Cecilia Cheung (張栢芝) and Nicholas Tse’s (謝霆鋒) marital crisis has been ongoing for the last two months. Yesterday was their son, Lucas’ fourth birthday. Taking advantage of the occasion, Cecilia forced Nicholas to spend four hours at home together with Lucas and Quintus. Cecilia took full advantage of the opportunity to make the final attempt to save their marriage and reignite Nicholas’ heart. Perhaps Cecilia and Nicholas’ relationship may be saved after all!
Since the shocking turn of events in their marriage broke, Nicholas’ heart was bent on divorce. Returning from Malaysia early last month after completing The Viral Factor <逆戰>, Cecilia and Nicholas only shared three sentences in conversation at their last meeting. The “cold war” between the pair continued.
The night before Lucas’ birthday, Nicholas brought his lawyer to Yeung Ming San Chong to discuss the divorce terms with Cecilia. Nicholas and his lawyer stayed until 11 PM before leaving. Although Cecilia and Nicholas spent ten hours together, due to the presence of lawyers, Cecilia was unable to express her heartfelt wishes to reconcile the marriage.
Cecilia Putting In Her Final Efforts
Although Cecilia and Nicholas discussed divorce terms for ten hours, Cecilia did not agree to sign the divorce papers in the final moments. Cecilia retained the hope to reconcile with Nicholas. Allegedly, Cecilia took advantage of Lucas’ birthday to make her final move. Although she intended to invite Nicholas’ family to Lucas’ party, she altered the plans last minute and forced Nicholas to spend time with her and their two sons. Due to consideration for their sons, Nicholas temporarily put aside their differences. The couple cooperated together to deliver a memorable birthday for Lucas.
Yesterday at 2 PM, Nicholas appeared wearing sunglasses and the same jacket and jeans he wore the day before. Leaving his hotel in the Admiralty area, Nichoals was surrounded by a large group of reporters. The scene was chaotic. When asked whether Nicholas will celebrate Lucas’ birthday, whether he had prepared a gift and whether his father, Patrick Tse (謝賢), had celebrated together, Nicholas did not utter a word. He retained his “chok” expression and boarded his car. At 2:20 PM, Nicholas arrived at Yeung Ming San Chong to celebrate Lucas’ birthday.
A Harmonious Atmosphere
According to reliable sources, Cecilia, Nicholas, Lucas, and Quintus had a warm, low-key celebration at home, without the presence of relatives, friends, lawyers, managers, or assistants. Taking the initiative, Cecilia told her husband her heartfelt wishes. Due to Lucas and Quintus’ lovely, innocent laughter, the roadblock between Cecilia and Nicholas was removed. The family atmosphere was harmonious and pleasant, restoring its old warmth.
At 6:20 PM, Nicholas left Yeung Ming San Chong. Upon seeing reporters, Nicholas smiled and waved. When asked whether he gave Lucas a gift, he smiled and said, “Yes.” When asked what type of gift he gave and whether Lucas was happy, Nicholas did not answer. However, his smile betrayed him. Apparently, he had a good time with Cecilia over the last four hours. Since Nicholas came from a broken family, he hoped his sons would grow up in a happy family. Perhaps Cecilia’s tactics worked and will be able to reverse the situation, allowing the couple to reconcile!
It was known that this morning, Nicholas will fly to Shanghai to film a commercials. Cecilia will fly to Ningbo to continue filming The Lion Roars Again < 河東獅吼II>. There was a possibility that Cecilia and Nicholas may run into each other at the airport, allowing Cecilia additional opportunities for reconciliation.
Seeking opportunities to be alone with Nicholas, Cecilia made early arrangements. The day before, a birthday party was held for Lucas, with the attendance of Cecilia’s mother, sister, brother, and good friends, Grace Yip (葉佩雯), Ruby Lin (林心如), and Rick Chin. A dozen of Lucas’ friends were also invited. To make the children happy, Cecilia invited a clown to perform magic tricks and twist balloons. A cotton candy machine was also available at the party; Lucas was not given preferential treatment and had to wait in line.
Allegedly, Cecilia bought some toys for Lucas while Nicholas bought an iPad 2 for his birthday.
