Not even a $273 million jackpot would bring Eileen Murray back to her ex-husband.
Murray, the ex-wife of the unemployed New Jersey man, Mike Weirsky, who just won the hefty Mega Millions jackpot, told the New York Post that she has zero plans to return to her husband, to whom she was married to for 15 years before their divorce last October.
“He’s not appealing to me all of a sudden because he has this money,” she told the outlet.

Murray told the Post that she was the one bringing home the bacon in the relationship, and she paid — and currently continues to pay — spousal support. She served as a cost analyst for a utilities company while Weirsky remained unemployed.
And while her former husband expects to collect $162.5 million after taxes, she won’t be going after him for what, some would argue, she deserves.
“I’m not going after anything. I have morals. I know what I’ve worked for and it’s everything that I have,” she said.
She also doesn’t suspect her husband will approach her to square up, but she does hope he’ll “do the right thing.”
“Think about it,” she said. “How long did I work? How long did I support him? I had to give him a lot of money in the divorce. You tell me — what’s the moral thing to do?”
In a press conference, Weirsky said he heard from Murray on Thursday, but she claims she never called him. She added that she doesn’t plan to get in touch, at least for a couple of months: “He’ll think I’m there with my hand out and I have no intention to do that.”
Still, she wishes her ex well: “I want him to surround himself with good people. I don’t think anybody should be taken advantage of.”
Eileen Murray did not immediately respond to Yahoo Lifestyle’s requests for comment.
