Lets see here......................Shacking up with gf for 10 years + getting her knocked up + baby daddy winning huge Powerball ticket + lawyers and lawsuits = Baby Mama drama. Yep it's simple math to me.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/11/09/couple-powerball-court-case/3486935/

PATERSON, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey man who won a $338 million Powerball jackpot, among the largest lottery winnings, is embroiled in a court fight with his former girlfriend over the money.

Pedro Quezada of Passaic was the sole winner of the Powerball drawing last spring, worth about $152 million after taxes.

His lawyer argues that Inez Sanchez has no claim to the money because the couple were never married.

Here is an interesting part of the article that I found:

Sanchez's attorney says that a large chunk of the lottery winnings is already gone, claiming $57 million has been sent to Quezada's native Dominican Republic, $5 million was given away, $300,000 was spent on the home in Clifton, and $20 million can't be located, the newspaper reported.
Hmmmmm..........Sounds like he threw away $20 million in a dumpster. I guess someone needs to go dumpster diving to check the dumpsters in the immediate area of the man's residence.

The only thing that would be funnier, is if he had an ex-wife, who decided that she wanted to come back. If it was over then, its still over! :banana:

Almost always, someone who has never had money at any level and wins the lottery, it ends badly. So many of them are just so stupid that they haven't the first clue on how to conduct themselves.

Same with some people that acquire inheiritance. Its even sadder, when the person who worked all their life for their money, leave it to someone that pi$$e$$ away.

According to that article, they had shared finances, so he will (rightly) have to share.
