Over the past few years, public opinion on Chinese stars Huang Xiaoming and Angelababy’s marriage has see-sawed wildly between “they are still together” and “they are definitely divorced”. These theories are often gleaned from all sorts of ‘clues’, from their outfits to condolence wreaths to the details of a lawsuit.
The divorce speculation intensified when Angelababy shared a post hinting at the fact that she isn’t celebrating Valentine’s Day this year. “I heard that today is a western festival,” she wrote on February 14. “Good thing I’m a southerner.”
Netizens immediately took it as a hint that she and Xiaoming, who have a four-year-old son together, have ended their relationship for real and that Angelababy was indirectly declaring that she is single again.
