In the eyes of the media, Gaile Lok and Leon Lai’s marriage has been doomed from the start. Despite earlier reports suggesting that all is well between the two, recent news has suggested that the two are on the verge of calling it quits.
The 45-year-old Heavenly King raised eyebrows back in 2008, when he secretly wed 32-year-old Gaile in the US. Rumours of a growing rift between the two have been circulating since a year into their marriage. The two spend most of their time apart due to work and have yet to bear any children.
Recent reports claim that Gaile has started on paperwork to bring her dog, Tiger, back to the US. Leon is said to have resigned from his current director position in the couple’s jointly-owned company in July, raising alarm bells.
Reporters visited Gaile’s home in the US, where her mother confirmed that Gaile is finalizing documents to bring Tiger to the US but claimed to be unsure of whether she would be moving back permanently. She further shared that she has not seen Leon since the Lunar New Year and is unsure of his rumoured resignation.
During a recent interview, reporters asked about Leon’s status in the company, to which Gaile responded, “Is it even possible for you to find out?”
As to whether or not she will be ending her marriage, she shot back, “If I were to get divorced, you would definitely be able to find out.”
Leon has avoided the media, slipping away after his official activities end, refusing to answer any questions on his personal life.
