“We are fine, don’t worry. What happened last time was purely a misunderstanding” said Barbie Hsu’s husband Wang Xiaofei. He is of course referring to his wife’s sudden announcement a few months ago when she said she was filing for divorce after ten years of marriage. While the news shocked everyone, what was truly confusing about their situation was Wang Xiaofei’s reaction. According to him, he was caught unawares that his wife was divorcing him. Likewise, both Barbie’s mum and her manager said that the couple simply had a tiff (as all couples do) and that the Taiwanese actress’ divorce announcement was probably just a knee jerk reaction to her anger. With both parties saying different things, whether the couple have indeed separated remains a mystery. Reading between the lines from Wang Xiaofei’s recent comment however, it appears all might be well.
Popping into Douyin (Tiktok’s sister app) recently to host a live stream of himself whilst quarantining in Taiwan, Wang Xiaofei answered the question foremost in everyone’s minds: have they or haven’t they ended their marriage. Wang Xiaofei confirmed that they are fine and that what happened before was just a misunderstanding on both their parts. As he had time recently, he has flown to Taiwan to see his wife and kids. He also said that this is actually his fourth time to be in isolation this year.
Previously, it is said that Wang Xiaofei’s strongly worded rant about the vaccine situation in Taiwan was what led to the couple’s big fight. When news of their divorce spread like wildfire however, he took to social media to say that “because I was really worried about my family, I said some bad things yesterday. During the epidemic, it is indeed easy to get emotional, and I hope my family can be healthy and safe.”
