The price of love: British man says Pinay girlfriend robbed him 6 times

You gotta hand it to him for having staying power.

How many times can you forgive someone for breaking your heart...and stealing your cash? For one guy, five was the magic number. The sixth time had him rushing to the police.


Aie Balagtas See of The Philippine Star reports that Stevenson Peter, a 67-year-old British national, reported his girlfriend of four years, Angela Joy Lopez, to the Manila Police District (MPD) on Sunday, May 4. He’ll charge her with theft.


According to the story, Peter had said, "That lady is not a good one. I even brought her to Palawan and Boracay but she took my money and my tablet. She’s done it to me on six different occasions. I'm fed up."


In her latest shady move, Lopez had allegedly taken £600 from Peter’s wallet.


Then, Lopez had said goodbye to Peter while he having breakfast at the Malate hotel they had checked into. Peter said he thought Lopez was going to come back. He put two and two together (so to speak) when he went back to their hotel room and saw that his wallet had been emptied.
