NJ Mega Millions winner's ex doesn't want him back

273 Million Dollar Mega Millions Winner Michael Weirsky Forgot Winning Ticket at New Jersey Convenience Store

Perhaps even more unbelievable, however, is Weirsky then walked out of the store - forgetting the winning ticket on the counter.

"He's not appealing to me all of a sudden because he has this money", she told the New York Post.

He added that he wants to find the stranger who turned his winning ticket in after he left a Quick Chek in Phillipsburg, rather than taking it, and reward them for their honesty.

The ex-wife, Eileen Murray, has said she has no plans to reunite with him despite his new-found wealth. He remembers sitting and watching TV for half an hour after that, just stunned at what had happened. "You tell me what's the moral thing to do". He's spent $20 per week on tickets, on and off, for years.

"After that I'm basically locked in to what my lawyer and other people I have working for me tell me I can do", he said.

A mystery person found the ticket, and returned it to the store employees. I had to give him a lot of money in the divorce.

"It's going to change everything because I was unemployed", he said.

"I was very thankful there was an honest person out there because I thought it was gone", he said. "I was doing the right thing, and I'd do it again". Had the Good Samaritan wanted, they could have signed the back of the ticket and claimed the jackpot. How long did I work?

Weirsky says he was a "bum" before and after high school, so maybe he'll be a "beach bum" now.

She said she won't be trying to get a portion of the lottery winnings.

Weirsky is taking the lump sum of $162.5 million and said he has bought a new truck and plans to buy a auto for his mother but has not made any other big decisions on how he will spend his fortune. He also wants to take his family on a vacation.

Following a recent divorce, 54-year-old Mike Weirsky has been struggling to find a job, but to no avail.
