Stars' Marriage Ends in Tears After 12 Days

    Another celebrity couple have broken up amid mutual accusations. The actress Lee Min-young says her separation from Lee Chan a mere 12 days after they tied the knot was due to his violent behavior, but the husband denies this.

    Lee Min-young’s lawyer Kim Jae-cheol on Monday said Lee Chan hit the actress in the stomach and nose during a quarrel in their car about the makeover of their new home on Dec. 19, two days after they returned from their honeymoon. The actress was 15 weeks pregnant at the time. Lee Min-young stared bleeding in the womb. She saw a doctor next day but miscarried and underwent surgery on Dec. 21, the lawyer said.

    The lawyer says the actress sustained multiple injuries including bruises on her left eye. He said she had been beaten by her husband several times before they married, adding he was collecting evidence of habitual violence.

    Lee Chan, who is also an actor, in a press release Monday said he and his wife slapped each other on the cheek during an argument. But he said the allegation that he kicked her stomach was "a complete lie."
