Married in 2015, Zhang Ziyi (章子怡) and her husband Wang Feng (汪峰) always appeared to have an affectionate marriage. They even peeled back layers of their marriage for all to see in reality show Viva La Romance <妻子的浪漫旅行>. Besides caring for their two children, Ziyi was also an involved stepmother to Wang Feng’s teenage daughter from a previous marriage. Despite the image of the perfect family, Ziyi and Wang Feng announced their divorce today.
A Chinese media outlet dropped the explosive news that “Wang Feng and Zhang Ziyi got divorced. Wang Feng will keep custody of their daughter while Zhang Ziyi will keep their son.” The headline quickly became a hot search topic and amassed 220 million views within two hours on Weibo.
Zhang Ziyi and Wang Feng issued simultaneous divorce statements at the same time, confirming their marriage has indeed ended. They wrote, “Thank you everyone for your continued concern and support for Brother Feng and I. After eight years of marriage, we decided to dissolve our marriage after careful consideration and discussion. We will treat each other as family in raising our children together and accompanying them while growing up. We will remain as the most trusted parents of our children.”
The ex-couple said the divorce was reached as “a mutual decision by two adults” under amicable terms, without any wrongdoing or “betrayal” from either party.
