A jilted husband is getting a multi-million payday from the man he says ruined his marriage.
Keith king tries desperately to speak to his wife Danielle while Francisco Huizar, the other man, won’t let him in.
Danielle can be heard in the background as she records the video.
“I don’t want this. I don’t want it to be like this,” Danielle said.
“Dani, why did you lie to me?” Keith said.
Keith didn’t get his marriage back but he’s been awarded nearly $9 million after a judge ruled his now ex-wife’s lover had to pay for the affair.
King took his case to court citing an unusual “alienation of affection” law only on the books in six states.
The law requires proof of a once happy marriage and evidence that shows the love and affection between the couple was destroyed by the wrongful or malicious actions of an outsider.
King gathered text messages, Facebook posts, hotel receipts and phone records dating back to when he says he first found out about the affair in 2015. He called a number he didn’t recognize that led to Huizar.
“When he answered, I simply said ‘she is a married woman. Do not contact her ever again,’” Keith said.
Huizar then rented a hotel room less than a mile from King’s home to continue the affair which was on and off through 2017. Even though he won in court, Keith admits the heartbreak was costly.
