Chinese Actress Zhang Yuqi Married for Second Time

The revelation that top actress Zhang Yuqi has gotten married for the second time has become trending news on Sina Weibo.

Popular Chinese actress Zhang Yuqi (张雨绮), also known as Kitty Zhang Yuqi, has tied the knot. The actress, known for her roles in Shaolin Girl or The Mermaid, is an influential Weibo figure with 5.7 million fans on her official account (@张雨绮).

The hashtag #Zhang Yuqi Got Married (#张雨绮结婚) became one of Weibo’s top trending topics on October 26, when the news of her marriage was officially released by the management: “Princess Belle Zhang Yuqi has found her Beast Prince. Two single people fell in love within ten days of meeting and got married on the 70th day. This was the perfect encounter.”

Zhang met her husband in July of this year, and the two got married in September. Their marriage was not known until now.

It is rumored that Zhang’s new husband is a Shanghai local banking tycoon by the name of Yuan Bayuan (袁巴元).

Zhang Yuqi has had a bumpy love life. In 2011, the then 25-year-old actress married director Wang Quanan (王全安), who was 20 years older than her. In 2014, Wang was detained for paid sex charges after being caught with a prostitute in a Beijing apartment. Zhang announced their divorce later that year.

“I wish her all the luck, and hope this one is better than her ex,” many netizens say about Zhang’s unexpected second marriage.
