$9 Million of $188 Million in Lottery Winnings Spent to Bail Out Fiancé –
Marie Holmes is currently the subject of criticism for bailing her fiancé, Lamarr McDow, an accused drug dealer allegedly caught with 8,000 bags of heroin, out of jail not once—but TWICE.
Holmes, 26, walked away with nearly $88 million after taking the lump sum and paying taxes on her mid-February Powerball win. She and several other people were charged with drug possession after a search of the home after deputies smelled marijuana when they came to get McDow. Investigators also charged him for possession of a firearm by a felon after finding a gun in the house during their search.
Here’s what Marie Holmes had to say to her critics:
“What Y’all need to be worried about is Y’all money and not how I spend mine this is benefitting Y’all how? And no he’s no drug dealer or user but who are Y’all to judge anybody? I will definitely pray for Y’all because it’s much need…they talked about Jesus so I’m not surprised Y’all are talking about me but be blessed though,”
