She Lost Her Home Due to Her Stepdaughter’s Lies, but When She Refused to Give Her Money After a Lotto Win, She Was Branded Selfish

A woman recently asked for some advice after her family accused her of being selfish for not giving her stepdaughter some much-needed cash. Here’s what happened.

They hadn’t seen her in years

A woman hadn’t seen her stepdaughter—her partner’s biological daughter—for over nine years, ever since the girl was 11 years old.

She made up some nasty stories

The couple used to take care of her every other weekend, but there was an issue with her biological mother. The woman said, “When she was 11, she made up stuff about me and my partner. We knew her mom was behind it.”

The horrible stories meant that the couple no longer saw the stepdaughter, but that wasn’t the worst of it.

The accusations were so serious that the woman and her partner had to go to fight them, which ended up costing hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The case cost the woman her house. She said, “Selling my house meant I wasn’t able to care for my ailing father, and had we not proved the accusations false, it could have resulted in us losing our children.”

The stepdaughter and her father went to therapy, where the girl admitted lying. She’d believed that her dad was trying to stop her from seeing her mother.

He told her to get in touch

The girl’s father was shocked. He told his daughter to get in touch when she was ready to have a proper relationship again.

They were devastated

Despite everything, the couple were devastated. The woman said, “We sent her birthday and Christmas presents, but they moved and changed their numbers.”

She won the lottery

Recently, the woman had a lottery win that gave her enough to make a down payment on a new house, pay off some debts, and set up college funds for their kids.

She got a text

A week after her win—and after nine years of silence—the woman got a very friendly text from her stepdaughter.

Then came the accusations

The texts started politely enough, but the girl was soon asking why no one had given her any money from the lottery win yet. She said she wanted enough for a down payment on a house of her own.

She said no

The woman said no immediately. They hadn’t really won enough to be able to afford that.

She’d already lost one house

The woman said, “I’ve already wasted a whole house on her and almost lost my kids and life. I don’t want to give her a cent, and I want nothing to do with her.”

His family got mad

Although the woman’s partner initially agreed with her decision, he quickly changed his mind after his mom and sister got involved and demanded he give his daughter some money.

Was she wrong?

Was the woman wrong to deny her stepdaughter any money? Should the girl expect any after what she did?

The internet responded

One person said, “I would send the stepdaughter an itemized list of all the money and property you lost because of her lies and say that you will not be giving her a cent now or in the future.”

Another said, “Ask your husband if he thinks she would have contacted him if you hadn’t won. She doesn’t want a relationship. She wants a payout.”
