Trans woman wins $5 million, won’t share a dime with her awful children who rejected her

Trans woman wins $5 million, won’t share a dime with her awful children who rejected her

Melissa Ede hasn’t exactly had an easy life. The 57-year-old cab driver’s adult children, ages 19 to 39, completely disowned her when she transitioned into a woman, going so far as to change their last names to avoid any association with her. Her parents also rejected her.

“They cut me out of their lives,” Ede tells The Sun. “They weren’t there during my hardest times and rejected me.”

Ede’s life changed forever last week when she won £4million ($5.4 million) on a scratch-off lottery ticket purchased at a gas station, and she says she won’t be sharing any of it with her transphobic kids.

“I don’t want false love off them because I’ve got money now,” Ede says.

Instead, she plans on spending her riches on a new house, a new car, and a lavish wedding to her girlfriend. Oh, and a new set of teeth. She’s been wanting one of those for a while.

Ede tells The Sun she only plans on sharing her newfound wealth with “the people who have stood by me through thick and thin.”

Sometimes kids just have to learn the hard way.
