Why Janice Man and Angelababy Drifted Apart
In their first couple years of debut, Janice Man (文詠珊) and Angelababy were inseparable. The model-turned-actresses debuted together, matured together, and made the decision to pursue the lucrative Hong Kong film industry together. However, circumstances pulled them apart; JM and Baby are no longer as close as they used to be.
JM and Baby both debuted in 2004 as pseudo models for their respective agencies. Though the media enjoyed pitting them against each other, JM and Baby’s friendship remained solid. They even co-created a fashion brand together, CHOICE.
But after venturing into the film industry and embarking in their own solo careers, that friendship turned into rivalry. The negative rumors that came their way deepened the crack even further, to the point where JM wasn’t even invited to Baby and Huang Xiaoming’s (黃曉明) wedding of the century.
But even if that close sisterhood is no longer there, JM said she does not regret meeting Baby. In an interview with the Chinese press, JM said, “The misreporting by the media has really created many misunderstandings between us. These reports can really hurt you.”
JM stressed that it is normal for friends to gradually drift apart over the years. It is a normal way of life. “But no matter what,” said JM, “I extremely cherish the memories I have with Baby. I will always have her in my blessings. I cherish all the friends who have appeared in my life. I have nothing to hide, and I will not care how other people write about me.”
