Singaporean social media influencer Wendy Cheng, more popularly known as Xiaxue, announced in an Instagram post on Wednesday night that she is splitting from her American husband Michael Sayre.

The 38-year-old said in the post: “After 17 years of being together, Mike and I have decided, mutually and amicably, to end our marriage. This announcement may come as a surprise to many of you, but we have actually been separated for a long time now.”

Ms Cheng added she and Mr Sayre, who is three years her senior, took a long time to come to the decision, stating that it was not an easy one to make. They have a 10-year-old son, Dash.

She said: “This may not be the fairy-tale ending that everyone wishes for. But 17 years is a long time and we had a good run with loads of love, happiness and memories we formed together. Unfortunately nothing lasts forever.

“Our focus now is on co-parenting Dash and continuing to support each other as we move forward in separate lives.”

In her post, Ms Cheng wished Mr Sayre “nothing but happiness” in his future, and said she “never regretted picking” him.

She also apologised to her followers “who have been here with us all these years”, and sought privacy.
