Hayden Kho Jr. (born May 20, 1980, in Manila, Philippines), is a Chinese Filipino celebrity cosmetic doctor, businessman, actor and model based in Manila, Philippines.

Biography[edit]

At the age of 16, Kho started his career in ramp modeling while pursuing a degree in medical technology. This stint brought him to places like New York City, Singapore, Japan, and Korea. Following the footsteps of his father, Hayden Kho, Sr, he earned his degree in medicine and surgery from the University of Santo Tomas. He completed his internship at the Makati Medical Center where he held the position of President of the Medical Interns. Kho also completed his training in anti-aging medicine through the European Anti-Aging Medicine Society (Paris). In Manila, Kho practiced specific cosmetic dermatology and surgery procedures under the organization of the Belo Medical Group, owned by Vicky Belo.[citation needed]

In 2007, Kho started appearing on Philippine national television as an actor. His career in show business ceased when it was reported that Kho had tried to commit suicide in December 2008. In 2009, sex videos of himself with other local and foreign celebrities were distributed over the internet without his knowledge and consent. Shortly thereafter, Kho was brought to a senate hearing and was tried publicly on national television.[1] This saga lasted for years and resulted to criminal and civil cases filed against Kho by one of the involved parties, Filipina actress Katrina Halili.[2] CNN tagged this controversy as the most controversial sex scandal in Asia.[3] The Philippine Board of Medicine revoked Kho's license to practice medicine and cited unethical behavior as the basis for his expulsion from the medical society.[4] In December of the same year, Kho tried to commit suicide for the second time.[citation needed]

In 2011, Kho launched his own eponymous brand of fragrances called, "HAYDEN".[5] He was tapped as the endorser of the Filipino fashion brand MALDITA MAN [6] and also by the cosmetic giant Ever Bilena, Inc. He also hosted the defunct Filipino showbiz oriented talk show Paparazzi,[7] which was aired on TV5. Kho was also director of the skin care distribution brand ZO Skin Health in the Philippines.[8]

In 2013, Kho met with Christian philosopher and apologist Ravi Zacharias in a serendipitous event hosted by some leaders of the Christ Commission Fellowship (CCF) in Manila and later became a devoted Christian.[9] He is being mentored by Zacharias and by the CCF movement founder, Pastor Peter Tan-Chi.[10]

In 2014, Kho went to the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics at the Oxford University to study Christian apologetics, where he met and was tutored by Christian sociologist and author Os Guinness; scientist, mathematician, and philosopher John Lennox; theologian and author Alister McGrath; and anti-Islam polemicist Jay Smith, among others.[11]

While Kho was studying in University of Oxford, the Professional Regulation Commission reinstated his medical license.[12] The same year, all cases against Kho were dismissed.[13] Kho and Halili reconciled thereafter.[14] With respect to his conversion to Christianity, Kho confirmed that he had been practicing faith-based abstinence.[12] On May 16, 2016, Vicky Belo, with whom he has had an intermittent relationship, gave birth to their daughter, Scarlet Snow, who was conceived through surrogacy.[15]

Kho has resumed his medical practice at the Sexy Solutions clinics. He owns and runs a real estate website called ZoneListing, Inc.[16] He is also invested in various software companies that create apps such as Pocket Market and Paylance.[17]
