Rumours are flying around that Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi and billionaire boyfriend Vivi Nevo are separated for around two months.
Rumours of their separation began in April when it was revealed that the couple has delayed their August wedding indefinitely, with Ziyi’s working schedule cited as the major reason.
The couple had kept a high profile relationship since seeing each other in 2007, but was not spotted together in public events for the past few months while Ziyi was busy filming her latest film Sophie Revenge.
In the past Vivi Nevo would pay Ziyi some visits even if she was working, but not the case here. It’s also said that he is not attending the movie premier (next week if not mistaken), which if true could be a huge indicator of their relationship.
Some netizens are speculating that the saga is a disguised promotion for the new movie, but I think Zhang Ziyi is famous enough to not need this stuff for publicity.
Rumours will remain as rumours until proven; but it’s rare that tabloids are pounding on the same old news for months without having decent sources to fuel their speculations… and quite often these rumours would turn factual in the end.
[update] Zhang has denied the rumour on the press screening on July 9.
It has been a frenzy week for Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi, as her topless and rather intimating sunbathing photos were exposed online… prompting wild debates among netizens, Chinese netizens in particular.
The paparazzi pics were taken while Ziyi was on the Caribbean island of St. Barts with her boyfriend Vivi Nevo. It’s said to be a private beach, but it doesn’t matter if it’s private or public… it’s a violation of privacy regardless.
Unfortunately the word privacy is no longer relevant in Hollywood… I think most of the western stars have got used to being hunt down by cameras where ever they go; and if they are getting naked on beaches… they should know what’s coming next.
What’s funny (or perhaps saddening on different perspective) is the responses from the Chinese public about the issue. While there were some folks who showed sympathy for Ziyi, lots of the online comments were rather harsh on the couple.
How is it supposed to be a national shame for topless sunbathing? How is it supposed to be a shame for canoodling with a man of different skin colour? How is it supposed to be a shame if she doesn’t have a 36D figure?
I guess there are too many jealous Chinese men around who are depressed that they couldn’t get a blonde girlfriend while seeing their top star taken by a white dude. I wonder what would be their responses if there’s a top Chinese male star caught sunbathing with a blonde on the beach… jumping in joy?

Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi and her boyfriend Vivi Nevo are engaged and expected to tie their knots in 2009; Vivi Nevo told the press about their plans during a recent event in US.
