Is This Mayor Gregor’s New Girlfriend?

Is This Mayor Gregor's New Girlfriend?


Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson, who announced a separation from his wife of 30 years last summer, has apparently started to  date a Chinese pop star, Wanting Qu.

Local civic blogger Frances Bula first reported the story earlier this week.

“According to extremely reliable sources (this is not gossip), he is currently seeing Wanting Qu, a 31-year-old Chinese popular-music star who has a lot of buzz in Vancouver,”

The Province followed up with Bula’s report by contacting the mayors office who responded by stating it doesn’t comment on the mayors private life.

Wanting Qu was born in China and moved to Vancouver at the age of 16. She briefly attended Simon Fraser University before pursuing a career in music. Qu has been seen at numerous city events with Robertson. Last year, Qu was also appointed Vancouver’s first tourism ambassador in China.

The two visited China in November 2013 as part of of a delegation to improve business and cultural ties between Vancouver and Chinese cities.

Gregor has been married to his wife Amy since the 1980s and have four children.
