Since Yang Mi (楊冪) and Hawick Lau’s (劉愷威) five-year marriage ended in 2018, their daughter Noemie now lives in Hong Kong mostly under the care of her paternal grandparents. Due to the pandemic and Yang Mi’s busy work schedule, the actress rarely travelled to Hong Kong to visit her daughter which made netizens criticize Yang Mi for being an absent mother. However, with Hawick entering a serious new relationship, Yang Mi is reportedly fighting for Noemie’s custody.
After visiting Hong Kong in March, Yang Mi allegedly made many visits last month in preparation for the custody battle. It is reported that she has spent 540 million Hong Kong dollars in preparation for the fight.
Yang Mi apparently had wanted to bring Noemie back to China four years ago, but had to delay her plans due to the pandemic. It is also rumored that Hawick’s intentions to marry his new girlfriend Xiaofeng Li (李曉峰) worried Yang Mi, who did not want Noemie to be taken care of by a new stepmother.
Unwilling to give up custody, Hawick was seen with Noemie on vacation in Canada in July. It is suspected that he wanted to change Noemie’s citizenship, but these remain unconfirmed rumors at the moment.
