ONTARIO, Canada As reported by the CBC: "The man who won one of the country's largest lottery prizes has made a deal over temporary support for his ex-wife, who is battling to try to get half of the $30 million windfall.

"Lawyers for Ray Sobeski and Nynna Ionson said the agreement was reached on Wednesday in a court in London, Ont.

"...Ionson was going to court to try to get $9,000 a month from Sobeski to support her while she continues a legal suit seeking half of his Super 7 jackpot.

"... the fight over whether Ionson is entitled to share the jackpot will continue in the new year.

"...In affidavits filed in court, Ionson says they were still married and romantically involved when Sobeski won the jackpot, which he collected in April 2004.

"...Ionson, a former exotic dancer who was Sobeski's third wife, accuses him of trying to hide his lottery win from her by waiting almost a year to collect it.

"...Sobeski, a former computer technician, says their marriage was based solely on sex and claims the couple separated long before the lottery windfall..."
