Ex-girlfriend sues $338m lotto winner for a share of the winnings after he dumped her



Just eight months after winning a $338million  Powerball jackpot, Pedro Quezada, 45, is being sued by his former live-in  girlfriend for a portion of the fortune.

During a press conference last March, Quezada  told reporters that he would buy his girlfriend, Ines Sanchez ‘whatever she  wants’ with the money. But now his lawyer is arguing that Sanchez doesn’t  deserve any of the winnings because the couple, who lived together for 10 years,  was never legally married.

Sanchez’s attorneys disagree. They say  Quezada  purchased the winning lottery ticket with money earned by the couple.  In 2006, Quezada and Sanchez jointly opened a bodega in Passaic, New Jersey,  which was run by Quezada’s son Casiano. Sanchez and Quezada have a child  together as well as children from previous relationships.

    Yes, he needs to pay up. They shared everything, a business and a child. With all that money why not share a portion and move on. Greed is something else.
