After eight months of jailhouse romance, Steven Avery, the Wisconsin convict made famous by the Netflix documentary Making a Murderer, last week asked Lynn Hartman, 53, a legal assistant from Las Vegas, to marry him. Now it appears the wedding plans have been canceled.
Dr. Phil is scheduled to run interview with Avery and Hartman today and tomorrow.
Sandra Greenman, Avery’s ex-fiancee who’s been visiting him in jail for the past 11 years, reported the breakup on Facebook. She wrote that Avery believes Hartman is a “golddigger” [sic] and that “she has been in this relationship for money and publicity. His eyes are finally opened!”
Greenman further elaborated [words are written as they appear in the post]: “Steve called me two times tonight and wants everyone to know that Lynn and him are done. She has been in this relationship for money and publicity. His eyes are finally opened!!! Lynn received at least 5000.00 dollars from Dr Phil, and he thinks more. She got another 1000.00 for doing other shows. She also wanted to be on as many as possible. His words-she is a golddigger. He wants someone to contact Dr Phil before Mon. show annd [sic] let him know she was only in the relationship for money. I checked and doublechecked with him to make very sure he wanted this put on and he said very much so.”
Hartman has since responded on Facebook, writing that the allegations of money-seeking against her are false and were written “by Steve’s ex-companion who has become notorious for her lies and her many crazy articles.”
Avery himself is yet to comment. Stay tuned!
