Malaysian singer Gary Chaw who previously ranted publicly over his personal life on social media has now announced his divorce from Taiwanese fashion blogger Wu Shu-ling on their Instagram story this Saturday (26 Nov).
It is understood that the former couple, who had been in a 14-year marriage, was in a cold war for months before their official announcement.
Gary Chaw and Wu Shu-ling released the same statement on their Instagram that recounted their beautiful memories together.
However, things didn’t turn out well in the second half of their marriage.
“We were constantly unable to understand each other,” they wrote.

Chaw went back to Malaysia for a concert and reportedly shared his marriage problems during one press conference for his show.

Marriage problem surfaces in October
Gary and Wu have a pair of children – Joe and Grace. After marriage, he lost control of his emotions after drinking many times. Since last year, the two rarely interact publicly or social media.
This year, Wu broke her silence in October, saying, “The load I have endured has exceeded what I can afford’, revealing more of her state of mind.
Before he returned to Malaysia, he confessed to the media that he was in a cold war with his wife and revealed that the duo were trying to restore their relationship, reported Oriental Daily.
However, the Chinese daily reported that they weren’t sure they could live peacefully for the rest of their lives. They only hoped that the whole process would not hurt their children.
