Template:Infobox Chinese-language singer and actor Isabella Leong Lok-Sze (born 23 June 1988 in Macau) is a Hong Kong-based actress and former singer.

Career Edit

Her father was a descendant of a prominent Macanese family of Portuguese-English heritage, and her mother is Chinese. Leong dropped out of school at the age of 12 to join Emperor Entertainment Group as a teenage model.[1]

She later turned to singing and released her debut album, Isabella, at 16 years of age. Isabella did not achieve the success hoped for and Leong turned to acting instead. From 2005-2007, she made a string of films including The Eye 10, Bug Me Not!, Isabella, Diary, and Spider Lilies.

Leong went on to land her first American film role in The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, which was released in 2008.[2]

EEG contract disputeEdit

Emperor Entertainment Group filed a lawsuit in the High Court on 3 April 2008 to seek damages from Leong for breaking a 10-year contract which Leong's mother signed for her when she was only 12 years old. Leong filed a writ against the company on 27 April.[1] In November 2008 the legal battle between Leong and EEG ended in an out-of-court settlement, with the star "free to pursue her career".[3]

Personal life Edit

In 2009, Leong gave birth to a son with Hong Kong billionaire Richard Li, son of billionaire Li Ka-shing. For this, Leong was given two mansions in San Francisco and HK$50 million in cash, totaling more than HK$200 million. The Li family also provided her with an entourage of care-givers, including five bodyguards, four full-time nannies and a personal attendant.[4] There has been speculation that a 10-digit pre-nuptial agreement is in place to take care of Leong’s future needs and also to prevent any “potential problems” that could arise in the future.[4]

A 100-day-old banquet was held for her son from July 9-11, 2009, for three consecutive days, with some of the city's celebrities like Stanley Ho and his second wife Lam Wan Ying, and Tsang Yam Pui and his wife having been spotted in attendance. The banquet was rumoured to cost over 3 million USD.[5]
