“OLG has verified that the ticket in question was purchased by Maurice Thibeault and will proceed to pay him one-half (approximately $3.07 million) of the prize on or about December 30, 2017,” the provincial gaming agency said in a statement.

A UK man who won million in the lottery has been ordered to share his winnings with his ex-wife, who left him for another man 10 years ago. Even when he was out of work he made sure she was all right. "And right from the start Wendy was going to get a big gift."

She said if they won the lottery , they agreed the money would be theirs as a couple . That didn’t go according to plan. On Sept. 20, Thibeault bought the lottery ticket that won half the - million jackpot, but Robertson said he didn’t tell her .

“The only formal process that we have left to us is a statement of claim. Other than something that’s agreed to by the parties, the next step is a statement of claim,” said Pickard.

“She does claim that half of the $6.1 million is hers. She doesn’t dispute his half. It’s our position that what’s being paid to court is entirely hers,” he said.

“They shared everything. She’s adamant and quite confident that she’s entitled to her half. Despite the fact that he’s going to get his half first, she doesn’t think that changes her entitlement.”

Neither Thibeault, 46, nor his lawyer, Richard Dinham, returned repeated messages seeking comment.

Sources close to Robertson have said she asked Thibeault if the ticket, which had the numbers 6, 17, 29, 37, 45, and 47 on it, had won and he responded that it hadn’t.

Her friends say she thought nothing of it until he moved out of her house five days after the draw.

In their two years and one month of living together in her house, with her teen daughter from a previous marriage, the couple often played the lottery.

Thibeault bought the ticket at a Chatham convenience store using a debit card linked to his personal bank account.

His friends say while she texted to him to ask if he bought a ticket, he did not ask her whether their numbers had won.

They also maintain he had been planning for months to end the relationship and the lottery win merely expedited the separation.

The two are not considered common-law spouses as they had not co-habited for the requisite three years and have no children together.

On Sept. 25, Robertson, a federal public servant, arrived home to find Thibeault, a father of three who worked at a granite and glass supply firm, had cleared out all his belongings from their shared home. He had also quit his job.

The other half of the overall $12.2-million prize was won by a ticket holder in Quebec.
