Dan White broke up with his (now) ex-girlfriend Courtney, and then her family won £61 million in the lottery!
As if missing out wasn’t bad enough, Dan lives next door to his ex’s sister, Stephanie, who is now rolling in her £12 million of the prize with her boyfriend. Stephanie’s boyfriend was also given £12 million to himself!
Dan (21) broke up with school sweetheart Courtney (19) last year. Apparently, the rugby playing lad was stunned when he learned that his ex’s mum had won £61 million on a ticket she bought to celebrate beating cancer.
Dan will be biting his fist, having to live next door to Stephanie and Steve who are living in luxury with their sum total of £24 million. If only he hadn’t been so hasty to break up with his girlfriend!
In an interview, Dan said:
“All my mates are savaging me about this – the first I knew of their win was my phone going nuts.
The boys were all sending me links and jokey snapchats asking if I was gutted.
One said: “How much have you cried since you found out mate?”
Courtney’s sister and Dan live next door to each other in Monmouth, South Wales. Apparently being neighbours with his ex-girlfriend’s sister has been “awkward” since the break-up.
“To find out they’ve now won the lottery I’m happy for them – but obviously feel like it could have been me.
I just put my head in my hands.”
The couple were together for 2 years before they split after Courtney moved to Southampton for University.
“It was a tough time for her when we got together. Her dad Malcolm had just died. The family were devastated but Sonia did a great job of keeping them all together.”
“She could give me a million a year for the two years I went out with her – I wouldn’t say no to that.”
Like she should have to pay him for his time? Jeez…
