It was a onetime feel-good story about Bobbitt, who spent his last $20 to buy gas for McClure when she became stranded on a highway in Philadelphia, and the couple who found 14,000 people online who were so touched by his kindness that they donated to a fund to help him start a new life.

But Bobbit says the couple withheld most of that money from him.

Thursday's announcement is set for 2 p.m.
