After reading the articlle I do not see where the need was for the reporter to give a rundown on her life history.

Would anyone here wish to have their life history reported if you won? I have too many bones rattling in my closet to have that happen. Hiding Behind Computer Green laugh

You may have noticed that I have resisted posting any of the very intrusive stories and photos floating around the news media over the past week, despite many people here egging me on to do it.  I thought this article gave just the right balance, and yes, the background information was essential for the reader to understand the story.  So I believe there was nothing overly-intrusive about this story, and in fact it is helpful.  You may, of course, disagree.

    Here is a BIG mistake

    "The other Facebook message from her said: "Listen, as you can all imagine, there are a ton of messages coming in, & there is so much to do. Please send 1 message if you have a request or pitch or plea, OR post your kind wishes or requests here on the wall.

    "I promise to read them all & even if it takes a month to go through, all of your messages will be acknowledged. Please be patient, & respectful of privacy, don't be rude. Thnx."

    Why would you EVEN put that on FACEBOOK??? I agree with everyone else - DELETE your page and just resign up under another name or use a friends page to talk to people.  She just invited the ENTIRE world to ask her for money!!! Why would you acknowledge anyone, much less EVERYONE?

    I guess I don't understand this NEED to put your life on Facebook - Blue Thinking

      I heard that the facebook page isn't even hers, that it is just a spoof.  I think that sounds more sensible than the other, but I have been known to be wrong.

        That would be an MEAN scam- reply to people who are asking for money and tell them you will deposit money in their account and ask them for their account #!!!

              Type best case sinario is she gets to walk away and live him in the virtual cold,

                           worse case sinario is she has to share a given amount with the bum

               

                           ethier way the only ones to profit will be the lawyers in the long run

               

              on further thought who gives a BLOODY BLEEP if the facebook page is hers or not

                Mr. Lahti is happy he won't have to pay child support? WHAT A LOSER!!!!!!

                I hope he doesn't get a dime , and still has to pay child support.

                If she does have to give him some money I hope she sues for child support in the same amount.

                THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO REASON TO BEAT UP A WOMAN,

                ON A PERSONAL NOTE, I HOPE HE GOES TO JAIL AND GETS A TASTE OF HIS OWN MEDICINE.

                I read that too and said to myself "wow what an azzhole"..

                 

                Cant believe that was the first thing on his mind

                 

                If it was me, the first thing I would say would be "well im happy that my children will be taken care of for life"...

                  Coin Toss, even if those people were working (collecting a salary) and putting the money in the bank (and collecting interest), they should not be broke, coming back, and asking for more. Now, depending upon one's circumstances, if he/she lost a job, and depending upon debt analysis, there is a possibility they could live off of $1 million (I guess this is after taxes).

                  If those people were retired and collecting a pension and social security (depending upon their ages), and having received $1 million dollars, there is no way they should be broke, period. Who in their right mind receive $1 million dollars, spends all of it, and have the audacity to ask for more: friends/relatives/strangers? What gives here?

                  Finally, depending upon where a person lives and collecting even approximately $33,000 a year is not bad, depending upon personal circumstances, too. Some cities are more expensive than others; some are a little bit cheaper.

                  See Ya!-- Bye, bye!  When you win, may you glow as brightly as theSun Smiley

                    Amazing how people turn into monsters when money is introduced into the equation.  On one of the "Lottery Changed My Life" shows, the winner Felipe Pena from New Mexico was so upset about how his mother had turned against him after he won the lottery.  He was brought to tears as he talked about he loved his mother so much and how she raised him as a singe mom - now she won't even talk to him because she's upset that he didn't give her more of his lottery winnings.

                     

                    Smh...

                      I don't understand why people would be surprised that the husband would get a share.  It is very common for estranged husbands to be forced to share their jackpot wins with their wives.  I think I've even posted a story or two over the years about ex-wives getting a cut.

                      Frankly, if the woman was living AS a single mom, she should have made it official years ago and divorced him.  (Or vice-versa for him.)  She's probably kicking herself now that she didn't do it, but heck, those are the laws.

                        they have 2 kid daughters, and sense he gets to see them often, am sure family peaceful and civil before the win

                        ,     if he tryed to flatout steal half her winnings, am sure their be bad blood with the kids,  knowing their dad ripoffed their mom,

                        so am guesting out of love of the kids, dad won't get greedy, logic says keep the peace,

                        he may even  get a few million just to shut him up no doubt, but we never know, as their keeping their mouths shut, its just a shame she could of not claimed in a trust, and avoided the media world

                        i know i be happy for my kids knowing their set for life must likly

                         

                        also to "I do not see where the need was for the reporter to give a rundown on her life history."

                        fyi, people only Have Them Selfs to blame for any and all Media they get,  she could of claimed by having lawyers create legel entity's , hide behind the lawyer being the public face

                        But Nooooooooo, nearly everyone has to do it the hard way!,   if anything, todd being to nice to them, as must media are,  anyone who want's piracy atfer a major jackpot win can get it, its called Not claiming it your self,  not making your name open to the public, geez

                        the fact stands, she had a mug shot with a black eye was in fact  a public record!

                        , she was a major winner with her name out in public, ofc the media going to find all legal issue's she had with the law ,  their a site called the smoking gun, they Just spit out images of dumb crimals and other idiots getting arrested with full police report for our lolz,   attempting to elude the media  will fail the SEC they get your name

                         

                        Don't you Ever Dare bash reporters for doing their job

                        ,  fact is meda gets paid to get dirt on people,    no one forced the winners to claim out in the open, they packed Not to use a trust etc,  all future winners and past winners only have them selfs to blame , for any bad press they get reporting on their life details and runs in with the law

                        ,    the best winner  , is the winner  that hides in cloaking field called a trust or other legal entity with the lawyer being the face to the public,

                        she no doubt has a lawyer she paying, why she didn't make the lawyer, or packed a better one, to set up a trust is beyond me,

                              Maybe Holly and Chris Shaw who won the $258 million dollar Powerball can hook up for a nite on the town. He was missing teeth and she had a black eye i think they have the right chemistry,not to mention they are the same age 29 and rich now!See Ya!
