Repeating Rumours about Wang’s Rocky Marriage

Over the past two years, media reports have noted that Wang and Li lacked public appearances together. They also had little interaction on social media.

Previously, the couple would be more lovey-dovey and often posted pictures of each other on their socials.

And in this day and age, posting couple pictures on your social media is becoming like a sign of affirmation.

According to reports, Wang and Li were already preparing to part ways around 2017. However, Li became pregnant with their third child who was born in August 2018.

Apparently, it was also reported that  Li was also not on good terms with Wang’s mother, which was one of the reasons why they divorced.


Wang’s Career in the Entertainment Business

His career started when he released his first Mandopop album in Taiwan. Since then, he has released 15 more albums and also produced songs for other singers.

Wang also has four Golden Melody Awards under his belt for Taiwan’s top music award. Two of them were for “best singer” but the other two were for “best album producer”.

As an all-rounded star, he also participated in several movies. The rise in popularity throughout his film career began in Lust, Caution, which was directed by Academy Award-winner Ang Lee.
