Woman Dumped by Boyfriend After He Won $338 Million Drops Lawsuit

By  |  16 Comments

A New Jersey woman is dropping her lawsuit against an ex-boyfriend of 10 years who won $338 million inlottery_winner_powerball the Powerball lottery then dumped her.

Inez Sanchez, ex-girlfriend of lottery winner Pedro Quezada, officially dropped her lawsuit in state Superior Court on Friday.

Even though the two were never married, they had a child together, lived together for over a decade, and owned a grocery store together.

When Quezada claimed his lottery winnings, Sanchez was by his side, but it didn’t take long for him to have a change of heart.

As it turns out Quezada’s ex girlfriend isn’t the only person complaining about how he’s changed since winning the Powerball. Quezada’s landlord says he hasn’t paid $725 in rent he owes and neighbors of the mega lottery winner say he promised to pay their rent but never made good on that promise.

“It doesn’t get any lower than that,” landlord Kujtim Sulejmani, 47, told MailOnline when discussing the $725 in rent that Quezada allegedly skipped out on.

“He won the lotto and then he moved out. He didn’t even pay his own – forget the rest of them.”

Quezada took the lump sum option of $152 million and according to Sanchez, $57 million of that is already gone because Quezada sent that back home to the Dominican Republic.

“I would just want him to give the money to his common-law wife and kids,’ said Sulejmani. ‘The $800 doesn’t matter to me. I hope he gives it to his wife because she really deserves it.”

“He got lucky and it would have been a good act to pay the rent,” Serafim Ariza, 19, told MailOnline. “He promised the whole street but he never followed through.”

    That’s just sad . Pitiful . Money is nothing without love. He’ll regret it all at the end it’ll be hard for him to sleep at night . Really girlfriend of 10 years ? Mother of your child ? He’s an idiot all the money in the irks couldn’t make up for that. Real love bless her heart and bless his soul smh don’t let materialism ruin your life. Money can destroy the right person if it wanted to.

      Are we reading the same story? How have you come to so many conclusions about his character from the sketchy details, along with the account of one person. Further, she dropped the lawsuit… aren’t you even curios as to why? As for the child’s mother, she will be taken care of if the child is taken care of. As for your “love” comments, booooo, Mahogany was JUST a movie…lol…without LOVE? In a society with a 50% divorce rate? Where is this love you speak about? Further, when there is very little back story provided (as is the case with this story), what is your basis for your insults and name-calling of this man? Btw, I’m a single (dating) 40yo woman w/ an AMAZING life and still have yet to feel like I’m missing out on anything because I’ve never desired marriage…there’s so much more to life than laying up, shacking up, and calling it a day.

    Lets just sit back and watch….when you are shady you will have nothing but loss!This dude will end up just like all of these other lottery losers who end up loosing everything just because they kicked the people to the curb who were there for him…He may think the grass is greener on the other side but I can already see…in his future he will be left holding nothing but weeds…

    My mother is a Family Law Attorney and she says all the time that being a girlfriend gives a woman no rights, she is in Chicago and sees this happen all the time. She should have made him marry her. New Jersey outlawed common law marriage in the 50’s. Take care of his kid, and believe me folks in the Dominican can use his charity, fo sure! ! Hotep

    The dude just made an upgrade in his choice of partners. I’m sure when his taxes come in he’s gonna pay the past due rent. He can hold out until the kid turns 18 ha, ha, ha, let that be a lesson ladies. If he wanted he would have put a ring on it.

    Well he is doing some good maybe but he’s not doing all the right things and there will be a cost. I always wonder if that kind of money would bring me more problems or solve anything. Think about that. I”ve not seen a lot of winners happy

    I am not hating but last I chaecked; being a girlfried does not qulify a boyfriend to what ever you owned nor a girlfriend to have what ever he ownes! Now if you two were married; that would be a different story. Flip the script and tell me how you would field? Its not an engagement and could have changed at any time!

    The Bible says that ill gotten money, and I’m paraphrasing here, will soon disappear. Whether we want to acknowledge the fact or not – playing the lottery is gambling. And a lot of the money that goes in to fund those large jackpots isn’t just frivolous spending change. Some people forego paying rent, mortgages, child support…all the important things, for a miniscule chance at winning something that’s less likely than getting struck by a random bolt of lightening. And some of the ones that do win, soon find out that money doesn’t buy happiness. In fact, the problems increase, especially if you don’t have the proper perspective on how to invest or spend it. This man skipped out on paying back rent in the amount of 800 dollars? Makes me kind of wonder how he’ll handle 94 million.

      I really would like to know how the lottery is “ill gotten money” if people play the lottery by choice? Just like in life, there are many lottery winners that you will never hear about because they have gone on and invested the money and/or used it to help their families. They didn’t just blow through it. The ones we hear about are the ones who lose millions in a year or two from partying and bad investments, etc. Again, this woman dropped the lawsuit for a reason. While people are passing judgment on surface reporting, it would do everyone well, to think a little more deeply about the subject.

    A promise is NOT a contract & he can change his mind. If those people didn’t pay their rent hopping he would & spent the money. That’s on them. So what if he was with his girl for 10 yrs. Their not married so he doesn’t have to give her a dime. That’s what happens when you play house & not get married! The real question is why she stayed with the man for 10 yrs without being married? Second if they were living together I’m sure he wasn’t paying child support because he was there taking care of his child. Now since he’s not with her we don’t know if he took his kid with him. If he did he still wouldn’t have to pay support.

    There are no benefits in living with a man/woman even if they don’t win the lottery. It is taking away your value. Why give anyone the privileges and perks of marriage without the license? At least if they leave you after your juiciness is gone you can get some financial benefits to get yourself back in the game.
