Woman Breaks Up With Her Boyfriend After Winning Set For Life $11K A Month Lottery Ticket

A lottery winner who scooped £10,000 a month for the next 30 years has been dumped by his partner and claims she has cut him off from the jackpot because the winning ticket was bought in her name.

Laura Hoyle, 40, and Kirk Stevens, 39, from Nottingham, won the jackpot in the National Lottery’s Set For Life draw – a total of £3.6million split over 30 years.

Mr Stevens had been letting Miss Hoyle live with him in his £240,000 three-bedroom house for free as he ‘didn’t expect her to pay rent’ – with the agreement that she would be the one to pay £25 a week for lottery tickets.

The deal paid off for the couple, but Mr Stevens claimed Miss Hoyle has now broken up with him, snubbed him from the winnings and ‘even wants our two dogs’. The couple had said they planned to set up a ghost hunting business and were photographed holding their cheque – written out to both of them.

Mr Stevens argued he should be given a share of the winnings after the split, but although the novelty cheque handed to the couple had both of their names on it, the ticket was bought with Miss Hoyle’s account Camelot has said that all Lotto wins are paid to an individual, even in a syndicate, and told the Sun that the winning account was hers.

However a year and a half later Miss Hoyle dumped Mr Stevens, got a new house, and he says she took the jackpot, The Sun reported.

Mr Stevens, an engineer, said his ex had told him the pair would ‘live the life of Riley’ if they won but ‘now she’s gone’.
