Just days after Roy Qiu went through a potential romance with Tia Li (he shot that down as pure media conjured nonsense) and a break up with never-confirmed girlfriend Tang Yan, he showed up with his co-stars Li Sheng and Myolie Wu at a press conference for their upcoming modern C-drama Wine Beauty (official English title). After Tang Tang’s assistant posted that sensationalized smackdown of Roy on her weibo, he actually answered on his weibo that night and said that he thinks of his love life not as a performance and apologized for not being able to go public with it. He also wrote that he has never done something in love that he needs to apologize for but he’ll accept whatever censure comes his way. At today’s drama press conference, the reporters spent most of their time asking Roy about this recent juicy dust up and he candidly revealed for the first time that he did date Tang Yan but they have recently broken up. He also stated again that the rumors of him and Tia were all false, they are just friends. When asked about the assistant’s post, Roy said that what happened between him and Tang Tang was mutually agreed upon with the same understanding, so he doesn’t understand how it ended up becoming public this way. When asked about the assertion that he lied that he hadn’t seen her in 7 months when the assistant said Tang Tang flew to Taiwan last October, Roy said that his statement earlier was that he didn’t see her for quite some time and it was the reporter who wrote down 7 months since that was how long it had been since they were seen in public together. Roy wishes that even as a celebrity he can maintain privacy in his love life. When asked about the future, Roy hopes that he and Tang Yan can take a step back and be friends. I’m sure Roy doesn’t think he did anything wrong, but with a string of disgruntled and heartbroken ex-girlfriends behind him, he’s probably as bad a boyfriend as they come. My guess is he kinda loses interest and just disengages from the relationship until the girl has no choice but to give up. I’m known plenty of guys like that, LOL. Also – Roy’s outfit above? – so ridiculous it merits its own sartorial smackdown.
