Ady An and Nathan Lee Unveil Truth about Breakup
Earlier this year, it was rumored that Taiwanese actress Ady An (安以軒) and Korean-American singer/actor Nathan Lee (李承炫) had broken off their secret relationship after Ady found out that Nathan was cheating on her with mainland Chinese actress Stephy Qi (戚薇). Although the rumor was never confirmed, many netizens accused Nathan of being unfaithful and of exploiting his relationship with Ady to further his career. On July 15, Nathan posted a long explanation on his Tencent Weibo, claiming that their breakup was due to differences in personalities and did not concern anyone else.
Because Nathan’s Chinese skills are limited, he had no choice but to write the Weibo post in English. In the post, he revealed that he and Ady, whom he referred to as “Ms. An,” had dated for two years, but had agreed to an amicable breakup on November 14, 2012.
“Throughout the two years, I realized that we had too many differences in personality, life style, and perspective toward other matters,” Nathan wrote. “And it is because of these reasons, the relationship was not working out. The breakup was of mutual agreement. Not because as was reported in the news saying, “I was CHEATING!” Our breakup had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with any other person.”
Nathan shared that he and Ady had kept their relationship secret in order to protect their privacy. They had planned to go public when his career was more stable. However, after they broke up, the constant gossip and accusations of cheating, which Nathan said were “blown out of proportion,” caused him to lose his patience.
“Does there always have to be a ‘third person’ to make the story more interesting?” he fumed. “I can SWEAR to GOD that from the day Ms. An and I were together, I have NEVER told any ‘media, press, reporters’ regarding the details of our relationship, as well as our breakup. Today is the FIRST and hopefully, will be the LAST time I discuss this issue!”
Despite his frustration, Nathan made sure to thank Ady for her help, as well as “the time and experience [they] had.” He also apologized to her for his stubbornness and wished her luck with her career and pursuit of happiness.
In response to Nathan’s post, Ady wrote on her own Weibo: “After waking up, you can’t go back to yesterday again. After investing in the past, there are no regrets in the present. I’m grateful for pain that lets me grow. You still have to walk forward, tranquil and calm. I will no longer be in your future, but I wish you well.”
