An angry wife sold her cheating husband’s prized possessions in a Facebook live auction after he reportedly left her for a mistress.
The scorned woman – named as Jamille Margarita Galvez – flogged designer clothes and a collection of baseball caps in the revenge sale at knockdown prices.
Her live ‘fire sale’ reportedly went viral in the Philippines when she started selling her partner’s treasures on the social network.
Jamille is quoted in local media as saying (in Filipino): “Maybe, this is what God put in my mind, maybe to at least make up for it and also to pay for my children.”
The event on Facebook has reportedly made her famous in the country, not least due to the caption she used: “Live selling the possessions of the departed spouse.”
The caption in Filipino is reportedly a play on words (“sumakabilang-buhay”) that euphemistically implies that a person has passed away.
While she pedalled her husband’s wares, the woman humorously promised that everything was in tiptop condition and she was not selling any fakes, adding that it was just her husband who is a crook.
The items included Lacoste shirts, a USD-400 pair of ‘Adidas x Pharrell Williams Human Race NMD Breathe/Walk’ sports shoes, which were reportedly gifts from the man’s mistress.
Her post was also littered with humorous jabs aimed at her ex, including a caption that reportedly said in Filipino: “Caution: Buy at your own risk, these items are cursed! They will turn your boyfriend or husband into a certified cheater. The moment they wear it they immediately become ‘fuccbois’! With a bonus gambling addiction.”
Other clever captions included “all the items are decent, only the owner isn’t” and “none of these items are worn out, only his mistress is”.
Another said: “Reason for selling: A pig wore these. We’re taking out trash in this house!”
Jamille’s event was reportedly shared tens of thousands of times and her asking other scorned women to support her live stream and to share it may have had something to do with it.
Jamille, whose age was not reported, reportedly said that she made PHP 300,000 (EUR 5,250; GBP 4,420; USD 5,800) by selling her unnamed husband’s possessions.
It is currently unclear if she has filed for divorce.
