Hong Kong - Hong Kong film producer Nansun Shi has confirmed that she and film-maker Tsui Hark are divorced.

The film power couple have for years refused to be explicit about their marriage and there had been talk in 2008 that they had split up.

But Shi told Ming Pao Daily by phone about the split, "It happened recently."

Hark was last month seen on a movie date with a woman, reportedly his assistant, in Taipei. Apple Daily photos showed the 30something woman fondling his face and Tsui with his arm around her shoulders.
