Two months ago, Cecilia Cheung and her two sons, Lucas and Quintus, relocated to Singapore.
Both boys were also enrolled in an international school in Singapore.
Hong Kong reports have stated that it was Nicholas Tse’s idea of arranging for his sons to study in Singapore.
Cecilia’s initial plan was to reside in Canada with her two sons, reports Sina via Asian Pop News.
However, Nicholas’ family did not want Lucas and Quintus to reside so far away.
There was also speculation that Nicholas initially wanted his sons to receive an education in Hong Kong, but a Christian international school had rejected them after the media reported the name of the school.
For the sake of his sons, Nicholas eventually gave in and arranged for them to settle in Singapore, which is quite near Hong Kong.
As Cecilia has halted her acting career, he has reportedly increased her living expenses and bought a HK$20 million (S$3,296,240) property in Singapore for her and their two boys.
However, Cecilia had publicly stated in 2013 that she has never taken a cent of alimony from her ex-husband.
In the statement to the media, Cheung detailed that she has been “self-sufficient” since their divorce, and that Tse’s only financial obligation is towards the living expenses of their two young boys, Lucas, 6, and Quintus, 3.
Cheung added that she has been supporting herself and her own family for the past 10 years.
She issued the statement after Taiwanese media recently reported that she had demanded for an increase in alimony payments from the actor.
