Runaway Bride sues ex-fiance
LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- Jennifer Wilbanks, who became known as the "runaway bride" after heading west days before her lavish wedding in 2005, is suing her former fiance for $500,000. Wilbanks and John Mason broke up for good in May, about a year after she disappeared and then falsely claimed she had been abducted and sexually assaulted. Wilbanks seeks $250,000 as her share of a home Mason bought after selling their story to an agent, plus $250,000 in punitive damages for allegedly abusing the power of attorney she granted for him to handle their financial affairs, according to Atlanta television station WAGA.
Of course, this is her side of the story. Even so, if John Mason did rip her off, good on him. After putting up with her BS I am not going to condemn him for cashing in and shutting her out of the profits.
