I don't think folks are considering the Marie Holmes situation from all angles. Yes, it's true she walked off with $88 million from the lottery. It's true she's bailed her boyfriend out of jail four times now, paying out a total of $21 million. And while one commenter stated that for the first time in her life she needed to see a dick pic (to know what $21 million-dick looks like), I think folks are being a little harsh here.
Keep in mind what started her man's legal troubles: he got busted with 8,000 bags of heroin. Not grams, bags. Now - *sniff* - when your man is dealing drugs on that level, you can't just tell the authorities, "Oh...well...I didn't know." Whether you knew or not is irrelevant because no
Flipping the script, look at it from the dude's side. Your woman just got $88 million deposited into her bank account. And while that would normally be a blessing, you're involved in some deeply illegal shit, and this whole winning-the-lottery fiasco has put your ass under a microscope. So, quite naturally, you get busted for doing shit. Your girl is poised to take her Benjamins, her four babies, and hightail it off to an island somewhere while you are stuck rotting in a cold-ass jail.
Whatcha gon do? Just let her fly off into the sunset with her millions and your children? Of course not.
In times like this, you don't want to pay attention to what people are saying in the media, but what they're not saying. 'Cause let's think about this realistically: you've just been cut a check for $88 million. Your significant other - not spouse - gets locked up in jail over some shit. No one who is truly free and clear of their SO's fuckery is going to stick around. There is No Such Thing as $21 million dick. It does not exist. If I won that much money and my SO was jailed shortly thereafter, I would just take that as a sign from the gods that it was not meant to be. And once I saw all those zeroes safely in my account, I'd be on the first flight out. #Deuces
So long story short, I think that every time Holmes covers for her boyfriend, she's actually covering for herself. Once the legal dust settles and she gets the bulk of her bail money back...she's outta there.
