Beijing Pops: Singer Leehom Wang responds to cheating rumors
Do you feel left out when your Chinese colleagues talk about a trendy star? Intrigued by those glamorous Chinese faces in subway ads, but you can’t even tell who they are? Beijing Pops will help you get through it all with the latest pop culture and celebrity news.
On Friday, December 17, just two days after Leehom Wang announced his separation from his wife Jinglei Lee, Lee shared her own lengthy letter via Weibo saying that writing the letter was the hardest decision she had ever made. ever had to take.
“I thought we’d be family forever when I walked down the aisle with you. You were 10 years older than me and you wanted lots of kids, so you kept pushing me to have more. I went through some dramatic changes during the pregnancy, but I faced these challenges on my own,” Lee wrote.
Lee also directly accused Wang of infidelity, saying she had long believed that she was Wang’s “one and only”, although he discovered that he had “so many friends with advantages in different cities” and “spent an entire night partying with one of them after a concert in Shanghai.”
Lee continued, “You said you were unable to control yourself. When I wanted to break off the relationship, you had been calling me for weeks and promised me that you would never do such things again.
After two days of silence, on Sunday night, Wang finally hit back at his ex-wife’s accusations, saying, “This is the hardest day of my life. I face a dilemma in that if I choose to fight back it won’t look good for the mother of my three children, but if I don’t say a word everyone will believe that what pass is true.
Apparently, however, one battle he thought was worth fighting was the infidelity allegations, writing, “I can say with absolute certainty that I have never cheated on my ex-wife before.”
He described their marriage as a living hell, saying he lived in constant fear and going so far as to suggest that Lee forced him into the marriage with her pregnancy. “We weren’t quite there for the wedding when she got pregnant and threatened to never see her and our baby again if I didn’t marry her,” Wang said in the post.
He also dismissed several claims made by Lee regarding their marital properties. “Lee is not someone who won’t take anything from me. She demanded around 150 million RMB which includes real estate and shares of Bel Air Los Angeles,” Wang said.
Unfortunately for Wang, however, his attempts to win sympathy proved fruitless. “I laugh out of my ass! In a marriage that was overflowing with nothing but nightmares, he managed to make three babies! wrote a netizen.
“He knew what kind of responsibilities he had to take on without wearing a condom!” said another.
Lee again refuted Wang’s version of the story: “You probably have so many friends with benefits that you don’t even remember anything. Do I need to mention the time your supposed girlfriend watched the same movie in the same theater when you took me out? »
Lee also pointed out that the Los Angeles real estate and equity investment are original assets in both parties’ names, not assets that Wang would give to her after the divorce.
“The house I live in with my children is only loaned to me temporarily and you expect me to return it to you 18 years later,” Lee added.
In his latest Weibo post on Monday, Wang said he was ready to temporarily retire from the entertainment business and spend time with his parents and children. “I failed to manage my marriage successfully and caused problems for my family in that I did not present the ideal image that a perfect idol should have. It was entirely my fault,” Wang conceded.
Additionally, Wang mentioned that they will have joint custody of the children and that he will transfer the condo to Lee’s name. Similarly, when asked if she would still pursue legal action against Wang in light of her apology, Lee said she would not consider litigation.
The reactions of Internet users
Several die-hard Wang fans called Lee’s posts fake, writing, “Leehom, we will support you no matter what!”
However, the majority of people have a different perspective. “I’ve been a fan of yours for years and I’m very disappointed! You’ve been faking a positive image all this time! wrote one particularly disappointed fan.
Another decided to attack Lee, writing, “Don’t make Lee look like such a naive person. She obviously knows what kind of person Wang is but chose to marry him anyway. What is she looking for in a guy?
Others reacted to the comment by coming to Lee’s defense: “She raised three babies with Wang. She deserves everything she wants!”
“You said you would temporarily leave the entertainment industry? Don’t think that’s the case. Say goodbye to business forever!”, Indignant a user.
Wang’s picture-perfect facade of a handsome, well-educated man with a successful music career was shattered by public opinion within days, with many companies abandoning him after the scandal broke.
“It was not Lee who ruined Wang’s career, but Wang himself,” said one.
Is it time for Wang to say goodbye to his career? Do you think audiences should put aside the personal lives of celebrities to focus on their music? Let us know in the comments.
