- Johnny Tri Nguyen (2007-2011) – According to reports, Ngo started going out with actor Johnny Tri Nguyen in 2007.

Although Johnny was married to Cathy Viet Thi, the rumors of them being a couple were incessant in the Vietnamese press. Then, in 2008, Johnny separated from his wife. This led to a huge scandal as Ngo was slammed by some tabloids and general audience for playing a key role in the dissolution of Johnny’s marriage. They eventually made their relationship public. Their relationship lasted for a couple of years after being made public. In the summer of 2011, the rumors of them having being separated started swirling around. Ngo had allegedly started going out with someone else. They eventually released a statement confirming that they were no longer together. But they insisted that their separation was temporary as they wanted to give it a try. But they failed to make it work.
