A North Carolina woman who won the lottery may have used some of her winnings to post bail for her fiancé – and she’s not ashamed one bit.

Marie Holmes, who won a cool $188 million in Powerball back in February, responded to critics on a North Carolina TV station’s Facebook page.

What Y’all need to be worried about is Y’all money and not how I spend mine this is benefitting Y’all how? And no he’s no drug dealer or user but who are Y’all to judge anybody? I will definitely pray for Y’all because it’s much need…they talked about Jesus so I’m not surprised Y’all are talking about me but be blessed though.

She has reportedly posted the $6 million bail for her fiancé Lamarr McDow, who had been arrested for violating the curfew requirements of his pre-trial release in late July.

According to a Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman, a bondsman posted the $3 million bond for McDow, and he was released with a GPS monitoring device.

McDow was arrested at the home he shares with Holmes and was charged with trafficking heroin and possession with intent to manufacture, sell and deliver heroin after an investigation in which 8,000 bags of heroin were seized, according to a WWAY report.

Holmes was also reportedly behind McDow’s previously release back in March. She chose to collect a lump sum on the Powerball earnings, which amounted to $88 million after taxes.

Holmes replied to several commenters who questioned her decision.
