Following rumours of a divorce, Taiwanese actress Phoebe Huang recently admitted that she and husband Christopher Downs have called it quits on their marriage.
In a statement released by her lawyer on 6 July, the actress stated that the media reports about her divorce have alarmed a lot of relatives and friends, who contacted her to express their concerns.
“The decision and the process of divorcing is very difficult. It is also the last resort. I sincerely didn’t want to hurt our child because of media reports,” she expressed.
“Finally, once again, I am deeply sorry for taking up social resources with my personal issue. During the pandemic, I hope everyone is safe and healthy.”
Rumours of Phoebe and Christopher’s divorce sparked after a netizen claimed to have found out that there is a divorce case in court under Phoebe Huang’s name. The netizen said that they thought it might just be someone with a similar name and was surprised to see that the husband’s name was actually Christopher Downs.
The couple tied the knot in 2006, with their daughter born in 2009. Due to the pandemic, Phoebe and Christopher lived separately, with the latter residing in Canada.
