Vanness Wu and Tiffany Xu are only good friends
According to various news sources, apart from playing onscreen lovers in the ongoing Taiwanese drama series, Next Stop, Happiness, both Vanness Wu and Tiffany Xu are speculated to be more than just friends. Acting as Vanness's fiancée in the show, a member of the production team revealed that Vanness would often ask Tiffany, "Do you want a ride in my car?" when they changed filming locations.
He reportedly picked her up from her house in the mornings and would wait for the 25-year-old actress to finish filming her scenes before sending her home. It was reported that Vanness also gave Tiffany a book, immensely touching her with his enthusiasm and gallant mannerisms.
Currently in Japan, Vanness commented on the matter via his manager, Katie, "Sending her to and fro was only a form of convenience when we end work early - I have never picked her up before. The book was her birthday present."
Reporters asked Vanness's manager if the 31-year-old actor-singer was interested in Tiffany and she said, "He really admires her. [He] feels that she can write poetry and is very talented. However, he has no intentions to pursue her, they're just good friends."
When Tiffany was asked if Vanness was pursuing her, the actress immediately protested, "No! The book was a birthday present from him. Sometimes I would hitch a ride from him after we end work but he has never sent me home."
Known to be dating fellow Taiwanese actor Ethan Ruan for the past two-and-a-half years, Tiffany's relationship with Ethan was exposed by the media after they were spotted sunbathing together in Kenting last July. The couple's relationship was previously reported to be on the rocks due to Ethan's hectic filming schedule for the upcoming movie, Monga.
I don't believe this news, and you shouldn't either. Van Ness has already cleared this up on his blog before this news was published~ He's just being a gentlemen.
