HV wife allegedly lied about leukemia to get free weddingPosted: Updated:
A Yonkers man says he is divorcing his wife after finding out that she lied about having a terminal illness so she could get a free wedding and honeymoon.
Michael O'Connell says that Jessica Vega lied when she told people that she had terminal leukemia with only one year left to live.
O'Connell and Vega received a free wedding in May, with a donated dress, flowers and more. They also took a honeymoon to Aruba, all of which was allegedly donated by people who were touched by Vega's story.
