Pop Star Tse Sued for Damages Over Crash

HONG KONG - Asian pop sensation Nicholas Tse has been sued by a lawyer who says he was injured during a car crash involving Tse last June.

Lawyer William Kuo said Tse's negligence caused the crash and that the owner of Tse's Audi, Imperial Well Ltd., should be held liable.

On June 29, Tse's Audi collided with another car, police have said. Tse suffered head injuries but quickly recovered.

The South China Morning Post said Tuesday Kuo was in the car hit by Tse, although the lawsuit, filed Saturday, doesn't specify this. It did say Kuo was also injured, but did not give details.

The lawsuit did not specify the amount of damages being sought. Kuo and Tse's lawyers did not immediately return a phone call from The Associated Press on Tuesday.

Tse, the son of movie star Patrick Tse Yin and veteran actress Deborah Li, has gotten into trouble previously from bad driving.

Tse was convicted last year of conspiring to pervert the course of justice after letting a chauffeur take the blame when Tse crashed his Ferrari in March 2002. No one was injured.

He was ordered to complete 240 hours of community service, but spent two weeks in jail while awaiting sentencing. Tse has appealed the conviction, but is serving his sentence.

Tse also had his license suspended for a year because of speeding.

The actor and singer took a half-year break from show business during his troubles last year but recently launched a comeback.

 Nicholas song is remixed into a dance version?

(4/22/2003) Nicholas Tse Ting Fung yesterday attended a radio program and blasted his record label Emperor for remixing his hit WOOT JEUK VIVA two years ago. "The dance version's first line echoed WHO for 30 seconds, the sweat on my forehead was bigger than Mariko-chan's head. People were laughing themselves to death. I complained to the company and even sent a memo in the name of my production company to tell the label to give me an advanced warning before messing with my songs."

"The trend now is 'creative singers'. Everyone says they know everything, they overly embrace 'creativity'. If I follow trends then four years ago I wouldn't have carried a guitar, performed on stage, and being made fun of as an idiot when the trend was dance. The company even forced me to dance, I refused to give in and returned to Canada."

Nic was also angry about a magazine publishing his idol Wong Ka Kui's remains. "Why does he get no respect before and after his death? I think Ka Kui wouldn't mind because he is already at another place and doesn't have to concern himself with worldly things. (The magazine is your company's flag!) I am angry no matter which flag it is under."
