After news of Leehom Wang’s (王力宏) divorce with Lee Jinglei (李靚蕾), the latter released a bombshell-laden Instagram post on December 17, in which she alleges his multiple infidelities complete with sordid details, and described her tough emotional journey through dating and marriage with the famed singer. Besides having to ink pre-nuptials, she also revealed that Leehom has a habit of soliciting prostitutes, apart from having “sex partners in every city”.
“Be With the Right Person”
The 35-year-old, who is 10 years younger than the pop star, had kept a low profile throughout the eight years of marriage. Following the divorce from Leehom, she dropped a post about the father of her children, “Hope you can face yourself truthfully, ignore worldly opinions and be with the right person”. Reading beneath her superficial meaning, Jinglei’s words seemed to hint at Leehom’s bisexual tendencies. Suspected of being homosexual before he got married, Leehom had once been romantically tied to disgraced Chinese pianist, former “Piano Prince” Li Yundi (李雲迪), but the rumors gradually subsided after he got married and had kids.
With his ex-wife’s carefully crafted message, netizens are interpreting her words as cleverly unveiling Leehom’s bisexuality. In her post, she also mentioned, “Your dance teacher “friend” sent you a message saying he feels very sad (as he) thought you two were together”. Written in traditional Chinese, she had used the male pronoun, which led readers to conclude that the dance teacher in question is male. Based on these two lines, most netizens are already convinced of Lee Jinglei’s intention to spill about Leehom’s bisexual orientation, with some commenting, “cheating on your wife, and with both men and women is really vile.”
