This comes 15 years (!) since they dated in the early aughts, back them she was still at the early days of her modeling career and he was riding the high of Meteor Garden.

Their relationship was covered by tabloids but never openly confirmed by either party, and they broke up after a few years reportedly because Jerry wasn’t ready to settle down. Malaysian tabloids caught Jerry Yan arriving at Kulala Lumpur airport on November 10th and saw Lin Chi Ling picking him up before the pair went back to the hotel together. Lin Chi Ling had work there on the 10th but Jerry’s doesn’t have any events there so the media is noting that he flew there to spend time with her.
