Ethan Ruan and Tiffany Hsu have hit a rough patch in their relationship. Marriage was said to be on the cards for the Taiwanese actors who have been living together for five years and dating for eight years. However, according to insiders, Tiffany moved out of their love nest and returned home to live with her mother a month ago.
In an interview, Tiffany said that they are currently undergoing a “cooling-off” period while Ethan stressed that they are “temporarily living apart.”
“We have not broken up. She is still my only one,” he said.
In addition, Ethan clarified rumours which claimed that he cheated on Tiffany. “Where is this rumour coming from? I cheated on someone? We are just taking a break to think about what we really want since we’ve been together for so long,” said the exasperated actor.
“Tiffany is very important to me. In this crucial period for the two of us, can’t you give us a little space?”
The 32-year-old also shot down rumours which claimed that sparks flew between him and 23-year-old Chinese actress Zhou Dongyu, after they collaborated on two films, Runway Detective and Under the Sicily Sun.
“Nothing is wrong,” he said. “These are just silly rumours.”
Likewise, Dongyu’s agent also denied the third party rumours and stated that Ethan and Dongyu are not together.
Ethan and Tiffany share an affectionate and enviable relationship and are a well-recognised couple in Taiwanese showbiz. Tiffany shed light on their wedding plans in 2012 when she said they would “probably get married” in another two years’ time. At Mark Chao’s wedding which they attended together last year, the couple said they have yet to set a date for their wedding.
