I dunno why, but this amused me... Is that wrong?

It's mainly the story from the first link below followed by the second story from almost a year later about 50 (as of 1998) year old Mike Antonucci, a winner of a £2.8 million (roughly $5.6 million US) lottery jackpot. I was just going to copy and paste the stories in full but I think for space sake, this is probably a better idea.

First the "happy" story on how he married a 22 year old former glamor model and everything was great.

Here's a quote that amused me: "Before anyone else says it... I will," says Mike as he gives her handanother gentle squeeze. "She is no gold-digger. "Anyway," he laughs, "Idon't care if she is after me for my money."

Then a year later... Not so much. I'm sure you can guess how things turned out. It lasted a whole three months partially because he wasn't getting any. I guess he started caring when he wasn't getting anything out of it. >_>

I guess she didn't like being called a "gold digger" because then almost another year later she successfully sued a magazine that called her that.

And for closure, a story from last year about Mr. Antonucci going back to work. At least he seems to be doing alright, fine with where he is and not completely broke living on the streets or dead.

EDIT: Then I notice why I didn't see an option to edit this before, I was viewing it from the "view comments" section. Roll Eyes Now if only I could edit my comment..

So he's living in the streets because of a foreclosure? I don't get it...

There's a fixed one. No he's not living in the streets, he lives in a £300,000 waterfront apartment as the last story says.

"While he sleeps on a lilo on a bare wooden floor in the scruffy backstreet office above his nightclub, his wife Kelly Arkins has moved her family into their pounds 300,000 house and changed the locks so he can't get in. In addition, Kelly would like a divorce - with, naturally, pounds 150,000 in cash, the mansion, pounds 300 a week in maintenance payments and a pounds 27,000 trust fund for her six-year-old daughter's school fees. " - A trust fund for *her* 6 yr old daughter? Jeeze, what a skank!

But she ain't no gold digger and she'll sue if you say she is!

At least he seemed to have got his place back if that's the same one mentioned in the last article.
