In 2015, Michelle Ye (葉璇) announced that she was dating well-known fashion stylist, Mr. Xiao Mo (小默先生). The couple often shared sweet photos on social media and Michelle openly praised Mr. Xiao Mo. Despite wearing promise rings and Michelle even stating that she feels as though they are already married, the 39-year-old actress announced today that they have broken up after four years of dating.
The announcement came as a shock to fans, as Michelle had praised Mr. Xiao Mo incessantly during a recent interview. She acclaimed, “He is very worldly and is an intelligent man. He taught me a lot of things. We live together and he would get up earlier than me every day to make breakfast. Living together cohesively, I don’t mind letting him know that I love him. He has changed a lot for me. When he is with his friends, he doesn’t speak much. But in order to pursue me, he changed himself and became more talkative. He would always call and talk to me. I was very touched. Sometimes, when the weather is cold and I have to work early, he would get up earlier and make sure the water is warm for me to use.”
During the interview, the reporter had asked when the couple plan to tie the knot. The 39-year-old actress sweetly expressed that she already feels as though they are married and will walk the rest of their life’s journey together. “You may as well just consider me married. There’s no difference between us now and being married.”
The interview was conducted a little more than a week before the breakup announcement. The sudden turn of events utterly shocked everyone. However, the four-year relationship was not without its fair share of breakup rumors and drama.
In regards to the reason for their breakup, Michelle divulged that they split amicably due to the couple’s diverging paths and values in life.
