A woman who turned down a marriage proposal from a rich suitor was shocked when he handed a bill of more than £115,000 for everything he claims to have spent on her.
Single mother Marie Lacombe, 42, (left) from Melbourne, Australia, says her relationship with 65-year-old Bruce Dusting (right) was purely platonic. But it seems he felt differently about their relationship, claiming she led him on to extract money from him - which he kept an extensive list of (below image).
Dusting claims, he lend Marie some money when she needed emergency surgery. But when he went to visit her in the hospital, he found that she had got breast implants and a tummy tuck.
Ms Lacombe tells a different story. She insists that despite one loan of AU$25,000 (£14,580), the rest was given to her out of kindness. A tearful Mr Dusting told Nine Network's A Current Affair: 'This Marie has just destroyed every thought of humanity that I've had for other people.'
Whatever the truth, it is clear that Mr Dusting has been deeply hurt and heart-broken by what's happened.
