This is the definition of more money more problems!

$1.3 Billion Jackpot

The family of a man who won a massive lottery jackpot is now suing him.

The unidentified Maine resident won an incredible $1.3 billion in the Mega Millions lottery.

However, once the winner found themselves embroiled in a legal dispute with their own family, things have subsequently gotten worse.

The winner's family has accused him of breaking pledges he made in case he won large on the lottery.

These allegedly included paying for his father's medical care and creating a trust fund worth a million dollars.

Furthermore, the father has retaliated by accusing his daughter's mother, Sara Smith, of violating a non-disclosure agreement by telling the rest of the family about the victory prior to their daughter becoming eighteen in 2032.

The ticket was bought in the Maine town of Lebanon, and the victory was among the biggest in US history, according to the Independent.

The winner's identity has remained a secret, but as time has gone on, the process has only gotten more difficult.

According to court records that the Daily Beast was able to get, in a number of cases filed on May 10, each party claims that the others have committed wrongdoing.

Smith asserts that Doe disclosed his victory, in spite of the winner's accusation, which is named as John Doe in court records.

Her lawyers argue that this disclosure 'shatters the remaining shards of this suit'.

Doe's father, meanwhile, has asserted that he was the one who disclosed the victory and offered suggestions for how to divide the profits.

In court documents the father wrote: “February or March of 2023, my son came to my house in [REDACTED], and informed me and my wife that he won a large amount of money in the Maine State Lottery.

“I understand that my son has stated that he told me nothing about his money ‘other than the simple fact that I had won.’ That is not true.”

Though his son had promised to share it, the father insisted he had never asked for any money.

These allegedly included purchasing the home where his father reared him, establishing a $1 million trust fund for his father, building him a garage filled with vintage automobiles, and paying for his medical bills.

However, the father continued by saying that he had broken all of his promises and that their relationship had rapidly "deteriorated."

Doe, on his part, claims that his father is trying to reveal who he is.

The matter is still pending.
