Mr Cheo is the son of Cheo Tong Choon, the chairman of a company selling edible oils including palm oil, Mewah International. Mewah International is currently reportedly worth over S$614 million (US450 million). His older sister is socialite and businesswoman Arissa Cheo, who was married to Taiwanese superstar Vanness Wu, from whom she obtained a divorce in 2018.

Mr Cheo is well-known for having dated Taiwanese pop diva Elva Hsiao in 2014. However, the pair went their separate ways the following year. A year later rumours were swirling that he was dating Mandopop group By2’s Yumi Bai. He had asked her, however, to delete a photo she had posted on social media, to avoid gossip that the two were an item.

Ms Jia’s former K-pop group, MissA, had been famous for their hits “Breathe” and “Bad Girl Good Girl” but disbanded in 2017. Ms Jia then signed up with her current agency, Banana Culture Entertainment, and has been building a career as a Mandopop singer, winning the “Breakthrough Female Artist of the Year” in the 2017 5th Annual V Chart Awards.

“Who’s That Girl,” Ms Jia’s single, reached number six on Billboard China, and her self-titled EP has been making waves in that country.

A representative of Banana Culture Music confirmed that the two are now an item. “It is true that the two are currently dating,” a spokesman for the company said.
