In 2017, Li Chen (李晨) has proposed to Fan Bingbing (范冰冰), but it was alleged that the actress’ tax fraud scandal last year postponed their wedding plans. Then it was reported that they would tie the knot in February 2019, but the news came and went with no signs of wedding bells. Rumors then claimed that Fan Bingbing may be pregnant. Despite the succession of good news, it came as a shock when the couple announced today that their four-year relationship has ended.
Fan Bingbing wrote, “A person may experience many different types of goodbyes in their lifetime. I am thankful for all that you have given me throughout our journey together, including love and support. We are no longer ‘us’, but we are still ‘we’.”
Li Chen followed suit and also expressed via social media, “Going from friends to lovers, and then going back to being friends. The shape of love can change, but the purest feelings between us has not. Our mutual trust and support will be forever. We are no longer ‘us’, but we will always be ‘we’.”
According to an insider, the couple had already broken up for more than several months. The couple came to a consensus and agreed to not go public with their breakup public until after Fan Bingbing’s tax evasion scandal blew over.
Fan Bingbing and Li Chen’s breakup announcement coincided with one of South Korea’s most beloved celebrity couples Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki’s divorce announcement today. Announcing their breakup after the Songs’ divorce, Fan Bingbing and Li Chen hoped to divert the public’s attention.
