Gaile Lai (simplified Chinese: 乐基儿; traditional Chinese: 樂基兒; pinyin: Lè Jīér), born Lai Ga Yi (simplified Chinese: 黎嘉仪; traditional Chinese: 黎嘉儀; pinyin: Lí Jiāyí) on 22 August 1980,[1] better known as Gaile Lok, is a fashion model, magazine cover girl and actress. She was born in Macau to a Chinese father and a Vietnamese mother. Gaile studied in the United States.


Gaile Lok is of Chinese-Vietnamese descent as her mother is Vietnamese, and was born in Macau while growing up in USA. She made her film debut starring in the 2000 romantic film, I Do, and subsequently appeared in another film entitled My Sweetie in 2004.[2] When she made her debut, some Hong Kong entertainment information magazines had compared her likeness to that of Shu Qi, a Taiwanese actress.[citation needed] In 2005, she openly admitted to had performed breast aumentation surgery, but reverted shortly as they take too much load on the back.

Personal life[edit]

As of 2006, Gaile was dating Leon Lai, a Hong Kong actor and singer. With this relationship, she became a target of paparazzi and the media. In 2006, a magazine published an article and intimate photographs of her with Leon Lai at the latter's residence, prompting the Hong Kong Actors Guild to protest "irresponsibility" on the part of the magazine.[3]

In 2009, Lok and Lai were secretly married in Las Vegas at the Wynn Hotel, with his manager and assistant acting as witnesses.[4]

On 3 October 2012 the couple announced the end of their four-year marriage. Their joint statement stated that there were "different philosophies in life" which caused the divorce. Leon Lai's manager stated that there was not a third party that lead the couple to divorce.

Lok married businessman Ian Chu in 2017. Their son, Hunter, was born on 29 April 2019.[5]
