When Marie Holmes, a 27-year-old North Carolina mother of four, won the $188 million Powerball jackpot last year in February – the largest jackpot in N.C. historywe’re sure she didn’t think most of her winnings would be spent, rather exhausted, on coming to the rescue of her boyfriend.

On Friday (Jan.1), Holmes began her new year on a sour note, posting a $12 million bond for her boyfriend Lamar “Hot Sauce “McDow, 31, according to the New York Daily News. However, this is the fourth time Holmes has posted a pricey bail for her man. It’s almost become routine at this point for her, as she put up $3 million for his release in March 2015, $6 million in August, and $10,000 in October, for charges ranging from drugs to possession of a firearm by a felon. Now, if that’s love we don’t know what is. Nevertheless, it’s surely an unhealthy love. – Jackson, MS

This time around, a warrant was issued on Dec. 26 for “Hot Sauce’s” arrest, as he had violated the terms of his pre-trial release on previous charges, which included wearing an ankle monitor and being allowed only in certain places,  WECT-TV reported. He was also accused of arranging a street race and slapped with a misdemeanor charge of conspiracy.

McDow was booked into the Brunswick County Jail on Tuesday after being arrested. Officials of the sheriff’s office told WECT-TV that the arrest occurred due to their GPS monitoring system showed that he was in a location he was not allowed in and they had several unsuccessful calls to get in touch with both Holmes and McDow.
