Annie Yi Reveals Reason Behind Her 2009 Divorce From Harlem Yu
The couple's son Harrison Yu, was just seven when the divorce happened.
But what exactly happened back then?
In a recent interview with Chinese host Chen Luyu, the 54-year-old actress, who's now married to Chinese actor Qin Hao, 44, opened up about why she split from Harlem.
Annie revealed that she thought she was going to feel a huge sense of security in her previous marriage, but unfortunately that did not happen because she wasn't able to get over the trauma that her own family had caused her.
It resulted in her hurting the people around her.
"I didn't prepare myself [for marriage] well. I was feeling very tensed the whole time," she admitted, adding that entering showbiz when she was only 18 had warped her mentally.
She pinned her hopes on Harlem to overcome all her problems, including her fear of love, the pain that was caused by her own family and even her past relationships.
Annie only realised years later that her way of thinking was flawed.
"Why should he [have to]? He's not a doctor, [he's] here to be in love and find a wife, why should [he] have to heal you?" she said.
Shortly after the interview, the phrase "Annie Yi Says Your Husband Is Not A Doctor" started to trend on Weibo.
