Kwong Wah Yit Poh reported that local actress Angelica Lee's father gave his son-in-law Oxide Pang an earful recently.
Pang, an acclaimed director, was recently caught cheating on Lee with Hong Kong model Liddy Li.
Lee's father said he was hurt and had scolded Pang, adding that the latter then apologised to him and Lee.
"I told him that he is nearing 50 and has had two previous 'wrongdoings" and we wouldn't tolerate it a third time. We have forgiven him," he said during an interview with a Hong Kong magazine published by the daily.
Lee's father said Pang had treated them well throughout the years, adding that they would even visit him when he was filming abroad.
On talk that Lee had attempted suicide after learning about the affair, her father said she was just suffering from gastric pains.
