Hong Kong singer-actor Nicolas Tse and fellow entertainer Cecilia Cheung have agreed to divorce, the much admired couple announced this afternoon.
In a letter released to the media, the couple said their five-year marriage has come to an end due to their "personality conflict."
"We would share custody of our two children. Their happy and healthy growth will always prioritize in our future concerns and plans," they said.
They said they would make no further public response to questions about their broken marriage in the future and they appealed to the public and media to give their two sons enough room to live and grow up peacefully.
The announcement was dated Friday but was released this afternoon by their agents.
Both Tse and Cheung are award-winning Hong Kong artists with a huge following on the mainland.
Cecilia Cheung was involved in Edison Chen's sex photo scandal in 2008 when naked pictures of the actor with several actresses including her were exposed online. The actress had just given birth to her first son then and the scandal placed huge pressure on her and her young family.
