The media had speculated that Vicki Zhao Wei would retire from acting after giving birth to her daughter in April 2010 to enjoy married life with husband, Huang Yaulong in Singapore . However, Vicki made an appearance at the Shanghai International Film Festival two months immediately after giving birth. Rumors claim that Vicki’s urgency in returning to work was due to a troubled marriage. Allegedly, Vicki complained to close friends about getting married and having a baby within a short span of time. Her friends speculated that Vicki, who has been married for over one year, may get a divorce within the next six months.
After dating Huang Yaulong, whose net worth is valued at $400 million (Yuan) for one year, Vicki got married in 2008. Allegedly, the couple did not have a deep mutual understanding, leading to frequent arguments after marriage. Huang Yaulong was also rumored with Zhang Ziyi earlier, which may have affected his marriage. Vicki may not get along well with her in-laws either. Vicki’s good friend revealed that her husband is often caught in the middle when Vicki has a dispute with her mother-in-law.
Recently, Vicki has been working on her directorial debut, Love in Penghu Bay <爱在澎湖湾>, in Beijing and did not spend much time with her husband and daughter in Singapore . According to Vicki’s good friend, Vicki will give more time to observe the marriage. If the marriage does not improve, Vicki will prepare mentally for the possibility of divorce. She intends to fight for the custody of her daughter. In order to provide the best environment for her daughter, money would be a necessity. Thus, Vicki returned to work within two months after giving birth.
Regarding Vicki’s marital problems, her manager Chen Rong said, “I never heard of this, so I will not respond to the question. But I can say that they are all doing well.” (With Vicki’s busy schedule, how does she care for her daughter?) “Sorry, I will only respond to questions regarding Vicki’s work.”
Jayne: A new baby in any marriage is a big stress factor. Vicki’s eagerness to return to work has lead to speculations about her marriage; hopefully they are not true!
