Li Yang, a celebrity teacher in China who founded "Crazy English," allegedly threatened to kill his American wife, Kim Lee, after a second hearing for their divorce, according to Lee yesterday.

Lee posted a picture on her Weibo yesterday, showing text messages allegedly sent by Li on April 9, in which Li called her "a total bitch."

"In America you should be killed by your husband with gun. This is the real American way. You're so lucky to be in China!" Li wrote in the message, according to the Weibo entry.

"I will not be a victim! I am a woman. I am a mother. You break laws but I must keep reporting to police. I struggle so the women behind me won't have to!" said Lee on her microblog.

He's so lucky he's not in the US!! Making terroristic death threats like that would get him 20 years in prison!! Maybe that would teach him not to beat up women, the damned coward!!
