Netflix’s “Bling Empire” is back for the second season with its all-star cast – which includes Christine Chiu, Kim Lee, Kevin Kreider, Kane Lim, Jamie Xie, Kelly Mi Li and Anna Shay. However, viewers may notice that two of his series regulars are noticeably absent from this season. That’s right, Chèrie Chan and Jessey Lee are no longer part of the reality TV series.

In July last year, TMZ reported that the couple decided to leave “Bling Empire” after shooting a few scenes for season two. “We just thought it was time for us to move on and focus on our family, our businesses,” Lee later explained to E’s daily pop.

Despite the scenes Chan and Lee filmed for season two, many of them didn’t make the final cut. Lee is not featured at all this season and Chan is only present during episodes two and three. However, rumors about their relationship and Lee’s past take center stage in the first half of the season.

The couple’s departure came just six months after the Season 1 finale aired Chan’s marriage proposal to Lee. The couple have since become engaged for a second time after Lee made an elaborate marriage proposal in Paris in August at the Jacquemart-André museum. According to People, Lee said that he “wanted to propose to Sweetie a few times,” but “the timing just wasn’t right.” Instead, he decided to stage his romantic gesture after two attempted proposals in the Maldives while Chan was still “extremely pregnant” and on a family trip to Tokyo.

After two engagements, Chan and Lee finally tied the knot in a secret ceremony in February at Chateau de Saran in Champagne, France. The pair only had eight guests in attendance due to COVID restrictions, but tell people that they plan to have a larger wedding at a later date so that both of their families can be present.
