Yet another celebrity breakup of 2016 has surfaced, this times it's Taiwanese pop star Jolin Tsai and model Vivian Dawson. The couple has been seeing each other for more than six years. With a successful career spanning two decades, Jolin has perfectly transformed from teen idol to diva over the course of time. With 13 studio albums to her kitty, she is definitely a hit maker.
It came as a shocker for fans as their relationship was seen as stable over the years. In fact, everyone was expecting them to tie the knot soon. Jolin's manager confirmed the news of separation and further stated that the decision is mutual and amicable.
Jolin, 36, and New Zealand-born Dawson, 32, met each other while working together for a music video in 2010. At that time, Jolin was an established star while Dawson was still struggling to get a foothold in the industry. However, Dawson got the big break in 2012 after the release of Tiny Times 3.
In a recent interview, Dawson said that he would like to have a wife who adopts his surname, wears her wedding ring and shares marital assets. However, he soon clarified that he was misquoted by the media and what he actually meant was to have separate ownership of assets post wedding. Still, the other opinions stood firm. Ever since their break up news was out, people have started speculating that these tradition views might be the reason for the split. The career-oriented Jolin will never agree to these thoughts.
Before indulging in a relationship with Dawson, Jolin was dating Mandopop king Jay Chou, 37, for almost three years and was also linked to actor Eddie Peng, 34.
Jolin's latest stage performance was in front of the Presidential Office Building in Taipei early this week. She joined hands with dozens of popular singers, including Denise Ho from Hong Kong, Sandee Chan, Freya Lim and Ailing Tai to hold a concert in support of legalizing gay marriage in Taiwan. The main highlight of the event was a video recording where more than a hundred stars, led by Jolin Tsai and Elva Hsiao, took an oath to support same-sex marriage.
