CoCo Lee, Bruce Rockowitz & Ne-Yo
Congratulations to one of Asia's biggest Superstars CoCo Lee, who just wedded Canadian Billionaire Businessman Bruce Rockowitz.  Festivities took place in Hong Kong at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Kowloon.  Lee, a Singer-Songwriter who was raised in San Francisco and is based out of Taiwan, met Rockowitz in Hong Kong eight years ago.  For those who were wondering, Vera Wang custom-designed her Wedding Dress.

The lavish Ceremony, witnessed by 300 of the Couple's Friends and Family,  was followed by a lavish Reception where guests dined on Italian fare including Wagyu Beef Cheek & Sole, Burrata Cheese Ravioli, Tiramisu, Vanilla Panna Cotta and much more. A private Jewish Ceremony also took place yesterday.

Although there was much extravagance at the Rockowitz-Lee Wedding, the Entertainment perhaps was the biggest thing they had in-store.  Major Stars Bruno Mars, The Black Eyed Peas, Alicia Keys, Ne-Yo performed before the intimate audience, with Lee joining them on-stage at points.  It is said also that Oprah Winfrey and Jennifer Lopez (some are saying Beyoncé too!) were flown-in privately for the occasion too... still awaiting Photos to confirm this. All this rang-in at a whopping total $20 million US!

Although Lee is a v. successful Entertainer in her own right being the first-ever Chinese Artist to sign a major U.S. Record Deal with Sony Music in 1999, Rockowitz definitely is doing extremely well also as the Chief Executive Office and President of Li & Fung (Trading) Ltd. The Company is one of the Asia's largest Suppliers to U.S. Retailers, i.e. Wal-Mart.  He earns, as per Bloomberg Businessweek, an annual salary of $4.8 million, with a $25 million Bonus per year.

I had the pleasure of meeting the bubbly Lee back in 2000 on a visit to Hong Kong and her Mother, Mama Lee, was even sweet enough to take a couple others and me out to Dinner while she was busy doing Press at her Hotel in Tsimshatsui.  Looking back, I regret never asking for a Photo together!

She also recorded a Duet Version of How Am I Supposed to Live Without You recently with Michael Bolton too for the Asian Pressing of his Gems Album.  Amaze!
