Friends: Lottery-Winning Duck Is ‘Out of Touch’
Things changed for Bentley when he won $16 million in the state lottery drawing last September. He quickly upgraded from a modest one bedroom to a luxury duplex in the hills. It wasn’t long before he developed a taste for the finer things.
“There’s nothing wrong with enjoying the niceties,” says Jessie Blom, a former friend. “But what does he need tufted Egyptian cotton bath towels for? He’s a duck — the water should roll right off.”
It’s those little things that worry friends — perhaps Bentley has lost touch with his roots. “He’s really changed,” says Ericka Nebel, a family friend. “I’m not sure we have much in common anymore.”
