Man Wins $30 Million Lottery After Getting Dumped by Girlfriend
Time heals all wounds when suffering from heartbreak, but we’re willing to bet $30.5 million helps too. A 22-year-old Hyannis, MA, man recently won a sizable lottery jackpot after getting dumped by his girlfriend several weeks before.
Sandeep “Sunny” Singh won a $61 million Mega Millions jackpot on Tuesday. He’ll split the prize with another winner from Fresno, California, and earn himself a cool $30.5 million. After taxes, he’ll be left with about $16.1 million.
What makes the win even sweeter is that Singh was recently jilted by his girlfriend, but he’s not worried about his ex resurfacing now that he’s an instant millionaire.
“She broke up with me, but right now, I’m not really worried about it,” he said. “I was heartbroken at first, but now I’m getting over it.”
Singh currently works two jobs to help his family pay the bills. He plans to share his winnings with his family, put himself through school in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree in business and donate some to charity.
Think his ex-girlfriend is kicking herself for being too hasty?
