If you click on this eBay auction for a wedding dress, the first thing you’ll notice is a tip from the seller: “Great condition but needs dry cleaning before wearing to get rid of the stench of betrayal.”
Further inspection will reveal that it is currently going for £64,900.00. In American dollars, that is $86,180.72. Why is the bidding so high? Well, the woman is “selling as [she needs] to pay for [her] divorce which [her] ex-husband has left [her] to foot the bill for.”
The dry-cleaning theme continues in the description:
I didn’t have time to get it dry-cleaned myself before my cheating scumbag of a husband decided to call an end to our marriage … If you want a dress that is full of bad memories and shattered hopes and dreams then this is the one for you! Hope this dress brings you a lot more happiness than it brought me in the end and if not…well you can always sell it on here!
If you’ve got any questions – either about the dress or the skank that my husband ran off with – then please feel free to contact me!
If you’re questioning whether this is real or not, consider this: If it were a ploy for money, why would the husband allow his photos to be posted and his reputation to be dragged through the online mud? (This is the same argument I made when people suggested Jay-Z never cheated on Beyoncé and the two plotted Lemonade together as a money-making scheme. Do you think Hov wants to be remembered as the guy who cheated on Queen Bey? Really?)
There you go! If you’re in the market for an altered dress in a size six, here’s your chance!
