23rd November 2022 – (Bangkok) The alleged cheating wife of a lottery winner who ran off with her lover and her cuckold husband’s 6 million baht winnings agreed to return the money she has left. She insists she does not have a lover, despite what her son and husband said, and that she will return the money on the condition her husband leaves the family home within three days.

The lottery winner, Manit, reported to the police that his 45 year old wife, Angkanarat, stole six million baht prize-winning money and eloped with her lover.

Manit’s story went viral on Thai social media. He and his children were invited onto a Channel 3 news programme, Hon Krasae, on Friday, 18th November , for an interview. Angkanarat was also invited to join the show via phone.

During the broadcast, Angkanarat stressed that she was not Manit’s wife because they did not sign a marriage certificate. She also insisted that she would never return the money to Manit but would give some cash to her children.

Manit announced on the show that he will stop the police complaint process if she agrees to come home. Angkanarat did not come home and no money was transferred to any of her children so, Manit continued with his police complaint saying he felt betrayed.

Thairath reported today that Angkanarat went home on Sunday, November 29, after learning that her husband had filed a complaint against her.

The family went to the police station together to agree on the money and relationship in front of the police.

Angkanarat revealed she had 3.1 million baht left in her account out of the nearly 6 million baht windfall. She added she has already given 200,000 baht to her eldest son and will split what she had left into three parts: 1 million baht for the youngest daughter, 500,000 baht for the middle son and 1.6 million baht for Manit.

The conditions she set: her daughter can withdraw the money when she turns 20 years old while her middle son can access his money when he turns 25 years old.

Angkanarat added that the family house is hers and Manit must leave it within three days.

She insists the relationship between her and her husband is dead and if he returns to the house without permission, she will file a police complaint.

Manit told the media that he is happy with the conditions and would leave his children with their mother. He would move from the Isaan province of Roi Et to work in Bangkok. He said he would be happy to come back in the future if his wife forgave him.

Manit also transferred 100,000 baht back to his wife so she can take care of the house and the children.

Angkanarat insists she does not have any lovers and travelled to Nong Kai alone. She said she was sick of the complaints from her son and husband and wanted a getaway to clear her mind.

Angkanarat went on to say that she intended to become a nun and donate the entire sum to various temples. However, after she was accused of cheating she decided to come back to clear her name.

Thairath reported that the family agreed to end everything today. After the money is divided according to the plan, Manit will withdraw the accusation against his wife.
