Leehom Wang and Jinglei Lee’s Trial Sees Delayjessie tan
Since their divorce announcement in December 2021, Leehom Wang (王力宏) and Jinglei Lee’s (李靚蕾) have taken their public attacks on each other to court instead. While he sued for child visitation rights, Jinglei claimed Leehom cut off financial support.
Jinglei alleged that Leehom froze bank accounts, and did not cooperate with the sale of their joint real estate property which was against their divorce agreement. She also claimed that Leehom “was reluctant to pay even the most basic child support, and appealed to the New York court to make us pay for his legal fees.”
The divorce and ensuing cheating allegations cost Leehom’s career, as he was dropped by all brand endorsements. Since last December, he temporarily stepped away from his entertainment career and has not updated his social media in the past five months.
Fans Still Miss Leehom
On his 46th birthday on May 17, Leehom’s official Weibo account automatically issued a congratulatory message at 12:30 a.m. Although it was issued by the platform, the post amassed 140,000 comments and shares from his fans who promise to wait for his return.
His management company shared a message thanking everyone for their support, “Leehom is feeling emotional after seeing all the well wishes from his fans. His birthday wish is for his children to be healthy and happy, and for the trial to be over soon.”
Cautious that their public gestures may affect the outcome of their court case, Leehom and Jinglei have largely avoided social media controversies since their litigation started. Jinglei’s last update on social media was on Mother’s Day to share a handmade card from her children.
Since March, there has not been much progress in the litigation. The hearings barred the media in the courtroom, and details were not publicized to ensure the children’s privacy. Leehom’s management company stated that they have been working hard at accommodating and waiting for trial dates.
