Niki Chow Sighs at the Betrayal of Trust in Today’s Society
After intruders forced their way into Niki Chow’s home earlier posing as delivery staff and frightening Niki’s mother, Niki was interviewed on a radio show yesterday and host DJ Jerry Lamb asked her if she had stopped crying yet. She replied: "I did not cry? (Your manager said you were crying a lot?) I was just very angry."
Asked if she has been comforted by rumoured boyfriend Kevin Cheng, Niki said: "He has asked about my mother and made sure she was alright. (Did you make sure you keep your distance when you spoke to avoid the press making up more stories about you?) At the time I did not think about that too much. Not many people knew what was happening, but as I was talking on my phone and frowning a lot, he was stood beside me, so he knew." Niki says that the two people were already taking photographs when they stood at the door and when they failed their mission, they ran away. Her mother bravely ran after them, then she called Niki as she was so scared that she could not breathe. Niki says: "You cannot scare older people like this, she said her chest was very painful and I was worried her heart could not handle it. The worst thing for me was my mother getting frightened like this."
When the two people ran away, they left behind the battery to their mobile phone. Will this be sent for fingerprint scanning? Niki says: "We reserve the right to take whatever legal action is required. It is in the hands of the company now and we will see what we can do, but I don’t want to blow this out of proportion." When Niki found out what had happened, she was busy filming and she says that it affected her mood quite severely: "I really wanted to take time off yesterday, but I did not want my work to be affected by my personal affairs, so I was constantly on the phone and keeping in contact with my mother." Talking of her recent string of negative events, she says: "I don’t know if this incident was related to me because there are so many of us in my family. If it was our friends in the media, then I am very disappointed. If they are thieves or other criminals, then it is even more frightening." Asked if she thinks they are crazy fans, she says: "My fans are very good and will not do this kind of thing." Niki says that her mother now has a shadow over opening doors, facing strangers and even staying at home on her own and this is quite a big effect on her because she does not even want to go home. Niki says that the police have urged her family to be careful when opening the doors, but she points out that the delivery was addressed to Mr Chow and then the next time it will be someone claiming to be Mr Chan the new neighbour, so you can’t be too careful really.
Niki indicates: "If this event was the media taking paparazzi shots, then I hope that they will use other means to gain information and not to disturb my family. If it is the media, then this will betray the respect and trust between people. I hope that everyone will pay attention to this because intrusion into people’s homes to take photographs is a serious matter."
