Eddie Kwan has dismissed speculations that he was unhappy that his daughter did not win the Miss Hong Kong 2021 pageant.
As reported on Mingpao, the actor, whose daughter Fabienne was among the finalists at the said pageant recently, sparked such speculation after it was alleged that he left the scene immediately after the winners were announced and Fabienne only ended up in the top five.
Speaking to the media about his departure, Eddie stated that he was just relieved that Fabienne was able to complete in the pageant.
“She has worked hard for more than two months, so we have arranged a four-person hotel staycation to entertain her,” he said.
Fabienne also echoed a similar response about Eddie leaving the event early, saying that her father would never be disappointed in her performance.
“Everybody needed to leave anyway. He was just returning home to prepare the celebration for me,” she said.
Fabienne also complimented the winner Sabrina Mendes, and expressed hope to be given the opportunity to join showbiz in the future.
