Laurinda Ho on her relationship with Kai Ko: 'He and I are not that close'

Reportedly, Kai broke with his long time girlfriend last month

Macau casino tycoon Stanley Ho's daughter Laurinda Ho has denied rumours of romantic involvement with Taiwanese actor Kai Ko. The two were seen cozying up at a karoke lounge last week.

Refuting the reports swirling around, Laurinda stated that both of them are good friends, and went for a casual outing with friends last Sunday.

"He and I are not that close. We've known each other for about half a year, we met in Taiwan when we went out with a large group of friends, but there were no private dates, " she affirmed.

Responding to reports of her wrapping arms around Kai's shoulder, Laurinda added: "A group of us went out to drink and sing karaoke, maybe I had a bit too much and he was being a gentleman by supporting me."

"We're regular friends and we weren't being too intimate, those were normal social interactions so please don't read too much into it, " Laurinda explained.

Meanwhile, commenting on the same incident, Taiwanese actor-singer Kai ko also denied they had a date. I've honestly not been on an exclusive date with Laurinda, and though we've known each other for about half a year, we've only been in contact for about two or three months," Kai told Toggle.

Reportedly, Kai, who has been dating Taiwanese actress Tia Li for the last two years, opted out of the relationship last month.
