Leah Dizon to split from husband of two years

33 Comments

American model and singer Leah Dizon, 24, has announced that she is to divorce her husband of two years. Although her agency initially denied rumors of a split, it was confirmed over the weekend that Dizon is filing for divorce from her stylist husband BUN, 31, and she is looking for consultation on retaining full custody of their child.

The rift is said to have been caused by the couple's busy schedules and inability to meet regularly. It was then deepened by the couple's differing opinions toward raising children, according to tabloid reports.

It is believed the couple met in 2008 on the set of a promo video shoot for Dizon's single "Love Paradox." The pair were married in October of the same year in what Dizon later confirmed had been a shotgun wedding.

In February of this year, in an apparent attempt to paper over the cracks that had been appearing since the birth of their daughter Mila, Dizon publicly discussed making cookies for her husband on Valentine's Day but a few months later, the couple's differences proved to be irreconcilable.

Bun is apparently like Kevin federline without the redeeming qualities.

As predicted when she got pregnant, young people should wait with marriage until they are ready and know what they want to do with their lives

Wow, ignorance for everyone involved! Really? She married a "male" hairdresser named "BUN?" Who couldn't have predicted this ending?

My sympathies go out to the daughter Mila, who is clearly the "brains" of the family.

American? Singer? Model? ... Singer; 'popstar' maybe more appropriate... Model; I don't want to 'categorize'...American; is BUN american? then she would be american by marriage, which is just about to end. but as to 'ethnicity', everybody knows that she's japanese-filipina. The point is, JT could have started the article in a different way...with 'hard facts' perhaps.

@ Gebeson looks like YOU need to check the hard facts. She is half CHINESE-Filipino. That side is her dad's and French-American from her mother. I guess everyone knows but you....

Moderator: Back on topic please. Her ethnic background is irrelevant.

Real question is why on earth is this on JT................

A/ She cut off her Bun.

Bun is apparently like Kevin federline without the redeeming qualities.

Keven Federline had redeeming qualities? Are you referring to his dancing or his rapping??

Anyone shocked at this? I do recall the comments when they got married about it lasting two years! Seems we were correct. Will be interesting to see what happens with the child and custody!

I guess her ass has lost its appeal, since that was what I remember him saying why he liked her.

The guy seemed like an idiot from the start. Not surprised that LD has finally realized it, even if she's not the brightest bulb in the chandelier she seems to have become able to see what an idiot he is.

Wow so many people on tis website called it.. HAHAHA.. Now she has a kid and a career that never really got started. Well there is always the Bikini Model stuff I guess, because her singing was terrible.

Big F..... Woopee.....

thanks for writing this article!

it was a deki-kon, it was doomed from the start. theres japanese forums going wild saying things like 'i wonder if shes found happiness at all since coming to japan' and 'she would have probably been happier if she stayed in the US'. leah seems really lovely and also quite fragile, so i hope that this mess gets sorted out for her sake as well as baby mila's. i sure hope her husband wasnt the scumbag playboy everyone thought him to be though.

And it all started with a BUN in the oven. Lesson learned too late.

discussed making cookies for her husband on Valentine’s Day but a few months later, the couple’s differences proved to be irreconcilable

i.e. even the cookies couldn't keep them together

not mature enough to have marriage.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Well it was a shotgun wedding from the start, so the 2 years was really just a trial period to see if it would work for the sake of the child. Honestly that alone makes her a better mother than a lot of people lol.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Is she even important? I never heard of her and I live in America. I guess 2 years is a long time to be married on the list of celebrity marriages, heck Nick Cage and Lisa Marie Presley were only married for a little more than 3 months and he was infatuated with her father, the KING. So this is a major nonevent. This space could have been used to discuss some other dribble.

She's not the first nor will she be the last to make such as mistake. The only innocent one here is the child.

This is not news......it's gossip and belongs in the tabloids. Let her be and hopefully the kid won't grow up to be messed up like her mom. Most news out of the entertainment business is all fluff but people seem to take delight when the big and mighty comes crashing to the ground.

Files for divorce and also plans on stealing their child from the dad too. The nerve of some people.

Maybe her "sutenaide~" quote from 2 years ago should have been directed at her husband, not her fans.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

gurukun, you mean "poi shinaide"

And once again we see why shotgun weddings are never a good idea. Being miserable "for the sake of the children" or "trying to make it work" just because someone impregnated you are never going to lead anywhere near the road to happiness.

bicultural, thanx for the correction! Not a big fan of hers, but I thought it something close to that.

at least shes still got a nice pair of buns. three is a crowd as they say

So she's going to be single eh?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Like I said two years ago. Go back home to Vegas, Leah.

My wife told me today that she has read several websites, including Yahoo Japan, saying she will being doing soft porn adult video. Just a stepping stone to the real deal I guess. I really feel bad for the kid in this situation. Hopefully dad steps up and trys to get custody somehow.

I still want to know who gets the kid!
