He wasn't in court yesterday. His lawyer said a flight delay meant Li couldn't get there in time from east China's Jiangsu Province. The lawyer said he would talk with his client to determine whether there would be an appeal.

Lee said she wouldn't stop Li seeing their daughters and would arrange for them to meet, if he wanted to see them.

Shouting out

"Divorce is not a happy thing," Lee told reporters yesterday.

She said she couldn't sleep the night before the verdict but hoped she would be able to sleep well in the future. She said she was satisfied with the court's decision.

Li became famous for creating the concept of "Crazy English," a method of shouting out words and phrases to memorize and practice the language. He claims to have taught millions of people to speak English since the early 1990s.

He once told reporters he married his wife not out of love but to research American child-raising techniques. He even told the media that wife-beating was normal in China.

The pair met in 1999 and were married in 2005 in Las Vegas, a few years after the birth of their eldest daughter.

Lee updated her Weibo microblog yesterday after the verdict, saying: "Believe that there's light at the end of the tunnel."
