The romantic mood was tempered somewhat by the presence of Tang’s mother, who sat near the couple and occasionally reached over to sneak sips from their cups of tea. When Ding and Tang were asked by a reporter if they were reconciling, they quickly answered in unison, “The dog is sick, that’s why we met up today.”
One couple that seems intent on blowing up all bridges is actress Jean Wang (王靜瑩) and soon-to-be ex-husband Chen Wei-tao (陳威陶), whose divorce proceedings have been long and acrimonious. The Liberty Times reported that after yet another failed settlement negotiation, Wang posted on her blog that while divorce is painful, she did not want her toddler son to grow up in an abusive household.
Chen immediately lashed out, calling for Wang to produce proof of abuse and threatening to sue her if she couldn’t come up with the evidence. After Chen’s retort, Wang’s entry disappeared for a few hours before reappearing.
The two have been battling for custody of their three-year-old son. Chen’s family has accused Wang of causing him emotional distress by refusing to let him see the tot, while Wang’s side accuses Chen of having an explosive temper.
