Man Slaps Ex-Girlfriend With $200,000 Bill After She Rejects His Marriage Proposal

Boy meets girl. Boys asks girl to marry him. Girls says no. Boys sends girl $200,000 breakup bill.

At least that's what happened in Australia when 65-year-old Bruce Dusting proposed to 42-year-old single mom Marie Lacombe and she shot him down. After the rejection, Dusting sent Lacombe a $200,000 bill accounting for every dime he spent on her during their alleged four-year courtship, as reported by A Current Affair in Australia.

The enormous bill includes money for Zumba classes, dental appointments, cash for Lacombe's kid's birthday party, a tummy tuck and even breast implants. Apparently Dusting expected to be paid back, telling ACA, "She will not get away with this."

But Lacombe tells ACA a different story, saying, "He's a shark."

In fact, the single mom claims the two were never romantically involved, explaining she was his dance teacher and they became friends. She says any money Dusting gave her was his choice and the bill is an act of revenge.

Of course, Dusting isn't the first to look for revenge post-breakup.

Recently a man in New York filed a lawsuit against his ex after he dumped her, claiming she blasted bogus information about their sex life all over the Internet. She accused him of "rape play", "auto-erotic asphyxiation," and having a "micro penis," according to Gawker.
