Wanna bet the ex-girlfriend is trying to get back with him now that he won the lottery?  LOL

I saw the press conference and a reporter asked him who broke up with who.

She broke up with him, she better not comeback!!

He said he was heart brokenfor a couple weeks but he'll get over it, everyone laughed!!! lol

 

I like this guy, you can claim jackpots under a trust in Massachusetts but he's not scared.

He'll be Ok with the winnings, I'm sure!!

    As a former girl friend she is still entitled to the same amount of his winnings as she would be if she was still his girl friend which is nothing.  Being a friend is not the same as being married

      I Agree!    Unless this has been a long term relationship, which could turn into a "palimony".  Wink

          Definitely a date to remember for Mr. Sunny Singh.  He's the man! He's the man of the day for the people of Massachusetts.  How did he do that is one of the questions people would be asking on him.  Congratulations and be happy this Halloween season.

            He was only 22, how long could it have been?  Besides, "palimony" is a Californian thing.

                Years ago I lost a job and my girlfriend dumped me.  A few months later I got a new job that pays much higher.  Miraculously, she called me to reconcile and saying that it was really all her fault.  I said no to her and she really got mad.  To this day if I see her she won't talk to me.

                At 22 years old I would almost never recommend taking a lump sum.  But since he works at a bank until the end of the quarter, he can get some good advice hopefully.  Continued blessings to this man and his family for his hard work and dedication.

                I would say he was a smart man for taking the lump sum.  I have just been seeing too many of those Peachtree Financial and JJ Wentworth..."it's my money and I need it now!"...commercials. He won't have to use them by selecting the lump sum. I imagine a fair number of lottery winners who select annuity end up using such service, and in doing so, lose out on even more money.  I don't think the manner in which one selects payments will shield from making stupid mistake. I would prefer to take lump sum since we all know that taxes are going to go up in the next few years.  I would much prefer to have my money in my possession than to have a large number of remaining annuity payments that the Prez and Congress could pull a Hollande and tax at 75% like that guy is doing in France.  No thank you to that...it's my money and I want to keep as much of it as I can and pay the government only what is fair for me to pay (and it wouldn't be 75%, I can assure you of that!).

                Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                    Yea just about everyone has lived through a break up, but not many have lived through a JP win.

                            Seeing as his sister was the one who purchased the winning quick pick for him, I hope he's going to share the winnings with her.

                            If I was in his situation, I would split it with her 50/50.

                            After all, if he had purchased a quick pick, he would have almost certainly received a different number.

                              I was thinking the same thing Lotto Dreamer.

                              Although from his statements it appears he is going to be quite generous with his family, I'm sure he'll do the right thing.
