For the past decade, Jolin Tsai (蔡依林) has been dodging questions about her parents’ marriage after her father had been noticeably missing from family photos.
This week, the 39-year-old singer finally admitted that Papa and Mama Tsai have divorced but refused to elaborate further as this was a private affair.
So why come clean now?
A few days ago, Taiwanese news website CTWANT was tipped off that Jolin’s dad has been living with a Thai woman in Xinzhuang District, New Taipei for a few years now. Mirror Media even confirmed that they have 2 sons together, a 5-year-old and a 2-year-old.
Sure enough, the little tip was true when paparazzi followed them for a few days. They were photographed taking part in father-son activities such as frisbee and baseball at a nearby park. Papa Tsai was also seen transporting his young family around in his motorbike.
No word yet if Jolin has any relationship with her much younger step siblings, who are half Thai.
