Only two weeks in and it’s already been a whirlwind December for Wang Baoqiang (王宝强) and his ex-wife Ma Rong (马蓉).
On December 2, a physical altercation erupted between Wang Baoqiang and Ma Rong at Wang’s residence. Police were involved, and Ma Rong was also admitted to the hospital for her injuries. The actress claimed that her fight with the Blind Shaft <盲井> star was over their children, and when they couldn’t reach a civil agreement, Wang started beating her along with “four or five” others. Wang, on the other hand, told a different story—Ma suddenly arrived at his residence holding a pair of scissors, and the police had to take her down.
Ma has since released a formal statement saying that she reserves the right to take legal action against false reports and rumors.
For now, netizens appear to be siding with Wang, as Ma was seen holding an object that resembled a pair of scissors in leaked CCTV footage. However, a close friend of Ma’s—known as “Fang Jie”—released more photo evidence of Ma’s severe injuries, and denounced Wang for his violence.
“Ma Rong’s injuries are actually much worse than the photo she released before,” said Fang Jie. “And you are all calling it fake? Her face is ruined now, and if Wang Baoqiang doesn’t get jailed, then where is the law? Where are the human rights?”
In the photos Fang Jie shared, Ma is covered with bruises all over her body, including the face and back.
Fang Jie also revealed that Wang’s current girlfriend is a model known by the surname Feng, who is also the mother of a three-year-old child. She accused Wang of adultery, saying that the child was born when Wang and Ma were still married.
