On December 15, there were reports by Taiwanese media that Wang Leehom (王力宏) and his wife, Lee Jinglei (李靚蕾), were divorced. Wang Leehom’s manager responded to the media saying that according to his knowledge, there is no divorce at all. However, Wang Leehom posted on Weibo and Facebook shortly after his manager’s response and revealed him and Lee Jinglei have filed for divorce.
Wang Leehom’s post read: “Jinglei and my private life is very simple and pure, so I won’t be responding anymore to any media outlet. During these years of marriage, there were too many areas where I was lacking and I also feel very regretful. Right now we have different views and plans for our future lifestyle, so we have decided to live separately. Although the application has already been submitted, but we will always be a family. Pleading to the public to give us privacy and space, don’t bother the family. Thank you everyone for your concern.”
