Relationships can be complex, and when we think we know everything about our desired partner, they can end up surprising us. Of course, we have all had our fair share of crazy ex stories; who took things to a whole new level. While most of us would rather go our own separate ways when things turn sour, there are a few who simply cannot fathom the thought of splitting up. For reasons unknown, these people did not take their partner breaking up with them in a good way. Instead of moving on with their lives, these 10 people decided to disrupt their exes lives, to make them as miserable as possible. Here, we are listing some stories that prove how crazy love can make some people.
1. A Dutch woman called her ex-boyfriend 65,000 times in a period of one year.
It’s not unusual for people to try to get back together with their ex after a painful breakup. Healing takes time and sometimes, it’s best to take it slow and help each other discover that it is possible to live without one another. But, what happens when the person in question is someone who will not leave you alone and continuously tries to contact you? That’s what happened in 2011, when a 42-year-old woman kept calling, texting and sending e-mails to a 62-year-old man.
The man had apparently broken up with her after the two dated for a short period of time. However, she became obsessed with him and wanted to get back together “after their apparent breakup”. In an effort to re-establish their relationship, the woman called him an average of 178 times a day for 12 months straight. Assuming that she sleeps for 8 hours every night, that’s two calls every 10 minutes. A year later, the man reported the incident to police, who arrested her and charged her with stalking.
She was later released on the condition that she would not try to establish any further contact. However, the temptation was too strong for the woman, who called him as soon as she bailed out. She was once again arrested and held until judges could decided what to do with her. (source)

Since the incident took place close to Christmas, Simmons decided to take his antics to a whole new level by printing some of the intimate photos he had taken of his then ex-girlfriend.
Simmons then got creative and printed them as Christmas cards, labeled them and sent them to his ex-girlfriend’s family members. After a few of them received the card and opened it for a surprise, the police were involved, who intercepted the remaining cards before they reached their destinations. When questioned, Simmons claimed he knew nothing of the cards since he had received one as well. However, authorities were able to trace the whole ordeal back to Simmons and charged him with unlawful photography and impersonation. He pleaded guilty but was given a suspended sentence of two years probation. (source)

Jealousy can cause people to do some pretty interesting things that they would later regret. A Florida woman’s jealousy did just that after her boyfriend broke up with her.

5. A hardworking man was accepted to his dream school, however, his girlfriend, who was jealous of her partner succeeding in life, deleted his acceptance email and faked a rejection letter.
Eric Abramovitz is a hardworking man who dreamed of being accepted to the Colburn Conservatory of Music in Los Angeles. The college sophomore, who was studying music at McGill University at the time, had spent years practicing late nights to audition in front of one of the best clarinet instructors in the world, Yehuda Gilad. Gilad accepts only two new students each year at Colburn, and Abramovitz believed that he performed well. His instincts were right and Gilad had chosen him as one of the students.
When the university e-mailed Abramovitz in 2014 to congratulate him on his achievement – a full scholarship that paid for his tuition, room and board, which was worth about $50,000 a year, his jealous girlfriend Jennifer Lee was the first one to read it. Knowing that Abramovitz would succeed in life, Lee responded to the email that he would not accept the scholarship because he planned to “be elsewhere”; then deleted the e-mail. She then created a fake e-mail and tried to convince Abramovitz that he was accepted to another university that he did not wish to go. Abramovitz was crushed by this news. A few months later, the two broke up for unrelated reasons.
Fast forward to 2016, when Abramovitz auditioned for a graduate program at USC, Gilad happens to teach there. An upset Gilad asked Abramovitz why he was there since he declined the previous offer. Abramovitz was confused by the question and the two talked for a bit before he understood that something wasn’t right. After Abramovitz went through his email, he noticed that the e-mail describing his rejection was named after his ex-girlfriend. His friends became involved in the case and suggested that she might have played a role. Abramovitz used some of the known passwords she would use and was able to login to the e-mail ID and discover that his then girlfriend was the one behind his rejection letter. An upset Abramovitz took the case to court, who found Lee to be guilty and forced her to pay $265,000 in damages for ruining his career. (source)

10. Denise Rossi won $1.3 million in the California Lottery and divorced her husband so that she would not have to share it with him.
On December 28, 1996, Denise Rossi won $1.3 million in the California Lottery. Her husband of 25 years was not aware of the winnings and Denise decided to end their marriage so she could keep the winnings for herself. Her plan worked out since Denise managed to change the address of her checks being mailed to her mother’s house. However, more than two years after the divorce, a misdirected piece of mail landed in Thomas Rossi’s mailbox. The mail was a solicitation letter from the company that was paying her in lump sum. It read, we have “helped hundreds of lottery winners like you around the country receive a lump sum payment for the present value of their future annual lottery payments”.
Thomas Rossi was surprised to see the letter and started doing some research when he found out that his ex-wife was a lottery winner. A few days after receiving the mail, Thomas Rossi obtained a court injunction that halted the 20 annual installments of $66,800 to Denise. Through his lawyer, Thomas found out that under California’s community property laws, he would have legally received half of the winnings. However, Denise hid her winnings during the divorce and later claimed in court that it was a gift from a friend. The judge did not buy it and gave it all to him. (source)
