First divorce rumors
The first time rumors of marital problems were going around started in 2006. A female artist, who claims she got the news from Ying’s neighbor in the US, revealed Michael wanted a male heir to take over the family business one day, causing a rift in their marriage. That same year, it was revealed Brigitte and her daughters moved out from their Kowloon Peak mansion to another mansion in Kowloon Tong, which led to the divorce rumors. Those rumors were shot down when Brigitte moved back to the Kowloon Peak mansion the next year.
Mistress and Son in Shanghai
It started in 2012 again when it was rumored Michael Ying wanted a son, and allegedly went to Shanghai to get a mistress. A source also reveals he had been supporting this mistress for some time now and she allegedly even had a son with him. She reveals that their divorce is not a secret. When Hong Kong media asked her about these rumors, Brigitte didn’t respond until they kept pestering her, which she simply said, “Not true.”
During Brigitte’s 60th birthday bash at the Peninsula Hotel, Brigitte and her family was there to celebrate, knocking down previous baseless rumors. Brigitte later went to her Weibo to express her thoughts. “If you ask me what thoughts I have on turning 60, I will say satisfied. I have so many good friends that care about me. I have three great and wonderful daughters. I have a great husband. They quietly support me and tolerate me. This year’s birthday, I gave everyone a book,《雲去雲來》, which I wrote myself. This has a lot of meaning to me. I hope to share what I see, what I ask, what I think, and what I want with everyone.”
