$590 Million Lottery Winner Will Share Massive Winnings Exclusively With Gay Son

article-2340570-1A491D0A000005DC-823_634x605What’s an 84-year-old woman to do when she suddenly stumbles into a multi-million dollar fortune? Share it with the gays, of course! There’s no one on Earth that could spend a couple hundred million as properly as the gays—just ask Ellen.

That’s right, y’all. Gloria Mackenzie, the elderly Florida woman that just scored a cool $590 million in the largest single lottery Powerball in history (by cutting in line!) has vowed to share her massive fortune with her 57-year-old gay son Scott and his 65-year-old boyfriend, Jerry Cruz. What a gem!

The Daily Mail reports that although Gloria has already cashed in her winnings, the threesome hasn’t been seen spending as much dough as the average overnight millionaire would. In fact, they’ve recently been seen shopping at—gasp—Wal-Mart and living large on $22 “steam pots” at Joe’s Crab Shack in Jacksonville, FL.

Gloria has several other children, but it’s unknown whether or not she’ll share any of the winnings with them. For what it’s worth, they’re probably not as awesome as her gay son is.

Both Scott and Gloria have “gone into hiding” since becoming wealthier than Beyonce and Jay-Z, but there’s one person that totally knows where they’re shacking up: Scott’s ex-wife, Ella. “I have spoken to him [Scott] a few times,” she told the Daily Mail. “I don’t know if he is giving me any money but it doesn’t really matter – if he does he does, if he doesn’t he doesn’t.’

Check out more photos of the threesome dropping mad dough at Joe’s Crab Shack and the Crazy Egg Cafe in Florida. They say money can’t buy you class, but we sure hope it can buy them a freakin’ smile one of these days!

    Hmmm….”I don’t know if he is giving me any money but it doesn’t really matter…”

    So there’s a presumption on the ex-wife’s part that the winners will be giving out money. It’s people like this, and the the winners’ inability to say NO, that causes many of these winners to end up broke a few years after winning. I wish nothing but the best for the winner and her gay son but if past experience of the majority of lottery winners is anything to go by, the odds of their holding on to all that money are against them.

    I wish them well.

    They look upset at having been photographed. Their lives have changed. What a weird pack of peeps upon which this money landed. It will change their relationship with everyone they know. What an odd experience for them.

    Money is the great equalizer. And this 57-yr-old, who most gays wouldn’t give a second glance to, and who would never be considered hot, will all of a sudden have plenty of nicelooking,young hardbody studs coming his way. With this type of money this guys desirability has just increased ten-fold…

    Why would someone want to broadcast they won a half-billion dollars? Stupid

  • mcflyer54

    @BlogShag: depends on local (state) lottery laws. In some states you can remain anonymous while in others (such as Ohio) you cannot (although it’s sometime legal to set up a trust or something similar to provide some identity protection). Besides, once someone knows your secret is out anyway.

    @Charli Girl: LOA…
