A student at Canada’s McGill University has won a lawsuit against his ex-girlfriend who tricked him into thinking he didn’t win a full ride scholarship for a prestigious music program.

The Montreal Gazette reports that Eric Abramavitz was accepted into the Colburn Conservatory of Music in Los Angeles in March 2014, but his girlfriend Jennifer Lee intercepted and deleted his acceptance email.

Lee also sent Abramovitz an email pretending to be clarinet teacher Yehuda Gilad, saying he had not been accepted for the scholarship.

Abramovitz discovered the ruse months later, after his relationship with Lee ended, when he auditioned in front of Gilad for a second time.

He adds that Lee did a similar thing involving fake emails with his successful application to the Juilliard School in New York, causing him to decline it.

In addition to winning $300,000 in general damages, an Ontario judge ordered Lee to pay $50,000 “for her despicable interference in Mr. Abramovitz’s career.”
