A power couple of the Chinese entertainment industry, Huang Xiaoming (黃曉明) and Angelababy (楊穎) tied the knot in an US$31 million-dollar wedding in 2015 . With their gorgeous looks and successful careers, their marriage was considered a fairytale romance in many eyes. Their picture-perfect union was made even more perfect after welcoming their son in 2017.
However, the couple has been barraged by rumors of trouble in their marriage in recent years. Although the couple denied marital discord on several occasions, and Angelababy was photographed wearing her 5-carat diamond ring, the couple officially announced their divorce through a joint statement on January 28 on Weibo.
Huang Xiaoming Invested in 60 Companies
While recent celebrity divorces have resulted in ugly slanders from both sides, Xiaoming and Angelababy reached a peaceful agreement to not split their assets. Managing their own finances independently since getting married, both already have more riches than they can spend in their lifetimes. Investing in 60 companies, Xiaoming’s net worth is estimated to be valued at 5 billion Chinese yuan (approximately US$786 million), while Angelababy has invested in three companies.
Possessing a Midas Touch, Xiaoming is extremely successful in his investments, which range from stocks, real estate, medical care, restaurants and golf resorts. “I am not the best one, but I am the one who works hardest,” the actor said.
Xiaoming’s status as an A-list actor in China did not come easily. It was through many years of hard work and fortunate opportunities that he slowly made his way from supporting actor to main lead. After his breakthrough in 2001’s The Prince of Han Dynasty <大漢天子>, he subsequently participated in many hit dramas such as My Fair Princess III <還珠格格3>; The Return of the Condor Heroes <神鵰俠侶>, Shang Hai Bund <新上海灘>, and Royal Tramp <鹿鼎記>. He gained further success through films Ip Man 2 (葉問) and American Dreams in China <中國合伙人>.
