Rumors: Benny Chan and Charmaine preparing marriage?


Source: Headline Daily

Benny Chan earn money while Charmaine Sheh bought apartment.

Recent news said that TVB actress Charmaine Sheh is saving money to get married. There's also news that she has become a target of wealthy businessmen; who tried to lure her using a HKD2.8 million Ferrari. However, Charmaine was not swayed and the reason is because her heart is with Benny Chan. Benny Chan has also regarded Charmaine as his potential life partner and gave all his savings to her for buying house and investment, preparing to get married in next two years.

Over the past few years, Benny concentrated filming in Mainland China and with the fee of HKD60,000 per episode; he is already one of the popular actor in Mainland. Benny divulged to his close friend that he gave all his hard earn money to Charmaine for buying apartment. It has been reported that Benny has earned more than HKD3 million in Mainland China, and he have transfered them into Charmaine's account.

In 2004, Charmaine was seen holding hands with Benny at Sham Wan Tsuen to buy apartment. During the process, Charmaine was very relaxed and bought a two room apartment (655 square feet) worth HKD4.02 million. The property was bought under her name.

It's a known fact that Charmaine like to purchase properties as investment; with preference in ocean view apartment. Together with her existing apartment in North Point and another in Sham Wan Tsuen (500 square feet), both properties have estimated value of more than HKD10 million. However, Charmaine really wished to purchase a double story lot.

Receiving diamond ring
Before this, Charmaine has expressed her wish of getting married at 27 years old. However, she is already 30 years old and realized that she cannot plan much about getting married and having kids. Charmaine also expressed that she does not want to give up her career opportunities yet. However, she wants to be a full time housewife after getting married. Earlier, Charmaine denied that the huge diamond ring she received in the past was from Benny.

The reporter tried asking Benny and Charmaine about their marriage plan. Charmaine, who is busy filming [Pearl of Orient], only smiled and didn't comment. As for Benny, he hesitated for 3 seconds and replied: "Wait until I save enough money and an apartment to collect rental, so don't need to worry much in the future."

Open secret engagement
Benny Chan also expressed that he prefers apartments around the area of Repulse Bay and South Bay, mainly because they have excellent ocean view. Therefore, his preference closely matched Charmaine's.

Charmaine and Benny started to have rumors since 2002. Even though they strongly denied it, they still go out together in public. Tabloids have even took pictures of Charmaine staying overnight at Benny's apartment. In 2004, there are rumors that they have secretly engaged and even owned joint properties.

Sehseh: Sigh~ What can I comment on this news? By the way, it was barely few days ago when Charmaine said Benny is not her boyfriend, and now Benny is 'divulging' to his 'close friend'? What kind of 'close friend' is that? I admit don't like Benny very much, but if this is true and Charmaine is happy with it, I will still continue to support her. By the way, HK property are so damn expensive. HKD4 million for a tiny apartment? Okay, maybe a luxury apartment, but still... very crampy. No wonder Charmaine want a double storey lot.

Like I said many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many many times...

they're dating one another.

Like Chilam married Anita already because no parents want their child to be a bastard.

Sehseh what would you do if she retires after marriage?

to be honest, i dislike benny a lot as well, he is always the one drops a bomb here and there, like this one here. i will be quite sad to know that they are really together as Charmaine always denied their relationship very flatly. to know that she is lying all this while would be a great disappointment. anyway, i wish Charmaine all the best in finding her Mr. Right soon.

Sure they dated before. But due to their schedules (he's always filiming in the mainland, she's always filming tvb series) that they probably put their relationship on hold or really did break up. It's likely that after she retires, which won't be for a while, there's a chance she'll end up settled down with him, possibly.

I highly doubt the article about him giving her ALL OF HIS MONEY is true. I mean, she won't accept a 2 million dollar ferrari, but she'll take Benny's money instead? Doubt it.

I believe her when she says she doesn't believe in obtaining things without work, that she likes to depend on herself and yes, at this time she does not have a "boyfriend".

I don't understand why chinese tabloids could get away with so many rumors about celebrities. Supposedly quoting friends, or getting it from some source and just saying whatever they want.

I'll spent my days watching her old series, of course :)

Same sentiments here. Maybe THAT is why Charmaine never said he is her bf, if this is true.

I do believe they have an on and off relationship due to their job commitment and distance. However, Charmaine is those romantic types (as she has always stated in interviews) while Benny is known for smooth talking. Do the math.
