In a heart warming feel-good story Holly Lahti made headlines a week ago as a single mother who won $190 million on Mega Millions.
But now it seems the abusive husband she separated from years ago wants a piece of her good fortune. Holly, 29, disappeared from public view with her two daughters after discovering she had won half of a $380 millionMega Millions jackpot on 4th January.
As it turns out, the husband could be entitled to a chunk of the winnings because he and Lahti never divorced and were never legally separated for that matter.
In 2003, Josh Lahti was arrested for violating a no-contact order, and that charge was dismissed. He was also charged with second-degree kidnapping, possession of drug paraphernalia, domestic abuse, battery and false imprisonment. All but the kidnapping were dismissed. He was sentenced to 180 days in jail and three years probation.
