When a U.S. woman was accused of selling her child to the Chinese for a million dollars, the world took notice
On Sunday, the internet exploded with outrage after a U-M student was accused by her former roommate of selling a newborn to the China-based family.
On Tuesday, The New York Times revealed that China-born Jennifer Yang, 25, was forced to sell her newborn for $1 million, after her former boyfriend allegedly raped her.
Ms Yang’s allegations were first reported by the Daily News and the Associated Press.
Ms Huang, who had been married to Mr Yang for four years, was allegedly involved in the transaction and was allegedly able to buy her own infant with the baby’s proceeds.
The Daily News said that after her divorce from Mr Yang, Ms Huang was living with her mother in China, where she was allegedly forced to marry a man in her 50s.
Ms Wang, a mother of two, was reportedly the sole caregiver of her daughter.
On Monday, The Daily News reported that Ms Wang had previously been accused of being a prostitute in a story about the allegations against her, and had reportedly left her husband in 2015.
Ms Wong said the accusations were false and had been made by an angry Chinese man who did not know her.
Mr Yang denied all allegations and claimed that he had never been involved in any sex work.
Ms Chen, who is also a Ummah, told The Daily Nation that she had received threatening messages from a man who identified himself as her husband, who she said had threatened to kill her.
The woman said she had also been threatened with physical harm.
The case is being investigated by the University of Michigan, the Michigan State Police, the FBI and the U.M. Police Department.
