A 29-year-old man from Hunan, China, wants to sue his parents for not looking after him, Nanyang Siang Pau reported.
Kuang Zheng Xuan contacted the press urging them to introduce a free legal consultant to him as he wanted to take his parents to court for neglecting him, it reported.
Kuang, who lived with his parents and younger brother, was kicked out of the family home last month.
"I am not capable (of taking care of myself) so why can't my parents look after me as they are able to?" Kuang asked.
The daily reported that Kuang had worked various jobs including waiting on tables previously but decided to stop due to a host of reasons.
