A past Powerball lottery winner by the name of Lynn Anne Poirier from Florida was ordered by a court to pay her ex-lover $291,000 of her $1 million Powerball win because they were together at the time of her win. Lynne has now, however, filed for bankruptcy.
Lynne is 62-years-old. She hasn’t listed her ex-boyfriend as a creditor in the bankruptcy case she filed recently in Orlando. She told journalists that the case is still “pending.” It has been almost nine years to the day when Lynne won her prize. She kept all the winnings despite a promise she made with her then-boyfriend.
It was actually her boyfriend who gave her $20 to buy lottery tickets where one of them ended up being the winning one. She went to the Sunoco gas station in Oviedo to get the tickets and made an agreement that they would both share whatever they had won.
Lynne denies this and says that there was no agreement made and they had broken up at the time of their win. She says she was even engaged to another man at that time of the win. She said they met outside the store simply by luck when he offered to give her some cash to cover her lottery tickets.
On the 4th of February, a County jury ordered Lynn to pay her ex-boyfriend $291,000 after the court came to a conclusion that there was indeed an unwritten contract with her ex-boyfriend.
But since the court order, Lynne hasn’t sent her ex any money yet. Her ex’s lawyer, Sean Sheppard, went back to court asking for an additional $150,000 to cover the interest that her ex-boyfriend would have accrued since Lynne won the money in 2007. He also wants to ask for $200,000 on top of that to cover his client’s lawyer fees.
At the time of her win, Lynne walked away with $750,000. Her liabilities now include owning money to her ex, and she owes Navient, a Pennsylvania collection agency money, as well as $45,000 for her lawyer’s fees.
This looks like quite a sticky situation.
