Leehom Wang’s (王力宏) image crashed when his ex-wife Lee Jinglei (李靚蕾) revealed that he is a serial cheater in their eight-year marriage. The singer was accused of having multiple affairs, including with a married woman suspected to be Taiwanese actress Vivian Hsu (徐若瑄). After Vivian issued three statements with little impact, her husband stepped forward to defend her over the controversy.
In her social media posts, Vivian stated, “I did not intrude in Wang and Lee’s marriage, and did not have any secret meetups.” She called the singer to step forward to explain the situation, but Leehom announced temporarily withdrawing from the entertainment industry. Although he apologized for not “managing this marriage properly” and disappointing his family and fans, he did not explicitly clarify for Vivian.
Jinglei’s unexpected post on December 21 again brought Vivian back into the spotlight. When gossip spread that Leehom was involved in a foursome, which implicated Taiwanese stars, Blackie Chen (陳建州) and Christine Fan (范瑋琪), Jinglei clarified upon the couple’s request, “As far as I know, Blackie Chen and Christine Fan did not have any improper relationships with Mr. Wang.” Many speculated that Jinglei purposely excluded Vivian from her post to allude to her infidelity.
Vivian’s Husband Speaks Out
For days, Vivian’s husband Sean Lee (李雲峰) remained silent throughout the controversy. On December 23, his law firm issued a statement on his behalf. Although he is sorry to hear about Leehom and Jinglei’s divorce, Sean is most heartbroken to see these accusations directed at his wife. He stated the need to stand up for his wife, as these rumors have heavily impacted her mental health and their family. He hopes that the cyberbullying will stop, and his wife would not be slandered any further.
“I am not a public figure, but as Vivian’s other half, it is my responsibility to stand up for her. I know her, so I trust her. All these accusations need to come to an end. I will not let people hurt my wife and my family. Thank you for everyone’s support and care,” Sean stated.
It is understood that Vivian had 11 endorsements on hand, working with home electronics, mobile game, real estate, eyewear, and more brands. However, the eyewear brand had quietly dropped its collaboration with Vivian, but it remains to be seen whether her remaining endorsement contracts will stay intact.
