Chinese actor Li Yapeng is probably familiar with rumours and speculations about his love life.

Last May, the 49-year-old was seen holding hands with 33-year-old writer Susie Wu, and he confirmed their relationship thereafter. 

But according to recent reports, Yapeng — who divorced Chinese songstress Faye Wong in 2013 — seems to have a new love. Yapeng and Faye have a 14-year-old daughter named Li Yan together. 

In a video that was circulated online on Nov 21, he is seen holding hands with a mystery woman, who gives him a kiss on the cheek. He also declared: "We're meant to be together."

Needless to say, the video has piqued the interest of netizens. They soon discovered that the mysterious woman is Haiha Jinxi, a 30-year-old model and actress. She was also a finalist in the Miss China World pageant in 2011.

The considerable age gap of 19 years between the two lovebirds has also caught the public's attention, who noted there was a 16-year gap between Yapeng and Susie.

Yapeng has not acknowledged the latest speculations but netizens believe the video is conclusive proof that the two are in fact a couple.
