Remember the Wife That Was Sued By Her Husband For Having Plastic Surgery?
Since 2012, the story of a Taiwan bride being sued for failing to alert her husband to her pre-nuptial body modifications has been shared broadly across the Internet.
Stories across the web (of lies) indicate that the husband, “Jian Feng” sued his wife following the birth of his children and the realisation that his wife bared no resemblance to the kids.

The Examiner reported the man successfully sued his misses for $120,000.
Turns out the whole thing, shockingly, was an internet hoax.
The picture in question was a photoshopped advertisement gone terribly terribly wrong. The model in the picture, Ye Wan Cheng, spoke to the BBC about the impact of the meme on her life and career.
She says the children in the image are photoshopped and worries about the effect the virality of the image will have on them as they grow older. She also says that agencies and booking agents refuse to believe that she has not has plastic surgery and in effet, the meme has ruined her modeling career.
According to Taiwanese news sites, Ye Wan Cheng is now filing a lawsuit against the original advertisement agency for misappropriate use of the image.
