Ali and Justin

Justin and Ali Wong first med each other in 2010 at a friend’s wedding reception and immediately rose a spark. At the time of their meeting, Justin was a student at Harvard. Wong has jokingly talked about “trapping” Justin during the Baby Cobra show in 2016.

She said: “The first thing I learned about him was that, at the time, he was attending Harvard Business School. And I was like, ‘Oh, my God, I’m gonna trap his a**. Going to trap his a**!’ And I trapped his a** initially by not kissing him until the fifth date, which is a very unusual move on my part. But I did it on purpose because I knew that he was a catch.”

After a few years of dating, the couple decided to tie the know and got married in San Francisco on 27 November 2014. Wong also revealed in her memoir that she had made a prenuptial agreement with Justin before they got married.

She claimed that the agreement made her work harder for her career and also added: “My father always praised ‘the gift of fear.’ And that prenup scared the s*it out of me. In the end, being forced to sign that prenup was one of the greatest things that ever happened to me and my career.”

The circumstances that led to the divorce are still unclear and we have yet to receive an official statement from any of the two.
