Jacksonville, FLORIDA – Gloria Mackenzie, US lottery winner, has sued her son along with his financial advisors for alleged mismanagement of her winning amount. The 90-year-lady became the biggest winner of single Powerball in US history six years ago. She claimed that her fortune was poorly invested by her son, Scott Mackenzie, due to which she lost millions of dollars.

In 2013, Gloria Mackenzie won $590.5m on the Powerball when lotto results were declared and took home $278m after the tax deduction from the total amount. She gave half of the winning amount to her son as he had assured her for taking care of her for the rest of her life. Also, due to inability in managing such a huge amount of funds, she entitled him with the power of attorney of her finances.

The lawsuit filed by Ms. Mackenzie last month stated that her son and his financial advisors invested her money poorly due to which she lost millions of dollars. Had the amount been invested carefully, she could have earned a huge profit from it. According to the lawsuit, the financial advisors charged $2m for carrying out the investment.

However, her son, Scott Mackenzie, said that the allegations are baseless and there is no justification behind the lawsuit. Mr. Mackenzie said in court papers that the allegations are only based on the introduction of Gloria to an investment advisor to put the fund in the profitable investment schemes. Also, he said that the entire decision to invest money was taken according to the will of Gloria Mackenzie.
