Chinese Billionaire Sued For Child Support By His 9-Year-Old Son

The world's richest people are no strangers to divorce and child support battles, but an ongoing divorce in China has one element we're not used to seeing: a 9-year-old suing his dad for child support.

Zhao Bingxian, one of China's richest businessmen, has been involved in a contentious divorce -- and one of the most expensive in Chinese history -- from wife Lu Juan since 2010.

According to Want China Times, Zhao, who is worth over 10 billion yuan, or $1.6 billion, has requested a reduction in child support payments, though his estranged wife says that he cut off financial support all together. In response, their 9-year-old son has filed a lawsuit against Zhao in order to seek financial support for himself and his mother.

Zhao isn't the only Chinese billionaire to face an expensive divorce. In November 2011, Wu Yajun lost the title of China's richest woman after a costly divorce from her husband. And last August, Florence Tsang Chiu-wing became a millionaire after her divorce from Samathur Li Kin-kan, the son of a property tycoon.
