THE people’s court in Shayibak district in Urumqi, China, confirmed on Tuesday that it had handled the divorce of Chinese singer Faye Wong and businessman Li Yapeng on Sept 13.
Earlier doubts about the celebrity couple’s sudden separation – which shocked her fans – being an elaborate publicity stunt came about after Urumqi civil servants reportedly said they had not handled the case.
The speculation persisted even after Li’s assistant had apparently confirmed that the divorce did take place in the former actor’s hometown of Xinjiang.
A Weibo user named Yaba or Dumb, whose picture of the couple reading their divorce agreement went viral last week, also said the photo was taken at the people’s court in Shayibak district, according to NetEase news portal.
The photo showed the couple seated on sofas in an office, with a female official next to them. Wong was in a burgundy outfit, which she was also wearing when she returned to Beijing on Sept 13 night.
Yaba also said that “a lot of people in the courthouse” knew about the divorce, reported NetEase.
Wong, 44, and Li, 41, married in 2005. They have a daughter aged seven. Wong has another daughter, 17, by her first husband, Chinese musician Dou Wei. – Source: The Straits Times, Singapore/Asia News Network
