CELEBRITY couple Ronald Cheng and Charlene Choi, who announced their separation earlier, are actually getting a divorce.
Hong Kong's Apple Daily in its latest edition published a copy of the stars' marriage certificate, confirming speculation that they were married.
According to the records, Cheng, 38, and Choi, 27, had registered for marriage in Los Angeles, United States, on Jan 31, 2006.
A marriage certificate was then issued under the names Ronald Chung Kei Cheng and Charlene Tsoek-Jin Choi.
The duo, however, have yet to respond to the news report.
It was reported that the couple had planned to announce the news later at the "right timing" but sadly, the first time that they openly talked about their relationship was about their separation.
Last week, the couple - who started dating in 2004 after starring as lovers in the film Hidden Heroes -?had officially announced their separation at different events.
Rumours of Cheng's affairs with other women and a bikini Choi reportedly found in her husband's room were said to have sparked off their split.
Cheng and Choi were among the Hong Kong celebrities who were found to have secretly married.
The others include Cantopop Heavenly Kings Andy Lau and Leon Lai.
