Since Nicholas Tse (謝霆鋒) and Cecilia Cheung (張栢芝) signed divorce papers last August, frequent speculations arose that the pair were headed towards a reconciliation. During last year’s divorce crisis, Nicholas stated that he still loved Cecilia very much, but did not know how their marriage could persevere. It was rumored that Cecilia still loved Nicholas very much, even taking a hiatus from acting to spend more time with him. Their strongest bond was found in their two young sons, Lucas and Quintus. In March, Nicholas even slept over in Cecilia’s house for 4 nights!
At the end of last year, Nicholas requested a 6-month vacation from EEG. Taking a break from filming movies and mainland television dramas, Nicholas has been spending more time with his sons, 4-year-old Lucas and soon-to-be 2-year-old Quintus. He reduced time spent drinking and playing video games, taking on healthier hobbies such as cooking.
In February, Nicholas slept over one night at Cecilia’s house, when she relocated temporarily to a residence one street across from his house in the Admiralty district. According to Ming Pao Weekly, Nicholas slept over four nights at Cecilia’s new house. Turning off his cell phone completely, Nicholas did not wish to be disturbed while spending time with his family. Each time Nicholas visited his sons, Lucas begged Nicholas to stay and sleep with him.
Nicholas Tse Admits Future is Unpredictable
Yesterday, Nicholas, Cecilia and Quintus attended Lucas’ performance at his primary school. It was the first time that the family of four were spotted publicly together since their divorce filing. Hacken Lee (李克勤) and Emily Lo (盧淑儀) were also at the performance, cheering their son, Ryan, who attended the same school as Lucas.
In the past, when Nicholas was asked whether he would reconcile with Cecilia, he said, “It’s impossible!”
However, Nicholas softened his tune recently and was very happy. Asked about reconciling with Cecilia, Nicholas said, “No. We have the same wishes in wanting the best for our sons. We no longer argue and get along fine with each other. We were immature in the past. Perhaps we will become more mature in the future and know how to get along. Reconciling is not entirely without possibility.”
Cecilia Takes Hiatus to Spend More Time With Nicholas
Nicholas and Cecilia had a very public, and at times very ugly, divorce last year in which Cecilia publicly blasted Nicholas as being an irresponsible father with a video game addiction. She even claimed that Nicholas had fed the media the inside scoop regarding their marriage crisis and harmed her public image negatively.
After the anger settled down, Cecilia has grown more mature in handling herself. Although Nicholas and Cecilia filed divorce papers last year, the court has not officially approved their divorce yet. Allegedly, Cecilia still loved Nicholas very much and hoped to reconcile their relationship.
In January, Cecilia announced that she will take a hiatus from acting to spend more time with her sons. It was speculated that she had done so to coincide with Nicholas’ vacation time frame, wishing to spend more time with him to save their relationship. Furthermore, Cecilia’s movies last year performed poorly at the box office; thus, she re-prioritized her family first.
Moving into her $128 million HKD luxury home recently, Cecilia allegedly incorporated feng shui elements to promote positive energy for nurturing love between Nicholas and herself. The pair got along well with each other in recent months. Cecilia also lowered her expectations towards Nicholas, thus giving him less anxiety in her presence.

Jayne: Time is of essence in Cecilia and Nicholas’ reconciliation. Once the heart moves on, it is difficult to capture again. If Cecilia loved Nicholas, it was the right thing to do to take time off to spend with each other. They should have done so last year at the height of their marital problems. Gone away to a couples retreat on some remote island to spend with each other to sort out their priorities.
