Taiwanese pop group S.H.E was unable to put on a concert to celebrate their 18th debut anniversary, but members Selina Jen, Hebe Tien and Ella Chen were still able to meet up for a meal together to mark the occasion on September 17.
Other than the trio, also spotted in attendance was Ella’s husband, businessman Alvin Lai, and Selina’s ex-husband, lawyer Richard Chang.
Richard’s appearance at the dinner took many fans and netizens by surprise, many of whom couldn’t figure out why Selina’s ex-husband was present at the meal, especially since they had divorced three years ago. At an event appearance on September 19, Selina finally cleared the air.
“Richard has given us a lot of legal assistance (Ed’s note: It was previously reported that he was assisting S.H.E in their negotiations with their ex-management agency to obtain the legal rights to the group’s name and discography), so we wanted to treat him to a meal,” Selina shared, adding that their relationship had not soured even after their divorce, and that they would ask after the other every once in a while.
When probed for more details about their current relationship, Selina laughed, “It’s definitely not as good as our relationship before (the divorce, though)!”
Selina tied the knot with Richard in 2011, and announced that they were getting a divorce five years later, in 2016.
