Cheryl Gray, a 50-year-old woman from Michigan, is suing former flame Wylie Iwan, a 35-year-old Applebee’s employee from Washington, for “misrepresentation, promissory estoppel, defamation of character, and intentional infliction of emotional distress,” reports CNET.

A game of Mafia Wars brought the two together. They started out as friends, but their relationship blossomed into a real-life love affair with the pair spending hours a day online chatting, Gray said. She claims she showered Iwan with gifts and bought tickets to fly out to Seattle to see him.

But their relationship was short-lived and turned ugly after Wylie Iwan told Cheryl Gray he met someone else. The two have had a series of exchanges on Facebook, with each posting “nasty things” about the other, including money Gray says she’s entitled to the things she gave Iwan, plus that Seattle trip she never took that cost her $956.88.

Cheryl Gray is now taking legal action for the emotional distress the Facebook relationship is causing her and asking for $8,386.88 in return.
