Taiwanese actress Barbie Hsu, 45, and her husband of 10 years, Chinese businessman Wang Xiaofei, 40, have really called it quits this time.

According to reports, Barbie filed for divorce at the family court of the Taipei District Court in early November. The couple will divide NT$900mil (S$44.1m) worth of assets, including a NT$600m Taiwan mansion (S$29.4m), which is under Barbie’s name, and Xiaofei’s S Hotel worth NT$350m (S$17.2m).

They have reportedly reached an understanding on arrangements for spending time with their two kids, seven-year-old daughter Hsi-yueh and five-year-old son Hsi-lin, which will be announced soon.

1 of 2 Divorce rumours began swirling in June

In June, Barbie made headlines when she announced that she had filed for divorce from Xiaofei. The split was said to be partially attributed to his penchant for posting disparaging comments about Taiwan on Weibo, which Barbie found unacceptable.

Xiaofei refuted the rumours and there were even reports in August, saying the couple had “reconciled”.

When Xiaofei, who is based in Beijing, travelled to Taipei in September, he assured netizens that things are fine between him and Barbie.

However, he was later found to have deleted all posts on Barbie on Douyin. He also changed his Weibo bio to read ‘Hsi-Yueh’s dad”, which further fuelled divorce rumors.

    According to a Mirror Weekly report, sources close to the couple said Xiaofei’s recent trip to Taipei wasn’t to celebrate Barbie’s birthday, which was on October 6, but to discuss about their divorce.

    Barbie and Xiaofei dated for 49 days before getting married in March 2011.
