Text Message from Ex-Boyfriend Helps Jilted Fiance Keep $53K Diamond Ring

Text Message from Ex-Boyfriend Helps Jilted Fiance Keep $53K Diamond RingBe very careful what you text in the heat of the moment. Louis Billittier Jr. certainly has learned his lesson. A text message has cost him $53,000.
Billittier broke up with his bride-to-be in 2012. Did he talk to her face-face or over the phone?  Not exactly. He opted to send the bad news by text message.
His girlfriend, Christa Clark, replied angrily, “Your doing this through a text message???”
His fateful response: “Plus you get a $50,000 parting ring. Enough for a down payment on a house.”
A New York state Supreme Court judge ruled that the ring was no longer involved in a marriage contract, but was now a “parting gift.” His key evidence was that text message.
Billittier had sued Clark to get the ring back. But the Buffalo News reports that Judge Russell Buscaglia ruled last week that Clark was entitled to the white gold, 2.97-carat diamond ring or its fair market value.
Billittier, a restaurateur, and Clark, a nail technician, had been engaged 14 months. Billittier called off the wedding when Clark refused to sign a prenuptial agreement.
