As a divorce lawyer I am used to people arguing over money. For many it is a necessary argument to ensure they can house themselves or put food on the table. The more money there is the necessity for those arguments subside and it becomes about greed or expectation. It is very sad that the dream lotto win has left someone miserable and just proves the old adage "money can't buy you happiness".
Euromillions winner Gillian Bayford says landing the £148m jackpot made her life a misery and triggered a irreconcilable rift with her family.The 43-year-old - who split from her husband Adrian fifteen months after scooping the prize - said she has not spoken to her 'greedy' family for nearly one year, despite giving them £20m after the windfall.She claims her mother, father and brother - who all live in plush houses and drive flash cars thanks to her fortune - 'disowned' her last May, but still expect her to bail them out when they need money.She also accused them of becoming 'downright nasty' by constantly 'flashing the cash' which she gave them after the win.
