Before and after: Feng's wife spent over $100,000 in plastic surgery to modify her appearance

Many people are used to returning merchandise if they find that it doesn't match their needs. But one Chinese man went a step further, and returned his wife – getting $120,000 in a court settlement.

­Jian Feng, living in Northern China, has filed for divorce from his wife after he found their newborn child to be “incredibly ugly,” arguing that his wife tricked him into the union by appearing to be a beautiful woman when she was instead ugly. 

"I married my wife out of love, but as soon as we had our first daughter, we began having marital issues. Our daughter was incredibly ugly, to the point where it horrified me," reports

Feng, after first accusing his wife of cheating, since the child girl did not look like him, was later confronted by his wife with the bitter truth – cosmetic surgery. 

It was an apparent case of false advertising, as it turned out that that his once-beloved had spent over $100,000 in plastic surgery to modify her appearance.

Appalled by the fruit of their loins and by the fact that his wife had never revealed that surgery had enhanced her looks, Feng took the matter to court and won $120,000 in a settlement.

The reaction in social media to the story has largely been in support of Feng.

“When you are in a true relationship, you tell your spouse everything. Past present and future – if not, then you don't respect them” one male commented on Facebook.

The female audience has also largely sided with Feng. “Of course I would – if you start a relationship with a lie, where does it end?” one woman asked.

The number of feminists and sissified males who think the poor guy did wrong is pathetic. And all the females crying out, we do surgery because of guys just proves, their stupidity.Had it been a poor guy saying he was rich, all the moral police would have killed him many times over.

It looks pretty legit.

This story is untrue, and basic internet research would show this to be the case. Snopes, HuffPo and various other outlets have already covered this; it's a hoax.
