A doting boyfriend became front page news when he stayed by his girl-friend's bedside while she was in coma for eight months.
It was only when the 22-year-old Lin Yingying woke up that the nasty truth came to light, reports UK daily Metro.
While everyone knew that the boyfriend spent a fortune, 200,000 yuans, for his girlfriend's treatment, little did the public know that her partner had beaten her up and the injuries that she sustained landed her in a comatose state.
The girl was scared to tell the truth but with her family's support she found the courage to tell her story of abuse and regular beatings.
On the fateful day, the girl was beaten up by her partner for buring some bread in the bakery that the duo ran together, reports the daily.
The girl has filed an official complaint.
