Former power couple Harlem Yu and Annie Yi surprised many with news of their divorce in 2009. They tied the knot in 2000 and welcomed their first and only child, Harrison, in 2002.

Both have since moved on from their split, with Annie tying the knot with Chinese actor Qin Hao in 2015, and Harlem marrying newscaster Jinny Chang in 2016.

For the first time, Annie talked about the reason for their split, blaming herself for the marriage breakdown. She confessed that she didn’t feel secure even while married as she was mentally trapped in her troubled childhood.

The 49-year-old explained that she started working at a young age, and after meeting Harlem, whom she knew was a dependable man, she felt like she “had grabbed onto a piece of driftwood in a vast ocean. I wanted him to take away all the pain that I had felt when I was younger, and all the confusion I had about the relationships within the industry.”

Annie let on that she gave Harlem a lot of stress about this, as she mused, “He’s not a doctor. He was someone I was supposed to have a relationship and get married to, why should he have had to fix all my problems as well?”

This caused problems in the marriage, as Annie said that it was because “I wasn’t wise enough”.
