Has actor-turned-cabby Peter Yu been paying maintenance fees to Quan Yi Feng?
Main Image for Story

Quan Yi Feng has questioned her ex-husband Peter Yu's decision to go on-air to talk about his life after their failed marriage.

Shin Min Daily understands that Yu, who went off the rader for four years ago and only resurfaced recently when he was revealed to have become a taxi driver, is poised to apologise for certain things in his life, some of which may be related to his split from the Taiwanese-born television compere.

It is also understood that Yu will talk about how much he misses his daughter, who was conceived with Quan.

When the Chinese newspaper spoke to Quan about this, she did not buy his sentiments, claiming instead that he didn't want to initiate contact.

She even suggested that Yu has not been paying the maintenance fees owed to her and their daughter.

"It's been four years (since the divorce) and he hasn't come over to visit our daughter. There wasn't even a phone call throughout the four years.

"Our home's phone number hasn't changed over the four years too so it was actually awaiting a call.

"After the divorce, has he carried out his legal obligations, or his responsibilities as a father?"

It is also believed that Quan will not be reporting this matter to the authorities, and has no plans to ask Yu for the maintenance fees.

"Not hauling (her daughter's) daddy to court is the last thing I can do to protect her."

When the Chinese newspaper made contact with Yu over the phone, he spoke briefly about his life -- he's now a Christian and has started a new family with a volunteer at the church he goes to -- but became evasive when asked about the maintenance fee to Quan and whether he tried making contact with his daughter.

She also revealed that their daughter has been checking Yu's facebook profile for updates on his life, and that she will not stop her from meeting her father if she wants to.

She has given her daughter Yu's phone number, and will let her decide for herself what she wants to do.

"My daughter's a big girl now. Her father (Yu) didn't offend her so she should not hold that grudge, otherwise it won't be good for her growing up."
