21 Jun – Both Taiwanese singer Vanness Wu and Singaporean heiress Arissa Cheo seemed unaffected by their recent divorce, as they go on to live their separate lives amid reports about the separation.
As reported on Apple Daily, the singer who kept mum about the divorce, has been seen out and about since the news broke, from hanging out with good friends Jaycee Chan, Chen Bolin, and Dong Youlin to celebrate Kai Ko's 27th birthday, chilling with NBA player Jeremy Lin, to wishing Scott Adkins a Happy 42nd birthday on Instagram.
On the other hand, Arissa has also been sharing lots of family photos on her social media account, and a clip of Ariel singing "Part of Your World" from Disney's "The Little Mermaid" a few days after the divorce made the news.
Reports of their divorce did not come as a shock to fans and the public alike, as the couple was hardly together since their first public spat over social media in 2014, a year after they tied the knot - with Arissa calling her husband "fake" in an Instagram rant, and Vanness responded to it by asking her to "mind your tongue".
Vanness further fuelled the rumours when he attended Ken Chu's wedding in 2016 without his wife. However, he denied rumours of marital woes when asked, only saying that he has been busy with work in mainland China, while Arissa is focused on her fashion brand.
In a previous report, Arissa's lawyer was cited saying that the heiress was not given any other alternative after receiving two divorce papers from Vanness.
Sources also alleged that she tried to save her marriage, but that the singer's only solution to the issue was to end it once and for all.
Meanwhile, according to Sina, Vanness' friends have said that the singer struggled to stay married to Arissa as the heiress wanted to continue with her party lifestyle.
The couple reportedly was able to meet the requirements of divorce under Singaporean Law on the basis of Unreasonable Behaviour, in which the parties to the marriage have lived apart for a continuous period of at least 3 years, "immediately preceding the filing of the writ and the defendant consents to a judgment being granted".
