After much speculation, it was revealed that Chinese actress Ge Tian and husband, Olympic gold medallist Liu Xiang, have called it quits after less than a year of marriage.

As reported by On CC News, on 25 June, the athlete announced the news on his Weibo account, saying, “I fell in love with Ge Tian in May last year and married her in September. Due to our differences in personality, we are ending our marriage today.”

“I hope that the two of us will find our true happiness, but not together.”
When asked to respond to the news, Ge Tian refused to elaborate about their divorce and asked the media to talk to Liu Xiang instead.
Rumours of their marital woes have sparked since May, when they were revealed to have been living separately since the beginning of the month.
