Are Red Flags in Michelle Chen and Chen Xiao’s Marriage?

Michelle Chen (陳妍希) and her husband Chen Xiao (陳曉) met while filming The Return of the Condor Heroes <神鵰俠侶> in 2014. They got married in 2016 and welcomed their son shortly afterward. With Michelle scaling back her work, many thought the couple was happily married but rumors of marital discord have been spreading. Their eighth wedding anniversary is in July but it is said Chen Xiao had filed for divorce at the end of last year.

A source disclosed Chen Xiao has moved out from their home and even changed his phone number so Michelle could not reach him. She has only been able to reach him through work associates.

There are signs of a cooling relationship between Michelle and Chen Xiao. The pair did not have any interaction on social media in the last half a year. In the past Michelle would bring their son to visit Chen Xiao while he was filming, but she did not do so for his latest drama. It is said they have already deleted all posts related to each other. Netizens also discovered they are no longer wearing their wedding rings.

It is said that Michelle got involved with her Fly Me to the Moon <但願人長久> costar Peng Guangying (彭冠英) as they appeared to be very close on the filming set. Although a third party has entered their relationship, Michelle is still very much in love with Chen Xiao and allegedly tried to save their relationship.

Michelle had wanted to hold her birthday party in Beijing, but changed it to Shanghai since Chen Xiao is currently working there. She also accommodated his schedule and decided to hold the party one day earlier. Although it was a rare occasion for their family of three to be together, one could still see there was tension and distance between Chen Xiao and Michelle. Netizens stated that they looked exactly like the photo Zhang Ziyi (章子怡) and Wang Feng (汪峰) took before they announced their divorce.

Chen Xiao also remained silent on social media when it was Michelle’s birthday, which was at odds with his behavior last year. The pair has not replied to the rumors, but Michelle appeared to be in good spirits and shared a birthday post with good friend Joey Yung (容祖兒).
