Things We Do For Love: Powerball Winner Spends $9 Mill To Bail Boyfriend Out Of Jail…Twice

August 10, 2015 ‐ By

You may remember back in February, we were all excited to learn that Marie Holmes, the 26-year-old, single mother of four, had won the Powerball lottery.

Holmes, of North Carolina, decided that she was going to accept her $188 million winnings in one lump sum, meaning she was awarded $127 million. After taxes, she received $88 million. And while Holmes announced that she had plans to pay her tithes and set up college funds for her children, she’s ended up doing something entirely different with her riches.

Shortly after she won the money, Holmes posted $3 million bond for her boyfriend Lamarr McDow. McDow was in jail, facing heroin trafficking charges. McDow was implicated after an investigation unearthed more than 8,000 bags of heroin.

But Holmes found herself behind bars too recently. Last month, police came to her home to arrest McDow who had violated conditions of his parole by missing curfew. When officers searched the house, they found McDow had a .45 caliber pistol and there was less than a half an ounce of the drug and paraphernalia in Holmes’ Brunswick County home.

She then spent an additional $6 million to get McDow out of prison. He was released with a GPS monitoring device.

Two other people in the house were also charged with simple possession. Three children were present at the time of the arrest, McDow said they were his children.

According to WWAY, Holmes and McDow are engaged. And they also reported that Holmes took to the news station’s Facebook page to respond to criticism about the story which has been reported, for the most part, on local news outlets

“What Y’all need to be worried about is Y’all money and not how I spend mine this is benefitting Y’all how? And no he’s no drug dealer or user but who are Y’all to judge anybody? I will definitely pray for Y’all because it’s much need…they talked about Jesus so I’m not surprised Y’all are talking about me but be blessed though,”

This morning, when I first read the story, I was trying to give Holmes the benefit of the doubt. There are plenty of Black men who are arrested for little to nothing. But 8,000 bags of heroin is not nothing, even if less than an ounce of marijuana is.

While we can certainly question Holmes’ choices in both men and behavior, we really don’t have any right to tell her what to do with her money.

If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s for people to count other folks’ money. No matter who that person may be. We are generally too concerned with what other people are doing. She is right in that our perception of her squandering money really doesn’t benefit anyone, particularly since it was never ours to begin with. Sadly, that’s what happens with lottery winners. We seek to learn how these lucky people are spending money we wish we had. And a single, Black mother supporting her alleged drug-dealing boyfriend is local news gold. As it gives the average Joe a chance to turn his nose up at the rich.

If Holmes wants to spend up her newfound fortune on a man, in and out of jail, that’s her decision to make. If some of us are honest with ourselves, if we had $3 or $6 or $9 million dollars to give, we’d likely be bailing our loved ones out of jail too. Truth be told, it’s easy to shake our heads and wag our fingers in disgust and disapproval; but we’ve all done crazy, foolish and even expensive things for love.

    I guess stupid really is as stupid does ,…….

  • God help us!

    She just got arrested for drugs after she won the money, Her boyfriend not husband mind you was dealing heroin! My son is in the drug division of and has to risk his life for these crazy people only to have them set free by a lotto winner! This country is going to hell!

  • “. . . 26-year-old, single mother of four .. . .”

    Yes indeed.

    “Stupid is as stupid does.”

    Even Forrest Gump knew that life basic.

  • First somebody I don’t care who talk to this woman an help her with her decision making process. Clearly she needs assistance. 9 million blown to get a worthless drug dealer out of jail that’s just retarded. The lawyer an judge who handled the case of her sorry ass drug dealing boy friend clearly took advantage of her an got paid..all that 9 million was not to get him free. If you don’t believe it ask to have the books checked.

  • Junie

    She won’t have a dime left, this is a sign that she plans on spending her money on this guy. I would have bailed him out and if he didn’t get his act right dump him. There would be a Trust Fund Set up for each child and money put away for myself. This guy is gonna leech all that money out of her. So sad.

  • Timeca

    Just crazy!! How about spending that money on buying your disabled child a new electric wheelchair or adding a ramp onto your home so your disable child as easy access to the home. How about paying for a nurse to come in and help take care of your disable child. Now the 3million gone down the drain because he was rearrested. 3 Million could have went into a college fund for the other kids. Just sad!! She is right about one thing its her money and she can do whatever she wants with it!!

  • gay fighter

    this comments are filled with Jealousy……yes she had 110million and she bailed her lover with 6million. who cares what her lover offense was? after everything was for money and now there is money. you people should just mind your businesses

  • tiatam

    Shoot. He may have turned her out so he can get all of her money. If she is dumb (…. and records show, well), she may one day be his biggest customer. If that ain’t already in the works

  • Ann

    As long as he showed up for his court dates, she didn’t lose the money.

  • Steve Kelly

    What a stupid fool……oh well good luck.

  • LaShada Newsome

    I think that people are speaking on her situation because she was lucky enough to have hit the lottery for her and her kids. So why put her kids as well as herself in harms way behind a man that is indulging in all this negative behavior. Even if she do not care about herself and what happens to her she needs to consider her kids. And she the same one that said she has 4 kids and one of them needs round the clock care…so maybe she needs to put her time and energy in her kids and not a man. Because a real man would not ask her to stand that type of bond for them anyway not behind something that can affect her and her kids. So yes it is her money and if she choose to spend all of it on bailing him out of jail that is her business but when it is gone he will be in jail and she will be struggling with her and her kids again…I just hope she do not allow herself to be an example…

  • two_gunz_45ACP

    I don’t care what she does with her money it’s hers however maybe she can do better she is never getting out of that situation he will kill her and her kids plus cheat the entire time I feel for this young dumb broad.

  • two_gunz_45ACP

    Wow

  • libsrtheh8ters

    Nice try but NO, I definitely wouldn’t bail out a drug dealer. This is WHY poor people are POOR, they are irresponsible & make bad decisions.

    • two_gunz_45ACP

      Poor people are poor also because black families never tell the children how to manage money or purchase property and make good investments. To this day I don’t know anything about my parents life insurance or portfolios which is silly being 40, my 4 are set for life and the oldest has all the information she needs once I split.

  • Ted Wojtasik

    If this guy is engaged to a woman who just landed 88 million dollars, what the hell is he still slinging dope for? I would think he would give it up after scoring a lady worth more than every LA dealer combined. This is either a set up or these are two of the dumbest people on the planet.

  • TheyHateMe

    so wait, in DOUBLE STANDARD AMERIKKA, an African American receives a $6million+ bail for peddling drugs, yet, a white man receives a $1million bail, for ASSASSINATING 9 innocent churchgoing souls…. Something is Wrong AMERIKKA!!!

    • two_gunz_45ACP

      It’s not a color thing bro they know who this guy is and who his girl is surprised it was not 20 or 30 what I am surprised about is you saying Dylan R received bail for capitol murder which in most states you get no bail hearing for murder with special circumstances that SC being death penalty

      • TheyHateMe

        agree..its mind baffling… and depressing to know these double standards are in place

  • bachelorrj

    I have a feeling I’ll be paying her welfare again in a couple of years. This girl from the ghetto gets a once in a lifetime chance to do something good for herself and smokes it up with her POS drug lover boyfriend. I am child free and unmarried and could have done something with a quarter of what she won like go to a prestigious art school and actually make something of myself. I won’t feel sorry for her when she blows it all living the ‘hood life’.

    Her cornrow’s cranked too tight.

  • Denise

    At the rate she’s going, that money is gonna be gone REALLY soon. And when it is, everyone who is around now is gonna be gone. Sad.

  • sheryl walton

    Mastermine, Not in her shoes, but does not take a genius to see where this is headed. Most people do look at the good in a situation. When you observe someone who is oblivious which does happen when you are directly involved and can’t see past your emotions. No one wants to see someone get taken advantage of. This is a false sense of security for her.

  • LawProf61

    $6M for BAIL for a drug bust? Good Lord, they release terrorists for less. What the hell????

  • -Nate

    As it’s plain to see , most of the negative comments are by cowardly , fearful of anyone not white teabagger types ~ the article made no mention of welfare etc. yet they keep bringing it up , ignoring the fact that more white folks are on welfare than two of any other ethnic groups combined .

    Yes , the poor girl is clearly ignorant , very different from stupid , we’ll see if she and her kids make it out O.K. , one can only hope .

    FWIW , most lotto winners blow it all and wind up broke and far worse off than before , another fact that no one likes to admit .

    -Nate

  • Mary

    This is disgusting. They have enough money for then lifetimes yet they are selling heroin with children in the house. What does this tell you? They are scum pure and simple and they should lose their children. And before you call me a racist I am a STRONG believer in MLK’ s words that you should be judgement be the color of your skin but the content of your character and that is exactly what I am doing with these two bad people.

  • Cuteypops

    It just goes to show that you can win the lottery and still be stupid.

  • Jan P

    Black, white, I don’t give a @#$% what color she is, she is stupid as hell!

  • Yvonne Watkins

    It’s not about “Ya’ll” worrying about her money, it’s about concerned people worried about the type of person she has around her children. Child Services needs to look into this. For her children’s/child’s sake, she needs to be monitored.

  • Keionna Lee

    I wouldn’t dare waste my money on anyone committing a crime , not even my kids they know the law. I would have put that money towards my kids , church , invested in a few stocks , and bonds, pay off my loans and other debts , brought a house and own a few businesses. With the rest of my funds I would took my kids on a family vacation and save whatever I had left over for a rainy down.

    • two_gunz_45ACP

      Chruch???? Why would you give money to a chruch they already have enough before my wife and I got married I told her she had to leave her church otherwise we were not getting married especially by Creflo Dollar

  • Dave Rave

    She’s a very pretty woman, and now she’s filthy rich. It’s unfortunate she can’t realize she can do much better than what she’s getting

    No surprise. Typical Blacks.

  • Deb Kerak

    she needs to spend her money on educating herself to speak right.

    • Mom

      I wholeheartedly agree!!

  • mookie

    well i guess that money did not last too long, what about the kids future education? that seemed to be a priority at first but now the priorities changed as they always do in the capitalistic society.

  • phyllis

    somebody that lived with hardship most of their life could have used that money,instead we have people like her who spend that money bailing out a boyfriend who is a heroin addict or sells it to people who are killing themselves with this drug,where is the justice in the world,how about spending it on ST.judes or for abused women with children or the less fortunate,or breast cancer foundation,now that would be justisfied,nobody is telling her how to spend her money,people just get upset when they read shit like this because its a waste of good money that could have gone toward something worthy

  • Sarah ZombieBacon Campbell

    She’s right. It’s her money. Foolishly spent, maybe, but hey, it’s not like she was going to give any of it to me anyway. Besides that 9mil barely put a dent in her 127mil

  • Stefanie

    She should use that money and go take an English class. Good grief!

  • Barbara Keehn

    6 million bail!? I’ve only ever seen murderers with bail that high 6 million? Is it because the court knows she has money?

  • Mike Pressley

    So happy that fate decided to help this poor mutha out. It’s just scary how dumb people can be.

  • Dave

    She hasn’t spent anything yet. As long as he shows up to his court hearings she gets the money back. Does the author not understand how bail works?

  • Maurice Powell

    What’s not mentioned is “you get all the $9 million back when and if the bailed person shows up for court.” This is how the bail bond companies make their profit. They pay the bond and keep the percent you paid them as profit.

  • Earl Duke

    Every day we read about the NEW dumbest , stupidest moron on the planet and HERE is TODAYS example ……..8000 bags of heroin but he’s not a drug dealer ????? LOLOLOL

  • Robin Nault Brenske

    Its true what she does with her money is her business, but being with a man who no doubt is promoting heroin is beyond believe .

  • specialK113

    This dumb “B” is taking stupid to lofty new heights, or depths that cannot be fathomed. She makes Mike Vick look like a genius, and O.J look like a Rhodes scholar.

  • yaegerj

    It is her money to do what she pleases with it. Why is this a story. Mind your business.

  • edan

    If the bail was $9 Million. The bond would be 10%, which would be $900,000. I doubt that puts much of a dent in her total winnings. If the bf doesn’t run, she get’s that back, anyway. I do hope she has a good financial adviser, attorney, and accountant. She will want to do something worthwhile with some of that money down the road.

    • Revmm Al is riding into town to advise her

  • creaseguard

    I think with all the money you should hire a better lawyer because that bond seems excessively high and any good defense lawyer could get that reduced.

  • Anonymous

    It is her money, but at the rate she is spending to get her boyfriend out of jail she will be broke and back on welfare in no time. I sorry no matter how much I loved someone I wouldn’t pay that much money to bail them out of jail and take from my child.

  • Midway C.J

    I don’t care if it’s her money. She has four kids and she should be using that money on to give them a good life and a good education. She’s bailed out a clearly guilty man 2 times and not only that she’s a bad mother for even wanting to make excuses and keep that person in their life and around her children.

    She’s so concerned with how any of this benefits us but criticism is used to benefit others. Keep pissing your money away on a druggy and hanging around those sort of people and that education you want for your children isn’t going to mean anything if they grow up learning to stay with bad company. This woman and her boyfriend are both bad influences.

  • slik6

    unfortunately lottery winning doesn’t come with a play book. You have a woman who has no idea how money works, her blessing with taxes if not properly handled will be deleted within a few years. She needs a smart and honest and very visible accountant and trusted lawyer to advise her. Only advise, not to control her money !! Live off the interest only, not the principal. Get rid of the drug dealer and find a solid environment to live in. Otherwise she will lose it all at the hands of others and herself. Seen this many times. God help her .

  • Sher

    I also live in NC and when I saw her on tv with the idiot beside her flashing the ticket, I had a feeling that she was a ghetto mama who never should have gotten that much money – and I felt sorry for the kids. Turns out that I was right. She doesn’t have the sense she was born with.

    • Must be in the water. I’m sure the retort will be He loves me, I can’t be without him. . Four kids, no father,ghetto trash with money

  • james diorio

    So, taxpayers have been paying this idiot’s bills for quite some time. She’s been getting Subsidized Housing,EBT and Medical and Dental (that’s right…you even paid for her teeth). Now, before she spends all of her lottery winnings how about she pays the tax payers back all the freebies we’ve afforded her and her FOUR kids? I think one million is fair. And, remember when she won she said she was going to give her Church 10 million? Hahaha. I’ll bet that didn’t happen.

  • Phyllistein King

  • bandit va

    One word for her……. FOOL

  • seamusoclancy

    so few of us get opportunities like this girl has received, and while 6 or 9 million bucks isn’t a game changer when you have 50+ million in the bank, her decision making in total is questionable at a minimum. 4 kids by 26? “engaged” to someone with guns and go-away-forever quantities of drugs they are dealing? another cautionary tale about the foolish lottery winner developing as we speak…

  • Wayne Dobbins

    I’ll say within the next few months crack mammie will end up rotting in a dumpster with a Nicole Simpson neck gash and no sign of the $cash.

  • Deacon Womack

    Well Bless God…let’s do the math: $88mil-$9mil leaves her quite a bit , my question is “what did the authorities know and when did they know it ?” It seems to me that the system is the beneficiery in all this…besides it’s her money to do with whatever she wishes even if we think it’s : https://youtu.be/hcPiip-xkyw

  • Diceros

    She could use that money to work out her own business

    What a shame they charge bail at $9 Mill because she won millions. tha’ts the system for You as for Mrs. Holmes she needs Help, you have a pretty face but no brains. or you not useing it.

  • whatever1959

    This what happens when you give a ghetto hood rat money. Instead of help building the community she supports a bum. smdh.

  • Livingston Hampton

    It saddens me to see someone like her so young and so freaking stupid! Yes… no one has the right to tell her what to do with her money but guess what? When you make poor decisions like she has by pissing away millions on her loser boyfriend instead of ensuring a future for her kids then people who have common sense and know better have the right to call you out on it. If anything, she should be praying to God asking him to give her a brain and to implant some knowledge and intelligence into it.

    Why bother selling drugs at all? His woman has 88 million! If she is willing to spend 9 million to bond him out of jail then, she should be willing to give him anything he wants.

  • Bad Tag 1

    bails him out, spending 9 mill. is she freakin nuts or what. should of let him set. maybe he might of learned something. but then again can not fix stupid. on both parts. she could of took that 9 mill, MOVED, to another state, bought a nice home, took care of the kids, by taking that 9 mill, putting it in a bank account account for them, for collage, a home, a nice car when they are 18. and then lived a nice life with the rest, by traveling the world, when the kids was not in school. Give them something better then the every day life of bull crap we all live in. But spending 9 mill, on getting a guy out of jail that broke the law, is just down right retarded. makes her to be the biggest idiot around right now. other then the Kim and her sister`s. no one can top them … but then again ……

  • Pinky Boode Strztzwize

    Mind your businesses…you guys re just jealous

  • Crazytrain

    26 with 4 kids and a drug dealing boyfriend. She makes excellent choices. So glad she won the lottery.

  • Rosandra M. Davis

    Well I wouldn’t bail anybody out of jail, if I had more than two nickels.

  • Peter Matuszak

    There’s an old saying that applies here, A fool and his money are soon parted. Ok let me get this straight, stupid wins 88 million, she has drug dealing boyfriend, she throws away 9 million of said 88 million all because of criminal activity, how much was that heroin worth? I doubt it was 9 milion, and depending how much jail time boyfriend gets, was this drug dealing business profitable in any way? Now if that were me, I would have ditched drug dealing boyfriend and started living a normal criminal free life, it’s not like she has to commit crimes anymore she has fricking 88 million dollars!!!!!!!!!!!!! This isn’t a matter of love, it’s a matter of wanton stupidity and lack of education, I wonder if she even completed grade school before she had her first kid, It’s a shame that the money wasn’t won by someone responsible who would have put it to good use and not wasted it on foolish and criminal behavior, I guess no one told her that poor choices in life will only lead to misery, money can buy a lot of things but to bad that common sense isn’t one of them.

  • alrui

    What a DFN! I hope the BF disappears and she pisses the $ away to a white bail bondsman:-)

  • Gruff McGruff

    Why are people so retarded? With $88 million you could put it in a 30 year treasury and get ~$2.5 million in interest for the next 30 years and get your $88 million back at the end. And she talking about a college fund lol. B*tch buy a bond and you could spend $5000 a day forever and never go broke.

  • StevieD

    I loves these stories. It makes me realized how little I have to do in this world to be ahead. Idiot.

  • Lupe Hernandez

    This just broke my heart to hear about this. Just a couple of months ago I was happy to hear that she won the lottery. I was happy to know that the kids could benefit so much from this. But I had wondered if she would be one of those single moms who would spend her money on a man who hasn’t achieved anything in life (I grew up around women like this).

    But now I see that she is that kind of single mom who came from the hood with the mentality of putting a man like this before the well-being of her family. Regardless of him being the father of her children, he doesn’t sound like he has a good reputation. She spent all that money on someone who broke the law twice. If she stays with him, or if she continues down this road, that money will be gone so fast, and that money she claims she is holding for the kids will be gone too. But that’s if she doesn’t change.

    I’ve seen women like this before, and sadly it’s nothing new. Oh how I wish to stop seeing women worship men who act like menacing babies. I really don’t understand that mentality. Is it love? Is it because they didn’t have a good male figure in their life? I thought I had problems. I wouldn’t trade to be in her shoes although I’m broke and jobless and in debt with student loans. I never was desperate for man to love me, or desperate enough to settle for just any man. I love that about myself. That’s worth having more than 88 million dollars. I hope one day soon she’ll open her eyes. I pray that God will be with those kids.

  • bobo schmedlap

    dead or in jail – same thing! If not, she will be broke and on welfare very soon!

  • Connie Stanley

    While money can take the people out of the hood, it can’t take the hood out of the people…..lol

  • karen

    THIS is the man you are engaged to who will be the father figure for your children???? 9 million dollars on a worthless thug who supplies heroin and probably will sell it to your kids one day. You belong in lockup like him… preferably a mental health facility lockup. Whacked

    Oh, dear God. I never thought there were people that deserved large sums of money LESS than the Kardashians/Jenners, but here they are….Literally STRAIGHT out of the ‘hood, not even having to exert the tiny bit of effort to throw together a top selling rap album or anything. Talk about dangerous…All that money will disappear from the face of the Earth, and there will be not a trace of anything to show for it.

  • thepatrioticgirl

    So, a few questions come to mind: Why would the author post the article and then end it by telling us it’s none of our business? And is capitalizing the word “Black” when describing Ms. Holmes the politically correct thing to do now and would she capitalize the word “White” in the same way?

  • Jan Johnson

    Isn’t it amazing how IDIOTS win lotteries and obtain large amounts of cash and people with common sense rarely does!! this female is one I would love to see broke , homeless and hungry and I wouldn’t give her the hair off my chinny-chin-chin!! there is NO word that can describe the stupidity and Ignorance of this female!! the sky should just fall on someone that stupid and they die from the air!! but easy come easy go!! this female don’t have a LICKA_SENSE!! but she do have the right to waste it anyway she want to!!

  • Ann M Flickinger

    honestly, i would have left him sit,if he got himself into it, he can get himself out. don’t mean to be rude or cruel or judgmental. i would have found a place to raise my kids without the boyfriend,their father or not.

  • shawn

    What a fking looser. Take her kids give them a decent guardian. Put the money in trust for them and let her spend her life in and out of prison if that’s the life she wants.

  • jjjerrycole

    This is heavy, heavy stuff. I’m sure the police will be tailing these people on a regular basis. On the other hand Holmes, and McDow have the capability to divert powers that be with attorneys, detective agencies, and other questionable sources. Instead of seeking rehab it seems they are embarking on the party route including lots of drugs. That will end in an overdose, or more charges eventually. They have it in their power to change their lives forever, for the better, one wonders what is holding them back?
    Somebody is watching this play out in Hollywood. It will make a great screenplay. Fill in the blanks, wouldn’t surprise me if someone is writing the story as I type this. Just waiting, for the ENDING! If I had to guess it will be tragic.

  • SlimveggieLuv

    Something’s not right. If she posted bond twice at the usual 10% rate then she only cough up a misly $900,000. Am I right or am I right??

  • michael145

    Why is the boyfriend still selling drugs if she has 88 million? Maybe she could have given him the 9 million she spent on getting him out of prison before he went to prison and then he wouldn’t have needed to sell drugs. Then again if he’s a drug addict he would have just blew through it. Also, if he’s a drug addict and they live together how much you want to bet she is too? Why can’t normal people win the lottery? Lol.

    • SlimveggieLuv

      They keep saying 9 million it’s not right. She posted bond which is usually 10% of the total bail. Which means she paid a total of only $900,000

  • chinwendu1

    Just too unbelievable 🙁

    What of the children’s future?

  • Kordell70

    This is why I really wish reporters would explain the nuances of bail to people in their articles. Too many people see what they want to see when an article is written this way and then they make ridiculous comments about the lottery winner. First off, if she were to post bond for her boyfriend via a bail bondsman she would only have to pay 10% of the bail, HOWEVER, that money is then lost forever even if the bf shows up to court. This is akin to a service fee paid to the bail bondsman who then vouches for the remainder of the bail. Of course they will then place a lien on assets, etc. The alternative IF you have the money and can pay the ENTIRE $9 million in bail is to do so. Then if the bf shows up to court you get ALL $9,000,000 back. The bail is just a way to help give more insurance that someone will make sure the defendant shows up. So, financially speaking you can put up 10% of the bail and get a bondsman and guarantee a loss of $900,000 or 10% of $9,000,000 whether the bf shows up to court of not; plus possibly lose an additional $8,100,000 if he does not show up as the bail bondsman will put a lien on your assets; OR you can pay the entire $9,000,000 and get back 100% if he shows up (better return than using a bondsman) or lose all $9,000,000 which you would lose if you had a bondsman any way. In any event if you know the defendant will show up then her move is a very sound one. Only better move would be to not pay at all, but if you love someone and its your money, then it is your business.

  • DRT

    The state got more than 50% of that money. Why is no one asking what they are doing with their share?

  • stephen1949

    You’re absolute right, Sugabelly. I am not really bothered, but I wanted to give her something to think. about before she blows the entire amount of winnings. Probably she won’t listen because she swears he’s not a dealer or a user, and the rest unspoken which would read “I know the brother loves me, and he’ll be there for the long term. Yeah, honey, with your money. Most compassionate people don’t want others to suffer, so we reach out and throw some words of caution her way. You’re right, she can do anything she wants with the money, but to me it speaks volumes about her character that she would spend 3 million on the heroin trafficing boyfriend, but how much on each of her four children, who will support them? It’s the same old sad/black story.

  • DRT

    We should be asking what the state is spending their share on. Maybe it should be education. Radical idea, I know.

  • Kim Mcc

    This woman is incredible. I cant stop thinking about this women. At first I was mad, and now I feel sorry for her. To spend this type of money on a man who for some reason will not marry you , is sad. I would think that this dude would have put a ring on her finger after all the money she has wasted on him. With large amounts of money, come large responsibilities. Why not just get him a lawyer.? This women is very very insecure to say the least!!! Yes, it is her money to spend, but dang!!! I would suggest that she seek mental help immediately. At this point, its not about the money, it’s mental.

    million dollars to give, we’d likely be bailing our loved ones out of
    jail too.

    Only FOOLISH FOOLS like this one do foolish things. No man’s (?) should be worth millions in value over that of the WELL FARE of your children. Her children should be removed from her custody.

      No, she worked two jobs to support her kids. One job was at Walmart and one at McDonalds. Less than 1/3 of blacks receive welfare, so, why do you ask, when chances are twice as great that she doesn’t receive welfare?

  • Stacey

    There shouldn’t be a war on drugs to begin with. As soon as officials saw an opening, they began legally robbing her. Of course, no one is going to suspect the obvious, smh.

    • Bea

      Robbing her is right, if it is true. I think this story is a hoax, like the story that Dylann Roof, who killed 9 church members, had a bond set a $1million and has bonded out of jail. That story has been circulating on the internet and I did some research and discovered that story was not true. I did some research on this story, as well, and a prosecutor in NC said that no court records show that this woman paid $9 million in bail…

She’s another dummy with money who doesn’t want to let go of her ghetto a$$ boyfriend or lifestyle. You can disagree all you want but it’s only going to push you further into the disconnected world you live in. Her kids are in danger of following her dumb a$$ footsteps. Would I bail out a loved one if I had the money? Love and wisdom are two separate things…hell no I wouldn’t! I grew up in the hood. Seen and done it all. I make no excuses for my wrong doing. And I especially will not make excuses for the actions of others

  • WizKareefah

    I understand her bailing a loved one out and I can’t judge her for that. What I don’t understand is how you have all this money and you’re not able to live a clean lifestyle. There’s no need for drugs or paraphernalia. You now have money to pay for rehab. There’s no need for illegal guns, you now have money to obtain a permit. Judging from her Facebook post, She needs to go to college. She has the money to pay for college. Money can’t fix stupid I guess. Great parenting having your kids witness a drug arrest. It’s not like she can’t afford to be away from that lifestyle.

    • Bea

      Some of the biggest drug users are people with money. Whitney Houston, Amy Winehouse, Phillip Hoffman, Michael Jackson, Heath Ledger, River Phoenix have died from drugs, just to name a few, …The charge was “simple marijuana.” Probably half the country has smoke marijuana and nor have I read where the gun was illegal. Seems, you expect her to be some kind of “angel” when most Americans are not…

      • WizKareefah

        Look at all those dead people you listed. Seems like not being angel paid off, right? IF you have money, uplift yourself and more importantly create a good life for your kids. Pretty simple. Too bad there will always be people who you support that aren’t happy because they have nothing, then they get something and still can’t shake the idiotic behavior. Having money gives you options, she clearly doesn’t want options. Which is a shame when you have kids.

        • Bea

          i guess that is my point. Uplifting yourself to create a good life is not “pretty simple,” or these people I listed would not be dead… You, yourself say that “money can’t fix stupid, I guess,” and then you say that money should fix her “stupid”… I guess what I’m saying is, stop trying to “understand” her and “judging” her (by her facebook page), or condemn her parenting skills, or claim illegals guns and don’t expect her to be an angel, when most Americans are not…Simply, wish this stranger who you know nothing about… the best…

    Good example of why we don’t need state lotteries. They are immoral and the state cannot claim the righteousness of its laws, including drug prohibition, if they are running a gambling operation. The lawmakers who voted to start these lotteries up again during the 1980s and the officials who operate them today deserve life prison sentences as much as the heroin dealer in this story does.

  • Telling It Like It Is

    It’s her money and at this rate will be gone soon. But she’ll be “blessed”, because she’ll claim poverty and get on welfare. The amount of money she spent on bail could last a lifetime in the right hands, but as she said, it’s hers and not ours! If it were mine and I was to spend $9 million, I would build shelters for homeless veterans. I can guess how much she’s donated to charity!

    It should be mandatory if someone wins that kind of money that they have to pay back all of the money they originally received from welfare! She won more than enough for that I’m sure!

    As a young African woman , which I am Afr-Am female, she is very STUPID. She should be trying to produce a better life for herself and her children but she has a low-life ghetto mindset. “A fool and his/her money will soon part” and she will regret her own stupidity when nothing is left. She needs to go to rehab and set up some type of foundation to keep other Blacks out of trouble, but she has real issues. If she is not careful, all the money will be gone and she will end up on welfare, another statistic only DUMBER!!!

    According to the woman, Veronica Wells, who wrote this piece, “we were all excited to learn” this mother of four had won the powerball lottery. I’m just wondering who “we” is. Nothing personal but I don’t give a rat’s anus who won ANY lottery and that certainly includes this one. Unless she promised me a cut if her number came in I don’t give a damn what she won. Who the crap is this Wells woman to presume to speak for us?

Many of us come from families and cultures where we don’t have loved ones in jail. Further, the writer acts as though this woman’s actions are victimless. Doesn’t the writer care about this woman’s children? Appalling and reprehensible! Don’t children’s lives matter?

  • nunya

    Did she really say they talked about Jesus so she’s not surprised yall are talking about her? Jesus didn’t put children in danger. Nor did he not share his gifts with those in need. He prolly prayed for forgiveness for someone that had EIGHT THOUSAND bags of a drug that was killing millions of people. But I’m pretty sure he didn’t turn those 8000 bags into 9 million dollars.

    She is so beautiful, and she is now rich, I cant understand why she would
    put herself in this situation. She needs to drop this guy and find someone
    that respects her, if he did respect her, after being bailed out the first time
    he wouldn’t of brought drugs and weapons to her house. I really hope i
    do not read another negative story on Ms. Holmes, All though i do not
    mind looking at her beautiful face and that gorgeous smile.

    It’s sad that this woman is going to most likely lose everything becasue of her drug dealer boyfriend. In less than a year, he has already cost her more than 10% of her prize. The money may be gone within a few years. I hope she has set up the children’s education funds. I hope she has some good friends that will warn her of the risks of marrying the drug dealer. A very sad sad story. She should invest in an education for herself as well!

  • Dean

    nobody should be in this ladies business, What she does with her money is her own business.. all you haters are jealous!!! even i’m a little jealous BUT I’M NOT A HATER………….

    • frances

      Nobody hates her, but she has cast her lot with a criminal and she’s bailed him out more than once. If something doesn’t happen to make her see the light, her own children may be the ones paying the price for her stupidity. I seriously doubt anyone commenting is jealous of her good fortune. It’s possible to be happy for her on one hand that she is wealthy, but quite another to express justifiable disapproval for her poor choices. Everyone agrees that what she does is her business. It’s just too bad that she apparently doesn’t have someone who can advise her financially and who doesn’t have any ulterior motive to do so.

  • Chris Parker

    Latin pigs would refer to this woman as a *bum ditch*. I hope her children can get away from her ASAP.

  • nunya

    Sooooo she bailed him out but has he been found guilty? Which means he has to go back to court and will more than likely be sent to prison. Which also means that no amount of money can get you out of your sentence. Which ALSO means that she wasted the money. Yeah, you can’t tell anyone what to do with their money. But you can say she is ignorant.
    I also would like to know if she was on welfare. A lot of single, white or black, mothers receive government funds. But those who contribute to the welfare of others, i.e. our money, have no say in where it goes. But nobody standing in a welfare line waiting on their check has ever said “what y’all need to be worried about is yall money”. Never in the history of ever has that been said.
    And to the so called journalist……I dunno what world you live in but in a smart person’s world 9 million dollars “honestly” would not be spent bailing out a loved one that had EIGHT THOUSAND bags of herion. (If they were “honestly” not guilty) I’d be like…look babe…just chill for a bit and ima get a REALLY good attorney for you. Otherwise, me and my kids are going on vacation. Buh bye.

  • kurtstull

    She knows the father of her children better than any of us, and she knows what her children’s needs are, so I think she is doing what is best for her family, and I do not blame her at all for bailing out her boyfriend. I just hope that he appreciates this chance to start a law abiding life, and to be the best father he can be to his children, and also do right by his girlfriend and marry her. Beyond that, if the taxpayers contributed to the cost of raising her family and paying her bills, then maybe taxpayers wouldn’t be so wrong to suggest that she pay back that money. And ditto for all government beneficiaries who became rich sports figures, music artists, movie and TV stars, etc. Then THAT would earn them respect and leave people with nothing else to say.

    ok the woman’s comment about how I spend my money is my business is correct it is not our business.
    How ever when you spend 3 million to bail out a boyfriend it becomes public business and we can comment. He is not a drug dealer?? but after YOU bail him out he can not even get home on time?? in addition drugs are found in your house. did you bring them in? no? then look to him. but you said he is not a drug user. and you are not a fool either. over 10% of you total take home money spent on a man who dis respects you by not getting home in time to avoid a curfew violation.

  • Scatha

    I play the lottery when I have a few extra dollars and when I hear of someone winning I always say to myself I hope they were in NEED and really DESERVED to win it. The fact that after taxes she came out with $88 million, she and her children were set for LIFE. At the rate she is going now, she will end up with no money and perhaps no children. She needs to get her head on straight and realize her children are MORE important than any man, if they if was the kids father. He chose to do wrong. What sort of message is that sending to the kids???

  • AuntieSocial1

    I think people who pay their taxes, work their butts off, buy tickets, and watch other people win, have a right to their opinion. We may not have the right to tell someone how to spend their winnings; however, we have a right to form an opinion of a pompous, idiot who could be doing much more positive things with the money than enabling her drug dealer boyfriend and his addictions. Furthermore, “birds of a feather, flock together…” She may have a makeover, to try to “look” classy; but, class isn’t something you can buy. Furthermore, she holds herself above others, telling people she will pray for them and “they talked about Jesus so I’m not surprised y’all are talking about me.” HUH? lmao Well, at the rate she is going, she will be broke or dead, with company she keeps. If she doesn’t change her ways she will be bailing her kids out of jail too if the money lasts that long. Well, I will pray for her, because obviously SHE needs it.

    Listen people you have it wrong…..It’s in her blood it’s her nature…no one in her family taught her good sense.She has a low self esteem probably dropped out of school..parents never around. God gave her a break from all evil she has encountered. She was given a way out for her and her children.I am not the one to judge either but this is where DHS needs to do their job clearly her children are not safe in their environment.You can take them from the streets and ghetto but you cant take away the streets and ghetto.Take an old car that doesn’t run and paint it. Its still an old car that doesn’t run.I feel so sorry for her and she cant do anything about it but tell us we are wrong. Shes the one who has to live with her choices. She will be broke soon enough.

    She gets the bail money back, IF he doesn’t skip the country. . . Which I doubt either of them will do since I don’t think they’d be able to figure out where the border is . . .

  • BABOSO

    Oh no. This woman is trash. Her boyfriend be trash too. It’s not about how she spends the money. But she’s spending the money to get a known drug dealer put back on the street. He will still have his connections, even with ankle bracelet. So she is a phony, pathetic excuse for a Christian. She doesn’t even care about the danger she is putting he kids in. I hope she didn’t use a bank and some white thug comes in and steals it all.

Even if he is the father of your children (some or all), if you defend him could possibly lose your children, all your money and maybe your life. God has better for you. If you are engaged and get married, what you had before you marry is yours, so never co-mingle that money. I hope she did buy a house but if she gets caught up in drug deal, gov will take her house and cars. Wonder what her children will think of her when they are older and realize what she has done or perhaps they will go down the same road. I live about 45 minutes from Shallotte NC and it is a nothing tourist town and drugs are rampant. I hope she was smart at first and set up trusts for each one of her children so they might have a decent chance in life. So many stories about people winning lottery and with their poverty mentality they are broke in a few years and many are dead in a few years. And I am really surprised some thug hasn’t weaseled their way into her life for the money – of course this guy is probably staying for the money.

          Not NC specifically but in other states so I checked. Turns out you are stupid.
          “If a bail agent is forced to forfeit on a bond, the bond amount is paid directly to North Carolina’s free public school system.” N.C. Bail Agents Assoc. President Mark Cartret

          • Edward R Morrow

            And Fat still does not get either post. Ah well.

            Bail agents don’t forfeit on a bond – perps who skip appearances forfeit on Bail bonds. In the case of a forfeit, Bail agents then pay the state the full amount of the Bond and then go after the Bond buyer’s assets to cover the Bond loss.

            Bail bonds are typically had for 10/15% of the face value of the actual bond. Follow now; If the Bond is one million, the purchaser’s payment to the Bondsman is 100/150K (K stands for thousand). In this case; the nominal cost of the Bond would be from 900K to 1350K. Since there was no mention of the bail being defaulted on, that 900k/1350k stays with the Bondsman as payment for services rendered. If the bonds are defaulted on (perp skips), then the face amount of the 9Mill bonds are due and collectable – the Bondsman pays the 9Mill to the State and then goes after the buyer’s assets to recover theat loss.

            However; If Lottery winner was stupid enough to put up the entire bond amount herself (it would save the Bondsman’s cut but lose the opportunity cost) ) and the perp does default, she is still out the entire 9Mill, which the State keeps and disposes of as provided by law.

    • Quantez Williams

      it’s not quite that much. it’s $188m if they draw it out over a lifetime. $127 is the lump sum. I guess they’re deducting all of the interest they would normally owe.

          Ringo Moves To Monte Carlo To Avoid Tax Laws

          Former BEATLE Ringo Starr has set up a permanent home in Monte Carlo so he can avoid tax laws in Britain and Los Angeles.

          The rocker still has homes in England and California but he chooses to live in Monte Carlo, Monaco because he gets to make more royalties money there.

          He says, “I live in Monte Carlo with residences in England and LA. I’ve had a house here in LA since 1975 and I love LA. I love America but I love LA.”

          Starr admits he has always fought against paying crippling tax bills: “It’s overrated. I want to do the Willie Nelson thing – you just don’t pay until they catch you and then you do some shows somewhere and it’s all forgiven.”

    Geez, even with money, no need to worry about housing, food, children, etc…. this “Black” Woman doesn’t want a better life. Talk about self destructive. She’ll be found dead sooner than later with the life she is choosing. Makes no sense to me what so ever.

  • Sakura

    It’s a sad shame that this low class piece of stupid trash is the one who won the lottery. She doesn’t deserve it, and she belongs in jail right along with her low class piece of stupid trash boyfriend. She has NO CLUE obviously, what right from wrong even is!

    • Quantez Williams

      she deserves it because she bought the winning lottery ticket, dee bag.

      • Nitro1211

        Dude come on….she is an idiot and so is her boyfriend.

        • Quantez Williams

          so what? it’s still her money.

          • Nitro1211

            This is true but as black people it’s makes us look bad…..

            • Quantez Williams

              to whom??

              • Nitro1211

                Have you been paying attention to us in the news…..they always portray us as idiots……if she had open a few businesses and gave people jobs we would never hear about her…think about it

          • Edward R Morrow

            It is not humanly possible for you to be so dull witted.

    • Patrick Covington

      Okay, get over yourself.

      • Edward R Morrow

        Sakura is right – you are too slow to get it.

  • The Final Word

    I hate to state the obvious, but she is one dumb b^tch.

      that’s some great analysis right there.

      • mrmiami1354

        80 mil now im depressed lol

  • cassieM2000

    In 5 years this women that we all jumped up and down about when she won because she has a disabled child and other kids, and had no job will be broke in 5 years, and that lowlife will be nowhere in sight. What an idiot.

  • mrmiami1354

    Ok but with 80 mil why the hell is he selling drugs anyway if she loves him enough to spend that kind of cash on his bail im sure she gave him some of that 80 mil

  • sven johnson

    calm down people . guaranteed a few of these brothas will be dead within a few months . thats what we need , right ?

  • Patrick Covington

    If the shoe was on the other foot, do any women here in the board think that a man would bail you out of jail if he had that kind of money, if it was the same situation?

    • Justice League

      bingo! we have a winner!!!!!

    • bill moore

      Depends on how good she is in bed.

    • ★RokStarR☆

      I wouldnt put it past if old girl was under the influence when she responded on fb. A guy like him probably helped or has her hook on that dope. Look at Whitney and Bobbi K when they responded to the people around them about their troubled guy friend. They denied and acted as if the people around them where the problem.

  • Allen2013

    She’s stupid. I hope the d*ck was worth it because he’s going to put a hit on you now, negro.

  • Ineeda Mann

    hahahahahahaha……nogga is as nogga does!!! He’ll probably beat her or kill her next and run away with the money. NEW LAW NEEDED: No NOGS can win lottery! It be bad for their culture and shee-it.

  • MarlboroStan

    9 million dollars is 10% of 90 million dollars. So this guy was in jail on a 90 million dollar bail? Are we sure the numbers are right in this article?

  • ★RokStarR☆

    Must have her Masters in Idiotology and a Minor in Common Sense

  • Diana Baskin

    I would not waste 9 million dollars to bail out a boyfriend. I wouldn’t even do it for my husband. A fool and his/her money will soon part. I would rather use it for a more worthy cause. Like feeding the homeless or helping the elderly or some other humane cause.

  • Matt Nen

    IF she ever go broke, I hope they deny her application for government assistance. Though I think she got the looks to be a street-walker, so that’s always an option for her.

  • Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo

    at least she’s got a lot left over to have fun with.

  • Brian A. Kirkland

    She has $88 million, after taxes. She’s got another $79 million, and the bail will be returned, unless he disappears, which he should because he’ll never see the light of day again, once he goes to trial. If he doesn’t run, the real nut is going to be when she pays his legal fees. That’s a million or two she’ll never see again.

  • bill moore

    The heroin dealer will be in jail soon enough.

  • Erik Baran

    A fool and her money are soon parted.

  • pettida1

    If you have to spend $9 million on a dreg, do you think it’s worth it? Move your life on…he’s hasn’t come to grips on growing up. Especially twice in the can. Your money, your life.

  • Legend50

    Idiot.

  • bill moore

    Well, if her boyfriend shows up for the trial, she gets the money back.

  • stephen1949

    There’s a reason many of these comments are deleted – think about it. So Miss Black Thing wins the lottery and what’s the very first thing she does – throws 9 million dollars in the garbage. Yes, in the garbage. If any of us gave that 9 million to a heroin trafficker that’s exactly what we’d say we did.

    Her “boyfriend” is in love with heroin, not her. How on earth could she be so blind?

    • But is it your money? Why are you bothered what she does with the money? She was never going to give any of it to you, so what is your business what she does with it. It’s HER money. She can spend it on nonsense if she wants to.

      • Patrick Covington

        You’re right, but a spade is still spade.

      • stephen1949

        To Sugabelly and others: The people commenting on this woman and her lottery winnings are on her side. They just don’t want her to make a huge mistake. Maybe they were caught in a similar situation at some point or maybe they’ve learned their lesson from previous relationships, but they don’t want to see her lose and go broke. They want her to keep her money and be able to support herself and her kids in a comfortable way.

  • For Bleep Sake

    “We really don’t have any right to tell her what to do with her money.”

    She’s still an idiot!

  • qonc1

    I don’t care what she spends and on whom – but if she keeps blowing it on that ghetto king she’s hooked up with – he’ll bleed her dry in no time. High-priced lawyers are expensive!

  • Notime2lose

    Hillary Clinton spends millions to keep her out of jail too! When you are crooked that is what you do.

  • Lord Have Mercy

    “A foolish negro and their money will always go separate ways.”~ My late Grandfather

  • Snakebite

    Hahahaha! Serioulsy? “Be blessed.” Sure. She is a single mother of four, he is a single father of three, and a drug dealer. Wow–winning team, there. As for bailing loved ones out of jail? I don’t think so. Don’t go to jail in the first place. Trash is trash, whether its your brother, sister, cousin or uncle. Pay the piper.

  • omegaman

    I see she has a real command of the English language.

  • crissy

    sad….im sure they took advantage of her 8 mil?? really, and he is gonna spend it all , my prediction was correct she had someone in prison…she could have bought her a million free men with all that money and she’s gorgeous

    • Patrick Covington

      Crissy you know what? It’s sad to say this but me and some others had predicted something negative was going to come about this lottery winning situation just because of the way she went about it from the start. To be honest, we were happy for her because you always hear about someone old winning the lottery. You don’t hear about or see too man young people winning that amount of money. When a co-worker sent me the story via text, she was like did we not say something would transpire from this? I was like wow!! This can’t be real. Again though, it’s her money. The decisions that people make in life ultimately shapes their future unless they change. I feel bad that it came to this, but what’s worse is how this will affect the children. I pray that she opens her eyes quickly or reality will set in too late.

  • C. G. Crayton

    This only goes to show how little self esteem some woman have, and their almost obsessive fear of being “alone”. She’s willing to sacrifice her kids well being in order to have a “man”.

  • Shame

    What scuzz! 3 years from now they’ll be bankrupt and still doing crimes & facing jail.

  • Kevin Floyd

    More evidence of a theory I have held for many years: If you took every last penny from every person in this country, and then divide it all into equal portions and redistribute it back to the populace, within 5 years all of the same people that were poor before you started…would be poor again. It isn’t about race, ethnicity, religion or any of the homo-racia-mysygo-islamo-phobia-ism crap. It’s about stupidity, selfishness, and a lack of personal responsibility. Runs through all cultures to some extent, but RAMPANT through others.

  • Afarin Yasna

  • Rick Roll

    Stupid negroes.

    Oh, wait, that doesn’t really narrow it down….

  • Steve Smith

    there should be an IQ test before someone gets that kind of money. Idiot Quotient. She would pass with flying colors and therefore should not get the money

  • Danny

    In my opinion, I wouldn’t waste that kind of money on someone who wasn’t interested in keeping a good life going. if they want to screw up their lives; so be it. They won’t be taking me, my family or children down with them.

    • Lisa Mazeh

      well said. most mothers or fathers that care at all about their children would thinkand act the same way

  • FuzzyFuzz

    Strangely enough, she was robbed of all money outside of her residence….boyfriend could not be reached for comment.

  • Larry Gockley

    The courts will set high bails and collect for non compliance and bail jumping. She’s going to be broke in 2 years if she lives that long as well as her kids (heirs). Sad situation.

  • Elizabeth Wilkins

    She’s absolutely right Y’all, it’s her money to do with as she pleases. Wonder if she got those college funds set up and the tithes to the church? The thing I’m most envious of though is a dude worth 9 mil; he’s gotta be a hell of a lay.

  • displaazz TheMan

    And a one and a two>>>>>>idiot

  • Patrick Covington

    First mistake, letting the world know that you won the lottery. “No one” came to her aid. Why? “No one” stepped up and said hey you, keep your mouth shut.

    Second mistake, if it’s true, bailing out an individual who was incarcerated on drugs charges. Well Miss Holmes, you defended him in your own words, letting everyone know that he’s not a drug dealer or nor does he do drugs. Then why was he locked up? You better have some hard evidence that it was sugar or flour. That ish is for the birds.

    Third mistake: Putting yourself in a situation where society will now criticize you with your kids in the mix of it all. Where are the level headed family members that will reach out to you and say hey girl…..-stop it…-or, are they keeping their mouths shut so that they don’t get cut off so that they can continue to leach off your bank. Money changes “everything”.

  • George W. George

    She needs to be investigated and her kids need to be taken away and put some place with decent people

  • rogerrramjet

    A very good thing there are no intelligence tests to get the lottery.

    But like they said her money her stupidity. Millions and they get back into drug dealing.

    You can take the person out of the trailer….

  • Starlette

    The curse of the Lottery!

  • aar340

    what about this seems right to anyone? shes living off the tax payer….she spends our money to gamble…..she then wins and instead of paying the tax payer back she bails out her criminal boyfriend….and at this rate she will be back stealing from the tax payer again…..I am sorry America but this isn’t a happy story….it actually sickens me….

  • JeromeMac

    When the government sets $3 million as a bail amount, they never expect anyone to pay it. But anyway, I support ending or at least reforming the war on drugs. I don’t care if someone smokes a little marijuana. But thousands of bags of heroin, and they are not a drug dealer? That is a lot of heron for personal use

    Ah another heart warming lottery story, this is a good one but no where close to my favorite which is the West Virginia contractor who drove around with $500,000 in cash in a storage trunk so he could tip strippers. He woke up (came to) more than once in his Suburban with all of his cash gone. Did I mention that a friend of his daughter died on his front lawn. West by god through and through

  • Lisa Mazeh

    And to the racists posting comments. your ignorance is no better than hers. this is not a black issue. all races do stupid things not just blacks. educate yourselves

  • terri turner

    She’s a complete idiot, and her children should be taken from her home, since she is determined to be with a dirtbag who lives a dangerous and criminal lifestyle. What kind of mother picks a man like that? Exposing them to their bad judgment and they see him get arrested? This kind of thing makes me sick. A dog would parent those kids better.

  • Mahatma Ghandi

    Y’all shouldn’t be judging me just cause I let a drug dealer bring drugs in my house and around my kids. It’s my business if I want to endanger my kids and spend their college money on bail. Y’all should see my new ankle bracelet. My kids be lov’n it. Y’all hold on a sec. I gotta go get my gun away from my young’ins. They playing let’s make a drug deal. Cute, aint they?

    A true sign of a total idiot, win $88 million in the lottery and still continue running an unsuccessful drug business.

  • Riot Act Radio

    A fool and their money are soon parted.

  • Debbie Jackson

    This girl needs to go to school, get rid of the drug dealer and move to a state where nobody knows her. She needs to take 1 million and spend it on herself and the kids. The rest should be invested and put in trust funds for her kids. When she marries the drug dealer, which she should not. He will leave her in a year and take half because she is too stupid to get a prenup. She will probably give the rest away to all the new friends that she will have because of her money.

  • aquarius2

    Why am I not surprised? She could have really done something with her life and given her children the kind of life people of all races would envy, instead she chose unwisely. I disagree with the author, I don’t think “most” people would spend that kind of money to bail out a loved for drug charges.

  • Chas Radley

Boyfriend still faces years in prison so she pays to have him smuggled out to join her while he is out on bail. The bunch of them then live a fairytale life thereafter.

  • Steve Palmer

    The internet is a horrible thing. We as a race have always been plagued by the insipid opinions of other people but thankfully they were limited in their ability to run their mouths. Now they can instantly do it for, in their hopes, the world to see. And there is less and less chance they will ever realize that they are idiots. The article is wrong from the start and it makes these idiots who accept it without knowing what they are talking about even more wrong. She didn’t pay bail she paid bond. Bond pays for unsentenced inmates to get out of jail prior to trial, and it is just that, a bond. It gets returned minus 10%. So at most she will pay 900K, not 9 million. So that is roughly 1% of her net worth.
    Its a small point that will be lost in a sea of jealousy and judgement. Especially because it might keep you from running your mouths.

    • Patrick Covington

      You seem to know how much she paid for “these” bonds so please provide the board with proof please. If you can’t, then your “words” are just as worthless as the article written, if “none” of it’s not true.

      • Steve Palmer

        Well I can’t provide as irrefutable proof as you did, that you’re an idiot that is. Yet the proof you seek is called the criminal justice system. That is how it works. The money is paid to secure release until trial and if necessary sentencing.
        Your last sentence is a based on a double negative and I can’t make sense out of what you are trying to say. I see from you proliferation of comments however it doesn’t stop you from trying.

    “We all done crazy, foolish and even expensive things for love”. Veronica Wells your ignorance is on display here. Please learn how to write articles, because it seems like you really did not pay attention in any of your English and/or writing classes. The one thing you are right about. Who are “we” to tell another how, what, and who to spend their money on? When the smoke clears and the veil is lifted, reality will display itself and by then it will be too late.

    • Steve Palmer

      Dude, why don’t you learn how to fucking write articles? Why don’t you worry about the plank in your own eye instead of the splinter in someone elses? “The one thing you are right about.” That is not a sentence.

What is more important for you to see is that you are fixated on other peoples mistakes and blunder through pointing them out.

    The hell i wouldn’t be bailing no one out. If you did something to deserve being in there that’s where you will stay.

I’m more in shock in 188 million being reduced to 88 million. Although not chump change in the end that’s still a lot to have taken away for taxes.

  • Liz Rennix Grimsley

    Not judging her financial decisions here. I’m wondering how this woman can claim the guy isn’t a drug thug. Stoopid?

  • Facebook Sux

    Yeah, but what about the tithes and the college fund. Did she DO that??? If so, she has done what she said she was going to do, not something entirely different.

  • Steven Smith

    unfortunately with over 80 million at her disposal anything written on here will not likely even register on her-cause she can tell us all to go ef off-she don’t need the welfare no more –
    so anything we say will roll off her drugdealing azz like water off a ducks back

  • David Merrell

    This story makes it sound like she used up all her money to bond this fool out. 9 million out of 88 million is nothing. Especially considering she can park that money in a high interest accound and literally pull in almost 3 million a year in interest alone. This woman is just fine. Also once sentencing and everything are done and over with the bond money is returned minus court costs, fines, and restitution. She will get at least 6 million of that back.

    • lisa

      True but unless you are wrongfully put in jail I don’t care who you are to me I’m not wasting that money on bailing you out. You do the crime, you do the time. No one is worth that especially someone who jus a BF. If he leaves her in the end then she just wasted her time and money on that fool but to each and their own. I have no tolerance for B.S so I tend to be a hard a** on everyone.

    • calilife4me

      1) $9M of $88M is a lot of money; she got it in April. Your type of thinking is why people go broke. 2) You’re confusing bail and bond. Bond is not returned. It’s money paid to a bondsman for a service.

  • sheryl walton

    Marie Holmes has not figured out that this man is loving on her money and not her. Already has her associated with illegal activity. Her children need a positive role model. Marie does not seem to have smarts about her money so yes someone needs to wise her up before there is no honey and no money.

    The cash required for a 6 million dollar bond is 10% or $600,000, so all told she’s out $900,000 not 9 million. Horrible reporting. She’ll be dead within two years.

    • calilife4me

      This isn’t 100% true. Not every bondsman has a 10% fee, sometimes they are 12-15%. Sometimes judges will order a defendant to pay the full amount if you have the ability to do so. If it’s a federal case 20%; it’s situational.

    Im not asking for perfection… but… when a person posts bail , the money isn’t “spent”… it’s being held by the courts and if the defendant comes for the trial, it is returned.

    How does one achieve a 9 million dollar bail?

  • If I had a loved one in jail that had done something horrible enough to have a bail set that high, I wouldn’t be bailing them out, sorry. Unless I knew they were innocent. Which clearly he is not.

    26 with four kids and no husband shows she wasn’t too bright in the first place. Sorry if that offends anyone, but ijs.

    • ★RokStarR☆

      You’re absolutely correct. 100%. 4 times she layed in the sack with possibly 4 different guys unprotected with no promises or anything. Probably dont even know half of the guys last names that bombed one out in her hooch. No morals as you can see by her facebook post and her demeanor.

  • kim jackson

    Yes we have ALL made terrible decisions and yes it is HER money…….. but 9 million???? On a man??? It’s very sad especially to have children exposed to that environment. If I were her I would
    move to another city and change my name because every low life will be trying to marry her for money.
    She needs power of attorney over her money. If the shoe was on the other foot I bet he wouldn’t help
    her with 9 million dollars. Her kids deserve better than this.

      Just because the writer is trying to justify this foolishness with the blanket statement:

      “If some of us are honest with ourselves, if we had $3 or $6 or $9
      million dollars to give, we’d likely be bailing our loved ones out of
      jail too. Truth be told, it’s easy to shake our heads and wag our
      fingers in disgust and disapproval; but we’ve all done crazy, foolish
      and even expensive things for love.”

      doesn’t mean we all agree. This dumb girl paid bail a second time because her boy didn’t have enough self-control to not get in trouble while out on bail the first time. The stupid leading the stupid!

  • Valencia Quetel-Langford

    Disappointed! Hoped for better. I pray the children have their trust fund in place that cannot be touched.

  • Bea

    I’ve been trying to find proof that this woman spent $9 million in bail. That figure seemed excessive, to me. All I could find was a local tv station in Brunswick Co, N.C that said that a local prosecutor heard humors that said that this woman paid $9 million in bail, but that no court documents show that she paid 9 million…

    I admit in cases like these I count her money for the simple fact of when that last dime is spent then what? Did you improve yourself in marketing for a job that will support you and those 4 children comfortably? Health insurance, life insurance. Because if not, and you have to go for any type of assistance guess where those $$$$ come from?At the rate she is saving her “man” those millions will be gone soon enough .

  • adicted2thahustle

    listen she had 88 million u better bail your man out … r u people kidding me if u had 88 million ?? just think bout that thats more then drake lol I’m sure u can let 9 mil slide and settle for 79 not that big of a deal,, but on another note wtf is this niga still fckin with the streets for ?? smh

This is a young women that won more money then most ppl will have in there lifetime. More MONEY than this SORRY AZZ boyfriend/baby daddy/fiancee would have SPENT on her naive azz. Danm trifling men be WINNING when it comes to the women who LOVE them…HOW in the hell he’s not GUILTY!! Did he take the fall for somebody else?? I’m confused…anyway hope she can move on, and start a new life WITHOUT dude. Be more selective about the company she has in her life, girlfriend leave town QUICK!! Get a life….all that money spent and they not even MARRIED!! Had I decided to bail his azz out the first time, he would not have been LIVING with me and kids, that’s for sure.

  • jack Jackson

    This shows you how people believe MISINFORMATION on the internet..TWO WAYS TO DO A BAIL…1st is give the court 9 million dollars when court is finished, YOU GET YOUR 9 MILLION BACK—2nd pay a bail bonds man $900.000 dollars or less , so how did she lose 9 million

    I

    • Gabe Reid

      There isnt a bondsman in the country thats going to make THAT high of a bond for 10% without some SERIOUS collateral.

      • jack Jackson

        every body online is stupid, stupid she has 88 million cash, there are two ways to bail. 1st go to the court, and give them 9 million, and when there are no more court dates you will get your 9 million back, don’t even use a bail bonds company, and save that money, so how did she lose 9 million dollars, think

        • nunya_biz

          If he skips bail or a court appearance, ooopppsssiiieee sorry you have lost your bail???

          • jack Jackson

            If you skip bail or miss a court appearance you go to jail, 1st bail bonds co will revoke your bail, you paid them %10 to 15 percent you will never get that money back any way, and the bail bonds company is on the hook for the other %90 percent…they have about 1 year to find any body who skip bail

            • nunya_biz

              really? I post bail for Mr. X. He skips court and I go to jail for posting his bail? yikes

              I get the whole bail bondsman – but if the bail is posted outright, does your analogy still stand?

        • Gabe Reid

          He was pinched with 8000 bags of heroine…. His “boo” has over 70 MILLION left. And just what do you the the odds are **REALISTICALLY** that he’s going back to court and not leaving the country? I think it is YOU who needs to “think”.

          • jack Jackson

            here way go again…so your smarter than a JUDGE and District attorney just say YES, so I can call you stupid..It’s not what I think It’s what the judge thinks, so if all that stuff you said was true…THERE WOULD BE A NO BAIL

              Guess what. “Bail” is a constitutional issue genius.

  • Kiss that money GOOD BYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

    • jack Jackson

      don’t be stupid…Bail works in 2 ways, 1st put up the 9 million when court is finished you get your 9 million back less court costs, 2nd way pay a bail bonds %10 or less for bail. Every bail bonds co in America will be fighting over this big bail $900.000 no refund that’s a big PAYDAY, so one bail bonds man will $250.000 payday, don’t trust internet information

    Marie, you need to protect your children and yourself. Let me speak to you as though I am your Mom. You owe NO man anything and I mean that. Things happen for a reason. Don’t be a FOOL, the universe handed you an opportunity to lift yourself up and out of your OLD situation. Stay away from the dirtbags that drag you into the muck. Get yourself into a nice neighborhood with your children and FAR away from the lowlifes that only pull you down with them. Follow through with your plans to ensure your children’s futures via college funds, etc., but even more so provide them with a SAFE living environment AWAY from drugs and guns, etc… I strongly encourage you to go back to school, develop your skills and grow your mind in positive ways. God blessed you, your first responsibility is to your children and yourself, NOT some drug dealing, gun toting dirtbag that will only ever take advantage of you and drag you down. You deserve a BETTER man than that. Wise up before you lose EVERYTHING. When I read your story inthe news, I was really happy for you and I still am, you have a chance to change your children lives and your own for the better, please do! Take Care!!!

    She can spend her money any way she wants, and if that includes spending 9 million of it to bail her deadbeat boyfriend out of jail temporary, so be it.

    I wouldn’t feel that jealous this girl has all this money, she will either blow it on something stupid and we will be reading another one of those lottery rags to riches and back to rags story. Or because her boyfriend is involved with drugs, the drug guys will know she has money because she paid 9 million to bail her no good boyfriend out of jail, someone will try to rob them and she may accidentally become a victim.

    Besides, that much drugs, do you think the boyfriend is going to show up to court.

    • jack Jackson

      O my god, it’s so sad, THINK stop being fooled all the time….there are 2 ways to make bond, 1st she has 88 million dollars cash, you go to the court and give them 9 million cash, and when he is done with his court dates, you get your 9 million dollars back, less some court cost. 2nd is bail bonds man witch you don’t need.

  • 87marine

    Isn’t that so reflective of what’s wrong in the black culture? She wins the lottery, and, so far, has given more than 10 % away to a lost cause–to a pure looser-for-life in the first degree. If her diatribe about us worrying over her money–“What Y’all need to be worried about is Y’all money and not how I spend mine ….”–isn’t bad enough, if we chose to forgive boundless stupidity, if we accept her bad choices in life as being simply “a black thaang”,we have the writer of the article, supposedly an unbiased, objective journalist, telling us, “…we really don’t have any right to tell her what to do with her money…If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s for people to count other folks’ money.” Well, Veronica Wells, you are wrong. Ms.. Holmes has demonstrated her gross incompetence in handling her financial matters. In short order, Ms. Holmes will be broke and certainly back on welfare where she undoubtedly was before she won. Four kids at 26 years of age, and let me be so bold as to wager a fairly sum that Ol’ Lamarr McDow is not the father off all four, if he is the father of any of the four. (But that really doesn’t matter one way or the other in black neighborhoods because more than 70% of those households have no father in the home anyway.) Bad enough Ms. Holmes is even connected to a major drug dealer–and folks, if you have 8000 bags of heroine in your possession, you are a dealer. That quantity of drugs is not for “personal use,” and heroine is no equivalent to marijuana–not even close. Lamarr is in big trouble, will be going away for a long time, and it doesn’t even mean crap that Ms. Holmes has all those millions to put money on his books in prison for many years. Consider the four children who Ms. Holmes mothered, then factor in this: “Three children were present at the time of the arrest, McDow said they were his children.” Sad. Very, very sad. Mainly because LaMarr was only doing what he probably saw in his own home growing up. He had no chance at life from the beginning, and that is hard to take. What do you think is the fate of those seven children this affects? This whole tale of woe is just a microcosmic peek at what’s wrong with the black culture, what they have to fix, and what they have been too cowardly to do for over fifty years. It is too easy to blame the white folks for enslaving them and ruining their future. It’s too easy to listen to the likes of Al “Shakedown” Sharpton tell them they are victims, it’s not their fault, they have no responsibility for their current condition, and that the white man owes them. You see it in Ms. Holmes who resents being scrutinized for gross negligence in both her choice of a companion and handling her financial affairs, in LaMarr for falling into the trap of easy money and the rapper lifestyle, and, most surprising of all, even Veronica Wells who is more intent on apologizing for the stupidity of Ms. Holmes, the “bad luck” of LaMarr, and her take is, “If Holmes wants to spend up her newfound fortune on a man, in and out of jail, that’s her decision to make….we’ve all done crazy, foolish and even expensive things for love.” Well, Veronica, I see you too have been bitten by that bad bug going around in black ghettos for more than fifty years, which keeps the black people in poverty, in prison, and out of schools, good jobs, and civilized neighborhoods where it is safe to raise a family. No, Veronica, we have every right to criticize the spending habits of Ms. Holmes if only to hope she someday repays the welfare dollars–with interest–I can only surmise she received for years from us, taxpayers. Apologizing, blaming others, and minimizing black shortcomings by blacks themselves will never overcome the mountain of despair in their culture over the murder rates, crime, imprisoned family members, lack of education, and the general maize of bad habits inherent in it. Pity Ms. Holmes for her stupidity, feel sad for LaMarr for his inevitable fate, but have nothing but contempt for Vanessa for her poorly written, negligent approach to shining light on the problems of the black culture, and life in the ghetto. I can only hope she will do better next time.

    You wish that people who get this kind of money will do GOOD!!! It is obvious this ‘pretty’ woman will end up broke and destitute with this criminal drug addict/dealer!!! She could be so much to so many with this money and make a GREAT live for her children, grand children and great grand children. INSTEAD, she has already shown what will become of her, her kids and the money. Very sad to hear about this. Was hoping for the best with this lady, but it is obvious it will not end well.

    you missed the biggest point, we have been told repeatedly by the media and government, particularly the democrat party, that these poor underprivileged people are stuck in urban blight. They are disadvantaged because of a lack of equality, and racism is holding them down. Well here is a perfect example of what will happen if the government were to make reprimands to the black community for past slavery, nothing. Nothing would change except the amount and level of crime, drugs, and shootings when they all start wanting the others money because they blew through theirs. If you really want to help, giving them large sums money is not the answer. She has enough to get herself, her children, and her entire family out, and start a new clean healthy life without ever having to work again, but she wont, she will wind up dead in a drug related shooting, her children parent-less and wards of the state until they reach age 21, and we will wind up paying for it until they can legally access the money.

    What is new? This is the sad case of black women today who can’t seem to stay away from the thugs.

    I was just having this same discussion with my friend. We are both very successful black men but the trend these days is that black women just love guys who frequent the jails. We see it eveyr time we are at a bar and these thugs walk in there like they are God’s gift to women and they get all the attention while we properly dressed successful men are ignored.

    LEAVE THE THUGS ALONE and the black race will move forward.

    Look at Lauren London who is drop dead gorgeous but has a baby by Lil Wayne and is dating a thug rapper named “Nipsey Hustle”. Sanna Lathan was recently rumored to be dating French Montana; So young black women see this and think its ok to date bad boys / thugs.

    • JAI

      Very true.

      A lot of those women in particular never had a respectable male role model around to set any reasonable standard for what a real man is.

      Then others enjoy the drama and self punishment.

  • Johnnie Perry

    She will end up giving it all to that drug person and become homeless, it is correct no one can tell her what to do or how to spend her money but since she doesn’t know how too, it may I suggest you buy a home and pay for it before it is gone and put some of it a fund for her kids that she can’t touch it until they are old enough to attend college if they choose to go which I doubt that will happen

  • Agent Smith

    Dumb and dumber.

  • zibozap

    And this is yet another reason a lot of other races think black people are ancestors of tree monkeys. You have to respect yourself if you want others to respect you. To name a few, Whitney Houston, Bobby Brown, and .50 cents should be ashamed to make black people look so stupid.

  • Ghetto_scum

    Maybe she should be paying all the welfare back her friends got as free Gibs, only seems fair, they do that in NY state.

    What an “IDIOT” just a dumb woman with money and a Cracker for a BF her money is soon to be all gone , and she’ll be back on assistance .

    Sweetie, do you really want that “man” around your children? Whether he is the father, or not, I wouldn’t trust him anywhere near the kids. Really! You can probably BUY yourself someone much better than this loser.

  • vp

    how stupid can one get? 26 mother of 4 engaged to a drug dealer or user-abuser. Wake up woman and smell some crack and use your freaking brain. losers will never change. 9 mil spent on a loser to get him out on bail. Think of those children and their education. don’t raise them to think its ok to have drug dealers-users for a GF or a BF to hang around with or spend their ives with. What a shame!

  • Sabrina Mason

    Definitely her business not mine but DAMN!!! Idiot! Dumb, Dumb, Dumb. Why be bothered with a dude like that? I can’t wrap my head around women like her.

  • Gabe Reid

    Blacks are for the most part, ignorant and pathetic pavement apes who are unable to be civilized regardless of their economic/financial status in society. They embrace a “thug life” mentality because of their inability to just be an “average American” and constantly feel the need to be larger than life, louder then everyone else, and more racist then ANY ethnic group on the planet! Their lack of identity serves ONLY to make them constantly take the victims stance every chance that they get, and lash out at the world because of their own self induced short comings. What a pathetic race and insult to humanity….

    • billofnga

      Why don’t y’all move on out to Ferguson, MO and protest in front of some of those bullets? dumbfukks~!

      • Gabe Reid

        Oh they’re already started. I have a feeling that its going to get real ugly over there now that this latest thug managed to get himself shot for merely shooting at police. Im NOT a big fan of big government or militarized police but believe that, should law enforcement start treating these animals like the terrorists that they are and CLEAN HOUSE there in Ferguson setting an example as to what happens when you terrorize this nation with lawlessness and violence, they’ll think twice next time. Im talking take off the gloves and shoot to kill ANY of those black American terrorists in high volumes and w/o prejudice!

  • skoallio

    Her boyfriend be back in jail in no time and she have no money.

  • VetNet

    Without researching, simply based on the article and the language used, I guess Ms. Wells is black.
    She uses this entire article to “justify” and “rationalize” the woman’s behavior and actions. Not once did she mention or ask about the woman’s four children, but chose to “glorify” her “main man” who had 8,000 bags of heroin. Then got busted again, WITH A GUN, with other people in the house not related to either (or she would have mentioned it).
    So Ms. Wells notes what we ALL might do – we don’t now, why would we change? Then comments “Truth be told, shake our heads and wag our finger,,,”.
    Well lady, your nature is showing. And no, I don’t care if all the crack heads kill themselves, but her four children concern me. Obviously it doesn’t bother Ms. Wells, sounds like she just wants to party with the crackheads.

  • marie

    stupid is as stupid does!

  • Vickie Mace

    personally, id like to see the woman take that money, and her children, and just disappear with it. if you cant disappear with 88 million dollars.. then just shoot yourself in the head. at least let the kids have a real life somewhere away from the insanity she apparently wants to live in. shame.

  • Wreck7

    She’s right. It aint nobodys business except hers.

  • Brian

  • JT

    No, most of us would not be spending $9,000,000 or even $9 bailing out our relatives from jail, because most of us do not have heroin dealing relatives in jail, or are engaged to drug dealers.
    The funny thing is that Miss Holmes is the typical example of a lottery winner who will no doubt be broke and destitute 10 years from now because she doesn’t have common sense or the intelligence to manage wealth. I’d also go as far to bet that her d-bag fiancé will get her to help him expand his illegal enterprises by funding him with her winnings.

    I used to believe that is a purpose in everything and everything happened for a reason. Universe ( or God) made a freaking mistake when it handed those money to this poor excuse of a woman.

  • Anthony

    I’m sorry, I have to disagree with the article. There is no way in heck I would ever spend $8 million to bail out a loved one. If your bail is more than a $1M your sorry butt probably deserves to be there – Sorry grandma.

  • Janet McGuire

    The Whole thing just pisses me off !!! She doesn’t even deserve to have those children when this is the environment she is raising them in, the lotto money she won will just feed her own causes and those kids will likely not get thru college with any help from her or their dad……its all just plain ridiculous to allow criminals and/or their enablers to have that kind of money or children in their care !!! There is no responsibility or accountability and I for one am tired of having to see it, hear about it and pay taxes to fund programs that ultimately just keep breathing air into these losers !!

        I happen to be white dumb a. Money has little to do with the press. White ppl do not stick together like blacks. You get in trouble with the law your white friends will say you deserved it, 88 mil or not.. They won’t save you. They believe a cop before their own mommas….and you know it.Racists POS.

  • CeeCee

    It would be okay if she squander her money on herself, but this young woman has four children and if she is spending her time and money on opportunistic drug dealer! There needs to be some concern for her children welfare and safety. It’s so sad it so many women with low self esteem, will let any old piece trash come into their children’s lives and mess up the children’s lives and so then you have generational ineptitude. This loser will spend all her money in less than five years. She will have more children broke and looking for the welfare system to fund her basic needs.
    It just goes to show if they give a dummy money its as though they never had it all, she will be reminiscing on how she had all this money and spent it four seconds flat never thinking of her or her children future. More money, more problems!

  • Guyfromgreenwood

    Obviously no one on here knows the difference between Bail and Bond.
    She posted Bail so she will get all her money back as long as he makes his Court appearances.
    Even if he is found guilty

    • nedmorlef

      maybe. they have ways of keeping that money.

    Well, it’s her money.

  • shawn777bo

    You know what they say about a fool and their money….

  • Posting bail means she gets a big portion of that back assuming he shows up in court. Maybe we should mind our own business and let her decide what to do if he runs and she would then lose the money she put up. She won a lot of money, how she spends it is up to her. JMO

    Just because you win the lottery doesn’t mean that you automatically become intelligent. This woman has been and still is stupid. And you just can’t cure stupid. She will burn through her money as fast as her loving and caring boyfriend can keep going in and out of jail. And, in a year or so, she will be broke and looking for assistance and trying to find her drug selling boyfriend in hopes of getting some help to raise here children. What a disaster this is going to become.

  • komisarka

    See this is why Ms. Pearl don’t date thugs no moe. I almost lost my Buick Park Avenue and all my jewelry running behind a no good man. Pawned my jewels and got a title loan on my car to bail him out of jail after he beat me up outside of his baby mama’s house. Never again baby.

  • nedmorlef

    The judicial system of NC is corrupt as hades itself. I hope she gets her money back but, she won’t w/o a fight. Those bail bondesmen are servants of the devil.

    The cops are liars and that’s why he was jailed as dealer. They knew she had money and they wanted it.

    The majority of drug dealers and users have elevated charges b/c the system in NC allows officers to lie. They call any user a dealer to get the family wealth.

    I’m an insider and I know what I’m talking about. NC rapes anyone they can pin a drug charge on…..and that means you may have never done a drug or seen a drug but, if they can tie you to someone that has they will to get your wealth.That includes stealing your home and confiscating your children.Which they will sell to the highest bidder.

    The drug war doesn’t stop kids from getting drugs, doesn’t stop the flow of drugs…it just allows cops to form organized crime rings to steal and sell drugs.

  • C O

    She is right, it is her money to do with as she wishes. So in about 12 months when she gets on welfare, because she spent it all foolishly, can we as Taxpayers then say, hey it is our money and we don’t wish to spend it on you?

    He’s obviously a heroin dealer because of racism. He’s obviously going to spend a lot of time in jail because of racism. She obviously has four out of wedlock children to multiple father’s because of racism. One thing this country has learned over the past six-and-a-half years is that if you have problems in life and have brown skin, nothing is ever a result of decisions you make. It’s because of racism.

    I’d say she’d better set up a trust fund for her kids who are going to need it if a drug deal goes wrong and she and her boyfriend end meeting their maker. She should also consider the fact that child protective services may not be too happy about the environment her kids are living in.

  • Raider

    Actually, she hasn’t spent anything. Bail is insurance money to insure that a person will show up for trial. If he shows up for trial, the county or state that she posted the bond money with will have to give her the entire amount back. If she would have gone to a bail bondsman, then the bondsman would have charged her a fee (10% in most states). She will only be spending that money if he jumps bail and cannot be found by the deadline for forfeiture of the bond.

    • one way

      He’s going to jump bail.

    I feel really bad for the young lady. She needs help but I’m afraid she won’t listen because she feels that she’s on top of the world right now. I hope she can escape from all of the bad influences around her for the sake of her children. Money doesn’t not make you a better person, it only magnifies your true character. I truly cannot believe that grown adults are on here making some of these comments…smh. I feel bad for some you that have nothing better to do than hurl horrible insults. I just don’t understand what you get out of it. Hiding behind the internet spewing your nastiness all over the place. Just shameful.

  • Deidre Tranter

    How she spends her money does end up affecting us in one way or the other. She claimed she was going to put some back for college for her kids. Instead, some alleged drug dealer is let lose to sell to people on the street, which in turn will start robbing / murdering people or prostituting themselves to get the drugs. Her children will be around a known drug dealer and probably end up like him or dead. If she goes to prison for stuff he has done, then those kids will go into foster homes which isn’t always the best thing either. I do pray for her and hope she realizes the future of her children is at stake. She needs to make the choice on which way she wants it to go though.

  • Mary Finn

    A fool and his money are soon parted… There is a reason some remain poor all their lives. There is a story from eastern philosophy about some Gods taking pity on a blind beggar. Krishna puts a huge ruby in the man’s path, he stumbles over it and hurls it away cursing. Krisha comforts the shocked gods by telling them that a party of merchants will find the jewel and become rich by it. “As for him, further down the road is a loaf of bread and a jar of water….”

    I’d be more likely to believe that she paid the 10% that people pay, not the whole 9 million (900,000 sounds a hell of a lot better than 9 million). But it seems like people write these articles without verifying the information prior to publication.

    • one way

      They pay 10 percent because they have something else securing the 90 percent like real property. This is the kind of person, having 88 million in her pocket, probably didn’t bat an eye at the money because she’s obviously ignorant in financial matters and stupid in her choice of lifestyle.

    Would have been a better use of the money to just throw it over the enclosure walls at the monkey exhibit at the zoo.

  • javierlee

    That’s probably not accurate. You don’t have to put up all the money for bail, just 10%. I doubt 10% was $9 million. Now if they jump bail, it’s $9 million. But, any way you look at it, seems pretty stupid to make such a bad choice in romantic partners then throw that kind of money away because of it.

  • Mystery47

    And NOW you understand why the Black communities can’t improve themselves. Just look at how this girl’s mind works. By the way, did she ever think to pay back all the welfare and social service money that her family has been collecting for generations? No, of course not.

    Are you kidding me? Nobody is trying to tell this woman how to spend her money, but if YOU’RE being honest, you can’t tell me that you don’t think this woman is being foolish and thoroughly irresponsible. And, what about her four children? I noticed that you conveniently left them out of your “apologist” argument. 88 million dollars, and you let some lame-brained jerk of a no good boyfriend bring drugs into your home? To further compound her stupidity, she bails this jackass out of jail so he can continue plying his trade. Then, on top of that, she has the nerve to get ticked off at observers who dare criticize her. She is also a hypocrite; claiming to be a “Christian”! What “Christian” allows drugs to be dealt from his/her home? Nobody needs a crystal ball to see what lies at the end of her Yellow Brick Road!

  • NCC-1701

    Yes, I’m being judgmental. She’s an IDIOT.

    Let her do what she wants but Get the kids out of that mess or you will never break the cycle , make sure money is put away for the kids that she or the dirt bag involved can not touch it.

  • FranklinsGhost

    Her money will be gone in no time at all just like every other person who gains quick money with little effort

  • Shaggy

    its not really about how she spends her money…its the fact that most normal people wouldnt accept the kind of behavior her boyfriend displays. Most folks would kick a drug dealer to the curb. Now this woman has something to actually lose and yet she isnt smart enough to surround herself with contributing members of society. Yeah so she loves this person and thats what you do for people you love?….ok…..not an issue…..if she loved this person then shed practice real love and get him help….get him as far from that lifestyle as she could….but she didnt. She allowed him to continue with his thug ways with a thug mindset. Just goes to prove you can take the woman out of the ghetto but not the ghetto out of the woman.

  • Clif

    Black people that COMES in to money, do some of that damned craziest things with it. Boyfriend would rot in jail if I had to put up 9 mil for him to get out. Damn lady, you got three kids and wasting that kind of money on lawyers and bondsmen. You are a new fool. And don’t give me that GOD stuff. If you were a servant, you would not have him in your life. So leave GOD out of your screw up life. But you are about one thing, “it’s your money.” Too bad you don’t know how to use it. Dumb!

  • mkianni@yahoo.com

    It’s my understanding that she put up the whole amount, not going through a bondsman, which means she gets a full refund on the cash when he goes to court. So whats the problem? In all honesty she isnt going to lose a dime.

  • Buck Rogers

    Amazing how some people have all the dumb luck in the world! She should have let that loser rot!

    You’re right. It is your money, but dumbasses with a lot of money are STILL dumbasses.

    Again, clean opportunity to live a wonderful life. Why do stuff that keeps on you on the fringe of the bad side of the law? The ONLY reason to do drug related criminal activity would be to get ahead. Well, you’re financially ahead of 99% of America. Why involve yourself in activity that only leads to jail or death?

    If your boy wants to continue down that path, then you have a decision to make. I don’t love anyone that much to remain one step away from death or jail. Sorry.

    I call BS on this story.

    Nobody is pegged for a $3 million bail for any offense and even if they were,
    that money is held and refunded when they show up for court.
    That’s why it’s called a bond and the money isn’t ‘spent’ on bail.

    This is the problem with huge lotto winnings. Someone gets an enormous amount of money and squanders it. I am not saying they all do, but we have all seen the shows about lotto winners and their sad stories of wasting the money that could have helped so many. The lotto games need to have more winners that win less money. If you had 10 million dollars and 10 people in a state each won a million, wouldn’t that be more helpful to the community than one fool with 10 million? Think of the ramifications if that were compounded. The powerball is frequently over 100 million. A hundred million dollars! No one single person should win that. This lady is going to end up dead. How sad that she can’t see the forest for the dusting of heroin…

  • Daniel Wayne Williams

    One more ting, at then end of the article he says if we had money we would be bailing someone we love out of trouble. Not in my family. I have NEVER had anyone in jail for ANYTHING in my whole family. We are plain ol’ hardworking middle class folk. No drugs, nor DUI’s. No back child support….
    no kids out of wedlock…..Guess we don’t know how to live right.

  • Tony Creswell

    I wouldn’t think of telling her how to spend her money. Idiots won’t receive good advice anyway. If she spent that much on bail, she paid the full amount. Which means if her thug boyfriend skips out she looses all that money. But, Oh well, easy come easy go. With the kind of boyfriend she has, it won’t take her long to spend all of that money bailing him out of jail.

  • Lorenzo Graziano

    Normally the people who play the lottery do not have money for a reason. Case in point.

    in about another year we will be paying for her and them 5 kids through welfare. you cant cure stupid.

  • prisspot

    She will be completely broke and back on welfare in no time, with absolutely nothing to show for all that money. Sad.

  • Pepper

    She is a loser big time…..Feel very sorry for her children and they should be taken away from her. Lottery winners should be forced….yes, forced to have a trust set up or a financial adviser. Druggie boyfriend and she can’t figure it all out. She won’t have any left or will be murdered, or something. How pathetic.

  • CeeHowUR

    Something isn’t quite adding up in this article. Typically you only pay a % of the bail amount. so either the article is wrong about how much she actually paid, or bail was a ridiculous amount.

    waste of flesh with a lot of money for now..but not for long

  • luminaughty

    I have to wonder if being a single mom with several kids if it was the tax payers who did most of the supporting before she won the lottery. If that was the case it would kind of be like a slap to the face of the tax payers who likely helped fund her lottery ticket habit. No telling how many times she played before winning but I think its safe to say it was a LOT.

  • If you win the lottery,everyone you know and everyone you have never met is going to ask you for money, for both good and bad reasons. You need to learn to say no to most of them until you decide how you want to spend and save your winnings. Otherwise, you could have nothing left before you know it.

    This may be one of the hardest things you’ll have to do. Rest assured, some people will pressure, threaten, or otherwise try to manipulate you to get their way.

    An easy out can be to say you’ve agreed to discuss everything first with your financial advisor or your parents. Pick one and use it if someone just won’t let up. #mintcofinancial

  • CeeHowUR

    If we played the lottery, then we have every right to criticize how someone else spends their winnings. That’s part of the fun, is dreaming how we would spend it and telling everyone how generous we would be. But when it comes down to it, most likely the greed factor will take over.

I on the other hand will pray that you wake up before you end up in jail again, dead, or losing your kids. I guess money doesn’t make you happy or smart !!

  • HUNNYMONEY

    Really? We don’t have the right to tell her how to spend her
    money? That’s what this is all about you say? Well sorry but I’m having trouble
    seeing it that way. What about the fact that she is exposing her children to
    8,000 BAGS OF HEROINE? That didn’t seem to give you pause at all. What about
    the fact that she is in complete denial about her boyfriend’s chosen “profession”
    including the very real dangers associated with being involved with a man in
    that trade. She has already blown over 10% of her good fortune bailing out this
    “bastion of human virtue” when she could be using the money to better her
    childrens’ futures. Instead she hangs onto this loser who is PUTTING HER
    CHILDRENS’ LIVES IN DANGER. The drug trade is violent and cutthroat and drug
    dealers don’t care who they have to hurt to cash in, yet she continues to
    support a man who is clearly involved in that trade and thus incurs the
    considerable risk associated with it, a risk that is passed on to her and her
    children by virtue of her relationship with him. I won’t argue that her money
    is hers and she has the right to spend it how she chooses as long as it doesn’t
    break the law. However I believe that this is a situation where the state’s
    Child Protection Division needs to take a hard look at this and decide if she
    is endangering her children as it clearly appears she is doing and if so to
    take steps to remove them from that potentially violent, deadly environment
    before one of them pays for their mom’s foolishness with their young life.

    • Bea

      But $3 and $6 million bails? don’t people usually pay 10%, so are we talking about a $30 million dollar bail and a $60 million dollar bail… What did this guy do? Shoot someone? The campus officer who shot the guy in the head while cranking his car to leave posted only a $1 million bail… Something is not right about this story…

  • Alvin Grooms

    If you had 88 Million dollars, why the heck would you have to sell drugs anymore? Isn’t that the reason you play to win so you can start over in life? Like they said, it’s not our place to judge but I hope she realizes soon before it’s too late.

Also, if she paid $3 million to post bail, does that mean that the initial bail was set at $30 million and she paid 10%? And the second bail was set at $60 million, since she paid $6 million? Frankly, I don’t believe this story!!!

    Girl, all he’s gonna do is drag you down. If he hasn’t already got you hooked on drugs too. In that case the money won’t last long at all and the kids will never get any benefit from it. Please wise up and take care of yourself and your precious children.

  • Bernie38

    Okay, if you don’t want us to take a negative look at 8,000 bags of heroin, then why even print this stupid story? And if “Y’all” don’t want us to criticize this woman, then don’t print crap like this Y’all !

  • Mike Hunt

    he’s probably got a good way to “invest” that money- and she appears to be of like mind to agree. Not even PowerBall can get the hood out of this ghetto princess.

  • liam0530

    How about a responsibility to her children’s future? Will t hey end up like the boyfriend? Probably so, what a said situation.

  • Jeremy Rhett Gillespie

    Money obviously doesn’t improve hood.. that $88,000,000 could be changing lives for the better, instead it went to a stupid lowlife … wonderful

    This woman is a total idiot y’all.

  • Don Berry

    Lottery: called a tax on the stupid. Here is case in point, I guess.

  • Shaggy

    typical. drug thug lifestyle.

  • Steve

    She probably spent money that she really couldn’t afford to lose on the lottery tickets and she got extremely lucky. Not smart, lucky. She is continuing to show poor judgment by having a relationship with a drug dealer in the same house as her four children. If she continues on this path, she will blow through the money and even worse, find herself in dangerous situations that could jeopardize her health and safety and the health and safety of her children

  • Capt.Steve Thompson

    This just goes to prove the only way out of ignorance is education. Money doesn’t do it. What a waste. And OBTW–was anybody REALLY surprised to read this? . Black Lives Matter? REALLY???

  • TEXAS DAWG

    As others have pointed out, when someone with limited financial experience comes into a large sum of money, it is very common for them to squander it in no time. Even pro athletes who have agents who SHOULD be helping them wind up broke a few years out of the league even after making millions. Watch ESPN’s 30 for 30 “BROKE”. It is not uncommon at all. The National Endowment for Financial Education cites research estimating that 70 percent of people who suddenly receive a large sum of money will lose it within a few years.

  • AOL

    Blacks folks have issues when they are poor and when they have money. She bailed out what he had in his pants. Tommy Sotomayor is correct what he says about sisters is true.

  • flatlander

    I don’t care one bit about the money, but how many people would they have killed the 8000 bags of dope

  • Nicole Wright

    she’s an idiot. I guess certain things comes with age. You have your children around a man that bail was set a 3 million
    dollars. I dnt get it, that D— must be really good. I bet she will be in the news again, lottery winner is now broke and homeless with four kids.

  • TJim

    I feel sorry for her, she was/is ill prepared for that windfall. When she came out right away and claimed the money, I knew that it was going to be a short ride. There was no prep or planning for the management of such a large sum of money. Unfortunately, I don’t see her having a dollar in another 3 years, but I hope that I’m wrong.

  • Rebel_Lady

    You can’t fix stupid, no matter how much money you throw at it. I have news for her–They don’t set that amount of bail unless they have a whole lot of evidence.

  • Pameela

    She’s comparing people talking about her like they talked about Jesus? Lady please! Fools will say anything when they don’t want to be held accountable for their bad behaviors.

He just happened to have 8000 bags of heroin laying around that he was just holding for a friend…..yeah right. Sad that an idiot had to win that much.

  • larry wilson

    One word,can you spell stupid.

  • Wayne Dooley

    More proof that money doesn’t change who you really are. Or raise your consciousness and self respect. If you examine her life, you’ll find she has always made irresponsible and illogical decisions. Many celebrities and professional athletes leave their careers in financial ruin, because they have always lead a reckless life due in part to their immaturity and shortsightedness.

  • Scott Dilley

    I might have to go and see this chick. She needs a guy like me in her life to guide her in the right direction.

  • odamaybrownsugar

    Shortly after she won the money, Holmes posted $3 million bond for her boyfriend Lamarr McDow. McDow was in jail, facing heroin trafficking charges. McDow was implicated after an investigation unearthed more than 8,000 bags of heroin. OMG is she from FERGUSON ? LMFAO

  • Guestest

    What a dumb@ss. If i was in her position, my focus would be my kids and me.. nothing else is more important. Not bailing out some man (who clearly doesn’t care about his own life) when he’s just going to get locked right back up.

  • EmeraldEyes1

    This woman is an idiot! She’s a single mother with 4 children, and that should be her priority instead of spending millions of dollars on her criminal boyfriend. If she had any brains at all she would ditch the boyfriend, move away, and concentrate on her life and providing for her children. She won a huge amount of money, which will mean that she and her daughters will never have to worry about money again, if she’s not stupid. If she keeps on squandering her money like this, she’ll be broke. She’s a young woman, she’s beautiful, but she’s stupid. I hope, at least, that she’s gone to a financial consultant and made arrangements for her daughters to be taken care of. If she wants to wind up broke, that’s her problem, but her daughters should come first.

  • John C

    Well Ms. Holmes…I think people were rooting for you. I’m sure you’re a good person, but you’ll soon find that there are people in this world who aren’t, and will take you for all you’re worth. I hope you find that out while you still have some of your riches left.

  • Brett Burkitt

    The author writes…”While we can certainly question Holmes’ choices in both men and behavior, we really don’t have any right to tell her what to do with her money.” …and I agree. But let’s see how consistent she is with this approach.

  • Ginny

    That dude would have rotted in jail and I would have found a new man. Then again, I’d never, ever get involved with a drug dealer. They are low life scumbags.

  • Cyclone-power

    You all understand that bail money is not necessarily giving all that money away right? It is just money that the court holds, until the trial is complete. Then the money is returned. If the person who has been bailed out does not show up for trial – then the money is forfeit. If the man shows up for trial she won’t loose anything other than court costs. She is still stupid, but she sure trusts her man.

Put a generous amount of the money in a bank for your children. Your money could dwindle very quickly with the way it sounds like things may be going on. A bank account for each of your children could be the wisest investment you may possibly make for now and their future. Don’t let your boyfriend (fiancé or whatever) or anyone blow it for you. You are the responsible one.

  • JaLynn

    The most stupid woman I have ever read about. She has 4 kids that she could think of, and put away for their colleges, and secure their futures. Instead, she will spend millions on a felon and druggie. If I’m not mistaken, it is a felony to be in possession of a weapon while on probation.

  • R Levy

    Let’s see, single, four children, unemployed, and a boy friend who pushes drugs. If the money used to purchase the powerball ticket came out of public welfare or other funds then any member of the public has a right to comment on how this women spends the public’s money. With local, state, and federal legislatures so eager to pass laws why not one that says …if you or anyone in your care are on any form of public assistance then (1) all winnings from any gambling or other venture will automatically be forfeited to the state and/or federal government and (2) you will automatically be disqualified from receiving any further public assistance for a minimum of 12 months.

I guess she think she is doing the right thing by her boo thing or whatever but once I get you out once and you do something to violate and get yourself back in then um my work would be done. Somebody needs to counsel her about her finances bc she is likely to be broke in a few more years. It’s sad. I see why so many ppl said winning the lottery is a gift and a curse…. but shiiiiid I’ll take it! hahahaha

  • whereisthemoney

    She better realize that associating with heroin dealers may get her killed. Then her good fortune and the promising future of her children will go down the drain.

  • akingbelowkings

    thats just pathetic….

  • the Doctor

    i am sure her boyfriend is in control of the money .she doesn’t have a say in how it gets spent.hood rats never do right thing with money.i hope she goes through it quickly because she didn’t deserve the win in the first place.if that’s the type of life she wants for herself then keep doing what your doing because when the money is gone its gone and you only have yourself to blame for how you blew it.i think a more responsible person can see were this is heading for her.too bad she cant see the wrong she is doing.god will make it right with those that squander his gifts.

  • Sean Murphy

    I thought she was a decent girl when I saw the interviews when she won. I guess she’s as ghetto as can be. With that sort of money you don’t need to be around the criminal lifestyle anymore. i just don’t get it. Anyway, she’ll be broke or dead before 2020 that’s for sure.

  • hi

    waste of space

  • Liz Simons

    What I find appalling is not how she’s spending HER money. It’s the fact that she’s putting HER children in harms way by associating with a drug dealer. The original story last month said she’s a mother herself. One of the kids is mentally disabled. As a mother you put your child’s well being far ahead of your own wants and needs.

  • cmi

    Sure isn’t any of my business, but it certainly sounds like those millions will be put to good use!! I’m sure that once she spends it all on her beloved crack user friends, she can go back on the government welfare plan!!!

    Evidently the writer doesn’t know that the person who bails someone out of jail only puts up 10% of the required bail.

    • Jason

      Depends on if it’s a 10% bond or a cash bond, which is the full amount. People who are likely to flee, and more serious crimes, get a cash bond.

      • Osai

        Its 10 % to the Bail Bondsman who then pledges the cash. Don’t you watch the Dog??

    • Manny Hundal

      I think they anticipate your financial situation when setting bail. The whole point is that running away would screw you over financially or you can’t afford it and sit in prison. If they new he’s dating a multi-millionaire, a normal size bail wouldn’t be very effective.

  • lrg1971

    I get so sick of my people talking about what isn’t anybody’s business.

    I truly hope she lives a great life with her family and this money and maybe even turns her man away from the drug culture.. it’s not like he needs to hustle anymore.. HATERS!

    • Heather

      He violated parole and they found more heroin in the house so I am guessing he hasnt given up his lifestyle

  • ym

    I hope that will be her last 9 million she spent on him…Otherwise she will just waste her luck…

  • blacksun7

    If your stupid enough to believe everything the media says than you are trully a fool!

  • Cupcake

    she needs an intervention by someone who cares and is able to assist and not just talk her to death

  • Irma

    A fool and his/her money are soon parted.

  • MAD DOG

    These have been very poor life decisions. Druggies, both users and sellers, rarely change until FORCED TO, by whatever means. In the meantime, they will take every dime anyone has got to get more of whatever they see to enjoy. This woman will be dead within a few years if she continues on with this “criminal”. And he is going to jail, if he lives that long. Sad story.

  • guest

    half the money is not gone.. 44 million is half. and she’s dumb… ya guy

  • Mrs Breezy

    Stupid

  • Joe

    1/2 of the money is already be gone, she will probably buy 20 Cadillac’s for her whole family and friends with the rest of what is not spent on future bails to bondsmen and of course crack, new pipes and lighters will leave her broke in a blink of a eye

  • guest

    amazing how many people are calling her stupid.. she won the lottery you didn’t

    • Manny Hundal

      not sure how winning the lottery makes a person not stupid

    I wonder where he got the money to buy the H?

    Thought she would do something good with her money ,,,,,guess not , she’s been in the news
    to much ………..give her 5 years and she will be broke ……
    That worse thing she could’ve won ………..She has drugs in the house with her kids …..
    She’s wasting her money …..soon we will read ……….She’s Broke !
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    She’s to young and stupid ……..she should’ve a financial advisor , tax lawyer , CPA ,
    or a trustee to manage that money …..the right way ……

  • ameme

    When your stupid and poor its sad but when your really this stupid and very rich its disgusting because idiot’s spend their money on the dumbest things and most useless people ..
    She will be broke and broke down within a year but boyfriend will drive off in a fine car gold tacky chains and a new idiot by his side.. Got to really pity stupid LOL !

  • Mel

    I say she should be focusing on her children and herself..Bailing out B/F from jail seems quite the opposite of positive direction in my opinion..Sad and completely defeating the positive purpose she could be doing with her life with her kids…
    After RE-reading this article..The kids need removed from this household with all of the drug dealing garbage that inhabits it…Again , very sad…

  • Guest

    No, I would not bail a deadbeat, caught with 8,000 bags of heroin, repeat felon, loser bf even ONCE, let alone TWICE. I’d let him rot in jail, because there’s NO WAY I’d spend that kind of money and expose kids to that hot mess. Maybe YOU would, Veronica Wells, but some of us actually have common sense and self-respect.

  • Jim Tebo

    Beautiful, young, rich, and just plain stupid, “he ain’t no drug dealer ” guess not, what was he doing with 8,000 bags of heroin. This mother could be doing so much good with her money, making a future for her children, but what is she doing, bailing some low life out of jail, twice. It is her money and when she gets back on welfare she will be happy then

  • Martin Carmichael

    There is only one saying that comes to mind at this time it is, a fool and his money will soon part.

  • Sturgeon General

    she evidently didn’t qualify for a bail bondsman

  • n71i .

    Her man will probably marry her then O.D. the dumb A$$ lady and try to inherit all the cash but get caught for forgetting to plan it out well…

    why is this news. Does anybody think that once a moron obtains money that they are no longer a moron??? You cant fix stupid with any amount of money!!

    It’s to bad that having this post all over the internet now the CPS hasn’t stepped in and taken her kids.

  • Thais Anne Lumpp-Lamkie

    Can’t fix stupid.

  • Linda

    Winning millions doesn’t change who you are, you have to want to change regardless of whether you are rich or poor. Apparently, she’s happy with herself, the money is irrelevant.

  • gambllere

    fisrt off, she needs to have her tubes tied, then get another boyfriend or girlfriend and get the hell out of where she is ……. with that money, a shrink might also be in order

  • George Spalding

    Her money will be gone within 2 years if she’s stupid enough to be with this guy. He and his buddies will “share” the wealth no doubt.

  • guest

    who cares. she can spend her money however she wants, and you can happily judge her for it.
    She’s rich and she’ll probably own enough land and make enough money in interest that she’ll never have to work again.. jealous haters.

  • Joe

    She sure doesn’t have any type of edumacation (spelled education) or even common sense Wow what a idiot !!!!!!! She be smoking a lot of crack for as long as the cash lasts, Then back to the welfare line to wait for her issue of food stamps also. I should set up post at her front door with a sack of dope for the moron to spend all that money…Probably too late for that evidently she already has all the dope dealers living with her……..She B, N-Rich now

  • Trish

    I can’t fix the stupid part of this woman…but with a little education, she might learn how to save and invest money. I shake my head wondering how to pay for my daughter, a straight A student, to go to college and this dumbshit is wasting 9million no a felon. Maybe you should have to take a test to see if you have the brains to play the lotto.

  • Sturgeon General

    so sad that such a fine looking woman is hung up on a criminal like that, I guess you can never really escape your own environment.

    • Kosher Spice

      Would it be less sad if she weren’t fine looking? What someone looks like should not define their importance.

      • Sturgeon General

        you are right of course, but I think in our society the better looks often lead to the better opportunities.

  • uatu13

    Sounds about right. Pretty pathetic.

  • laura

    All I got to say is what a dumb as. You spend that kinda of money to bail out a loser and risk having your kids taken away. For him. Dumb As.. I guess that money didn’t teach you anything…

  • Reese

    Many times as women, we do foolish things for men who are not deserving or would not do the same for us. We give unnecessarily and lose focus on those who matter. It’s a shame she is given such a great opportunity and wasting it.

  • Jennylind Lisa Cunningham-Gibb

    This is so sad, why can you just realize that God gave you a new lease on life and to take care of your children and mother…She will end up spending all that money out not investing it to make a profit or nothing like that. How the hell can you be so dumb. Get some professional advice. This is why a lot of people with a good head don’t be fortunate enough to win things like this…….sigh..

    She’s right. It’s none of our business. However, her refusal to listen to the feedback is a sure sign she will lose this money fairly quickly. People may need to ignore what she is doing, but it doesn’t mean what they are saying to her is wrong. You can be defensive, or you can try to learn. Whatever. In the end it’s her choice.

    She is right..I did look at some earlier pics of her and she has spent some money on herself which is fine…. Doesn’t she get the bail money back if the bf shows up for court?

    The real crime is she hit for $188m and she only brought home $88m. She will one day apply for public assistance after she blows all that money on stupid stuff like church and her relatives. I rest assure you they all have their hands out…

  • Wendell Radford

    I had a girlfriend like this. She can pull off the whole, “I’m struggling, but god will help me” vibe when she knows your watching, but at the root, she’s trash. Nothing more, nothing less…. I guarantee, she will have nothing to show for the money in 5 years and hope her children don’t find out about it when she’s older and why they can’t go to college.

  • -Nate

    Sadly she’s clearly shown she’s not to bright twice : taking the smaller amount of $ in the first place then bailing out her obviously druggie boy friend and LYING about him .

    8,000 dime bag means DRUG DEALER , no ifs and nor buts .

    Too bad really .

  • flabbybuns

    No amount of money can fix stupid. I have a fear we are going to see an article about her (or this guy) becoming deceased, since they are obviously surrounded by a criminal element.

  • icemilkcoffee

    Since the boyfriend has not skipped bail, she has not ‘spent’ $9million. If she posted the bail herself, she got every cent of it back when her boyfriend showed up for the trial.

  • Joe Turcotte

    I am not even going to read this article, it sounds too damn depressing, but I will comment. There is no way in hell I’d use my money to bail someone out of jail. She just made me glad I am not involved with anyone. I guess she must be on drugs, too. Po thang.

  • teacookies

    You just can’t fix stupid. I’ll pray for her because by the time that boyfriend is done she won’t have a pot to **** in or a window to throw it out of.

  • Ramona Silvestri

    To be educated on several important subjects in life is so important. When you are in your twenties and have the means to get a college degree that is all that should matter. She is in a perfect place to get a business and finance education. I knew day one when I saw this story of this winner her first investment move should have been to relocate to a more progressive environment. Like California or Vermont but to stay with all the people she was raised with could be her doom. She could lose everything if she is not careful and her kids should be the highest priority safety and education first!

I hope she gets the help she needs and moves on from that loser!!

  • alexa

    She’s a loser. Someone will kill her to get their hands on her money.

  • Robert Beavers

    This is ignorant nonsense. Notwithistanding the exorbitantly high bail for the alleged crimes, This woman did not pay 3 and 6 million dollars to bail out her boyfriend. At most she had to come out of pocket for a total of $900,000, as just 10% of the posted bail amount is needed to bail out..

  • disgustedwithlibs1

    She won $188 million winnings.. she was awarded $127 million in 1 lump sum…. (What happened to the 61 million difference)…. And after taxes, she received $88 million ?

    • Andrew Schliewe

      The lump sum is always less than the amount for the 30 year annunity which is the one that is always publicized. The lottery commission only needs to put about 100 Million into the annuity which should earn enough over the 30 yrs to pay out the 188.

      • maxx1676

        Thank you for the reply Andrew, that makes sense .

  • quack quack motherfucker

    It’s the same story as you see with so many athletes. Giving someone who makes bad decisions money usually isn’t going to lead them to change their ways, they just end up with the money to do more of the same.

    She does get the bail money back minus whatever the bondsman fee (if she used a bondsman) is as long as he shows up to court. If he skips she is out the money until he appears. It is referred to in the article as spent but it is really on hold until trial whenever that happens. I don’t consider it a wise move because they set high bail for people they think are flight risks generally.

    People who are in possession of 8,000 bags of heroin are either researchers or trafficking. I’m going to err on the side of caution and say he’s probably not in research. If this woman thinks otherwise, she’s deluding herself. Likewise, my second guess is this money isn’t going to last very much longer for the trash that’s handling it.

  • Etaerio Etaerio

    That’s what America created: Lost women who need a zero to feel like they somebody. He wouldn’t spend a dime of that money to bail her behind out. But, she need her STRONG BLACK BROTHA. She’s keeping hope alive. Who cares if that’s your baby daddy. What about the kids???!!!???

  • Toosmart2bfooled

    I felt so compelled to voice my opinion. I could literally put my foot in her ass for being beyond stupid. When she won all this money, I was part of the folks who prayed that she and her kids, be safe. And have longevity in wealth. Now, after hearing the dumb chit she has allowed, I take it all back. All except the part of the kiddies. I still wish them well going forward. W.T.F was she thinking? and she had the extreme nerve, to bail out that f**king loser. And $9,000.000.00 at that. G.T.F.O.H.W.T.D.S. I would have left his rotten ass in jail. What f**king man is worth that amount of $$$. If we hear that she is broke within the next 5 years. It’ll serve her right. She doesn’t deserve the money. Especially if she is going to do dumb chit with it. Just to think, of all the other people who would donate the amount this dumb itch, bailed her dope dealer busted bum ass boyfriend with. Stupid dumb b**ch!!!

    Yes Veronica dear but when the money is gone then she will go back on welfare spending our money on more lottery tickets. Then what will you have to say?

  • teedoffatobama

    once she’s squander ALL of her money then we;ll see her somewhere on skid row or probably in jail at the taxpayer’s expense.What she oughta do (and it’s her money) is find a skilled brain surgeon and have a transplant done because it’s obvious her’s ain’t working!!!

  • Jack Horgan

    Wow, she’s very good-looking. If she only didn’t have the four anchors hanging off her she could probably land an educated White man with a job.

    Lady…. let him stay in jail. He is wasting your money. Put money into his canteen so he can deal with life in Jail. But beyond that let him do his time and raise your children in the mean while…. somewhere outside of that neighborhood.

  • Magic John

    The faster she spends it, the quicker he’ll be stuck in jail, and kept there, on future charges.

  • Andrew Schliewe

    Sorry but the math don’t add up. She got $88M, she’s 26 yrs old. That means that 88M has to last about 60 years. or roughly $1.5M a year. With just the 2 bonds, she’s spent 9M or 6 years worth of her lottery winnings in about 6 months. At this rate, she’ll be broke in less than 5 years, instead of living very comfortably for the rest of her life.

  • Jeffrey

    just a thugette who will be broke before she knows it.

    “What Y’all need to be worried about is Y’all money and not how I

    Because when you’re broke again and back on the system, you’ll be using our money again.

    And no he’s no drug dealer or
    user but who are Y’all to judge anybody?

    So those 8000 bags of heroin were for personal use? Great so when you OD on all that, you’ll be dead and your kids will be wards of the state (i.e. using OUR money again) because I’m fairly sure there is no will or living trust so whatever you’ve not already blown will be used up on legal fees to determine where your kids go.

    next time your boyfriend goes to jail, leave his there so he can think about the danger he is putting you and your kids in.

    Nope. Sorry. I have never done stupid, idiotic things ‘for love’.

She needs to let him go and focus on her children. She needs to use that money to better herself and build a better future for her children. I hope that she sees it before its too late that this man means her and her children no good.

  • Nasty

    People on welfare or section 8 or food stamps as well as illegals should not be allowed to play the lottery. That money is given to them to support their families, not gamble and illegals work off the books and don’t always pay taxes. We shouldn’t reward people who are breaking the law…smh

  • excelsciors .

    Stupid is what stupid does. Unless this one changes her view on life and priorities. All this woman will do is have her money spent or stolen and once again broke. I certainly will not feel sorry for her if she loses it all. So many people out there unemployed and cannot even pay bills. And this lady is blowing millions on a drug abusing fool.

  • sherphair

    Hey, if the judicial system reaps a nice portion of the $6 mil, all the better. Can be used for the brothers and sisters of the hood who are jailed. Costs big bucks to support the derelicts locked up.

  • GThing

    a fool and her money will soon part ……what the hell did he do to get a 9 million dollar bail? He must have a pretty big stick!

  • Belcher2015

    This disgust me, she should have known he was going to do it again, and she should have known better and spent this money on her kids, not on her drugged up boyfriend. Kids are way more important. You can see who is more important to her, its defintely not her kids.

  • John

    While every guy would love to have a woman that would go this far for them. She is a very dumb woman who needs a different boyfriend who is not a career criminal. Also for the boyfriend who accept the bail out for this much, you are a piece of crap for letting her.

  • Amanda

    Unbelievable, what a difference that money could make in the hands of someone grateful and knows what good to do with it. Sad sad sad.

  • rod rodman

    pathetic commentary on the sub human “race”

  • Caro

    How does someone like this deserve to win the lottery? She is enabling a drug dealer and she’ll keep enabling him because she is clearly a person with no morals or she wouldn’t be associating with him in the first place! Basically her lottery winnings will help some drug dealer kill other people’s children…I hope she loses all her money FAST and I am sorry she won in the first place! Talk about being ungrateful to the universe!

    • TrillLA

      Deserve? its a game that she happened to win. thats it

  • Charles E. Allen

    Well, first off, having all that money does not make you smarter. That is obvious in this case. The lottery officials usually tell the winners to contact a tax lawyer, and a financial adviser to help with handling your winnings. I am sure she has never heard of either. Well, maybe a public defender, but that is about it. Another thing is you can take the people our of the ghetto, but you cannot take the ghetto out of the people. She has that mind set, and that is what will eventually do her in. I just pray that the kids do not suffer much through what is about to happen in their lives now. I am sure they will though, and that is the real tragedy.

    the first thing I would do if I was ghetto rich, stupid and black would be to buy a big pink long stretch Mercedes with wild chariot looking wheels and rims, plush furry interior, and put those up and down shocks in too, probably cost a couple million but money well spent since you could then drive around the ghetto as the ghetto princess and throw dollar bills out the window. now that w/b black smart!

  • Tauriel

    She will marry this thug, and she will die of a drug overdose shortly after..

  • Lele215

    Just a question. Did she post $900000 or the whole $9 million? Just wondering. It’s not my business but that $9 million could have gone to towards hiring the type of attorney or law firm with the connections to get her boo a short sentence and probation. Anyway, it’s her money and who am I to tell her how she should spend her coins.

  • disqus_mcNbCYslzC

    I have a daughter I love more than anything on earth. If the police busted her with 8,000 bags of heroine, she could stay in jail and become a lipstick lesbian for all I care. I don’t uphold anyone in wrongdoing. This woman is a complete idiot, evidenced by the fact that she has 3 children for a man who has spent his time in and out of jail and had no interest in marrying her before she won the lottery.
    This is why when politicians mention wealth redistribution, some people cringe. Some people shouldn’t have a lot of money for a reason, and that includes lottery winners and anyone else who has money and does really stupid things with it.

  • Jamie Cross

    You just can’t take the stupid out of people. It is sad that idiots like this are the ones who win and blow lottery funds. This is a woman who God gave her money to steward and she has proven that she is not a responsible recipient and steward of God’s money. It is a real shame.

    How about paying the government back for all the aid you received?

    • TrillLA

      screw the government

    • Paul

      well I think she paid $$$ back and then some through her one time tax bill. I am not so concerned about her paying back the government as much as paying the society that agreed to have a system in place to help her and her family in their hour of need… and the only way she can pay back society is by raising 4 exemplary citizens (her children).. that is the debt she is obligated to pay!

    • TrillLA

      39 million isnt enough for the government? how selfish are they?

  • nikki94541

    I am sorry she is going to go through this like water. She is not a smart woman and poor blacks that lack morals will never rise and she is right it is her money. If you have no morals and ethics then you cannot achieve moving from the hood and the poor choice in men does not help. WOW….. so sad that a mind is a terrible thing to waste. 8000 bags of heroin if that does not say trouble. He needs to stay in jail….

She’s a moral idiot, and in the old days we would call fer a _hore.

He will be nothing but a bum for all his life, because he knows he has a “sugar-momma” who take care of him forever. You must really be in the dark about raising your children.

    She needs to cut her friends and family loose. Get away. If I won $135 million in the lottery, I’d do two things the next day: 1) set up an estate plan where a good chunk goes to my kids in an irrevocable trust; 2) as soon as that’s done, get the F out of the country where friends and family can’t reach. I’d be gone for at least a year or so, then I’d come back.

  • tom winn

    where did she get the money to buy the lotto ticket? if she was on any welfare programs, whether it was to feed her children or help pay her rent, the entire proceeds should have been seized by the gov’t as theirs. if she could afford to purchase a ticket, she had $2, a least, too much money. those on welfare of any sort should not have an extra penny to waste of any “luxury” item. all welfare recipients should be banned from any game of chance.

  • Vebatim

    I’m glad she did it clearly she has no idea or how to manage the new fortune. Once money is all gone, everything will be just like a dream to her. Nothing is gained nothing is lost. She had nothing before she would have nothing later.

  • charles

    Holmes, of North Carolina, decided that she was going to accept her $188 million winnings in one lump sum, meaning she was awarded $127 million. After taxes, she received $88 million, 9 million went to bail for her fiance she still has 80 million what’s the problem. I think the problem is she won 188,000,000, why did they take 100,000,000 of her money in taxes?

    whether she blows it or saves it and spends it wisely, it has no effect on me either way. it’s her money, and she can do what she wants. is it a shame that she can’t find more creative outlets for this cash? of course. set up a non profit….take care of animals…scholarship programs..a food bank….those would all be nice. but if she wants to bail everyone in jail out and then lend them all a million dollars each that’s her choice. so lay off her

    If he was caught with all that heroin, he will be in jail for life anyway once he finally goes to court. At least this dummy is finally giving BACK to the system by using her millions for that. So thank you. It’s about time, you gave back, you dumb, stupid ho. AND by the way, people who don’t do heroin, don’t just have it around or in their house. I know I don’t do drugs, and I don’t just have them in my house, I wouldn’t even know where to obtain them. Someone in that household does it.

    Some things to ponder.
    #1 You’ll never see her give anything to charity. Groids never give to charity.
    #2 When she squanders all that money in a couple of years, will she expect welfare, EBT, and HUD again?
    #3 That 70 IQ average for blacks – hers is barely 56. Just enough to keep her inner organs from failing.

    No I would not spend 6-9 million bailing out loved ones who sell hard drugs like heroin. Because I would never be in that situation. And if I did have a loved one that was doing that, I’d let them sit in jail if they had a reasonable sentence. (Because that will probably be best for them, make them realize that they wont get away with everything) The reason why it’s so easy to criticize this lady for how she spends her money is because she fooled everyone at the start making it seem like she was a good person and that this money wouldn’t be blown away on stupid shit. That and the fact that she did nothing to earn this money. That pisses a lot of people off, and rightly so. I’m sure few people are ok with trust fund babies blowing all their money that was given to them, so it’s the same when it comes to lotto winners.

  • Steve Jones

    She didn’t spend 9 million dollars. She put up 9 million dollars which she will get back as long as the guy goes to court. Still really dumb to do.

  • shehawk3

    Let’s see how many times she can say Ya’ll.
