Ever since Chinese actress, Li Xiaolu (李小璐), was embroiled in an alleged cheating scandal with Chinese rapper, PG ONE, in 2017, her relationship with husband, Jia Nailiang (賈乃亮), has been magnified by the media. Since the scandal, there were many rumors of the two having marital problems. On April 17th, Chinese media claimed the couple were already divorced and circulated a divorce agreement allegedly belonging to the couple.
Li Xiaolu and Jia Nailiang have since come forward to deny the validity of the alleged divorce agreement circulating online. Li Xiaolu responded to Sina Entertainment saying, “It’s fake. It’s false news and kindly ask the media to delete it. We will definitely go after those responsible for circulating gossip.” As for Jia Nailiang, he told Sina Entertainment, “The rumors circulating online are fabricated and groundless. The internet is not exempt from the legal system. The media should adhere to basic morals and be cognizant of legal ramifications. We have already collected evidence of all the sources circulating these false rumors. All the follow up matters will be handled by the lawyers.”
The divorce rumors became rampant when netizens noticed Li Xiaolu didn’t send her well wishes to Jia Nailiang on his 35th birthday, breaking a 6 year tradition. In addition, netizens noticed Li Xiaolu had removed the backdrop picture of her and Jia Nailiang from her Weibo on the 15th. Both parties have also limited to only showing their Weibo posts from the past 6 months.
