Kate McClure and her boyfriend, Mark D'Amico launched a GoFundMe campaign, after homeless veteran, Johnny Bobbitt Jr gave her his last $20 to buy petrol to get home when she was in a crisis.

A judge ordered a New Jersey couple Thursday to give a homeless Philadelphia man whatever's left of the $400,000 they raised for him.

They reportedly added that they're wary of giving Bobbitt large sums of cash all at once because of the fear he'll use it to buy drugs.

Meanwhile, D'Amico said that Bobbitt spent $25,000 of they money they did give him on drugs in the span of two weeks in December. It raised more than US$400,000 in funds donated by more than 14,000 people.

"They took time out of their own schedules, their own jobs, brought him to rehab centers... gave him cash on a daily basis".

McClure and D'Amico raised almost $403,000 on GoFundMe starting late past year to buy Bobbitt, among other things, his own home and "dream" truck: a 1999 Ford Ranger.

Their lawyer argued in court that Mr Bobbitt had received more than $200,000 from the fund.

After the fundraiser ended, McClure and D'Amico set up appointments with attorneys and financial advisers for Bobbitt, but he "never showed up", Badway said.

In an interview with NBC's Megyn Kelly Today, McClure called Bobbitt "family" and said that she worked tireless hours to get together the documents for Bobbitt to open his own bank account.

Badway said Bobbitt requested that the vehicles be put in McClure's name.

"From what I can see, the GoFundMe account raised $402,000 and GoFundMe charged a fee of approximately $30,000", Bobbitt's lawyer Chris Fallon told CNN on August 25.

Johnny Bobbitt spent his last $20 on gas for Kate McClure when she was stuck on I-95 in Kensington previous year.

"He's really left us with no choice but to go forward", Fallon told Philly.com. He said he paid it back with money he won.

Bobbitt's pro bono lawyers filed a complaint on Tuesday alleging that McClure and D'Amico have misused the funds and spent a substantial amount of the money for themselves.

During an appearance on USA television on Monday, D'Amico revealed there is well over $150,000 left of the donations.

D'Amico and McClure could not be immediately reached for comment. "Write what you want", he told the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The couple have denied the accusations and told the Today show on August 27 that they feared giving cash to Bobbitt after he spent $25,000 in less than two weeks.

McClure began to cry when Kelly asked about the death threats the couple had received since the Inquirer story published over the weekend.

The pair denied Bobbitt's allegations, claiming the money already given to him was spent on drugs, overdue legal bills and dispersed to his family members.

The judge also demanded that McClure and D'Amico provide a full accounting of each dollar they collected, the station reported.
