The Tennessee family who won one third of Powerball’s $1.5 billion jackpot is being sued and the plaintiff is a former prisoner notorious for filing hundreds of lawsuits against famous celebrities. Jonathan Lee Riches aka “Jihadi Schitz” filed the lawsuit on January 25, claiming that he and the Robinson family exchanged letters while he was in prison. He then said that he gave $20 from his prison trust fund account and told Tiffany Robinson that she should use it for Powerball tickets.
The former prisoner states in the lawsuit that if the Robinsons does win the Powerball, he and Tiffany would ‘murry’ and live on a remote island full of milk and honey with her.
The good news is the Robinsons or any other future Powerball big winners should not worry. Riches’ history with frivolous lawsuits also has an equally long history of having his lawsuits thrown out of court.
Meanwhile, the Powerball jackpot surges to $157 million, with a cash option on $101.7 million, for Wednesday, February 10. The next Mega Millions draw will be on Tuesday, February 9, with an $80 million jackpot and a cash option of $51 million.
