Leon Lai heartbroken after Shu Qi split

Singer Leon Lai took the rare step of talking publicly about former love Shu Qi on a Chinese television show. "Everyone suffers pain. If there isn't pain, we won't be together," he said recently on Dragon TV's The Jinxing Show, admitting to being heartbroken after ending his seven-year romance with Shu Qi in 2004.

But he would not say why they split up, pointing out that the actress, 40, had last year married film-maker Stephen Fung, 42, Apple Daily reported.

But Lai, 50, said he was still open to love, adding that he would give his all in a new romance, despite his romantic setbacks.
