More from thestar.com: For someone who spent her teen years bouncing from shelter to shelter, Tirabassi was unprepared for the millionaire lifestyle. That cheque might as well have been a money tree in the yard it felt like cash for life. Suddenly, life was but a dream. She took friends on wild, all-expenses-paid trips to Cancun, Florida, Las Vegas, California, the Caribbean. She bought a house, and married Vinny. They eventually had three children. In https://www.rebelmouse.com/lottocashmachine/ 2006, the newlyweds and blended Tirabassi family moved to a massive $515,000 home in Ancaster. Despite the lottery win, Tirabassi took out a $360,000 mortgage on the house. Vinny says they owned four vehicles: a bright yellow Hummer, a Mustang, a Dodge Charger and a $200,000-plus, souped-up Cadillac Escalade, Tirabassis baby. The vanity licence plate read BABIPHAT, after one of her favourite designer clothing lines. Ancaster neighbours hated that Cadillac. Equipped with interior turntables and sound mixers, it blared hip hop in the driveway that shook their quiet suburban street. Tirabassi didnt like her neighbours. They didnt like young people, she says. Besides the extravagant vehicles, a lot of the cash went to family and friends. Too much, Tirabassi now admits. She gave her parents $1 million.
