Must have been low quality (or waaaay overpriced) to spend $400G on any "habit" and still live. Thud

    I sympathize with her, at 16 that is a lot of money for a child to handle.  If her parents were able to control it by setting up a trust fund that allowed her money in increments until she reached 18 or 21 would have been great.  The parents may  not have that authority or were not responsible parents.

      Here  is a story about Michael Carroll who won £9.7 Million (tax free) in 2002 and he was broke four years later in 2006.



      This is interesting, he was threatened by gangsters, who claimed they were from the IRA, and demanded money.

      We all get a lot out of lotteries!

        Yeah, she certainly blew a lot on blow.

        You can't predict random.

          She is old enough to have kids and old enough to have millions of dollars.   Plus, she is clearly an adult now.   Criticism of her is fair game.   From the article, she would likely agree with everything said about her here.

            She had bad people around her that were unable to lead her down the right path

                im interested how a trust fund for the kids , gets raided by her boyfreind? surely thats why you set up trust funds. so only the lawyer guy running it gets to raid it.


                anyhow, till we have won the jackpot, we cant really judge.  personally i was thinking at 16 she should have had a trust fund set up for herself. and gone to university; studied something she was interested in.  not for the career , but for the personal development. i guess they dont have college degrees in drug taking tho.


                we should all  learn from it, incase we ever win.
