Perhaps some astrologer to celebrities has foretold the 27th of November to be an excellent date to show off one’s beaus, or perhaps Team Homdi is telepathically connected. Either way, classical pianist Li Yundi, rumored-boyfriend of Wang Lee Hom, decided to show off his girlfriend (pictured left) to the world today on Weibo, the same day that Wang Lee Hom released a photo of his SO on Facebook proving that he is totally not gay, OKAY?
The post reads:
I’m very happy today. Everyone should love, and be loved with true passion! My [partner] is Tian Fei, 25, finance and mathematics graduate from Columbia University. We met last year. She’s very kind! I hope to be able to walk my journey of music with all of you in the future. Thank you for your support all this while.”
Given the rumors of his relationship with Wang Lee Hom from earlier this year, the timing of this announcement has been termed as “revenge” for a similar post by Wang just earlier today, or as an attempt to share some of Wang’s limelight, according to online responses excerpted here.
The one comment that’s really chuckle-worthy though (alluding to the fact that Wang’s girlfriend, Li Jinglei, is also a graduate student at Columbia): “What, is there a Groupon for girlfriends from Columbia U?”
