Pastor Matthews had claimed that he already made legal binding contributions with the $10 million that Marie had promised him. He considered the deal he made with Marie to be a legally binding verbal contract. He's also suing for "the emotional distress and mental stress they put me through, I had to start taking more medicine for anxiety and depression due to this situation… I didn’t see this coming and I think it was a third party that came along and told her not to do this.”

The pastor went on, "The bottom line… I just want her to do what she said she was going to do. I want peace and to do what God told me to do. I want her to do what she said she was going to do. I really feel like a warrior for Christ and people need to be accountable." Due to the actions of this “Warrior for Christ” a lot of his churchgoers questioned his motives. He quickly went from a trusted pastor to a slimy snake.

Marie attempted to move on after the incredible drama that winning the jackpot caused her. She bought a brand new home and even appeared on an episode of “Iyanla: Fix My Life." The host ended up telling Marie to sell her newly purchased home because it was a former slave plantation in the Civil War. She claimed the house stored a lot of negative energy. An interview on the show ends up leading to a bit more confusion to all of the lottery drama.

While interviewing on the television show, Marie and her mother explained that the numbers they picked actually weren’t random at all. They had said that Marie had given her mother the money for the ticket, but her mother was the one who picked the numbers. Even though in all of the photos of Marie holding the ticket, there are “QP’s” printed on the ticket, which mean the numbers are quick picks. If they weren’t random, that area would have been blank. Regardless, you won’t believe what she did with the money.

Marie ended up investing some of the money into her own foundation, a smart move on her part. But some of her other decisions weren’t so bright. Marie was still involved with the father of her youngest daughter, Lamar “Hot Sauce” McDow. He is a convicted drug trafficker who spent a lot of time in jail. Marie ended up bailing him out quite a bit. In fact, she spent $21 million bailing him out. She also got the felon a new car and a Rolex that cost $15,000. She even ended up facing her own drug charges. Did Marie’s life have a fairytale ending, or did the lottery just ruin her life altogether?
