TFA: "She told me God wanted her to buy me a truck," Palmer insisted. "She said I needed to stop paying rent and buy a trailer. She said she wanted to bless me."

Wait... what?

If it was a gift the tough tittys. You will lose.

Ray cried copiously in court, told lengthy and detailed stories about the couple's relationship and ranted against Palmer's attorney.

Kaufman warned Ray Wednesday that her outbursts and ramblings could cause him to declare a mistrial.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you: the client from hell. Lord knows I've had my share.

"She's a frightened young kid who finds herself in the eyes of a media whirlwind that she never anticipated," Harvey said.

Stripper, drug dealer, bank robber. She hasn't been a "frightened young kid" in a long time.

Wow. Wrong thread.

"She was always buying me things. She said God told her to."

Well then, since God is infallible, it is blasphemy for her to try to take them back. Or she's a hypocrite who's beliefs are only valid when they suit here... not that that'd ever happen.
2007-03-08 11:58:01 AM  
Next to the last line.... and now she's broke......

Convenient time to sue, isn't it.
2007-03-08 12:09:54 PM  

Heh. I loves me some wrong thread da-da.
2007-03-08 12:21:31 PM  
Wait.... I thought this was a stabbing?
2007-03-08 12:22:40 PM  
A fool and her money are soon parted. Also, I wouldn't be insulted, say, if someone bought me a trailer, but I might wonder why they didn't find an old klunker of a house instead.

Wow. Wrong thread.

DNRTFA (or even any of TA) but your post seems to fit somehow...

She became "rich" from a previous lawsuit. Hmmmm, she should win points with the jury on this one.

sorry, but this woman is a moran. Spending all of your money on a guy, to the point where you are idiotic whether you love him or not....getting mad and suing him to get your gifts back is pathetic. I pity this woman, but she made her own bed. by age 61, she should know better.
2007-03-08 12:27:34 PM  
Biatch be crazy. He should be glad he got out when he did.
2007-03-08 12:27:42 PM  
I'm holding FEMA 100% accountable for this. They should be paying her back every penny with interest.

2007-03-08 12:29:46 PM  
Do you really spend that much on some you've only known for less than a year? I mean, seriously! An $8,000 coat?

I feel for her, I really do, but that's just stupid.
2007-03-08 12:30:43 PM  
how does someone so foolish amass the money to waste like this?
2007-03-08 12:31:04 PM  
Yes, God bless America.

I'm not saying I don't feel sorry for her - feel sorry for guy's who do the same thing...but she brought it on herself.

This is America.....

How are we breeding such 'tards here?
Didn't their parents teach them anything?

Like not to blow all your money on others?

This woman has some definite mental health issues.

Run Andy, run!

Now I have been a stupid girl at times and made a car payment or 2, lots of dinners, etc, but there is a time you realize you are being taken advantage of, and it should be before you drop 20k on a guy.

Could this possibly be more uninteresting? Let me go see if Oprah is on.
2007-03-08 12:37:02 PM  
I had a girlfriend who did this. She didn't buy a truck or anything, but she did spend a lot of money on me despite my asking her to stop.
I began refusing her gifts and telling her to save her money. she started planning trips for us to take together. I refused to go. We broke up and she followed me around or months. Followed me in a car. It got a lot worse, but I won't go into it here.
Fatal attraction? I lived it.

Hasn't it been established that a man can't get an engagement ring back from an ex-fiance? Wouldn't this be the same?
2007-03-08 12:37:10 PM  
She has the buyer's remorse.

Usually people prove their worth BEFORE buying them gifts, and while I do feel bad for her, it wouldn't surprise me to find out that it was her way of hanging on to a younger man.

A childhood friend of mine "dated" a woman 20 years his senior, and when the gifts came, I said "Just make sure she knows what this truly IS, before you accept any of them."

Now I wish I'd met the 45 year old rich asian hottie first. I've seen pictures. Damn. Tag Heuer accessories, laptop, leather furniture. SHE was hanging on with mon-ay.
2007-03-08 12:37:43 PM  
This is why you never, ever, ever get engaged to anyone, ever.
2007-03-08 12:38:12 PM  
I wish I had a woman buy me a trailer home.
2007-03-08 12:39:28 PM  
I remember this period of time that my roommate was hanging out with this girl that he worked with. Eventually she buys him some really nice clothes, and some cologne, etc.... We thought she was just rich... turns out that she had been telling everyone that they worked with that they were an item, and sabotaging him with at least one other girl that he liked at work. Then, when my roomie figures all this out she threatens to break in and take it all back. I told him to tell her that he gave it all to Good Will... which he angrily told her when she inevitably called for the 8th time that evening. Telling her that he "wouldn't piss on you if you were on fire" was his own idea, and a damn fine touch I might add.

Good times...
2007-03-08 12:39:56 PM  
Good luck ever having another boyfriend again, biatch. After this, you'll be lucky if a man even looks at you.

2007-03-08 12:40:13 PM  
This biatch is obviously cuckoo for cocoa puffs.
2007-03-08 12:40:35 PM  

What in God's name is that? I need contextual clues!!
2007-03-08 12:40:53 PM  
Where's your god now? Why he's at home, WASHING HIS TIGHTS! Good for the stupid biatch :-)

Wow, this case has EVERYTHING. Love, lawsuits, meth, motherhood, cash, gifts, jail time...

Used to be people understood that you didn't accept large gifts from an amour unless you planned to stick around for a while. This woman sounds so idiotic in her ways, though (why not buy him stuff you can keep in your name, like real estate) that she deserves to see her cash go whistling off in the night. Hell, if courts rule that women can keep engagement rings, this guy should be able to keep all the gifts.

Can't buy me love, love
Can't buy me love

I'll buy you a diamond ring my friend, if it makes you feel all right
I'll give you anything my friend, if it makes you feel all right
For I don't care too much for money, for money can't buy me love

I'll give you all I've got to give, if you say you love me too.
I may not have a lot to give but what I've got I give to you.
For I don't care too much for money, for money can't buy me love.

Can't buy me love, ev'rybody tells me so
Can't buy me love, no, no, no, no

Say you don't need no diamond ring and I'll be satisfied
Tell me that you want the kind of things that money just can't buy
For I don't care too much for money, for money can't buy me love

Can't buy me love, love
Can't buy me love

.... you must be new to fark, give me doughnuts. I can help you with a PSA that might help;
even in a thread with the title; "Woman showers fiance with gifts. Man flirts with other woman on street. Woman breaks off engagement, sues man. God bless America" .... expect to see an image of Bush ( wierd snapshot, or photoshop ) because .... Bush sucks. Strange? No, this is to be expected.
that is all.

They've got names for guys like him.

Hey, she brought it on herself. I can't say as I feel sorry for her. After a while she'd have to notice that he's going all Stedman on her.
2007-03-08 12:45:35 PM  
ConsideringPorn: SHE was hanging on with mon-ay.
