Sometimes, you just have to ask yourself: Is this relationship worth saving? Taiwanese actress Barbie Hsu (徐熙媛) and husband Wang Xiaofei (汪小菲) don’t think so. Their love-at-first-sight relationship which lasted for 10 years officially ended yesterday (22nd November).
The news was jarring but not unexpected. After all, Barbie had announced her intention to divorce Wang in June. Hints had also been dropped, such as Wang removing traces of Barbie from his Douyin. What was surprising is how amiable the couple is about the split. Barbie recently gave her blessings for Wang to find another woman. As it turns out, Wang may have already done so prior to their divorce!
Barbie demanded a divorce after Wang belittled Taiwan on Weibo. Although he corrected himself and made a public apology later, the damage was seemingly done. Wang’s trip back to his family in Taiwan in September was not for some quality family time as many expected. Instead, he was there to discuss the divorce with Barbie. The couple filed for divorce in early November. It was then finalised yesterday.
The former couple dissolved their marriage peacefully and reassured fans they would still be friends. Barbie also gave her blessings to Wang, hoping he would find another partner. “It’s easy to find a girlfriend with better conditions,” the actress said, pointing out that Wang had a career, looked young for a 40-year-old and is still handsome. However, paparazzi claim Wang already has another beau!
According to “Here! Not news (这! 不是新闻)”, paparazzi have been tailing Wang around and it has paid off. They discovered that Wang had been seeing someone new for the past six months. Unfortunately, the paparazzi did not manage to snap any photographic evidence. However, they claim that his new beau is in her 20s, looks beautiful and is supposedly quite well off.
Wang’s new girlfriend apparently lives in a gated community in Chaoyang, Beijing. The paparazzi alleged that her area is more expensive than Barbie’s as it is well guarded. This has also prevented them from snapping any hard evidence of the couple, but they’re certainly spreading the news.
Although the couple were happily married with two kids, there were cracks in their relationship. Wang supposedly prioritised his work over family and Barbie apparently did not compromise enough to meet her husband halfway.
Well, hopefully their future relationships, both with others and each other will work out better. We wish them all the best as they go their separate ways. You can check out the full report by “Here! Not news (这! 不是新闻)” here:
