Dubbed as the prettiest concubine in Story of Yanxi Palace <延禧攻略>, Chinese actress Jenny Zhang Jiani (張嘉倪) regained her popularity after the drama aired. Although she witnessed a rise in her career, her marriage with wealthy husband Mai Chao (買超) hit a bump after seven years together. Divorce rumors surfaced last year when Mai Chao was reportedly cheating on Jenny with a university student, but the speculations were never fully confirmed and the flame eventually died down in the new year.
In 2019, Jenny and Mai Chao participated in the second season of reality show Viva La Romance <妻子的浪漫旅行>. Their romantic interactions were the envy of many viewers, as Mai Chao seemed to adore Jenny and spoiled her in their marriage.
Fast forward to September 2022, Mai Chao was photographed going back to his hotel room with a woman. Trying to curb the cheating rumors, Jenny’s agency responded, “Don’t spread rumors! Stop believing rumors! Jenny is currently focused on filming right now–please focus on her work instead!”
Jenny then subsequently posted a cryptic message on her personal account, “Loved and let go.” Upon making her post, her fans speculated that the actress is preparing for her split.
Although the rumors died down after several months, famous Chinese paparazzi, “Photography Liu” recently uploaded a serious of videos and clips of Mai Chao attending a friend’s gathering alone and returning to his “singlehood,” indicating the businessman and the mysterious woman have parted ways.
However, some netizens believe that Mai Chao’s singlehood meant his divorce with Jenny has been finalized, despite his Weibo description still stating” Jenny’s husband.” Many netizens pointed out the irony, mocking Mai Chao’s comment from years ago where he swore “to break both his legs” if he were to ever cheat in their marriage.
