FRESNO, Calif., Aug. 24 (UPI) — A California man has filed a lawsuit accusing his ex-fiance of fraud and deceit and demanding she return a $52,000 ring and a sport utility vehicle.
James Mekalian is suing Nichole Grazioli in Fresno County Superior Court, accusing her of fraud and deceit regarding the April meltdown of their four-year relationship, The Fresno (Calif.) Bee reported Wednesday.
Mekalian, 45, is trying to get back the diamond-studded engagement ring he gave Grazioli, 31, and a 2006 Hummer. There’s also the matter of nearly $1,000 in credit card bills she allegedly ran up after they broke up, and damages for emotional distress he claims in his suit, the newspaper said.
“He wants to get on with his life, but how can he?” Mekalian’s attorney, Zepure Attashian, told the newspaper. “He’s suffering because he doesn’t know if she really loved him or just loved the possessions he bought for her.”
