This has got to be the most scandalous MMF love triangle ever, and the most epic visa extension FAIL all rolled into one!
According to the all-authoritative Shanghai Daily:
The 55-year-old Italian man, whose name was not identified, had planned to marry the mother of his lover, the Shanghai Exit-Entrance Administration Bureau said.
However, when he arrived at a local registry, it was discovered that his visa had expired and he was detained for 10 days before being deported.
The Italian came to Shanghai last October holding a traveling visa, met a local man, aged 29, and fell in love with him.
In order to stay with his lover and avoid complicated visa application procedures, he decided to marry the man’s mother, a 53-year-old widow, as this would entitle him to long-term residency, said the bureau.
But when the Italian and his lover’s mother went to a registry in Huangpu District last month, staff discovered that his visa had expired 80 days previously.
The mother insisted she had no idea her son and the foreigner were in a relationship, as she thought the Italian was her partner, according to the bureau.
Holy super kawwwww! You can’t make this shit up! And that’s not all.
Apparently, the Italian had been living with the son for a while, and all the neighbours were aware of the arrangement while the mom remained blissfully unaware that her “boyfriend” was more than just “friends” with her son.
Fortunately for him and unfortunately for the city of Shanghai, the visa bureau says the Italian remains welcome to return to the city in the future despite his detention and deportation. If anyone ever bumps into this douchebag, be sure to slap him around the face with a wet fish!
