Gong Li’s manager Christophe Tseng confirmed to the Southern Metropolis Entertainment Weekly that the actress has recently divorced.
Gong Li married Singaporean Ooi Hoe Seong in 1996. They have rarely been seen together in public.
In 2008, China-born Gong Li became a Singaporean citizen, triggering many Chinese Internet users to call her a “traitor”. She responded that she changed her citizenship because of her family, and when asked if the term “family” referred to her husband and in-laws, the actress nodded.
