Taiwanese Actor Devin Pan’s Ex-Wife Commits Suicide Half A Year After Their Divorce, Was Reportedly Heartbroken About The Split
The actor's ex-wife, who was a scriptwriter, had also accused Devin of forcing her to go for an abortion.
Taiwanese media reported on Wednesday (Jun 1) that the ex-wife of Taiwanese actor Devin Pan (潘綱大) has died from an apparent suicide.
In January this year, Devin, 26, who shot to fame after starring in Taiwanese movie Goddamned Asura, announced that he and his wife of two-and-a-half years, scriptwriter Cai Yunqin, had gotten a divorce in December 2021.
It was reported that Yunqin completely broke down when news of their split was made public. Shortly after, she took to IG to call him a "disgusting man who hurts you on purpose". She also accused Devin of forcing her to go for an abortion.
Devin, who had just finished military service at that time, hired a lawyer to put out a statement that denied the accusation.
He also expressed his wish to move on from the divorce and for life to return to normal.
In March, a distraught Yunqin was admitted into hospital. According to reports, she had trouble coping with the divorce and suffered an emotional break down.
She would document her stay on IG. “You’re welcome to guess when I will jump off the building,” she wrote in one caption.
She also posted a picture of her hospital bed along with a caption expressing just how much she missed Devin.
On May 19, Yunqin posted an old pic with Devin and captioned it with what read like a farewell message.
“Goodbye! [To] the one I love most,” she wrote.
Then, less than two weeks ago on May 21, Yunqin posted a selfie and this caption: “I want to continue living.”
She went radio silent after that, up until the news of her passing broke.
When asked about the tragedy, Devin’s representatives said: “Devin only found out about [Yunqin’s passing] after he was informed by her family. The first thing he did was head down to help with funeral matters. Devin and the family are all hurting and sad. We hope that everyone gives them some space.”
