A divorced husband received the entire $1.3 million his wife had won in a lottery because she didn’t disclose it during the divorce case.

Denise Rossi won $1.3 million in the California Lottery and kept it a secret from her husband, Thomas. She soon filed for a divorce and ended the 25 year old marriage.

After two years, Thomas came to know of the lottery win by fluke when he received a junk mail letter. He took his ex-wife to court where the judge awarded the entire amount to him because Denise had violated state asset disclosure laws and had acted out of fraud or malice.
