A Chinese man divorced his wife and then sues her because their baby is allegedly ugly to him. It’s one of the weirdest complaints filed in a suit, but there’s a lot more to the story.
Jian Feng accused his wife of infidelity, so sure that he could never father an unattractive child. When a DNA test proved that the baby was his, Feng’s wife came clean on a little secret — before they met, she had undergone about $100,000 worth of cosmetic surgery in South Korea. Feng sued his ex-wife on the grounds of false pretenses, for not telling him about the plastic surgery and duping him into thinking she was beautiful.
Most people would call this lawsuit ridiculous and just laugh, but he actually won. In fact, a judge agreed with Feng’s argument and ordered his ex-wife to fork over $120,000.
“I married my wife out of love, but as soon as we had our first daughter, we began having marital issues,” he told the Irish Times. “Our daughter was incredibly ugly, to the point where it horrified me.”
The story was first reported by The Macedonia International News Agency (Mina) and picked up by InterAkyson. More recently, photos of the Chinese baby in question appeared on the Web after being posted to photo-sharing website Flickr. The validity of the leaked pictures, however, is still unconfirmed.
