Kim Lim is the daughter of Singaporean billionaire Peter Lim. While she’s often in the limelight as an influencer who’s part of the rich and famous crowd, not much is known about her ex-husband, who dislikes social media and publicity in general.

The only time he received media attention was when he was out on $25,000 bail after being charged for remote gambling offences.

The pair first met at a Buddhist temple in Thailand in 2016, where she found herself being attracted to his strong build and “bad boy” vibes. Turns out, he was a friend of her assistant. Not long after, they got married in early 2017, and had their first and only child Kyden five months later.

Citing a lost spark and monotonous relationship as the reason for the breakup - and saying it had nothing to do with Bin Khai’s gambling charges - Kim was the one who brought up the divorce. In his usual quiet nature, her former husband calmly accepted it.

According to her, they did make attempts to rekindle the marriage, but to no avail.

"Instead of forcing ourselves to survive in an unhappy marriage, it's better to give each other freedom."
