Despite rumors to the contrary, casino tycoon Stanley Ho is resting comfortably in a Hong Kong hospital. This news comes from his third wife, Ina Chan Un Chan, and daughter Laurinda, who spoke to the media on February 9, reports the South China Morning Post.
On February 8, the 97-year-old Macau casino magnate was reported to be in failing health with possible organ failure, with doctors advising family members to stay by his side. He’s reportedly resting at the Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital in Happy Valley, Hong Kong.
Chan rejected these reports, telling the media, “He is in good shape. I don’t know why there were such rumours.” They added that he can still eat and talk with his visiting family, and made a Lunar New Year wish for his children to remain obedient.
The reports of his failing health apparently upset the family quite a bit. His daughter added, “Touch wood! There are such rumours in the new year.”
