PONTIAC, M.I. -- A Michigan man who won an $80 million lottery jackpot while going through divorce proceedings will have to share with his ex. After taxes and deductions, Rich Zelasko's Mega Millions winnings amounted to $38,873,628, according to court documents. Despite the couple already being separated for two years when he bought the ticket in 2013, an appeals court ruled that the windfall was part of the marital estate.
