HONG KONG - Hong Kong star Louis Koo's love life is looking very troubled - and crowded.

A secret romance he had with Taiwan's idol drama queen Joe Chen is in jeopardy after actress Sandra Ng blabbed about matchmaking him with Taiwanese star Michelle Chen, reported Taiwan's Next Magazine.

It claimed that Koo, 42, dated Joe Chen, star of You're My Destiny, for more than a year after being introduced by actress Miriam Yeung.

But last December, Ng went on a talk show with Michelle Chen and blurted: "I've arranged three dates for Michelle and Louis." But she said Koo was nervous and hardly talked during the dates.

That got Joe Chen angry, reported Next, even though Koo told her that he and Michelle were just friends.

Since last month, they have been waging a cold war, though Koo has reportedly sought a friend's help to patch up, saying: "I love her, I love her."

Meanwhile, Taiwanese singer Wallace Huo, 33, has stepped in to revive his old romance with Joe.

They reunited on a TV drama this year and were photographed together in Hong Kong last month. Joe, 33, has also been posting alleged love notes to Huo on Weibo.

To all this, Koo, in Thailand on Wednesday to promote his film Drug War, told Apple Daily: "Won't comment on lies."
