- Former teen jackpot winner ‘felt lonely’ in her 3-bed house
- Edinburgh-based Jane Park currently facing drink-driving charge
A young woman who won £1 million ($1.2 million) with her first ever Lotto ticket aged just 17 has sold her three-bedroom property in East Lothian, Scotland to move back in with her mum after admitting to feeling ‘lonely’ away from the family home.
Jane Park, 21, scooped her lottery win four years ago and promptly purchased her own home in Prestonpans, also in East Lothian, for £169,995 in November 2013.
Spend, spend, spend
Following her shock lottery success, Ms Park splashed out on a string of lavish purchases, from designer jewellery, handbags and shoes to exclusive holidays and breast enhancement surgery.
However, that millionaire lifestyle did not appear to be all it was cracked up to be, with Jane speaking out on numerous occasions on national television about the bizarre nature of being labelled a Lottery winner.
“What is my purpose in life?”
Park said to the Sunday People: “I have material things but apart from that my life is empty. What is my purpose in life? I thought it would make [my life] ten times better but it’s made it ten times worse. I wish I had no money most days. I say to myself, ‘My life would be so much easier if I hadn’t won’.”
Ms Park was spotted selling items of furniture from her property on Facebook during the house sale, posting images of a red sofa, white table and matching chairs on the social network.
The 21-year-old is no stranger to controversy and is also facing a drink-driving ban after allegedly blowing three times the legal limit while at the wheel of her BMW 1 Series car at a McDonald’s drive-thru in Edinburgh last October.
