[Em: I apologise for this awful pic of Michael, but it was the best I could find...................]

[Ta Kung Pao]

With recent reports that Jordan Chan allegedly assaulted a reporter after being followed to a meeting with Cecilia Cheung and is under investigation with the police, his good friend Michael Tse was asked about this incident. When asked whether he has tried to persuade Jordan into calming down, Michael admitted that if he was going to listen, then he would have listened a long time ago. He adds that this is not the first time it has happened and this is probably just Jordan's 'image'. Michael hopes that both sides are okay and that they will settle their differences out of court. He feels that a peaceful settlement will be the best for everyone and also hopes that the press will not be too pushy when they are interviewing so that incidents like this will be prevented.

In response to Jordan Chan's reports, good friend and former co-member of the group "Wind Fire Sea" Michael Tse said: "His personality has always been like that and it can't be helped, I don't know why he is so bad-tempered, I really don't understand him. Problems can be solved by talking it over, but we can't talk him round, if we could then this would never have happened in the first place." Michael laughs that in the past, they would use drinking games to settle arguments, as for whether they were violent, he says: "I have Jason Chu on my side, otherwise I'd never beat him!"

Michael says that it should not be as serious as the report indicates and adds: "Sometimes just a touch is taken as an assault, but I hope that they are both okay and will settle out of court. In the future, the press should not be so pushy and the artist should not be so bad tempered." He also jokes that reporters need to prepare protective pads and knee pads when they do interviews!
