Maine $1.35B Mega Millions winner called dad ‘dictator’ and ‘a–hole’— then cut him off: court docs

The Maine $1.35bn Mega Millions winner called his dad a ‘dictator’ and an ‘a–hole’ in an explosive argument before cutting off all contact with him, according to bombshell court filing.

The unidentified man, who won the fourth-largest jackpot in US history in January last year, also went back on his promise to buy his dad a garage and cars to fix up, according to an affidavit.

The lottery winner’s family fight was exposed in court papers between the winner and his daughter’s mom, whom he is suing for allegely violating a non-disclosure agreement by telling the rest of his family details about the big win.

The lottery winner also allegedly demanded his father not speak to his granddaughter’s mother — identified by a pseudonym, Sara Smith, ever again, according to the papers.

“I told him … ‘You are not the son I knew,’” his dad wrote in the filing.

“He got angry, calling me a ‘dictator’ and an ‘a–hole.’ I have not heard from my son since, and he has not done any of [the] things he promised.”

In his own filing, the Mega Millions winner had a different version of events.

“I made the mistake of telling my father that I had won the lottery without having him sign a confidentiality agreement,” the winner wrote.

“Our relationship deteriorated quickly thereafter,” he continued.

“I did not tell him what I was doing with my money, how I was going to benefit my daughter, or any facts other than the simple fact that I had won.”

The baby momma, ‘Sara Smith’, also provided an affidavit where she accused her ex of being paranoid and taking a GPS tracker off his daughter because he was worried she was spying on him through it, according to court documents obtained by The Post.

She wrote: “I understand that the Plaintiff now claims he turned off and mailed back the GPS
watch because I had been using the watch to eavesdrop on his conversations. That conspiracy theory is entirely unfounded … I do not know today if that is even technically possible.”

She also said in the affidavit she found the way the billionaire winner served her papers in the lawsuit “downright creepy” after she was approached while at work as a nurse.

“Plaintiff’s counsel had her summoned from the emergency room where she was nursing a patient to serve her with the complaint; then Plaintiff’s counsel sent a text message to her personal cell phone telling her that she was parked illegally at the hospital.

“Plaintiff’s counsel sent her another text message later telling her that he could see she now was home and that she needed a lawyer to defend her in this case, all of which she found terrifying, invasive, intimidating, and downright creepy,” she wrote in the affidavit.

Lawyers representing the lottery winner didn’t immediately respond to The Post when reached for comment.

‘Sara Smith’ claimed the winner, identified in the papers as ‘John Doe’, was the one who spilled the beans about the historic win to his family.

The lottery winner’s father also testified similar, according to the papers.

“I understand that my son has stated he told me nothing about his money ‘other than the simple fact that I had won,’” the dad wrote.

“That is not true,” the father said, adding he did not ask his son for money.

In his own filings, the jackpot winner claimed he put the NDA in place due to the “unique safety, security, and privacy concerns associated with winning the lottery” and that if his identity is discovered it will cause them both “irreparable harm”.
