Q: Do I legally have to give the gifts Back to my ex That he gave Me?
My boyfriend and I broke up and demanded that I send him everything back that he gave me including a laptop, stuffed plushes, and anything else. If I didn’t have it he says he wants the money back for those gifts. He lives in California I live in Idaho. He says will take me in front of a judge if I don’t give anything back. What can I do??
A: “Gifts” are gifts! You have NO legal responsibility to give back ANY gift he gave you. If he’s (petty and stupid) not careful he’ll don’t stupid things like shame you on social media or worse, post your intimate photos on social media, which is a crime called “voyeurism.”
