Criticism for Leehom Wang’s Ex-wife Startsjessie tan
Leehom Wang’s (王力宏) image and career suffered a huge blow when his ex-wife, Lee Jinglei (李靚蕾), accused him of cheating and hiring sex workers. Recently, a netizen who claims to know Leehom’s staff member claimed that Jinglei was purely motivated by money in her actions.
Motivated by Money?
The netizen shared that Jinglei is very ambitious and extreme. Allegedly, Leehom is afraid of retaliating because of safety concerns towards his children. The post is clearly aimed at Jinglei, and may be warming up for Leehom’s fight back.
In preliminary drafts of their divorce agreement in 2016, Jinglei was only given a small alimony amount, which allegedly made her break down into tears on the spot. Later, when the pair signed a divorce agreement in New York, Jinglei received half of their joint assets, which were valued at US 23 million.
In her damning expose on social media in December, Jinglei revealed she wanted to continue living in Leehom’s condo in Taiwan to lessen disruption in their children’s lives. However, she accused the singer of only letting her “borrow” the space. When shock arose over his lack of generosity towards his ex-wife, Leehom announced gifting his multi-million condo to end their public spat.
Leehom’s Affairs Were Prior to Their Marriage?
The netizen claims that Jinglei does not actually have evidence of Leehom’s affairs. They went through numerous marriage counselors, but Jinglei did not bring up Leehom’s affairs. During their two-year divorce proceedings, she never submitted “cheating evidence” to the judge. If she did, she would have been able to gain a bigger split of his assets.
Jinglei alluded to Leehom cheating with BY2’s Yumi’s (孫雨), accusing the Singaporean singer of messaging a nude photo of herself. The netizen stated that the nude body in the WhatsApp display photo was not Yumi’s, although she happened to use a topless display photo. It was also pointed out that Yumi had instead messaged Leehom to invite him to film a promotional video for their album.
The netizen states that it is true that Leehom had an open attitude towards relationships, but this occurred before his marriage. As he is born in the United States and the dating culture is different among different countries, netizens did not feel it is fair to judge him. As Leehom’s schedule was so packed, he would not have had time for an affair.
After Leehom’s apology and announcement that he would temporarily leave the entertainment industry, Jinglei declared that she would end her public revelations over their divorce. When criticism over her character increased exponentially this week, Jinglei turned off the commenting feature on her social posts. Many are wondering if she will stand up for herself again and shoot down all the allegations.
