After years of marital woes, actor Vanness Wu (吳建豪) and Singaporean heiress Arissa Cheo (石貞善) are officially ending their five-year marriage. Since early this year, reports surfaced that Vanness has finally given up on the relationship and asked for divorce several times. However, Arissa had refused to sign the divorce papers.
Finally coming to terms with the ending of her marriage, Arissa issued a statement through her lawyer confirming the divorce. Her lawyer, Ms Foo Siew Fong, stated on Arissa’s behalf, “My client does not believe in divorce but at this point she is left with no other alternative. She has worked hard for this marriage but given the unhappy state of affairs, she has decided to end it as she no longer wishes to continue to live in hurt and pain.”
Before tying the knot in 2013, Vanness and Arissa have been in an on-and-off again relationship for seven years, giving them ample opportunity to establish a strong foundation. Soon after their marriage, however, the couple fell into a vicious cycle of constant quarrels and often aired their dirty laundry on social media.
It was reported that the couple’s marital issues were due to their clashing personalities. The domestic, married life apparently did not suit Arissa’s alleged wild personality and partying habits. Vanness’ good friends revealed, “Arissa’s personality has always been more open. She enjoys partying through the night. Her life habits are incompatible with Vanness’. In the end, they separated. This doesn’t come as a surprise!”
