A 20-year-old Chinese man was imprisoned and nearly starved to death by his sugar daddy who did not want any hassle after he left the younger man.
The younger man, surnamed Liu, was locked in the apartment his lover rented for him in Chongqing for five days.
The term 'sugar daddy' started trending on Chinese social media after Chinanews.com broke the story.
Neighbors reported Liu to police after they saw him lying on the balcony, initially mistaking him for a thief.
Police arrived at the scene and rushed Liu to hospital.
