Ensuring paparazzi not a Constance presence
with Vivian Chen
Canto-pop star Eason Chan Yik-shun isn't exactly the low-profile type, with his flamboyant, gender-bending costumes. But the superstar can make an exception for his six-year-old daughter, Constance.
The singer showed up at the Cultural Centre on Saturday to support Constance, who was appearing in Stars of Tomorrow, a performance organised by celebrity ballet instructor Jean Wong Yan-man for students and alumni of her ballet school.
While some well-heeled guests were trying to stand out at the venue, packed with starlets and socialites such as Josie Ho Chiu-yee, Flora Cheong-leen and Janet Ma Sze-wai, Chan wanted to keep his daughter well away from the limelight.
'I don't want to always talk about my daughter in public. I hope you can give the kid some space,' said Chan (pictured second from left, next to wife Hilary Tsui Ho-ying and Cheong).
Chan admitted he had neglected some parental duties just to avoid bringing media attention to his daughter.
'I've wanted to drive her to school sometimes, but I'm afraid the paparazzi will follow us everywhere. I'd be in trouble if I kept a low profile, but I hope the media can leave my daughter alone.'
