After two years of marriage, Hong Kong actress Jacquelin Ch’ng has reportedly filed for divorce from Taiwanese businessman, Brian Yang.

According to the 42-year-old TVB star, distance was the biggest obstacle to their marriage.

Shortly after tying the knot in March 2020, the couple lived separately to focus on their careers. Ch’ng continued living in Hong Kong to concentrate on her acting gigs whereas Yang returned to Taiwan to handle his bubble tea business.

The Malaysian-born actress told Hong Kong media that she would often argue with her husband over settlement issues, but the ultimate deal breaker for her was the broken promises made by Yang.

In May, Ch’ng was left disappointed when Yang couldn’t make it for her birthday. He only sent a text message wishing her well and promised to visit her in August. However, this meeting never happened, according to her.

Additionally, Yang also broke his promise to live with her after stating that he would not leave Taiwan.

“He promised to move to Hong Kong or the Mainland for me but in the end, he still couldn't give up his business in Taiwan,” Ch’ng told Sohu Entertainment, adding that he insisted she moved to Taiwan instead.

Since both had conflicting priorities – and were not willing to sacrifice their respective careers – the two-year marriage ultimately came to an end.

Ch’ng shared that the divorce is a mutual decision by both parties. She also added that she is taking the divorce positively and not letting it deter her from pursuing future relationships.
