(Newser) – Lynn France knew her husband was having an affair. But when she typed the other woman's name into Facebook, what she found was a whole lot worse: 200 wedding photos. At Disney World. With her husband dressed as Prince Charming. The story gets weirder. France had already confronted the girlfriend—who told her they were engaged—but was reassured by her husband that he wouldn't go through with it. He did, in January 2009.

Now, John France isn't denying that the Disney affair took place. Rather, he's insisting that his 2005 marriage to Lynn, a seaside wedding on Italy's Amalfi Coast, "was never legally proper." And weirder still: Lynn says that three months ago her husband took their 2-year-old son from her arms, saying he was going to give him some milk...and left. John took their two boys to Tampa, where he currently lives with his new wife and, according to his attorney, is seeking custody of their children, reports the AP. Lynn France called 911, but as in most parental custody disputes, there's little she can do but prepare for a court fight—and get glimpses of her children, ironically, on the same Facebook page where she found those fairy-tale wedding photos.
