There is speculation that Guli Nazha (古力娜扎) initiated the breakup with Hans Zhang (张翰), who she started dating in 2014.
In a statement released several days ago, the Chinese actors announced through their respective studios that they have split, and have been apart since October. The announcement came unexpectedly, as the couple still seemed very much together from paparazzi photos that were shot back in September.
Although the couple stated in their announcement that it was a peaceful breakup, there is speculation that it was Guli Nazha who had ended the relationship. Their breakup had supposedly occurred in mid-October, but Hans showed no signs of being amidst a breakup when he angrily responded to Guli Nazha’s anti-fans on Weibo back in early October.
“Please respect me and respect the person I love,” wrote Hans. “If you yell at her, you’re yelling at me too.” During the filming of the third season of Divas Hit the Road <花儿与少年>, Hans even told the production crew: “Please take care of our little princess for me!”
The couple were even rumored to have been heading for marriage. A netizen claimed that Hans had booked a wedding venue, but he canceled the reservation soon after splitting with Guli Nazha.
But whether or not it was really Guli Nazha who ended the relationship, the reason behind the breakup shouldn’t be a surprise—the couple do not envision the same future. Hans have always been a very traditional man, and he perhaps would have preferred his wife to stay at home to take care of the family. Guli Nazha, whose popularity have risen in recent years, is very focused on her career.
