If you thought the drama between Wang Leehom (王力宏) and Lee Jing Lei (李靚蕾) had come to an end, we have news. There’s an ongoing season two. Leehom and Jing Lei made headlines last year when Jing Lei publicly accused Leehom of cheating on her.
After much retaliation, everything presumably ended when Leehom apologised and Jing Lei tied up loose ends. Unfortunately, the cast is back for a season two. This time, the argument has shifted from their marriage to the kids.
On 11th January, Jing Lei revealed that Leehom had dropped by her house to visit their children. Unfortunately, he brought company, something which Jing Lei had specified against. Additionally, she claimed he tried to force his way in when she wouldn’t turn off the CCTV or unlock the door. Well, Leehom’s company claims she was using her overactive imagination and told her to go to the police about it, which, Jing Lei claims she has.
However, yesterday (12th January), someone came forth claiming Leehom hadn’t meant any harm. In fact, the singer had dropped by with gifts for the children. The netizen claimed Jing Lei was a liar. They included photos of the gifts, presumably taken by the staff members who were with him. Others pointed out that the photo Jing Lei posted doesn’t show Leehom ‘forcing his way in’. Instead, he’s knocking politely on the door.
The recent controversy has led to netizens being in two minds. Some think Leehom should not have brought near-strangers to the door. They agreed it was terrifying to have three unknown men waiting outside while only Jing Lei, her kids and a maid were inside. They also argued that Leehom releasing photos of the gifts for the kids was a way of gaining sympathy. On the other hand, others argue that Jing Lei is doing the same thing by arguing for her children’s safety. They felt Jing Lei should not have kept Leehom from seeing his kids.
Jing Lei has responded to the issue, claiming Leehom is using the gifts and balloons to divert focus from himself. “No one else (has) this photo except you,” she pointed out. Jing Lei also questioned the purpose of the gifts, claiming he staged the situation for drama.
“You tried to trick me into opening the door that day with gifts and balloons,” she wrote. “You said: I brought a lot of gifts with the two staff members, and the surveillance camera of the doorbell is blocked by the balloon.” Jing Lei reiterated that Leehom had requested she turn off the CCTV, and reassured her there was no one besides the three of them. She then pointed out the man hiding behind the group.
Additionally, she claimed Leehom had a “cyber army” who was working to turn tides in Leehom’s favour. “Life is still long, and all I want is for you to be a normal ex-husband and father to your children so we can live a healthy life both physically and mentally,” she said.
Taiwanese media reported the latest statement from Leehom’s company. Today (13th January), Leehom’s agency announced that they had consulted a lawyer. The lawyer then suggested Leehom should not be alone with Jing Lei without the agency’s approval. The lawyer reportedly stated: “Lee Jing Lei has turned the duo’s divorce into a fictitious and malicious smear campaign.”
Both parents are arguing everything they’re doing is for the good of the kids. However, it’s starting to look like a war between the two while using the kids as ammunition. Hopefully things will die down soon. If not for the former couple, then at least for the children!
