TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – The day after Foxconn Technology Group Chairman Terry Gou (郭台銘) revealed that his wife, Delia Tseng (曾馨瑩), had left him because he was running for president, she arrived back in Taiwan on a flight from Japan, reports said Friday (April 26).

Gou, 68, told a TV interview Thursday that he hadn’t seen his wife for a week, since April 17, when he announced his intention to participate in the opposition Kuomintang primaries to select a candidate for the January 2020 presidential election.

The tycoon, whose company is known as the world’s major producer of iPhones for Apple, Inc., also came under fire for using the expression that “the harem should not involve itself in politics.” He later apologized and said that during the past few days, he had learned how tough the job of a mother could be.

On Friday afternoon, Tseng was spotted arriving at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport on a China Airlines flight from Osaka, Japan, the Central News Agency reported.

She said she had just been traveling to get some quiet time on her own. Asked about her opinion of her husband’s political choices, she said she would talk about that later, without elaborating.

Tseng, 45, a choreographer, is Gou’s second wife. They have three children together.
