Woman sued by her estranged Parents!
The woman from southern China, is being sued for $100,916 in “maintenance” by her birth parents.
Zhang has no relationship with her parents who left her to be raised by her father’s sister when she was two years old.
They had little to no interaction with their daughter over the years and now Zhang considers her aunt to be her mother.
Why did the parents sue after 27 years?
Zhang used her savings to buy an apartment for her cousin whom she grew up with. That when her parents suddenly reappeared in her life demanding she buy her biological brother, whom they had kept, an apartment as well.
When she refused her parents filed a lawsuit with a local court seeking money for parental maintenance.
the courts ruling?
The court ruled that Zhang has no obligation to buy property for her adult brother, however, it said that she must pay the maintenance, with the amount to be negotiated with the parents.

This applies regardless of estrangement or abandonment.The court’s ruling has caused outrage across China. The majority of people are highly critical of Zhang’s biological parents.

Below are a few comments by Chinese citizens on the case,
“Are they vampires? The father sucked up the blood of his sister, and now he and his wife want to drain the blood from their daughter.”
