau revealed that he had photographed Him Law on 3 occasions that Him Law decided to come forward and tell his side of the story.
"I met Mr. Lau through a friend outside the entertainment industry. I denied knowing him earlier because the police requested confidentiality in the case. Too many things have happened recently; I believe it is time to explain!" Law said.
Law also admitted that he had assisted the police investigation in the case but continues to insist that he had not taken off his pants for the 62-year-old self-professed gay.
"I have taken many topless photos, for advertisements and promotional events. But I never took fully nude photos!" he said.
