The two has had an eventful two months when it first announced Kitty Zhang allegedly slashed her husband in a domestic violence dispute during this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival. Then days after the incident, Kitty Zhang Yuqi announced through her manager that she and Yuan Bayuan would be divorcing. However, the two were seen walking hand in hand in the streets of Shanghai earlier this month, seemingly heading for reconciliation.
It was also reported the family of four were still living together at their original home. Chinese media also reported Yuan Bayuan was present at a function Kitty Zhang Yuqi attended on the 22nd of this month. The two were seen leaving the event together and headed back home. The actress went a step further to confirm the reconciliation rumors today by posting the following caption on her Weibo account: “A single woman can accept all the single men in the world pursuing her, including her ex-husband.”
Many rumors have circulated about their relationship and why they divorced. One rumor alleges that Yuan Bayuan once owed 6 million RMB in gambling debts and frequently owed wages to his employees. It is believed the divorce was done in order to protect his family.
