Jay Chou and Hannah Quinlivan recently exchanged vows for the third time! They held another wedding celebration at Hannah’s hometown in Brisbane, Australia so that Hannah’s family and friends could celebrate with them.
The couple first got married in Yorkshire, England in January. Then, they had another wedding banquet in Taipei so that Jay Chou’s grandmother, who was too old to take a long flight, could attend.
Notably missing from all three wedding ceremonies was Jay Chou’s former mentor and TV host Jacky Wu. Jacky Wu, 52, is responsible for launching and building Jay’s career. Reportedly, the two had a falling out when Jacky sold his record label, Alfa Music, along with Jay’s contract for NT $300 million in 2001. In response to media inquiries about the invitation snub, Jacky expressed his disappointment and had some harsh words for Jay. “Do you [Jay Chou] want to make me look bad by not inviting me?”
He also said, “The person who has helped you the most in your life wasn’t even at your wedding? There must be an issue somewhere. How can this person face his future? My parents always taught me to remember those who have helped me before and personally thank them.”
He stated that it was fine even if Jay had sent him an invitation and then asked him not to go, so he could still lie to the media saying that he received an invite. As Jay Chou also invited other entertainment industry seniors like Jody Chiang, Chang Fei, and Chang Hsiao-yen to their Taipei wedding, Jacky felt like this was a jab directed towards him.
Jay’s company JVR Music maintained that Jacky Wu was on the guest list but in the end, Jay’s mother made the short list.
