Its not everyday that the Lela reporter comments on issues outside our African borders, but this one was just too good to pass pass. Things are happening in the world and sometimes they can just be described as hilarious and outright weird. 

According to, 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. 

Now you must be asking yourself, how ugly are these kids for this guy to react in this way? People usualy say all kids are sweet and cute and what what, but clearly the ones involved in this story must have been something to watch. 

"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 US$120,000 in a settlement.
