Wang Leehom (王力宏) and Lee Jing Lei (李靚蕾)’s supposedly perfect marriage fell into shambles at the end of 2021. While news of the divorce was shocking, things got worse when Jing Lei claimed Leehom had cheated on her multiple times.
Although they officially divorced last year, this has apparently been a long time coming. In fact, there were rumours that Leehom and Jing Lei were going to divorce as early as 2016!
Fans had suspicions that not all was well with the duo. According to netizens, there was a distinct lack of couple photos since 2019. However, it turns out that had only been the tip of the iceberg. According to informed sources, as stated by Xuan, the former couple already had plans to divorce since 2016.
It was supposedly after they had their second child. At that time, Leehom’s family created a divorce settlement agreement for Jing Lei to sign. The divorce agreement apparently took place in New York and included dividing their property. However, Jing Lei was surprised to discover how little of an alimony they had allocated for her. She was very reluctant to sign the agreement then as she felt Leehom’s family had wronged her.
From then till 2019, the ex-couple were focused on negotiating the terms of their divorce. During that time, they had several consultants, and discussed their husband-and-wife relationship multiple times. It took about five years for them to come to an agreement about their divorce. Sadly, it still ended messily when Jing Lei called out Leehom after he let her take the fall for their split.
Jing Lei had hoped to bring the matter to an end with her final letter on the issue. But, a netizen revived the scandal when they claimed Leehom was going to refute her claims in a livestream. With more people coming to the singer’s defence, things may be changing for Leehom. In fact, several reports recently claimed he’s been taken off the “bad artists” list.
Neither one has said anything since they closed the case on their divorce. Hopefully, the duo are focused on rebuilding their lives and moving on from everything.
