Johnny Huang Unable to Shake Off Controversial Past
Mysteriously absent from filming projects for nine months and often spotted wearing thick, loose jackets, Dilraba Dilmurat (迪麗熱巴) was speculated to be pregnant. Social media buzzed with claims that she was secretly pregnant with former costar Johnny Huang (黃景瑜), who had a controversial past even today.
The actor was previously said to be married once and filed for divorce with Wang Yuxin (王雨馨) in 2018. Despite Johnny paying Yuxin 50 million Chinese yuan, she was reportedly unhappy with the amount and continuously haggled for money and lashed out domestic violence claims.
Johnny tried concealing his past and initially denied having been married, but Wang Yuxin posted their marriage certificate on social media. Although many netizens were displeased with Johnny, they also speculated that Wang Yuxin only wanted to make money off Dilraba’s pregnancy rumors, as it was unreasonable to bring up her divorce after so many years.
While Johnny and Dilraba never publicly acknowledged their relationship, it was an open secret in the industry. Dilraba had allegedly changed her clothes while sharing a trailer with Johnny on their filming set. She was seen riding back to his apartment to spend the night as well. In candid photos, Dilraba was seen staring at Johnny with love in her eyes–she has never been seen with such open affection for another costar in the past.
Dilraba’s fans were not so thrilled over her relationship with Johnny due to his messy and complicated dating history. Although both have not responded to the pregnancy rumors, netizens speculate they were unable to make their relationship official because of Wang Yuxin.
