Man sues wife for $120k after their ‘ugly’ baby is born, wins
Failed relationships can get ugly, but the story of a Chinese man divorcing his wife really gives new meaning to the old cliché.
Jian Feng filed a lawsuit against his wife in May after she gave birth to the couple’s daughter. Upon seeing the “ugly” baby, Feng thought there was no way she could be the spawn of him and his “beautiful” partner, and initially concluded that his wife had been having an affair.
When DNA tests proved that the child was in fact his baby, it emerged that before Feng had married his wife, she had undergone $100,000 worth of plastic surgery in South Korea where the decisive knife of a surgeon, not the gene pool, crafted her flawless bone structure.
Feng has since been awarded $120,000 from his wife, as a sympathetic judge agreed that she had tricked him into marrying her under “false pretences”.
Needless to say, they are now divorced.
