Hong Kong - After a 20-year romance that was mostly conducted in secret, singer Leo Ku has married his assistant Lorraine Chan.

The two made things official in Las Vegas last Saturday, about a month shy of the star's 42nd birthday, said Apple Daily yesterday. He shared the news on Weibo on Tuesday and released to the media photos of him and his 44-year-old bride bathed in sunlight in the desert of Nevada.

He wrote in his post: "Since my first album in 1994, you have been faithfully taking care of me in my work. However, from now on, let me take care of your future."

Ku is known for Mandarin songs including The Clock That Forgets Time and Street Vendor. When he made his debut as a Cantopop singer, he wore his hair in a bowl cut and looked unremarkable. Chan, who is from a well-off family, spent her own money on his makeover, said Apple Daily.
