Everyone always hopes for a long lasting relationship. But everyone also knows it can change at the drop of a hat.
Faye Wong (王菲) and Nicholas Tse (謝霆鋒) have had an on-again, off-again relationship. In light of recent events, there have been rumours they are off again. However, Nicholas Tse has stopped the rumours with one bold move.
The couple initially dated in 2000 and broke up two years later. They got back together again in 2014, after Faye divorced actor Li Yapeng and Nicholas split with Cecilia Cheung. While many fans were hoping for a happy ending for the couple, in February 2020, rumours that the couple had split again started spreading.
Fans were concerned as the couple had been maintaining radio silence about their relationship. They also noted that the duo hadn’t spent Nicholas’ last birthday together. In December 2020, doubt was further cemented when Faye was spotted with someone new, and Nicholas was nowhere in sight. Faye and her new friend, Ryan, seemed close which made fans assume he was her new beau.
Earlier this month (March 2021), Nicholas was on a live broadcast when he brought up his thoughts about extramarital affairs. They were discussing their personalities when Nicholas said, “The details are important as well, that’s why cheating makes me…” and clenched his fists. Fans were uncertain who the jab was alluded to and conspiracy theories abounded. One netizen went as far as to say, “Could this be his way of announcing that he and Faye are over ‘cos she cheated on him?”
With all the rumours in the air, many fans were awaiting a statement from the duo to clarify the situation. Nicholas did one better. He was spotted in Beijing dressed in a grey hoodie with a mask and a cap tugged low. Apparently, after landing in Beijing, Nicholas went straight to Faye’s house and spent the night there. In one swift move, he had crushed all breaking-up rumours and showed that they were still sweet on each other.
Fans were relieved and said as much on the internet. Some netizens commented that their private lives had nothing to do with the world and people should not be spreading rumours of their breakup.
Whether the couple chooses to stay together or break up, we shall honour their decision. (Although we secretly hope for the former!)
