As the cool kids say, “It could have been you but you fumbled the bag”, loosely translated as you could have been living the life but you messed up.
An unlucky rugby player, Daniel White, missed out on the opportunity of potentially being a stay-at-home boyfriend by dumping his girlfriend a month before she won a £61 Million (R12,9 Billion) EuroMillions payout.
What started off as a high school romance, fizzled out when the couple had a fall out
Daniel states that, "We had different interests and different friends.”
Not holding onto the relationship proved costly when Daniel's ex, Courtney, bought a lottery ticket worth a £61 Million (R12,9 Billion).
Courtney shared her winnings with her family. She gave her sister Stephanie and her boyfriend £12 Million (R254 Billion). To add a spanner to the works, Daniel lived next door to Courtney’s sister. Talk about bad timing and bad luck.
