Former Powerball jackpot winner sued by ex-fiancé
Out of North Carolina, WECT reports that a woman who won a $188 million jackpot in Feb. 2015 is being sued by her ex-fiancé. Overall, it appears that there are some sour feelings left as her Ex is currently incarcerated and seeking compensation.
Previously, Marie Holmes opted to take a lump sum payment and after taxes received about $88 million. At the time, Holmes was dating Lamar McDow. Although McDow was technically on parole at the time awaiting drug trafficking charges, Holmes apparently lavished him with expensive gifts and an automotive repair business.
Now, the lawsuit alleges that Holmes gave away McDow’s personal property, clothes and sold his businesses without his authorization. On top of the property claims, McDow is seeking punitive damages.
