‘Chinese Casanova’ exposed as 17 girlfriends flock to hospital bedside
A man in China has left a trail of presumable heartbreak when his 17 girlfriends all showed up to visit him
A man in China has left a trail of presumable heartbreak when his 17 girlfriends all showed up to visit him in hospital after he was injured in a car crash.
According to Chinese media reports, the so-called “Chinese Casanova” dated all the women at the same time, stringing some along for months, even years, without their knowledge.
The man, identified only by his surname Yuan, allegedly had a child with one of the women while another was reportedly planning their wedding, the South China Morning Post noted, citing the local Xiaoxiang Chen Bao newspaper.
However, his romantic pursuits fizzled when doctors contacted his loved ones after he was involved in an accident on March 24.
“I was really worried when I heard that he was in hospital,” Xiao Li, who claims she has been dating Yuan for 18 months, was quoted as saying.
“But when I started seeing more and more beautiful girls show up, I couldn't cry anymore.”
The story went viral in China as the police launched an investigation into allegations of fraud against Yuan.
According to China Daily, he is accused of stealing more than $50,000 from his ex-wife and conning some of his girlfriends out of funds.
