They say that ‘hell hath no fury like a woman scorned,‘ and the age-old adage rang true for famous clarinet player Eric Abramovitz, who had become quite known already at age 20 as one of Canada’s aspiring talents. And thus, he applied for a prestigious scholarship in Los Angeles, Mr Abramovitz was surprised to receive a rejection letter.

Two years later only did he discover that the letter he received was not sent by the school itself, but by his (now) scorned ex-girlfriend, who had faked it as an official document from the school in order to stop him from leaving Montreal.

At the time, as she comforted him as he received the rejection, she convinced him to stay in Canada.

As he found out the truth afterwards, he sued her in court for ‘career sabotage.’ Earlier this week, an Ontario superior court judge ruled that Mr Abramovitz had a case in point and that his former girlfriend, Miss Jennifer Lee, should pay him C$375,000 for “despicable interference” in a critically important career opportunity.

Justice Mr David Corbett ruled: “One hears, particularly in the arts, of the ‘big breaks’ that can launch a promising artist to a stratospheric career. I cannot speculate as to how high and how quickly Mr Abramovitz’s career might have soared, but for the interference by Ms Lee.”

Mr Abramovitz claimed he was happy with the ruling although “to find out it was the person who I had trusted the most and loved, was a simultaneous stab to the back and the heart.”

“It was a very crushing feeling. I was so driven and really wanted it. I was very disappointed about it and feeling down after I got the rejection.”
