Hong Kong artist Angelababy, real name Angela Yeung Wing (杨颖), and her husband Huang Xiaoming (黄晓明) have been married since 2015. Even though they have been together for about six years and have a child, fans are still hoping the two will divorce.
Recently, fans got excited when they spotted Angelababy hanging out with another male artist. Many thought this would be the end of the couple’s marriage. To their dismay, the couple and their friends shut the rumours down firmly.
On 31st May, Angelababy’s best friend posted a photo of herself and the artist chilling on a yacht. The photo attracted a lot of attention on Weibo, what with the pretty girls and picturesque sunset in the background. However, some sharp-eyed netizens spotted an anomaly in the photo.
They quickly pointed out that the mirror showed the reflection of a male artist. Many suspected it was artist Cai Xukun (蔡徐坤). Fans were quick to announce their speculations, with a few saying, “Someone’s house is about to collapse, and I heard that there’s a little fresh meat (Cai Xukun) who wants to help people raise a baby.”
The photo was quickly taken down, however the damage had been done. Netizens continued their guesses and speculations, until Angelababy’s friends rallied to shut down the rumours. “Keep Running” (aka “Running Man China”) and NCT member Lucas otherwise known as Huang Xuxi (黄旭熙), clarified matters on Weibo. “(Angelababy) brought us out to play!” Lucas said, referring to the “Keep Running” group. Cai also commented on the post, stating it was a team building exercise for the members.
This is not the first time netizens have interfered in Angelababy’s marital affairs. Earlier this year, fans revived a decade-old rumour after seeing Huang and his ex-girlfriend Li Fei’er (李菲儿) on the show “Sister Riding the Wind and Waves 2 (乘风破浪的姐姐)”. Previously, Li hinted that Angelababy had been the reason why Li and Huang had broken up. After seeing the two together on the show, fans started discussing the matter again. Huang and Angelababy both denied the allegation and he withdrew from the show.
Fans also speculated that the two would soon divorce as the couple was rarely seen together in public. Additionally, they also did not post any couple activities online. Although the couple has denied the divorce rumour several times, fans seem very keen on splitting the two apart.
Angela’s best friend later announced that she would avoid posting about Angela in the future. She explained that, as a good friend, she did not want to watch Angela be attacked by fans and their rumours. She hopes to lessen the impact these rumours bring to Angela’s daily life.
Angela and Huang may not publicly advertise their love for one another, but it doesn’t mean they are divorcing anytime soon. We wish the couple a happy life and hope fans can respect their marital affairs too.
