Gigi Lai is a Hong Kong actress and Cantopop singer. Lai was under a contract with the television station TVB and she retired in October 2008. She is popularly nicknamed by the Hong Kong media as the "Goddess of Beauty"
People who glance at Gigi's family background will think that she grew up in luxury and wealth. However, the reality is the complete opposite. After Gigi's grandmother died, Gigi's father, aunts, and uncles all divided the family's assets. Since Gigi's father had hearing loss, his siblings were prejudiced against him and did not think highly of him.
Gigi's mother had to work as a driver delivering goods in order to support the family. When Gigi was only 14 years old, she entered the entertainment industry and earned money to support the whole family. She also paid for her younger brother's education expenses. [Gigi's younger brother is now a successful doctor with his own skin care clinic.]
"When my father was young, he got Meningitis and only retained 20% of his original hearing. Now he is 70 years old and his hearing is only worse. Our family was always bullied by the neighbors. [As our apartment did not have its own bathroom, we had to share the bathroom in the hallway with the neighbors]. But I was afraid to even use the bathroom in the hallway [due to the neighbors bullying us]. Afterwards, my father built a make-shift toilet for us in the kitchen so that we don't have to use the one in the hallway. We tried to purify the air, but during dinner time, you can still smell the toilet odor."
