BEIJING, Dec. 15 (Xinhua) -- A Beijing court on Thursday heard divorce proceedings brought against China's famous "Crazy English" teacher Li Yang for domestic abuse, but the case did not close after efforts to reconcile failed.

The hearing was attended by both Li and his wife, Kim Lee, at the Beijing Chaoyang District Court, sources with the court said.

Before entering the court, Li told the media that he would be willing to reconcile and request custody of his children.

But his American wife Lee said after the hearing that she would insist on divorce. She also said Li had agreed on divorce during the hearing.
