Actors Nicky Wu (吴奇隆) and Cecilia Liu (刘诗诗) were from different worlds but they fell in love. The duo met while filming the drama “Scarlet Heart (步步惊心)” and later got married in 2016. They have had a peaceful marriage so far with their 2-year-old son.
However, someone seems keen on upsetting the boat. A certain netizen recently started a rumour that the couple’s marriage was in danger and that they were about to divorce. The rumour was disruptive enough that the couple came forth to clarify the issue via legal means.
As far as anyone knows, Nicky and Cecilia have been perfectly happy and in love. However, on 25th February, a comic surfaced, showing a couple who were going to separate because of an affair. What caught netizens’ eyes was the wedding photo drawn in the comic. Apparently, it looked similar to the couple’s wedding photo. This only exacerbated already existing whispers of the duo being in the midst of completing the divorce process.
Nicky had attempted to shut down the issue by contacting a lawyer. On 25th February, the lawyer, on behalf of Nicky, released a statement to resolve the defamation. “You insinuated my client in the comic and fabricated their emotional journey,” the statement read. The lawyer claimed that posting the comic on Weibo allowed other netizens to misunderstand the situation and could damage Nicky’s reputation. In addition to deleting the comic, they asked the netizen to apologise.
Unfortunately, it was too late. Three other netizens also started circulating the news. The lawyer issued another letter to address the trio on 27th February. This time, the three netizens were merely requested to stop spreading the rumour. The lawyer added that netizens should learn to “distinguish right and wrong” and surf the internet “in a civil manner“.
Nicky and Cecilia also chimed in their two cents. They initially had no intention of responding as it wasn’t anyone’s business. However, the issue had supposedly affected their lives, as well as their family and friends. “Please don’t spread false remarks,” the two stated. “We have been doing well, thank you for your concern.” All netizens involved in the issue have been warned of a lawsuit if they continue defaming the actors.
Well, its clear that some netizens jumped the gun when it came to their marriage. Although, we can’t exactly blame said netizens. After all, Wang Leehom’s divorce certainly threw many for a loop. However, we wish the couple well and hope their marriage stays peaceful and healthy!
