Zanilia Zhao Liying and William Feng Shaofeng’s story has been full of surprises. The two stars who never confirmed the rumors surrounding them suddenly announced during Zhao Liying’s birthday on October 16, 2018 that they’ve gotten married. They confirmed the pregnancy rumors on New Year’s Day in 2019 and shared the happy news that has Zhao Liying has safely given birth to their son “Xiang Xiang (想想)” in March 2019.
On April 23, Zhao Liying and Feng Shaofeng suddenly announced their divorce. While there have been repeated divorce rumors surrounding them some of which where denied in the past, the news still comes as a surprise since the two were even spotted vacationing to Sanya together two months ago. Feng Shaofeng tagged Zhao Liying on social media to say, “The days are long, the past is very good, hope the future is even better. @ZhaoLiying.” As Netizens digest the news, April 23 has quickly become a doomsday for couples. It can be remembered that internet celebrity Grace Chow exposed her ex-bf Show Luo for cheating on the same day last year to mark one of the ugliest breakups in C-ent.
Joint Statements from Zhao Liying and Feng Shaofeng’s Studios
To all the friends who care for Ms. Zhao Liying and Mr. Feng Shaofeng:
After careful deliberation, Ms. Zhao Liying and Mr. Feng Shaofeng have decided to tell everyone: Ms. Zhao Liying and Mr. Feng Shaofeng have decided to breakup amicably and end their marriage. They have completed the corresponding paperwork in recent days.
The two got together because of work, it is also because of work that they were often apart which led to their decision to go back to being friends. During their time together, they treated each other sincerely and experienced beautiful moments together. Even though they’ve chosen to part ways, the two are very thankful for the past where they have met and known each other. This is a mutual decision from both parties after careful deliberation and amicable discussion. It has nothing to do with the rumors online nor does it have anything to do with outside influences. In the future, the two will continue to take their responsibility as parents to raise their child jointly and accompany him growing up.
With regards to this matter, we’ve briefly summed up the reasons for everyone and hope to avoid unnecessary misunderstandings or speculation that will arise from not knowing the situation that could cause a second damage to the two parties and their families. The two parties and their studios will no longer issue any responses regarding this matter. We reserve the right to take legal action against people creating malicious fabrications and rumors.
Finally, thank you for the friends who continue to show concern, support, love and trust for Ms. Zhao Liying and Mr. Feng Shaofeng. Wish them well in the future, to be safe and happy!

They did it with Grace 👏👏 ( they don’t need to explain it to anyone its between them ) they’ll will always be together no matter what so im ok with it
That’s really sad. They should have taken more time to know each other before getting married, have a child. Now the little boy will grow up in a broken family. Best wishes to the whole family.
Are you a man
I wonder if they got together bcos of the pregnancy, if that’s true I wonder if moral codes are a serious thing in China and getting pregnant out of wedlock is still down on, it was the same for YM now ZLY.
They got married around oct 2018 and her son was born in March 2019. I’m sure she got pregnant and he took responsibility. Kinda sad these celebrities are divorcing because of their busy schedules. It’s hard to balance life and career at the same time when you have to be far away from home and film dramas 24/7 for few months.
I believe if you really love someone, you would prioritize your work schedule, like one person taking a project while the other does not. It’s not like they don’t have money and they have to continue to work around the clock like us normal people. Marriage is a lot of work.
Sometimes work to people isn’t just about money, some people are driven by purpose and goals if such things are cut off it might affect them negatively. Pple like ZLY and YM have put in a lot for their careers and have worked very hard, everyone has their own priorities in life, so everyone should be accommodating of each other.
I’m sad for them but for a lot of people divorce is the right decision. I hope netizens don’t criticize them too harshly for this. It’s so personal. I wish them both the best for the future.
I totally agree with you here. I have personal friends who remained together for the kids but in the end everyone sufferred because the ambiance was terrible and the kids were affected. Evertyhing got better once they got divorced and their relationship improved……At least they made the right choice for them. Not for anyone else or netizens but for them both.
Divorce sounds so easy for celebrities…
At least they have decided to separate amicably than dragging this on and on for years and both ended up bitter and unhappy. Now that they are both ready to close the page and open a new chapter in their lives, I truly believe that they will be in better mindset. It is sad that they are separating but they are both human. I wish them both happiness and all the best and will continue to support. I hope netizens won’t be too harsh and be more understanding………Behind closed doors, we cannot know what goes on.
At least this time she didn’t buy an army to break weibo. Look at how nice and understanding the comments are here. Extremely rare.
in what incident did she hired an army to break weibo or who is the celebrity who hired?
Gosh, I would say I am not surprised. But it is still very sad…
I am not surprised!!! ZLY seems very independent and career-driven, nothing wrong with that.
At least they broke up on a good note :). Best of luck to them both.
She gained 160,000 fans a few hours after announcing the divorce. She lost many fans after the marriage announcment. First time I see people congratulating divorcees. When other actresses divorce, haters shamed them for being career driven and abandoning their children and family. Not sure where all the haters suddenly vanished to now, or how they can suddenly turn into better human beings and know how to be so understanding of career driven people when I thought they hate those type. What ever the case, hopefully we see these positive reactions for other actresses in the future too. Jk, obviously that won’t happen.
Probably b/c her fans never liked Feng Shaofeng. He’s got a reputation for getting in and out of relationships with his leading ladies. Her fans always felt she could do much better.
It’s actually 500,000. Even on international platforms, TSOML’s rating jumped higher after her divorce.
She got a reputation with almost all leading males too.
1. Forgot the dude’s name, when she played an extra she dated one of the leading actors.
2. Gao Ziqi – China’s national sport player and leading actor in New My Fair Princess.
3. Chen Xiao – One of Yumama’s rich boy, she cheated Gao Ziqi.
4. William Chan – International star, Charlene Choi’s boyfriend. Caught holding hands off screen and spent 3 HOURS on a kiss scene. Cheated on Chen Xiao, Chen Xiao married someone else and her fans cursed Chen Xiao.
5. Wallace Huo – Wallace is famous with actresses, it could be true/untrue but their rumors reached a point his studio had to publish a statement denying. He never had to do that with other actresses, not even Tang Yan, Michelle ye, Joe Chen, etc.
6. Others: He Jiong (Happy camp host), Huang Bin (Manager), Kris Wu
Wow I did not know all these! Chen Xiao is such a hottie!
THIS IS NOT TRUE! First of all, she gained massive followers on her Weibo acct only. Second, ZLY was been praised on how she handled her divorced though it was so sudden cause the two eventually spotted together recently so despite having the divorce rumors people didn’t think that they’re already a divorced couple
All the guys you have mentioned, Zhao Liying had no confirmed things about them!!! I DONT KNOW WHERE DID YOU GET THIS BUT IT’S A TOTAL BULLSHIT. They’re just merely good friends. Google them up if you can search for anything. Only Feng Shaofeng turned out to be true on everything about dating, marriage, pregnancy, and divorce on her.
On the contrary part, Feng Shaofeng is the one who’s dating every female leads he had in his drama from Yang Mi, Nini, and Lin Yun and he’s the one who has “CHEATING ALLEGATIONS” and you can search this up.
Feng Shaofeng dating rumors with Yang Mi
Feng Shaofeng dating Nini
Feng Shaofeng dating Lin Yun
You’re spreading and spouting nonsense!
MAMA MARIA you have very double standards. You expect that all the FSF cheating allegations are true but none of ZLY is true?
It’s obvious ZLY’s scandals are much more embarrassing. she went to a honeymoon destination for sweet couples, the man she was with was a MARRIED man. You need to search that up. At least FSF dated unmarried women. That man is a ceo, even his mother said ZLY is her daughter-in-law. Who knows how many men ZLY had married? They had photos and receipts as proofs. ZLY is good at lying, she said is was afraid of standing next to any man after that scandal. But that ceo also showed up at the shootings of Qing Yun Zhi and help out on set. She expects people like you to think that’s not what a boyfriend is? Her IQ and yours are unbelievable. When she got pregnant, she also did the embarrassing split to lie to everyone. What you’re saying makes you sound very pathetic. All the crew members in My Fair Princess admitted she dated Gao Ziqi. The Chen Xiao rumor, who knows if she secretly married him and he got fed up with her wanting to have abortion and hide everything? Sun Yaoqi already revealed they moved in together, it’s why she got kicked out from acting forever. Chen Xiao refused to wed ZLY for another woman, her fans blame him for cheating but ZLY was the one with rumors with William Chan when she was still dating Chen Xiao.
BTW about FSF and YM, they were never afraid of being lovey dovey together in public but they also made it very clear they were not dating. Contrary to FSF and ZLY, they were afraid to interact in public and when asked they didn’t have any gut to deny or admit. Unlike YM, she made it crystal clear she was not dating FSF. Not long after, YM already proudly announced to the world she was dating Hawick Lau and FSF did the same with his ex girlfriend. Your accusations towards FSF are the false stuff. FSF and YM never dated but were good friends, and at most he only said he liked her. Who’s spouting and spreading nonsense? I wonder if you did your research but purposely blame FSF.
I too get very annoyed at unproven rumours. It is very damaging for any female…such a nasty act.
XENA, You’re obviously a zhao liying hater, you believed on zhao liyings rumors and defending feng shaofeng rumors. How pathetic and unfair is that.
I just simply refuted all those rumors you said about her and here you are saying it was really a real deal and explaining it with a long paragraph form.
And the way I noted it here as
1) Feng Shaofeng dating rumors with Yang Mi – I’ve added RUMORS to imply that thing was never been confirmed
2) Feng Shaofeng dating Nini – PROVEN
3) Feng Shaofeng dating Lin Yun – PROVEN
Now, Go and forever hate Zhao Liying, Hate her for being a strong independent woman and who doesn’t need a man to rely on.
Shotgun weddings are almost always a bad idea. But this is 2021, if they felt obligated to give it a go for the sake of the baby and responsibly call it quits when it didn’t work out then more power to them. Nothing shameful about divorce. What’s shameful is actually staying in a marriage when you are miserable. Best wishes to their co-parenting.
+1 totally agree with you here. Just wish her luck! Nobody will know what goe son behind closed doors anyways. Celebs are human too.
Couples who display their personal lives to the public predictably have shorter-lived relationships.
I never believed that the wedding was the real deal. ZLY must look down on her fans IQ and right now I think it’s justified. I mean for people to actually believe all that bullshit when it’s as clear as day that it was all for show. Any logical person would be able to put that together if they sat down to think about it. And yet here all her water army battalions are trying to put all the blame on the other party as usual, to save her ass when in truth no one is actually guilty but are all playing a farce. Are we really supposed to be giving condolences when she can gains more in scandals. It should be “congratulations, hey your fans are eating your shit real good, bet that makes you happier, lol”.
Why do celebrities have kids when they have no time to take care of them ? Just focus on your career if that’s the most important goal in your life. I feel sorry for the kids in these situations.
its really funny to say that zhao liying would hire a water army here when in fact thats clearly an absurd thing you know (if she’s doing it internationally and well I wont be surprised if she’ll do it domestically though) and besides in the first place her fans and even non-fans are not optimistic with zly and fsf as a couple so perhaps thats why she gained more fans and earned some positive reaction into her divorce announcement
