Zanilia Zhao Liying (赵丽颖) and William Feng Shaofeng’s (冯绍峰) shocking divorce sparked plenty of speculation over the true reason the ex-couple went splitsville. Most talk centered on tension between Zhao Liying and her mother-in-law, who requested the actress give up her career and that the couple have three children.
Disappointed in Mommy’s Boy?
Nicknamed “Queen of TV Ratings,” the career-minded actress had gotten married and became a mother at the peak of her popularity, proving how much she was willing to sacrifice for love. While the reason for divorce given by the former couple was that they spent more time apart than together, it was really because Zhao Liying felt that Feng Shaofeng’s mother interfered too much in their lives, according to tabloid gossip.
It is said that Zhao Liying’s mother-in-law had requested her to give up her career so the couple could have more children. This did not sit well with the actress, who felt that childbirth should be the couple’s decision and that her mother-in-law was crossing the line. This became a thorn which led to squabbles between both sides.
A filial son and mommy’s boy, Feng Shaofeng could not get his mother to change her thinking, causing Zhao Liying to be thoroughly disappointed in him, and this inherently planted the seeds of divorce.
