Oracle's Charles Phillips might call it stalking.

In a tale of love meets obsession, Wilkins took it upon herself to plaster three cities with compromising billboards of the two together in better times.

"You are my soulmate forever!" read one.

"Charles & YaVaughnie," read another.

Sweet, huh?

Trouble is that Phillips, president of the software giant Oracle, was married to his wife, Karen, during Phillips' eight-and-a-half-year extramarital affair with Wilkins.

When Wilkins learned Phillips was reconciling with his wife, she decided to get even, reports the New York Post. Wilkins spent close to $250,000 on the revenge.

She developed a website and put a billboard in New York's Time Square, one in Atlanta, and one in San Francisco, where Oracle is based.

And it worked. In a statement Thursday, Phillips admitted the affair. "I had an eight-and-a-half-year serious relationship with YaVaughnie Wilkins," Mr. Phillips said. "My divorce proceedings began in 2008... The relationship with Ms. Wilkins has since ended and we both wish each other well."

It's one affair, that won't soon be forgotten.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? Did YaVaughnie Wilkins do the right thing or go too far?
