How New Jersey Lottery Winner Almost Lost His Winning Ticket
Mike Weirsky couldn't believe his luck when he saw he had hit it big. "It still hasn't hit me," he told Inside Edition. The Alpha, New Jersey, man won last Friday's $273 million Mega Millions lottery jackpot, but he now finds himself in a bit of a pickle. Weirsky got divorced about five months ago. During the course of his 15-year marriage, Weirsky never once worked while his ex-wife, Eileen Murray, supported him. Even now, she's paying him court-ordered alimony.
