A DOCTOR in Singapore, who was caught sleeping with a married woman, offered to pay her husband S$200,000 (RM513,000) to cover up the matter, Oriental Daily and Sin Chew Daily reported.
The man also went down on his knees to apologise to the husband.
The husband, however, chose to divorce his wife, saying he could not accept her being unfaithful to him.
The businessman, named only as Tan, said he found lecherous text messages in her smartphone in April and hired a private investigator to track her, including installing a spy application in her phone.
“Keywords such as pantyhose, skirt, rope and tie surfaced,” he said, adding that the investigator took pictures of his wife and the doctor dating at bars. The wife, after the affair was exposed, admitted they had read pornographic novels together but insisted they never had sex.
> A 32-year-old man in Zhejiang, China, reportedly hated his mother’s looks and refused to meet her when she came from her village to visit his newborn daughter.
The woman braved a long and tedious bus ride, bringing along some home cooked delicacy and hand-sewn baby clothes.
However, her numerous calls to her son went unanswered and she ended up sitting on the street, Kwong Wah Yit Poh reported.
She was in tears when she related to passers-by that her son once said to her that “you are too ugly; stop coming and embarrassing me”.
