Cecilia Cheung Pak-Chi (born 24 May 1980) is a Hong Kong actress and cantopop singer. She is the ex-wife of Nicholas Tse, thus being the former daughter-in-law of Patrick Tse and Deborah Lee Po-Lai. She and Nicholas have two sons, Lucas and Quintus Tse. She is considered a “Sing girl”—an actress who first received media attention through starring alongside Stephen Chow, and later went on to her own successful career. Cheung was involved in the 2008 Edison Chen photo scandal.
Cheung was born in Man Wah Sun Chuen, Jordan, Hong Kong to a Chinese father and a half Chinese-half British mother. Her parents divorced when she was nine years old. She was sent to Melbourne, Australia to live with her aunt at the age of fourteen and then attended Camberwell Girls Grammar School. She has an elder half-sister, two younger brothers and a younger half-brother from her father’s side.
