For most of the past weekend, the internet was gripped by Wang Leehom and Lee Jinglei’s bombshell-dropping, endless mudslinging divorce saga, which also involved his parents, Vivian Hsu and Singaporean pop star Yumi Bai.
It seems Leehom has finally decided to put an end to all the fighting with his latest announcement, which was posted today (Dec 20) at around noon.
“After thinking about it, [I realised that] men should be the ones bearing full responsibility. I will no longer explain nor defend myself. Not managing my marriage, causing trouble to my family and not portraying the right image as an idol to the public are all my fault,” he wrote.
“I’d like to solemnly apologise to my parents, Jinglei and our children. Arguing about the past is meaningless since we’re now divorced. From today, I’ll pay attention to my words and actions along with taking on the responsibility of a father, son and public figure. Financially, I’ll do my best to look after Jinglei and our kids.”
They have three children together: daughters Jiali, seven, Jiana, five, and son Jiayao, three.
He continued, “I’m prepared to take a break from work and spend more time with my parents and children to make up for the damage that has been caused. Jinglei, we still have to look after and bring up our three kids together, [so I’ll] transfer the house that you’re living in to you. I will bear the cost of raising and educating the kids. This matter was definitely caused by me not handling it well. Once again, I apologise to everyone.”
