Six years ago, a sixteen year old British girl won 3 million in the UK lottery. Did she save enough for a rainy day or throw it all in the bag? Pop the hood to find out how she’s making out six years later.
Callie Rogers, who is now 22, says winning the lottery brought her nothing but pain, heartache, and two attempted suicides:
My life is in shambles and hopefully now it has all gone and I can find some happiness. It’s brought me nothing but unhappiness. It’s ruined my life. I’ve just wanted to make people happy by spending money on them. But it hasn’t made me happy. It just made me anxious that people are only after me for my money. Until you win such a large amount of money at such a young age, you don’t realize the pressures that come with it. I did it because winning the lottery has ruined my life.”
Now that all the money is gone, Callie says she hopes to rebuild her life and let go of her dark past! Damn, if only we could have won that much money at 16; we’d have more businesses than “Blood Diamond” Russ and Diddy put together in their heyday!
