A software developer who claims he gave a bunch of his stuff to a stripper because they were in a "dating relationship" is suing for the return of, among other things, his collection of Harry Potter DVDs.

Robert Wallace, 32, says he broke up with exotic dancer Nomi Mims on May 3, and then waited a week for her to give him back the things he lent her—$2,000, a laptop, and the aforementioned DVDs—before taking legal action.

Mims says she "really likes him as a friend," and the items and cash were gifts, not loans.

"I don't believe in loans because I don't want to pay anybody back," she told FOX 26. "I've given him gifts too. You know, how do I get my booty and boobs back?"

"No refunds in the strip club," she added. "I've even had people come up in there asking, 'Oh, can I get a dance,' and they'll pay me back next week. We ain't got no layaway plans either."

It's tragic to see a loving, genuine connection between people come to such a bitter end.

"I did kind of see it possibly ending this way," Wallace said.
