HONG KONG - Talk has intensified that Chinese star Zhang Ziyi is in a new romance, after she was photographed last Thursday at Los Angeles airport with a Chinese rocker.
Casually togged out, they left the airport together in a car. They had flown in from Beijing, where she had arrived for the flight 10 minutes after Wang Feng, 42, reported Ming Pao Daily, citing a story in Chinese website Sohu.
Zhang, 34, was reportedly seen on the plane sharing a blanket and holding hands with Wang, who was also spotted feeding her food.
They were seen holding hands in July in L.A. where she was promoting her film The Grandmaster. They reportedly adjourned to a hotel together after a dinner date in Beijing on Aug 30. And last month, Wang announced that he has split with his second wife.
Zhang's own romance with Chinese host Sa Beining went on the rocks in July, it was said.
Popular in the early 2000s, Wang has two daughters, one from a previous relationship and another from a marriage. His career was boosted on the just-ended season two of Voice Of China, where he was a coach.
Online, gossips have criticised Zhang for picking a lesser beau, saying she earns 20 times more than him.
