A Funny Tidbit From The Associated Press GAINESVILLE, Ga. — Nothing will heal a broken heart like $150,000.
That’s how much a Hall County jury has ruled Wayne Gibbs owes his ex-fiancee, RoseMary Shell, for breaking off their engagement. Shell sued for breach of contract after she left her $81,000-a-year job in Pensacola, Fla., in 2006 to move to Gainesville, Ga., and be with her fiancee.
Two months later, Gibbs told her he was having second thoughts. He broke up with her in March 2007. Shell now makes $31,000 a year. The jury award equals one year of her old salary plus bonuses and benefits. Shell told The Times of Gainesville she is “thrilled.”
Gibbs and his attorney declined comment to the newspaper.
