However, in 2009 Cheng was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and declared unfit for  running the business thereby handing over his throne to the younger of his two daughters, Vivian Cheng. This led to a fiery scandal as Angela and his wife Yang Foo Oi filed a suit in 2010 alleging that Cheng was misled into transferring the funds to Vivian’s account. Cheng, the empire builder passed on in 2012 at the age of 89 and died as one of the top billionaires in Hong Kong. He was ranked as the 14th richest person in Hong Kong by Forbes.
