A MUM has revealed how she paid her ex a £5,800 divorce settlement in coins.
Brandi Lee, from the US, ended up filing for divorce after her husband reportedly cheated on her with a family friend.
But when the divorce court ordered her to pay him almost £6k in fees, she was fuming and decided to pay the lot in coins.
Taking to Facebook, she explained how she sent him 10 packages of dimes (similar to 10 pence coins) as payment, in boxes weighing 350 pounds each.
“So a man that I was married to, bless his heart, decided to do me the biggest favour of my life and slept with his own FRIEND’S wife,” she wrote.
“The woman who attended my WEDDING and watched me hold hands and look into the eyes of the man I loved and promise him my forever all while knowing damn well they were sleeping together!
“Well I busted ’em and that led us into divorce court, and for some god awful reason, I was ordered to pay HIM $7,500.
“It is what it is and now I have to pay him. Court’s order. So I’m paying him!
“The court order, and I quote says I have to pay him ‘the sum of $7500’. That’s it. It does not say how.”
The mum-of-two continued to explain how she went to the bank to explain her plan, revealing they were “more than happy” to assist.
“I went to our local bank, told them my story and you guessed it, those beautiful little ladies at our bank were more than happy to not only assist but to support me in my payment plan,” she explained.
And Brandi – who has bought herself a “Divorced AF” T-shirt – has been praised on Facebook, with several calling her a “genius” while another wrote: “I would have loved to see his facial expression”.
