Taiwanese celebrity couple Harlem Yu and Annie Yi have ended their nine-years marriage after months of speculations. The ex-couple issued separate statement on March 20th to announce their divorce.
It’s a pity to see them splitting; they had been one of Taiwan’s most celebrated celebrity couple… in relationship for more than a decade before walking the aisle on Valentine’s Day in 2000.
Their marriage was in jeopardy in late 2008 when Annie was spotted holding hands with another guy in Beijing. It seemed like the couple was trying to rescue the marriage after that, but obviously fruitless in the end.
Most of the public voices are sympathising Harlem; but I think the public is being too harsh on Annie, as there were hints that their relationship was already heading to the wrong direction since two-three years ago…
Annie has been spending most of her time in China for the past few years building her career while Harlem focusing on his in Taiwan; obviously there’s already something wrong with the marriage then… and it’s a matter of time before something finally triggered the end of the relationship.
The divorce are done rather peacefully though; there’s not much financial conflicts as they are both financially independent, and their six-year-old kid will be under Harlem’s custody with Annie granted (probably limitless) visiting rights.
Well, best wishes to both of them… hope that they will find happiness after the split.
