Xiaxue And Husband Announce Divorce After 17 Years Together

Social media queen Wendy Cheng aka Xiaxue, 38, revealed on Instagram today (Apr 5) that she and her husband, American engineer Mike Sayre, have split. 

Xiaxue and Mike, who was living in the US then, met online and dated for more than three years before tying the knot in 2010. Their relationship was likened to a fairytale for everyone who grew up in that era of online dating.

They have a 10-year-old son Dashiel. 

In Xiaxue’s post, she wrote that she and Mike “have decided, mutually and amicably, to end [their] marriage” after 17 years together.

She went on to reveal that they have “actually been separated for a long time now”. 

Saying that divorce was not an easy decision to make, she added: “This may not be the fairytale ending that everyone wishes for, but 17 years is a long time and we had a good run with loads of love, happiness and memories we formed together. Unfortunately nothing lasts forever.”

Xiaxue also said both her and Mike will now focus on co-parenting their son. 

“To my ex husband, my partner in crime all these years and the father of my child, I wish you nothing but happiness for your future. Despite things ending this way, I never regretted picking you,” she wrote to Mike.

She ended her message by addressing her long-time followers, saying that she’s “sorry that [her] love story has come to an end”. 

“During this time, I know I sound cliched, but we would like to seek some privacy. Separation is difficult, but it’s so much worse when you have to tell it to so many people — about a decision that technically has nothing to do with them,” she wrote. 

The last time Mike appeared on Xiaxue’s IG feed was in March 2021 when she posted a family photo from Dashiel’s 8th birthday celebration.
