On December 30, a Chinese paparazzi source revealed the alleged secret affair between Chinese actress Li Xiaolu (李小璐) and rapper PG One, star of The Rap of China <中国有嘻哈>. Li Xiaolu is the wife of fellow actor Jia Nailiang (贾乃亮), and the couple have been married since 2012. They have one daughter Jelena, also known as Tian Xin.
A week ago, Chinese paparazzi published photo and video evidence of Li Xiaolu spending the night at PG One’s home. The video started with the pair eating dinner together, followed by Li Xiaolu and PG One boarding a car together that was headed towards PG One’s home. Li Xiaolu held onto PG One’s arm as they walked into the apartment complex.
Li Xiaolu did not leave PG One’s home until the next morning. They walked a few streets down to where Li Xiaolu parked her car. They drove towards the direction of Li Xiaolu’s home, but about halfway there, PG One got out of the car to get into a different car.
Jia Nailiang Asks for Privacy
After a week of silence, Jia Nailiang finally posted his own lengthy response in regard to his wife’s alleged affair. He shared his response on Weibo on January 6.
“Only a week has passed, but it felt like a century,” he wrote. “I really do not like to be an inconvenience to others, but my recent family matters have started to get in the way of people I care about!”
Jia Nailiang confessed that the reports and rumors surrounding his wife’s alleged affair had been “uncomfortable” for him; it was to the point where he felt like he would soon be unable to “hear his own heartbeat.” He went on to say that he felt like a “walking zombie” leaving work every day, but for his family, he had to clench his jaw to brave through the storm.
“Now I’m being labeled with the term that many men hate to be associated with—the green hat! Xiaolu, as a mother for her child, is being labeled as one who doesn’t care about her family! My precious daughter has become the sacrifice of a marriage! You may not be able to see this, but such gossip has affected my in-laws and my parents. They are afraid to leave the house, and they have all fallen ill. Tian Xin is sick with a fever, and through our video chat, she smiled and cried telling me how much she missed me! Do you guys know how I felt then? My heart was crying blood.”
Jia Nailiang expressed that as a public figure, he understands that his private life must be sacrificed. “I have no right to put the blame on anyone. When I see my family in pain, all I can do is blame myself. I am sorry to Tian Xin; your father has made you suffer through so much at such an innocent young age. I am sorry to my in-laws and my parents; you should be enjoying your time in the age of happiness, and not having to worry about your children.”
The actor did not explicitly confirm his wife’s infidelity, but his words seem to be implying that her affair with PG One is true. Jia Nailiang said, “I am [also] sorry to Lulu; perhaps I didn’t do well enough. I wanted to do my best to give the world’s best to you, but even after using all my power I was unable to balance my family and work. Now that I’ve said this, I’m getting flashbacks of the day I proposed, of the vows I made to Xiaolu, every word clear in my mind. I remembered seeing the helpless look on her eyes as I was in the delivery room with her, and in that moment, I vowed to give her a perfect fairytale ending. But in the end, that has become my biggest regret.”
Jia Nailiang ended his response with a plea for privacy. “Please leave use some space. No matter how the road looks in the future, please let us handle this ourselves. I also plea for everyone to stop hurting my family. I do believe in sunny days after the rain.”
