Marie Holmes

Fontella Marie Holmes, the single mother who won $188 million in the Brunswick County (NC) Powerball Lottery, paid $6 million to bail her drug dealer boyfriend out of jail again.

Holmes, 26, became a minor overnight celebrity when she went to pick up her big check, wearing a wool beanie and a smile as wide as Texas.

At the time Holmes said she would use her windfall to travel and make a better life for her children.

"I don’t have to worry about depending on nobody, I can do it all by myself. I can go back to school and make an even better life for my kids,” Holmes said in February after winning the $188 million jackpot.

But as soon as she received $127 million in one lump sum payment, Holmes paid $300,000 -- 10% of her live-in boyfriend Lamar McDow's $3 million bond -- to spring him out of jail.

Then last month, the Shallotte, North Carolina native was arrested for marijuana possession. Her gang-affiliated drug dealer boyfriend was also arrested on an outstanding weapons charge.

A judge was so irked that a violent gang member was out on the streets that he raised McDow's bond to $6 million cash.

But Holmes promptly paid the $6 million to bond McDow out of jail again.

Also arrested in the drug bust at Holmes' house were Damarius Simmons, 21 and Danell McNeil, 31, who police say lived at the house with Holmes, McDow and Holmes's children.

McDow was arrested last November on numerous drug charges in connection with a drug seizure last summer of 8,000 bags of heroin.

Many criticized Holmes for bailing a known gang banger and drug dealer out of jail twice.

"Where was this boyfriend when you were without, living in a trailer with your kids, mother, and uncle? Did he do for you and your kids?," asked one commenter on Starnewsonline.com.

      She's a hood rat. That lottery check won't change that. Any bets on how soon she will be broke? I'm going with 2 years. That's if her an her boyfriend aren't arrested for kingpin weight berfore then. If she winds up doing years in prison then the money will last a little longer of course.

      HAHAHA. I think I missed that day. I guess God won't bless me and allow me to win, because he doesn't want me to give ill-begotten money in His name.

      Actually most lottery winners go broke within a short time frame.

    • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

      He wreckless she wreckless for him..bad combo. Good girl, bad boy.. the thing that usually happen is that the good girl help the bad boy get right..He is hard wired to the life and now he has disposable income and he doesn't care.

    • You Aint Shyt-LuhYou, B.Sweet

      I wouldn't give my church no money... I might do something like pave the parking lot or build a building but no cash round these parts.

    • Its Me

      People who know her eat her ALIVE on them news comments sections. I DO MEAN ALIVE. Just like StarNewsOnline was mentioned up top. There are others. Fayetteville Observer and all the news stations.

      I wish the NC Lottery would keep these folks anon. I HATE that its a state law that they HAVE to be made public.

    • You Aint Shyt-LuhYou, B.Sweet

      That might have assisted this bail being so high this time. They know she gone pay and he's gone violate. The county wins.

    • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

      No she is managing her money badly. You know..well you probably don't know cuz you are REAL GROWN lol. When young girls in love its like homegirl on Coming to America.. its "What ever you like" mentality.

    • You Aint Shyt-LuhYou, B.Sweet

      Agreed. You gotta do all kinds of paperwork to not be made public. Pay an ex boyfriend to stalk you and get charged with stalking before you notify the state you won. Then you gotta get it approved and they may deny it.

    • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

      Its simple when you win. You hire an attorney to represent you. You tell them you choose to be anonymous when collecting your money. They can help you take the proper steps to do so. There are a lot of lotto winners whos names have gone unpublished. It is not mandatory to be named as the winner in public.

      The lottery needs stricter rules: Winners with drug or gang affiliations, that includes morons who date or marry thugs, forfeit their prize.

    • You Aint Shyt-LuhYou, B.Sweet

      Didn't she call the news people herself before officially collecting? Or am I remembering that incorrectly.

    • Its Me

      We are currently trying to pass a law to keep these folks names private.

      "Like most of the 44 states with lotteries, North Carolina considers the identities of winners of large prizes to be a matter of public record. But this year, in which winners already have come forward more than 40 times to claim awards that the state later publicized, lawmakers have considered whether the winners should be allowed to collect their money without having their names disclosed."

      Really!?? I think in GA you can claim without being in the media as the winner they just give details without name 65 year old mother of 12 wins lotto in Willacoochie, GA.. they don't have to give the name. I would be scared if people knew I did;

    • SummerBaby

      I disagree. Many people do foolish things with their money. This is only news because she's a black woman.

    • No ma’am

      I think a lot of ppl want it to be public bc it's an ego thing. Winning the lotto is an ultimate phuck you to anybody who did you wrong or talked about you. Esp if you're a single mom of four. I'm sure she got plenty of those "you're ruining your life" conversations having all them kids so young.

    • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

      I remember it being spun as such a feel good story when she won. How finally someone who really needed the money would get it. How does bailing out this repeat offender make the lives of her children better? Pissing 6 MILLION DOLLARS AWAY on this, she could have invested that 6 mil, built a dream house, put it towards mutual funds for the kids, traveled WELL etc... Iyanla needs to call Fontella and fix her life.

      Me too... scared as heck.

    • ATL White Guy

      I was hoping Ms. Holmes would have received some sound advice from someone after she won the lottery to leave her past behind and move her kids away into a better environment. If this man wasn't supportive before she won the lottery and stepped up to be a real man - he's just going to be a leech on her life now. I hope and pray for Ms. Holmes and her family that she comes to grips with what she can be for her and her kids now and take the right actions. Otherwise a few years from now we'll see her on tv talking about how she bankrupt.

    • Its Me

      Sadly. No anon winners in this state. And they will probably STAY public. The lottery spokesman/director of communications is actually one of my old editors. HE is the one who does the daggone announcing.

      Him, along with other lottery officials, are opposing the law trying to get passed.

      They feel that the credibility of the lottery would be undermined if winners' identities are concealed.

      This has been a HUGE deal here.

      If she lost her kids to the State for knowing he sells drugs and continues to do so. Maybe then she would understand how stupid she is being. I feel sorry for her. But how good of a mother can u b when 3 drug dealers live in your house. That's is more dangerous than not being an anonymous lottery winner.

      That would be my choice right there! I've never won the lotto and work a regular job, yet I'm very private about how much money I make, have in the bank, etc. It's no one's business.

      Prayers indeed because if he's about that life, everybody and their mama knows she has that money.

      And...I pray she is able to get her bail back and she can move on safely and wisely for herself and her children. No one in the fam can try to talk her into getting a trustee or financial planner besides the one she keeps bailing out?

    • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

      I don't like it better than Empire and it's not even near the same level as The Wire which I was kinda hoping for. Ghost not dying is what makes it less real. The Wire would murk a star in a NYC minute because that's what happens in real life. Drug dealers are more likely to die of be in jail than to make it to Ghost's age totally unscathed. But I do like the show and I was Ghost to stay free even if he never makes it out of the game.

      I still stuck on 6mil on bail. I know the judge and no one elae was expecting that.

      I'm sad about this, for real.

    • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

      That's what I thought. Welp...

    • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

      ...'Taint no body's business if I do.

    • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

      I pray you're wrong, but the way this is going...

    • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

      If you don't have a plan for your money, you can bet someone else does.

    • Petty_boots

      Yeah, I hear ya, but 27 mil woulda been my limit to spend on everything that you just named, with a few dumb ideas to boot lol. And like you said, there'd be more left over. I think that judge set the bail so high because they knew she'd pay. I woulda left his ass right there, relocated, and found me someone new. My heart breaks for the kids.

    • Monnae

      The sad part about it is, they are going to keep locking his arse up so she can spend all that lotto money. Yall know dam well they mad that ha chocolate ass got it to spend anyway!

      How they spend their money is their business. We don't talk about How Rich White people spend their Millions on lawyers to get out of trouble now do we? Such a double standard.

    • let the truth be known

      she'll be brought in another year or so smfh

    • lil goodie

      I think the thing it's she puts it out there.....anybody and everybody is going to have something to say..... when she won she should have kept get mouth close and collected her money and kept it moving..she the one on talk shows and they news telling her business.... let's just hope for the kids sake she did put something away for each one of them once the get of age do they don't have to struggle.....

    • SUZANNE SUGERBAKER

      why. dont they realize that it really puts people at risk. Everybody dont want people knowing all their business. This is a very bad law. Can it be changed?

    • stanley

      If this Hoodrat wants to waste Millions on her boyfriend, that's her business. I won't lose sleep tonight lol.... F*K her kids.. I'm only worried about rather or not Mines can eat.

    • Blue

      She should have just put 20 on his commissary and kept it pushing.

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      That bish crazy af. No way. His bail offenses will nickle and dime her money away. I guess.

    • TheWildChild

      I'm surprised none of her babies/kids fathers have now sued for custody so she can pay them child support. But her catching a case like this, it's coming. ? She better hope the State of NC doesn't gain custody and request support for neglecting the disabled child, by putting them in danger by association with a convicted felon, they tend to do that in that region. ?

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      If she was living in a trailer with her mom and uncle, it's kinda hard to prove she was unfit and you're so fit to get full custody. I think any judge would see right through that make the father(s) GTFOH quick.

    • ABbaby

      This heffa is straight up stupid. She is going to let this dude ruin her life.

    • Yes, I’m That Leah

      Right. This guy is the devil.

      Too bad there is not some way that lottery officials automatically put some of the winnings away in trusts for any children younger then 18 that they can access for college, and if they don't go to college, they can't get until they are 21 or something like that.

      so very, very, very, disappointed with this story. she sounded so smart and focus when she was interviewed at the beginning of her winning. she needs someone to make the spending decisions for and those children's future. can't believe this story

      She'll be broke this time next year she's less than smart

    • Irish Lopes

      Her self esteem is soooo low he tells her just what she needs too hear. Poor kids DCF needs to come and take them family members needs to report hwr dum ass immediately concercerning the welfare of their safety. Drugs in the house and others are within the home. This guy has no care nor does he loves her. Her mother must feel ashame of the whole situation get counseling for this ignorant girl. She"ll be broke not doing wisely things with it. Sad you can just look and see his appearence on his face with smurkness all he want is out bail posted.

    • ki renee

      Dumb .....

    • arianna17

      She shouldn't have taken the lump sum payout because she hangs around the wrong crowd. The monthly payments would have been a better way to go for her. This way she would have a monthly income for the next 25 years and not risk going broke. She still could have invested some money and lived well. Somebody should have told her this.

    • digital_femme

      Stupid, stupid beyotch. That money will be gone in two years. People, let's please stop living down to our stereotypes.

    • Princess RichieRich

      Actually her dumb drug addicted @ss didnt buy the ticket. Her mom bought it at her request. But her dumb @ss will be broke sooner then a few years if not dead from a drug overdose. Some people see the lottery as a blessing, but fail to realize how much of a curse it can be ( to an @-hole who is is not use to money ).

    • Princess RichieRich

      She dont owe the church $hit!

    • Princess RichieRich

      I wouldnt step foot in church either after winning...all they do is beg in churches and she will become the piggy bank for the whole church. Wtf i look like putting the pastor and his wife in bentlys! But she is a idiot for bailing him out!

    • Princess RichieRich

      Amen! Lmfao!

    • Princess RichieRich

      Sweetie read the whole article. At firs it was 10 percent of a 3 million dollar bond..she got him. The judge saw this then put another bond up at 6 million cash!!! In total she spent 9 million dollars on a ni--a that aint never spend more then $100 on her. Smfh.

      I find that most people find it very hard to imagine themselves in another persons shoes. What most people tend to do is JUDGE other peoples' actions based upon their own, many times, totally different life circumstances... Not really the same thing. In my objective and well thought out estimation, people are people. Everyone does the best that he knows and that's all that ANYONE can do.

    • Smart woman

      This is news because she is a dumb woman

    • LYDIA

      I'm still glad she won because whether or not she does everything right with it, she needed it as a single struggling mother and she thought of God first.

    • LYDIA

      I wonder too in light of this.

    • LYDIA

      I don't know how she can be broke in this lifetime with over 100 million!

    • LYDIA

      Why Is he selling heroin when they have all of that money, unless she's not giving him any and that seems doubtful?!!

    • LYDIA

      And how do you know he never spent anything on her, are you a friend or relative though I don't agree with her doing that. She can afford to dump him now, lol!

    • LYDIA

      She didn't give you and him a few mil? Lol

    • LYDIA

      I sooo agree, I even said tonight, it would be a big FU to many people and it's like you would want certain ones to know! I'd rub the heck out of it in their faces but very subtly, lol...you don't want to brag too much! Even as I write this, I guess you are well aware of the 500 million dollar lottery they're deciding but I didn't play.

    • LYDIA

      I don't think that you necessarily become a target, only to those that know you! Everybody else is happy for or jealous of you and that's all.

    • LYDIA

      Yeah his fellow gang bangers might try to rob them for it too!

    • LYDIA

      Well she is very stupid or sick in the head if she chooses to stay in that situation when clearly she no longer has to!
