Why do I feel this is every persons dream who has gone through a breakup?

An unemployed Brit says his ex-girlfriend must be “gutted” that he’s snagged up more than $13 million in lottery winnings — just over a month after the two broke up, according to a report.

Paul Long, 55, of Wickford, Essex, split on good terms with his partner of five years, Julie West, 52, when he moved out of their shared home on Feb. 1, The Mirror reported.

Then on Saturday, Long won about £9.3 million — just over $13 million — off a “Lucky Dip” ticket, according to the report.

“Let’s be honest, if I was with someone and you’ve just split up, and they go and win £9 million on the lottery, you’re going to be gutted, aren’t you?” Long told The Mirror.

Long did state that his ex won’t be completely shut out from some of the winnings.

What a guy!
