After two weeks of silence, Lee Jinglei (李靚蕾) updated her social account with a thousand-word post about Leehom Wang (王力宏) barging into their Taipei apartment with three men, demanding her to turn off the CCTV, and frightening the children with loud banging on the door.
After she claimed that she forbade them from entering the house out of fear for her personal safety, the singer then retaliated that her imagination had been “overactive”, and said he was merely listening to the lawyer’s advice not to return home by himself.
Netizens’ Mixed Reactions
Harping on the topic, Taiwanese media ran reports on the reasons “why Leehom dared not return home by himself”. According to the reports, netizens suspect that Leehom did not return to his Wujiang apartment on his own, as Lee Jinglei’s exposé-style attacks on him has made him lose complete trust in his estranged wife.
Due to the mistrust, he has even opted to change the mobile number he has been using all these years. As for why he chose to turn up to visit the children with three other men, it was because he wanted an external party to be a witness, in the event that Lee makes any unexpected move.
With the hashtag #WhyLeehomWangDaredNotGoHomeAlone rising quickly to first place on Chinese platform Weibo, netizens’ fervent discussions were aroused. Some who spoke up for Leehom commented “Now, really pity Leehom, such a poor thing”, “Anyone who is alone will not dare to enter the home”. However, there were also those who felt that the mandopop singer’s reasoning is near ludicrous, as they commented, “Shouldn’t you rather have the CCTV on if you’re afraid?” and “Anyone alone will not dare to open the door given that you’re barging in with three men,”
