On August 21, Nam Hyun Hee took to her Instagram, where she uploaded a letter to fans.

In her letter, the athlete addressed allegations surrounding her marriage. Nam Hyun Hee married cyclist Gong Hyo Suk in 2011.

Many people have been asking if I had gotten a divorce. I am writing to you after debating whether I should answer the question. I am divorced.

Making the decision to divorce was extraordinarily difficult. I have a very precious child. I tried (to make the marriage work) for my child. I tried my best as a wife because we had promised to spend the rest of our lives together. I have never done anything embarrassing as a wife and as a mother.

Nam Hyun Hee then revealed she had divorced Gong Hyo Suk due to his inability to stay faithful.

I have always tried to understand and forgive him. But as time went by, the issues that I had forgiven would resurface, and due to this, we separated. (My former husband) scarred the family due to his unfaithfulness.

The athlete then revealed that she had found new love and looked forward to spending the rest of her life with them.

There is a person who has given their sincere love to me and my daughter. He is someone who I will spend the rest of my life with. Thanks to him, I will remain the positive person that I am today.
