Tse brushes away talk of marrying Wong

Nicholas Tse, who cooks on on his show, Chef Nic, still believes in fairy-tale romance.

HONG KONG - Nicholas Tse batted away talk that he is to wed lover Faye Wong, as the media asked him if he planned to settle down in Beijing.

There have been rumours that he is to wed the Chinese singer in France after a magazine said actress Vicki Zhao has offered her French vineyard as their wedding venue.

But, on Thursday, he replied unhappily: "I won't talk about silly things."

Tse, 34, was attending an Emperor Group residential property event as the project's spokesman, according to a report on the website of Hong Kong's Takung Pao newspaper.

The media has kept up a constant stream of news about him and Wong after their rekindled romance came to light in September, and one speculated topic has been their possible love nest. Asked if he planned to relocate to Beijing, where she is based, he replied: "It does not matter to me. This thing about home has to do with destiny. When you come across a place you feel dear about, then that will be home."

His reunion with Wong, 45, was revealed after pictures of them kissing inside her Beijing apartment were published. His manager Mani Fok has slammed the media for invading his privacy.

Asked on Thursday if he would be careful in picking apartments, Tse replied: "I have just returned from shooting a commercial in Portugal and London. I sleep more hours on a plane than at home. So I'm not concerned."

The Emperor Group artiste added: "I'm focused only on my work. The company thinks there are three Nicholas Tses. I have work till 2016."
