WHOA! Man Successfully Sues Wife Over Ugly Children

A Chinese man divorced and then sued his ex-wife for giving birth to what he called an extremely ugly baby girl, the Irish Times reported.

Initially, 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, The Huffington Post reported.

The kicker? He won. 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.”

UPDATE: According to the New York Post this story has been circulating for years on the internet and reports of Feng’s lawsuit against his wife were originally reported in European and US newspapers in 2004, but with no details of any adjudication or payout. While many have cast doubt on the wild tale, details of an alleged civil settlement were reported on Chinese Web sites last year and English-language media this week.

For those that are just judging this dude, this is not occurring in America. It's in China, where you can only have one child. So he is stuck with a child that he doesn't want. Think about only being able to have one child that will represent your heritage and lineage, and that child does not carry physical feature that can represent your family. It is a disgrace to the husband's side of the family to be tricked by that lady and have an heir that will not carry their good looking genes on. BTW that family above is not the man and his wife. The man and his wife actually only has a daughter. The guy is actually decent around a 7 or 8, and his family is rich so that is one reason why he sued because he cannot have any other child now for the rest of his life in China.

disagree with that. if he really love her wife he should accept her for whoever she is though she's done something wrong. Plastic surgery or a simple lied can make them break a part. So imbecile. its just an ego dude!!!

The reality: Tracing this story to its source was a difficult task; the earliest reference we could find was not – as one might think – in Chinese media, but published by a Pakistani newspaper in 2004. In that piece, Feng was awarded 538,000 yuan ($88,000) by the judge.

The story went relatively quiet until it was repeated by the Macedonian International News Agency (MINA) in 2012, with the settlement jumping almost 200,000 yuan (inflation takes its toll even on fake news stories). Around that time, the story was also repeated by many of the usual suspects, including the Daily Mail and Russia Today

This month, the story resurfaced on Buzzfeed-lite gossip blog CocoaFab, in a post which referenced the Irish Times as a source. As far as we can tell, the Irish Times has never covered this story. There is a post in the Irish Examiner, published in October 2012 which repeats the same story as laid out in by MINA. 

After the story again went viral this month, the Huffington Post updated its original 2012 coverage with a post warning that the Feng family’s plight was most likely made up. The HuffPo based this conclusion on the fact that a photo often attached to the story – showing a pair of attractive parents with non-conventionally attractive children – was actually part of an advertising campaign by a Taiwanese plastic surgery. 

In our research, we discovered that the other image often used to illustrate the story – a before and after shot of an Asian-looking woman – comes from the website of a Japanese plastic surgery, not any Chinese news organisations or a South Korean surgery where the wife is generally alleged to have had her surgery. 

A fake image does not a fake story make however, and plenty of blogs (including us) use images for illustrative purposes only. 

After digging into endless rehashes of the same story, we were able to track down a 2012 Xinhuaarticle in which the reporter actually bothered to do some reporting. Like us, the reporter was perplexed that all the coverage of this Chinese story was on foreign media. Eventually Xinhua managed to find the original court case, which took place in Heilongjiang in 2002. 

In the actual case, Feng’s wife did give birth to a child which looked nothing like him, and he diddemand a paternity test, but she refused. Feng, assuming his wife had been unfaithful, threatened divorce, and this is when she claimed to have had extensive plastic surgery. Though the couple did eventually divorce, and the court found in Feng’s favour, it was due to his wife’s infidelity, rather than any plastic surgery “trickery”. 

In a statement to Chinese reporters, a court official who worked on the case said he barely heard mention of the plastic surgery which was supposedly the heart of the matter. The settlement granted to the husband was a usual divorce settlement, nothing to do with ugly babies or being deceived by plastic surgery.

If he truly loves his wife, he would accept her for who she is. Warts and all. This guy is so superfluous.

I AM CONFUSE ABOUT THIS ISSUE,,, and I have 5 points to talk about this,,, POINT no:1. This news can be false.. POINT no:2. As we all know nowadays media's like this, creat like this type of news,, & who ever interfear in it & just tick'' LIKE, or DISLIKE, it's a point for they business,, & each point is MONEY for them... but if it's true'' then my accurate point start from 3rd point.. Why should we all talk about BEAUTIFUL & UGLY,,, don't we all know that whether'' we are beautiful or ugly ( WE) are Human being,, do any one of us relizes that???   POINT 4. If his children is Ugly because of his wife gentes,, in that case, what about her father & mother?? don't this man know's about this before he get married to her?? or he sees any of her photos before??? if it not, Is'' he is not intrest to know until he has'' three children with her!!!...  The 5th Main Point which related to me & every  (HUMAN BEING) If this man, say's that his children is UGLY,, then what's make him to feels that'' he is beautiful??? But If he subrated him'' as beautiful & his own children is EXTREMELY UGLY, because of his children was born to him as UGLY, & he sued his WIFE for that!!,, Then imagine all the (UGLY PEOPLE) in this WORLD ??  what will he think about them?? or he is see all the (UGLY HUMAN BEING) as assumption some kind of speciesists ?? If it is that case,, Then he should not lived with norment HUMAN BEING,, and the JUDGED made a big mistake by his judgment saying that this man is doing right,,, then the judged is'' the same as this man....

The older daughter looks quite pretty to me.  If there's an ugly child, it's the son who looks like a budding sumo wrestler who woke up on the wrong side of the bed that day.  And the father??? If he's unhappy about his children's appearance, he should look in the mirror.  He contributed 50% of their genes and it shows.  What a blind, egotistical, arrogant creep!

What happen with the judge to let him win?? It's not like his wife is unfaithful, she just did the legal plastic surgery. What up with his children for not beautiful?? His genes are in them too, he should also be responsible for the children's beauty too.

EmmaGray

he says that they started having marital issues after their first daughter was born... but the son is clearly older in that picture, and with similar features....

of course, hes a /man/ and I mean, men are the only real people right? the boy has other value but the GIRL

this makes me so angry. the poor children, to have to hear this from their own father, and how could a judge have possibly agreed with him? -.-

Beauty comes from the heart not sight.a person might be ugly to someone but the same person might be the most beautiful person for another. Tats called love. the kids might be ugly to others but they should be beautiful in the eyes of their parents. To say ones children ugly is the cruelest n meanest thing a human can ever put into words..

what ever people... say what u want... i feel bad for the kids... but how many times he must of told her how beautiful she is... how beautiful her smile is... how beautiful her eyes are... he just got the club girl, and the light didnt get turned on until 4 kids later... people want to act like this man is shallow. but they might have had problems before all this and the 100k of doctor work, might have been the straw that broke his back... Everyone knows how that race is with genes. and making the family line look better. Only thing to feel bad about are the kids, knowing they daddy called them ugly... but court records are public info.. do u think he went everywhere talking about this..  He just did what many men wanted to do.

I say the man is crazy, to even think of such thing, first to sue his wife because of facial surgery and second of all to call his children ugly.  Let me just say this all of us may have the beautiful skin, hair and nice body and able to walk in those heels now. but what happen when that appearance starts to fade, you 70 years old wrinkles in your face you wearing orthopedic shoes or walking with a cane or walker? what happens to him then  for him to call his daughter Ugly so what ! there comes a time in his life he will go through some changes before he leave this world. I have worked with patient who were rich and had money and nice homes and now look no longer sleeping on that $20,000 mattress you bought or eating out of your fine china now you laying in  hospital bed eating out of carry out trays and drinking your liquid out of plastic cups  so needs to be careful what he says because that same ugly daughter may be the one who have to hand him that last glass of water before he leaves here or wipe his behind when he can no longer do it himself

There is nothing right in this case. Grounds of accusation, lies amongst spouses, large fine for something that will undoubtedly affect the kids an enormous amount. The only people who are innocent in my eyes are the kids.

And where did he get the idea he looked any better?  He's probably alienated his kids for life.  Hopefully, he'll live to regret what he said about them and what he did to their mother.  What an arrogant, insensitive creep.

The little girl on left looks very pretty.

The children are not that ugly at all.. They are just Chinese.... if these children look ugly to you then all Chinese look ugly including you.... you better think.....You made your vows for better or for worse..... but you only took the " for richer part" .....At least your wife knows that you only married her because of how she looks....and not for what she really is....Let go of an unworthy father... At least you have 3 valuable children......

FAKE!  this story was fabricated by a Chinese TV reporter. The first hint that it is fake came from this picture. Who has a family with 3 kids in China nowadays? Then the man looks very much like one Korean Soap opera actor. The reporter made up a story using pictures from a plastic surgery practice.  The reporter met his goal of getting interest and also raising awareness that one remodeled nose will not be passed on, your genes are what there are so you better be clear with the person would plan to have kids with!

@general jugz The lineage falls on the men in the family, not the woman. For the lineage to go on they would have to produce a boy.

@general jugz

In the picture the man has both a son and a daughter.  If what you said is true, which I heard before,  this proofs that this is bogus. Also, according to SNOPES.COM, this is totally false.

@Meighn you need to realize in China you can only have a certain amount of kids, so you want those kids to be the best that you can get. It's not in America. Plus in Asian countries your physical appearance matters a lot because it also represents the type of family you're from.

RussellJohnson

@reemaba disagree with that. Yes if he loves her he loves her.. but keeping a secret like that? That's like marrying someone, then later finding out you can't have kids because they had a sex change and u didnt know about it. Secrets, secrets, secrets. Who likes them withheld and then finding all that out for yourself. No matter who u are.. u gotta get upset.

@Peter Hien Trust me it aint fake. They are doing so much in plastic surgery especially in Korea. Have of them popstars have had surgery. It's crazy.

@saeed_rn It doesn't matter, moral is its VERY common for asian women to perform surgery.  They look up to the ideal image of what is expected in women in their culture.  In fact, i have a malasian friend who told me that every girl (depending on the family wealth) has a birth right to get eye surgery.  Eye surgery is the most typical surgery that is performed in Asia.  It's similar to the quinceneara ceremony tradition. And men think that its only american women who get surgery, its all about image and being light skinned in the culture of women over there

@SMoreauEsq That is not a photo of the man and his wife and their children. It's an ad showing how plastic surgery can cause the family to not resemble each other.

@superprincess1411 Oh no it's not their fault, you should never put that on to an innocent child. I wouldn't ever hold that against a child because of their mother's doing.

@DeniseWilliams2 It's different if she had the surgery and told him about it. If she was honest and let him know about it beforehand and then married her, he would not have won the lawsuit. The most he could do was divorce her. But she didn't. She was dishonest.

@mylsdems Oh my god, your comment is incredibly racist. All Chinese people look the same? Of course Chinese are more attractive than others. It has nothing to do with them being Chinese.

@mylsdems basically - the start of beauty globally is WHITE - and as you can see with what she did to her eyes as the mother she was trying to meet that aesthetic. 

The father has features that would be classified as atypical of chinese men. He does not look like Jet Li or Jackie Chan, and he was trying to find a woman who could be that elite suitor who would fulfill his desire to maintain that quasi European aesthetic.

@JacFischerLougheed actually you're wrong this is a real story and if you are wealthy enough you can pay the government to have more than one kid. please get your facts straight.

@iHowl @DeniseWilliams2 Since when is cosmetic surgery something you have an obligation to "fess up" to before marriage?  Did he ask her about it before marriage? I doubt it.  So she didn't lie about it.  It's not like she was hiding illegitimate children or had the AIDS virus.  

The guy said himself he married her out of love.  The poor woman probably believed him. Big mistake!  He only valued her as a trophy wife, a status symbol to fan his own vanity. 

iHowl

@SMoreauEsq @iHowl @DeniseWilliams2 Yes, he did say he married out of love. Trust and honesty make a relationship, especially when it concerns love. She was not honest and thus broke the trust.  She was willing to marry him and begin a family. Marriage is not a joke, and if there is dishonesty, it ruins the marriage. She was not willing to be upfront and brought this on. Maybe you're OK with dishonesty, but many of us are not, especially in  relationship. She did not give him any option. Maybe if she had been honest when it came to having kids, then he could have went through with it or not. She was selfish at best.
