A property developer described in an online diatribe as “scum” and a “sex con artist” will put his life through the mud in an attempt to sue his illegal lover for defamation.
Barry Wang claims he was unfairly portrayed in an online public chat app when his deranged lover, Melbourne real estate agent Jessie Qin, let the Chinese business community in Melbourne know what she really thought of him.
Documents filed in the County Court of Victoria allege that Ms Qin logged into the Australian Village Gossiper – a Chinese-language WeChat group – to vent her spleen.

Barry Wang claims he was wrongly portrayed in an online public chat app
WeChat boasts that it has a billion users around the world who use it for social media and messaging.
“Melbourne Old Scum Divorcee, Rampant Sex Scammer in the Name of Dating and Marriage,” started a diatribe.
Ms. Qin claimed to have met Mr. Wang three years earlier before meeting him under the assumption that he was divorced.
The couple had joined the Sugar Baby website Seeking Arrangements and agreed to have a casual sexual relationship.
When Mr. Wang shoved her off in April last year, Ms. Qin allegedly punched WeChat.
“He pretended to be in love, loved people and animals, and was at peace,” she wrote, before reaching her point.
“(In fact he’s a cunning boy, good at brain games, and behind your back to have questionable relationships with various girls, always claiming he was single), to give you the wrong impression.”
Ms. Qin allegedly accused Mr. Wang of being “a demon dressed as an angel.”
“In fact, he is a PUA expert, cheating on several girls for their affection and sacrifices, and even makes the girls buy him stuff,” the message reads.
“He’s a scum who will immediately free himself after successfully winning the girls’ affection through trickery!”
A fake profile that Barry Wang said was defamatory

Legal papers contain a series of text exchanges that the couple shared during their brief sexual relationship.
Wang is suing Ms. Qin for defaming him in more than a dozen ways.
His subpoena alleges that the post falsely suggested that he was an immoral, a con man, a sexual predator and that women should submit to his will while drunk.
The businessman went on to claim that Ms. Qin continued to double up on him and hit the chat app again the following month to label him as “scum.”
“Scum men are common in modern society and exposing them has become a recent trend,” it said.
“From the beginning to the end, the girl has no way of discovering that he is deliberately cheating affection and sex from them.”
Though not mentioned in the rants, Mr. Wang claimed he was easy to identify thanks to screenshots of their posts and the posting of his image.
Barry Wang reportedly sent Jessie Qin the above message that led to them meeting
On May 31, Mr. Wang claimed that Ms. Qin posted a fake online dating profile with his image on an online dating app.
“My name is Barry Wang, I’m scum, scum and scum. A scum male is originally scum! Love to eat and play for free!’ read the profile.
In documents filed as part of Ms. Qin’s defense, she refused to accept that her alleged actions were defamatory.
‘I tell the truth, I don’t like to make up stories. If he thinks he’s been hurt, I think I’ve been hurt more than he did,” she said.
Ms. Qin claimed that Mr. Wang had chased her for sex from the start with a text that read, “snake suits chicken and they will have a good life together.”
Again, Ms. Qin painted Mr. Wang as a rotten womanizer.
“He’s not a famous or popular person in Melbourne, not many people know him,” she said.
That will all change when the case goes to court in Melbourne next week.
