HK actress Grace Lam faints upon arrival at HK airport after 'robbery' in Malaysia

Following controversy over a robbery in Malaysia that turned out to be staged, Hong Kong actress Grace Lam fainted upon her arrival at Hong Kong International Airport.

The 39-year-old had earlier live-streamed herself speaking to fans in Bentong, Pahang when a passer-by appeared to suddenly snatch her handbag from behind.

Grace reportedly even said, "Thankfully my manager and local friends managed to help me catch the thief and I recovered my belongings."

She later clarified that the incident was merely staged for filming and apologised for misleading viewers.

Netizens slammed her for intentionally spoiling Malaysia's reputation and the nation's top cop, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar, wanted Lam listed as an "unwelcome individual".

Lam's manager Andy Ma said that his company would seek legal advice before issuing any reply on the matter, reported The Star.
