    A Brooklyn mom says her daughter skipped town with her $1 million lottery jackpot — and now she’s being forced to sue to get back the fortune.

    “I felt like she stabbed me not in the back but right in the heart and twisted the knife,’’ mother Barbara Quiles, 51, told The Post on Tuesday.

    Quiles claims that she “authorized” her then-19-year-old daughter, Linza Ford, to cash the winning $5 scratch-off ticket in 2012 because she was “too sick’’ battling lupus and borderline diabetes, according to her Brooklyn Supreme Court lawsuit.

    “I’m the one who went out to buy the ticket with my money,’’ Quiles said. “I have a lot of witnesses.’’

    The mother claims that the duo entered into a contractual “lottery agreement” in which Ford agreed to claim the money while Quiles maintained full access to the winnings — which, after taxes, worked out to $31,152 a year for 20 years.

    “I felt that if I gave it to her to claim and if I [died], she would have access to split it between her two sisters,’’ Quiles said.

    But in an interview with The Post, Ford vehemently denied her mom’s claims, saying the ticket was all hers.

    “It was my ticket, signed by me,” Ford said. “I went to the office in the Bronx. She even went with me to claim the ticket.”

    Ford appeared at a New York Lottery event in December 2012, telling reporters she felt “wonderful and blessed” over the win and planned on using the cash to re-enroll in Hofstra University.

    The daughter says that the money was into her personal account — though her mother claims in her suit that she was supposed to have access to the money with a debit card,
    Quiles’ suit claims that in April 2014, her card stopped working.

    That same month, Quiles said that Ford just took off with the family’s terrier dog, Daisy.

    Ford, however, said her departure was due to her mother’s psychological problems.

    “Why I left had nothing to do with the ticket,” Ford said. “It had to do with her mental illness. If they knew her history they wouldn’t believe what she was saying about me.”

    Seven months after she left, Quiles said that the account had been closed — and that Ford had withdrawn the remaining cash before .

    Ford said the account was in her name and she was authorized to empty it. Meanwhile, Quiles said she’s mending a broken heart.

    “My daughter got married on Saturday, and I wasn’t even invited,” she said.

    It would suck to be so poor that a million taxable dollars was considered a huge sum of money :backlol:

    Why in the fuck would you take the annuity? Does this dumb bitch not realize that 31k a year now is different than 31k 20 yrs from now?

    Not that a 19 yo has any sense, and I'm sure she thought she was doing a practical thing by not taking the lump sum knowing she would blow it, but how about consulting someone?

    Jesus H Christ she'll be able to buy 1/2 as much with that 31k in 2035 than she could now. Essentially she agreed to let the state hold onto the money, make money off the interest and not give any of the interest to her.

    It's for the best. She's 19 and would probably blow the lump sum in one year.
