Hong Kong star Gillian Chung has parted ways with her Taiwanese husband, aesthetics doctor Michael Lai.

Chung, 39, married Lai, 30 in 2018. They have no children.

Lai confirmed to Taiwanese media last Friday night that the pair had split up. He later uploaded a lengthy post on Instagram, where he admitted to being single again.

Lai, who gained recognition in Taiwan as "Medicine's Sunny Wang" due to his good looks and resemblance to actor Wang, was previously married to a social media influencer before he tied the knot with Chung.

In his post, he wrote that Chung regretted marrying him. This was though Chung told the hosts of Taiwan variety show Truth Everything last year that she was the one who popped the question, telling Lai they should get married.

Lai wrote: "In 2018, at our pre-wedding party in Los Angeles, you suddenly became distant and cold. I asked why and you told me you regret it, that you don't love me very much and that you're not suited for marriage. We talked a lot and decided to still give it a shot.

"In March this year, you called to say: 'I'm sorry. I thought I would slowly fall in love with you after marriage but I could not.'"

He added: "I think I'll still be friends with Gillian. She is the kindest, most innocent, bravest and most beautiful woman I've ever met. She is just no longer in love with me. Thank you for all that you have given me. If I could do it all over again, I will still propose to you and marry you."

我又單身了,一切發生的很突然。 記得2月我到馬來西亞探妳的班我們一起運動,我要離開時妳還說想送我到機場,因為疫情我們不知道何時能再見。 將近三年的相處時光像一場美夢般美好,我們去了夏威夷跳傘,去了東京吃壽司,去京都吃懷石料理,去了荷蘭、比利時、馬爾地夫,去了英國錄了我第一次的真人秀,去了LA辦了婚前派對,去了墨西哥拍了我們冷的要死的水底婚紗照,去了澳洲陪妳工作。 記得第一次去成都看妳的演唱會,我開完笑的問原來妳麽紅,妳還驕傲的跟我說:妳才知道妳老婆多火。 記得武漢的演唱會下著大雪路面結冰,妳的妝髮師過不來,我們在後臺緊張的跳腳。記得西寧的演唱會,記得澳門的演唱會,我爸媽在臺下感動的哭了。 聽了妳這麼多場LOL,我還是聽不膩,妳是一位如此優秀的演員、歌手、artist。 我不只深愛著妳,也是妳的終實粉絲。 我們在香港辦了眾星雲集的盛大婚禮,是我這輩子想都沒想過的事,英皇集團全部人如此幫忙,我們得到了大家的祝福,對我一個小醫師來說,真的是想都不敢想。 妳對我是如此的好,送了我手錶,送我衣服,送到我叫妳不要再送了,妳還是忍不住要幫我買。為了我飛來飛去,常常來台灣陪我。記得我們一起追劇、一起玩switch、一起拼樂高,記得妳知道我出差辛苦,回來時總是把家打掃乾淨,笑著跟我說:老公我很棒吧,我當時有多感動。 妳也時常鼓勵我,說我的技術這麼好,為什麼不自己出來做。想起越診所開幕時妳來幫忙剪綵,像個老闆娘ㄧ樣忙進忙出,歷歷在目,這輩子都報不了這個恩情。 回想2018時,LA的婚前派隊後妳突然變的冷淡,我問妳為什麼,妳跟我說妳後悔了,妳沒有很愛我,覺得自己不適合婚姻,我們討論了許久,還是決定再一起努力。 今年3月,妳打來跟我說:對不起,以為婚後會慢慢愛上我,但真的沒辦法,想要分開時,我還以為妳在開完笑。 直到收到妳寄來簽了字的分居協議,我從難過到憤怒到失落到接受現實,我想人生就是如此,雖然到現在我還走不出來,但謝謝妳誠實的告訴我妳的感受,讓我們可以走向不同的未來。 好久沒聯絡了,但妳想必也跟我ㄧ樣難過吧!想到妳獨自在家跟QQ,還有嬌媽、妹妹、表姊、豪仔的失望,心裡還是不捨。 我想以後我跟嬌還會是朋友,她是我遇過最善良、最單純、最勇敢、最美麗的女人,只是她不愛我了。 謝謝妳曾經給我的一切,如果重來一次,我還是會跟妳求婚,和妳結婚。 下次來台北我們再一起去喝運頓梗湯吧! (以後關於婚姻的問題,不再做任何回應)

Chung's manager Mani Fok told Hong Kong media the couple have agreed to separate, but that divorce proceedings are not yet underway. The couple had reportedly signed a pre-nuptial agreement.

According to Hong Kong reports, Fok said the state of the couple's marriage was intended to be kept a secret as friends of the couple had hoped they might reconcile eventually. She added that Chung's lawyers have sent a reminder to Lai to keep a low profile after his public post on Instagram.

Chung, best known as one-half of the Cantopop act Twins with Charlene Choi, has kept quiet about the break-up, though a good friend of hers reportedly told Hong Kong media the couple's problems stemmed from Lai's flirtatious behaviour with other women. – The Straits Times/Asia News Network
