Zai Zai confirm break-up - Maintain life-long family ties with Barbie, Wednesday, December 16, 2007

Vic Zhou Yu Min and Barbie Hsu two and a half years of sister, brother relationship have ended.
Yesterday, Zai Zai who was in Taiyuan, capital city of Shanxi province, China announced the seperation with Barbie.

They were unable to maintain as a love couple but they can become life-long friends of close family ties.

At the press reception, Zai Zai was asked about the new on the break-up;
He said: 'It's true, we have broken up, the feeling with Barbie is one from being her boyfriend to that of family member. The feeling of being a family member will be everlasting, this is much better.
He was reluctant to disclose the reasons for the seperation but he feels that the two and half years with Barbie were good times.

Rumours spread that the reasons for the breaking up were publicity for the film and that of
the female is stronger than the male even forced marriage?

Zai Zai rebut that it's only hearsay, it's not the facts and that he did not wish to comment more.

That the cause was forced marriages;

The 32 year old Barbie have been reported to be impatient, wanting to get married and have children,
the reason for her break-up with her former boyfriend Lan zheng Long 4 years ago was also due to the
forced marriage which led to the breakdown of the relationship.

Zai Zai plans in his early life was to be married at the age of 25 and become a dad at age 30.
Never to expect that after his 26th birthday, he is still unwilling to get married, that he had
changed his intentions and to maintain the relationship first.
Even if it was Barbie who initiate the seperation, it is understandable.

There were also reports that Barbie's mother is not too satisfied with this prospective son-inlaw.
As a mother, it is only understandable that her own daughter gets married to a good husband.

Yesterday, Mrs. Hsu and Barbie's spokesman responded to the reporters questions.
She first denied that the 'forced marriage' was not the cause of the seperation.
Barbie and Zai Zai are concentrating on their careers that's why they decided to seperate.
She added that: 'Whether to get married is not a problem, the most important thing is that the
both of them are too busy, they feel they want to make their careers as the first priority.
That's why they agreed on the seperation.

Isn't it a waste?
'Fate is like that, in the future everyone are still friends.
Friends treat each other sincerely and in the future they will still be able to encourage one another.'
Big S do not have the wisdom and the ability to get married.

Mrs. Hsu confirmed the break-up with Zai Zai and Barbie was interviewed on the website regarding the breake-up but she was evasive
The Internet hosts states that Mrs. Hsu have admitted to their seperation.
Barbie was calm and replied: 'What Mrs. Hsu can say whatever she wants, I am in no position to
prevent her. She is my mother, she can speak on my behalf.

Last night after having returned to Taiwan, with regards to the seperation,
she expressed that all along she have not never insisted. She have sufficient courage to
face the future.
'To engage in a marraige relationship, including teaching the children, having a good relationship
with the parents-inlaw, involves everyone's cooperation. I do not have the wisdom nor the ability
to engage in such matters.

Actually, was the announcement on the seperation planned beforehand?

In actual fact in mid December last year, Zai Zai had already made known the 'seperation notice'.
Outsiders misunderstood that for a marriage announcement.
Last year on December 9, when Zai Zai was in Shanghai to attend the prize presentation ceremony,
he media asked when the marraige will take place?

Zai Zai replied that: 'There will be a breakthrough in our relationship next year.'
He did not elaborate further what he meant by breakthrough.
Now we understand the real meaning of his statement. The breakthrough is their decision to seperate.

Reports state that the date for their breakup was on the 4th of January.

It's been reported that in 2006 when both of them wanted to get married, Mrs Hsu turned around
and told Zai Zai that he had to be married into their family which really hurt him.
The age difference of 5 years (example of a brother attaching to an elder siste) whereby the
female's personality is stronger than the male, could also be a factor for the seperation.

Those who worked with Zai Zai revealed:
Recently Zai Zai have been working really hard, and was always discussing work matters with the
staff. He's very different from last time where he used to be very shy and did not have any
views on matters. Seems like he is using work to treat the wounds and to express that he is
not a 'small man'.

When informed of the break-up between good friend Zai Zai and Barbie:
He was surprised and exclaimed that he didn't; Because I've been very busy with
work recently, didn't have time to contact others.

Will you look up Zai Zai and comfort him when you get back to Taiwan?
'I will look up friends for chats, as a friend, definitely I will do what it's need.
To comfort him? Everyone's condition is different.'

Will introduce a girl that you know?
'That fast? Very cruel ah..! Let me understand the matter first, see if it's true then
see how it goes.'
He added that he will be texting Ken Zhu to wish him 'A Happy Birthday'.
