Mafia Wars for Facebook
It would appear that so much in this our brave new age, begins and ends with the ubiquitous Facebook—even love found and subsequently lost.

Cheryl Gray, a 50 year-old woman from Michigan, is suing quondam flame Wylie Iwan from Washington State, after their relationship soured on Facebook.

Gray, an unemployed paralegal, is suing the 35 year-old Applebee’s employee for "misrepresentation, promissory estoppels, defamation of character, and intentional infliction of emotional distress." She is seeking $8,386.88.

"I feel foolish. I'm not so much mad or angry. I feel foolish. I am disillusioned," Gray said.

The couple first met playing “Mafia Wars” on Facebook. The dynamic quickly escalated to an online relationship, where the amorous couple would spend hours chatting via the World Wide Web. 

"We spent an hour plus in the morning online and three, four, five, eight hours at night every day," Gray said.

But alas, mighty Aphrodite ostensibly did not approve, as the relationship took a downward trajectory once Iwan admitted that he had met someone else. Initially, Iwan said Gray accepted the news, yet later started a Facebook hate group about him.

Subsequently, the pair quarreled on the very public avenue that is Facebook, even resorting to posting unpleasant things about the other on their respective walls for all to see.

Iwan has retained attorney Julian Poota, who filed a motion to dismiss.

"I want this lady to move on and leave me alone. It's a completely frivolous lawsuit," Iwan stated.

Both sides are scheduled to convene in Livonia, Michigan’s 16th district court regarding the motion to dismiss on August 1st.
