Woman Reportedly Dumps Man After He’s Diagnosed With Cancer, But Still Wants His Super Bowl Tickets


Jan 29, 2012

In what appears to be the ultimate act of selfishness, a woman swiftly dumped her boyfriend after learning he had been diagnosed with cancer. The even more twisted part of the story, however, is that she still wants the Super Bowl tickets he bought for Christmas.

Jason Elia, a Television writer currently living in Nashville, Tenn., appeared on ESPN 97.5 in Houston to discuss his story.

Apparently, Elia had bought the tickets for him and his girlfriend. He planned on proposing to his then-girlfriend, and traveling to Indianapolis with her for the big game on Feb. 5. However, after telling her that he had been diagnosed with bladder cancer, she promptly dumped him.

Though Elia’s ex-girlfriend believes she should still have access to the tickets because he purchased them with her in mind, Elia is entertaining no such ideas. Instead, he is auctioning off the tickets on Twitter. He will be giving the tickets to the person who gets him the most followers by the end of the Pro Bowl.

Elia can be found on Twitter at @notjasonelia. A hat tip to Deadspin for pointing this story out.
