With the loss of her once shining career and a broken engagement, the last two years hasn’t exactly been smooth sailing for actress Fan Bingbing. As one of China’s most recognized faces with fiance Li Chen by her side, the future looked bright. However, it all came crashing down when the actress was found guilty of tax evasion and fined millions as part of her punishment. Even if she didn’t go to jail, Fan Bingbing’s career hasn’t been the same ever since.
A year later, it was the actress’ love life that took beating when it was announced that China’s golden couple had broken up. Fan Bingbing and Li Chen first announced their relationship to the public in 2015 and got engaged two years later. And all through her scandal, Li Chen has always stood by her, so we all thought that at least in the romance front, all’s well for her. But alas, it just was not meant to be.
Appearing as the July cover girl for Style magazine, Fan Bingbing shared a bit about her broken engagement for the first time ever and freely admits to having cried herself to sleep in the middle of the night especially right after her breakup. She also reveals that listening to the song No Longer Let You Be Lonely (不再让 你孤单) never fails to make her cry. The past two years have been hard but Fan Bingbing says she’s incredibly lucky to have her family’s support. “They have always been my strongest and warmest supporters” says the actress.
The way she sees it, facing difficult moments is a fact of life, and each person has their own unique way of understanding and defining the challenges life throws at them. This is something you will only learn once faced with the situation. But life must go on, and you must learn to overcome each hurdle step by step and to navigate through the difficult moments.
