Chinese Father Sues Wife for Delivering Ugly Baby
Usually when couples with kids decide to go their separate ways, they tell the children that the divorce was not their fault. It would be very interesting to see how this mother and father handle that question...
Jian Feng of China filed a lawsuit against his ex-wife because the baby she gave birth to didn't meet his standards of beauty, according to the Irish Examiner.
Feng described his daughter as "incredibly ugly" the first time he saw her. He was so disgusted by the child's appearance that it "horrified" him on a constant basis. He initially believed that he wasn't the child's father, but a DNA test showed that the baby came from both parents.
Feng dug a little deeper in his wife's history and found that she'd had over $100,000 worth of plastic surgery in South Korea before they met. So, Feng divorced her and took her to court on the grounds that he was tricked into marriage under false pretenses based on her manufactured looks.
It gets worse. The truly crazy part is that he won the lawsuit: a judge awarded Feng $120,000 in damages citing that the marriage indeed took place under "false premises." The wife never told her husband about her plastic surgery, so the judge ruled in the father's favor. Unfortunately this seems to be one of those cases where everyone loses, especially the child.
