Married for two years, Zanilia Zhao Liying (趙麗穎) and William Feng Shaofeng (馮紹峰) announced their divorce today. The news shocked many people, as the couple’s divorce happened just as suddenly as their marriage initially took place.
Meeting while filming 2016’s The Monkey King 3 <西遊記之女兒國>, Zhao Liying was spotted to have spent the night at Feng Shaofeng’s place on several occasions. However, due to their idol status, the duo denied their relationship.
In September 2018, Zhao Liying was seen with a baby bump and the couple got married one month later. Although some may feel that they had a flash wedding because of a surprise pregnancy, the couple seemed deeply in love as they welcomed the birth of their son.
In 2019, rumors swirled that Feng Shaofeng had an affair. After the actor denied the affair and threatened legal action, they continued sharing photos of each other regularly on social media. However, Feng Shaofeng admitted that he feels insecure about their marriage, and questioned whether Zhao Liying married him out of love or for other reasons.
With Feng Shaofeng and Zhao Liying both continuing filming projects despite having a young child at home, the family spent increasing less time together and drifted apart. Although their divorce announcement may seem sudden to outsiders, they agreed that separation is the best for them. Accompanying their announcement, the couple wrote, “The days are long. The past has been great. Hoping the future will be even better.”
Stressing that it was an amicable breakup, Feng Shaofeng and Zhao Liying have not yet responded to further media inquiries.
