Guess she had enough of being his beard already.
lol what do you mean?
Dong Zijian is gay. He used to live with his boyfriend before, but his mother disapproved of their relationship, so he chose to marry Sun Yi later.
There were hints of their broken marriage earlier this year.
Does this site no longer accept long comment or what? I can’t even write why their marriage broken down + the hints that SY gave since earlier this year.
Anyway, SY’s phone case had the sentences “stay away from men”, from a pic that she posted last month. That might be a hint on DZJ and why she chose to divorce him.

Wow…wasn’t expecting this…but they did marry quite young.
yeah. They are still young. So easy to get a divorce in China. I guess when there is nothing worth saving, it’s best to let each other go.
It’s easy to get a divorce in any country. Just that nowadays, marriage vows of sticking together through all adversities and changes in life till the end doesn’t mean much anymore. When the flush of romance fades, they take the easy route to bail out and say “they don’t love each other anymore”. Especially when both parties are celebrities, with the high pressures and time demands of their jobs, it is inevitable that one party’s career has to take a back seat or a slower pace for the sake of the child and family. And if neither party is willing, then the fights and resentment and jealousy will start.
