|'Crazy English' Divorce Settlement Gets more Crazy|

BEIJING: A few months ago, women's rights groups in China championed the cause of Kim Lee, who alleged that her ex-husband, Li Yang, founder of the Crazy English Company had frequently abused her.
She made these claims amidst a bitter custody battle over their three daughters.
In the court battle, Mr. Yang confessed to the abuse allegations. However, Mr. Yang has filed an appeal in the divorce settlement contending that he was also a victim of spousal abuse.
China Daily reports that, "Chinese 'Crazy English' teacher Li Yang has filed an appeal to a Beijing court over the divorce granted to his former wife, disagreeing with the domestic abuse charge and compensation order."
However, the case appears to have taken an even crazier turn. An eyewitness claims to have observed Ms. Lee’s appearance at the U.S. Consulate 'American Citizens Services' on Monday afternoon. She was accompanied by a daughter (oldest of the three daughters), who looks like the girl in the photo posted by the Dallas Blog.
Mrs. Lee was observed boasting of her divorce at the U.S. Consulate and filing paperwork to get a U.S. passport for her daughter so that she could take her daughter out of the country.
Nonetheless, an ACS official pointed out that her divorce hadn’t been finalized and no passport can be filed until such Chinese divorce paperwork gets completed.
In a strange twist, her daughter caused a loud banging sound when she unhooked a metal device attached to the wall. The eyewitness claims that the alleged Mrs. Lee showed no emotional reaction when the loud sound erupted. This would be odd, since victims of spousal abuse suffer from PTSD symptoms when in recovery, so they often become 'visibly shaken' when unexpected loud sounds occur.
The Dallas Blog notes that the eyewitness can't guarantee Mrs. Lee did indeed appear at the U.S. Consulate, but after reviewing photos on Google Search, the eyewitness noticed remarkable similarities in the appearances of the people the witness claims to have seen.
