There is a bizarre case out of China were a man, Jian Feng, was awarded $120,000 (£75,000) in a court settlement after alleging that his wife did not reveal that she had had cosmetic surgery — a fact that he said he discovered when she had an ‘incredibly ugly’ child.
Jian Feng said that his wife tricked him into believing that she was a natural beauty but his daughter revealed that she was not. He insisted that “Our daughter was incredibly ugly, to the point where it horrified me.” Nice.
What I fail to understand is the basis for the lawsuit, even in China. He reportedly alleged that his wife cheated on him (I can’t imagine why) and that the child looked like neither of its parents. Putting aside the assumption that a marriage can be premised on looks, his argument on the infidelity seems to contradict his argument on heredity.
He was granted a divorce in addition to the settlement.
