Love woes for G.E.M.?

Hong Kong singer G.E.M. whose real name is Gloria Tang during a performing.

HONG KONG - Hong Kong singer G.E.M. may be enjoying newfound fame on Chinese talent show I Am A Singer 2, but are romantic troubles dogging her?

Last Friday, she responded to rumours that she had split up with Taiwanese crooner Yoga Lin after a Weibo post that set tongues wagging. In it, she hinted at "not forgiving" someone who has "repeatedly made the same mistake".

In Hong Kong for a performance, she said she had been too sleepy and emotional that morning when she wrote the post, and people should not jump to conclusions.

But asked if Lin had been supportive of her in her run on the show, she replied, "What does this have to do with him?".

The singer, whose real name is Gloria Tang, also reiterated that theirs is a "harmonious relationship as is existing between people", adding, "Don't talk about him. Ask him to join I Am A Singer 2 first!."

It did not help that Lin, 26, suddenly cancelled a promotion planned for this month in Hong Kong.

He and G.E.M., 22, came out as a couple last August at Taiwan's Golden Melody Awards.
