GAMESHOW WINNER SPLURGES £50,000 FAST TO AVOID SHARING.

Post  Welldone on Mon Sep 03, 2012 12:50 pm

A British gameshow contestant who won £50,000 on Deal Or No Deal spent his entire windfall in less than four months to avoid sharing it with his estranged wife.

According to Britain’s Daily Mail, 33-year-old Scott Brown decided to spend the money fast after realizing the show would be screened on national television just four months after he won.

Brown, a sign manufacturer and fitter, said he used £15,000 to clear all the debts he and his wife Rachel, 29, had from, loans credit card bills and bank overdrafts.

Having set aside almost £2,000 to pay for legal fees for his divorce, he then bought clothing, household items and toys for their two young children.

Mr Brown also used some cash to ‘live off’, having being signed off from work due to ‘depression’.
But he admits he spent most of the rest enjoying life and his splurge included an iPad, a holiday in Mexico and the outlay of £4,000 on a second-hand X-type Jaguar estate car.

The final part of his winnings went days before his own August 21 deadline to pay for an electrician’s course, so he could start a new career.

As it transpired, Mr Brown was right to suspect that his wife, who he says asked him for a divorce on Christmas Day last year when he allegedly found she had been having an affair with a truck driver she met over the internet, would want to cash in on his lucky break.

As soon as the Channel 4 programme was broadcast, she went to court in a belated bid to ensure she received a share.

The case went before a district judge at Doncaster County Court last Thursday, when Mr Brown was ordered to detail in writing how the money was spent; an injunction imposed days earlier ordering him not to spend his winnings – if any remained – was kept in place; and the case was adjourned.

The couple, who are in the process of getting divorced, neither looked at or spoke to each other throughout the brief hearing.

Can't argue with that Pumpy...statistically the male is the last to know and the women plan six months in advance. I think he did a damned good job!

Why would he have to give her any money anyway,,she left him, she asked for a divorce and all she is in my eyes is a slut who wants money,,what did she do to deserve some of his winnings?.. do you get rewarded these days for shagging someone else when you are married,,all she needs is a good bitch slap ,,i cant stand sluts like her..

True if they are not yet divorced already but it doesn't really specify that. Just that he set aside money to pay the legal fees

That seems pretty specific to me...it tells us they are still married. British Divorce laws are similar to our own...she would be entitled to equal share of all property etc accumulated during the marriage or a percentage thereof which she tried to safeguard with the injunction.....just a gold digger.

It may seem specific to you but if you think about it there are many variables to consider

1. Who filed for divorce
2. Date of filing (The divorce could be almost done and dusted)
3. On what grounds (If it was for her adultery that would be taken into account)
4. He had already paid almost 1/3 of his winnings towards debts that they BOTH incurred (Self explanatory and would certainly be taken into account)

It's not cut and dried and I doubt she would have been awarded half of his winnings, if any
at all

She asked for the divorce at Christmas and she put the injunction in place re winnings. Seems you just want to be right as usual...so you be right Rumi.

I don't need to be right Inbound. There is no right or wrong in giving an opinion, except to you

I was merely pointing out that we don't know what the outcome would have been. The article said it was a "belated bid" on her part looking for a share and, taking variables into account, it could have gone either way

I am glad he spent it all though and that's all that counts

I can't see why anyone would post an opinion, believing they are wrong in what they post-that's absurd!

So Peace...do we take it you have never apologised...which is what your post appears to be saying. In which case your statement is false because you have apologised to me on Yahoo before now.

Here is the post I was referring to. Peace states why would anyone post an opinion believing they are wrong. An apology fits that criteria...making Peace absurd.

Honky is absurd for making statements that are completely untrue...something we have become used to.
