Lottery Winner Callie Rogers Broke, Spent $400,000 On Cocaine
Callie Rogers, a 22-year-old who won a $3 million jackpot six years ago, is now completely broke. In addition, Rogers spent a whopping $400,000 on cocaine alone. Rogers says winning the jackpot when she was a teenager ruined her life. She says she should not have been allowed to have control over her money at 16.
"I was spending a fortune on cocaine, a nasty evil drug that tears your life apart," Rogers was quoted as saying. "I'll be honest. about a quarter of a million pounds of my win has been wasted on it."
"My life is a shambles and hopefully now it [the lottery jackpot] has all gone I can find some happiness. It's brought me nothing but unhappiness. It's ruined my life," another article in the Daily Mail quoted a friend of Rogers as saying.
But, no matter how hard one tries, it is still kind of hard to blow $3 million in six years with no property or valuables left.
So, here is how Rogers spent her fortune:
It was spent on expensive cars, gifts, loans to family members, four houses she bought and furnished for herself and family members, luxury vacations, plastic surgery, clothing and partying, and a trust fund for her children.
Rogers is currently working three jobs to make ends meet. She also has two chidlren to take care of.
Miss Rogers said she had £20,000 in a bank account and 'that's about it.'
