Chinese celebrity Wang Baoqiang's divorce case will be heard in court at 1:30pm on Tuesday, ifeng.com reports.

The famous Chinese actor, known for his roles in comedy films, filed for divorce on August 15 with a Beijing court one day after he made a "divorce announcement" on his Weibo account.

Wang alleges that his wife, Ma Rong, had an affair with his agent Song Zhe, hid and transferred property and "hurt his family members."

The couple were married in 2010.

It is reported that Wang is likely to submit evidence of Ma's extramarital affair with Song, including the messages they sent to each other.

According to Wang's lawyer, Zhang Qihuai, Wang has added a demand that Ma pay damages for his emotional distress.

Wang had demanded full custody of their son and daughter, and requested that Ma pay child support until both the children turn 18.

Wang had also demanded a split of the couple's belongings, including nine apartments (one of which is in Los Angeles), stocks and investments, a BMW, a Bentley, jewelry, watches, handbags and clothes, financial products and insurance.

Zhang said Wang will show up in court to attend the trial himself, while Ma has applied the case to be heard in a private session and has applied to not attend the trial herself.

Ma, on the other hand, also filed a lawsuit with a Beijing court. She alleges that Wang's declaration of his divorce decision on his Weibo account was libel and demands an apology.

This case will also be heard in court on Tuesday at 4pm, the same day as Wang's trial but at a later time.

Wang gained popularity for his appearance as Shagen in Feng Xiaogang's 2004 film "A World Without Thieves," where he played a naive village boy carrying his life savings in cash with him on a train.

He has since starred in other hit films such as "Lost in Thailand" and "Monk Comes Down the Mountain."

Wang's divorce has attracted high public attention and heated discussions in China, with most netizens condemning Ma for her extramarital affair and transferring property.
