LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Mirlande Wilson lied about her Mega Millions winning ticket. Mirlande Wilson did not have a Mega Millions winning ticket for March 30, 2012 originating from Maryland, officials confirmed to news moments ago. The sole winning ticket from Maryland was announced to news today; and the holders of the tickets are three Maryland public school educators, not Mirlande Wilson.
Mirlande Wilson in an “exclusive” interview with the New York Post published April 2, 2012 claimed she was the winner. It turns out, it was all a Mega Millions mess lie. Wilson said “I was in the group, but this was separate. The winning ticket was a separate ticket,” said Wilson. Wilson also told news “We had a group plan, but I went and played by myself. [The ‘winning’ ticket] wasn’t on the group plan”.
Since that story broke, Wilson has already been sued in a Baltimore court by Mandisa Mazibuko. Mandisa Mazibuko wanted some of Wilson’s winnings, which Maryland officials now confirm don’t exist.
Wilson called her office, the Post claimed, after the winning numbers were announced. “I won! I won!” exclaimed Wilson. “She said, ‘Turn on the news.’ She said she had won. I thought it was a joke or something. She doesn’t seem like a person who’d do this”.
She did. The real Maryland winners are a woman in her 20s, a man in his 40s, and a woman in her 50s. They bought sixty tickets as a team at three locations. Each will get $35 million wired into their bank accounts in the next ten days.
