High Maintenance

"Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned / Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned."

Dude, and his wife too!:
The mistress of a married Chinese businessman whose lover spurned her due to the economic downturn plotted to get back at her lover and his four other paid paramours.

The 29-year-old woman, identified as Yu, drove the man and four other kept women off a mountain precipice after the double sting of losing her income and getting dumped.

Identified as Yu, the woman was the first to be cast out from the married businessman's harem of five mistresses after he held a secret competition to decide which one of them to keep.

After realizing he needed to pare down to just one lover, the entrepreneur, identified as Fan, hired an instructor from a modeling agency to judge which mistress would stay on.

The women were assessed on looks, singing ability, and how much alcohol they could hold, according to

The women all had their rent paid and received a monthly allowance of around $730 from Fan.

After Yu was eliminated in the first round of the competition because of her looks, she decided to get back at Fan and the four other women vying for his money and affections.

She arranged a group sightseeing tour, telling the others it was a farewell outing before she returned to her home province.

She then piloted the car over a cliff on a winding road, killing herself and injuring the others.

Police in China initially thought the Dec. 6 crash was an accident, but learned of the contest in a letter Yu had written before the fateful trip.

...The other mistresses have all left him, and so has his wife.
