Family troubles exist all around the world and for many different reasons but none so much when vast sums of money suddenly enter the equation. The mother of a recent Euromillions winner has decided that now is the time to heal their 7 year rift.
One could be forgiven for being cynical at the timing of Julie Gamble’s plea to her son to heal a feud that has gone on for the last 7 years. The 49 year old mom has sworn that financial incentives play no part in her sudden desire to resurrect her relationship with her son.
“I have no interest in any of his millions,” says Mrs Gamble, “I don't want his money, I would just love to get my son back.”
“I would tell him to remember a few things: I am your mum, I will always love you, I may not like you but I will always love you. And I am here if you ever need me.”
Her son, Matt Topham, made news recently when he and his fiancé Cassey Carrington took home over £45,160,170.50 on the Euromillions lottery. Since his parents divorced 7 years ago Matt has barely seen his mother, the last time being on Christmas 2004. Matt has rejected his mother’s plea for reconciliation; accusing her of mistreating other members of his family and claiming she had forced him out of her life.
So, if Matt isn’t throwing any of his winnings Mom’s way what has he been up to? Since the fantastic win Matt has done the following with his money:
* Paid off his father and step-brothers mortgages
* Vowed to give £1.3 million to his best friend
* Gifted a £28,000 Audi Quattro to his step-brother
* Purchased a £109,000.00 Jaguar XKR-S for himself
* His fiancé Cassey purchased an £80,000 Range Rover
* Purchased a new three-bedroom house in Nottingham
Who knows if Matt’s mom is sincere when she states that her desire for reconciliation does not involve his sudden enormous windfall? The cynics may say that it is really the lost money, not her lost son, that she is upset about. PlayHugeLottos.com hopes the two of them find peace in their life.
