A Bronx native will take the money after she won half of the $648 million Mega Millions jackpot — and her sisters back home say they’re going to run.

Georgia resident Ira Curry, 56, has come forward as one of the two winners who will take home a massive chunk of the lottery windfall.

Curry’s siblings told The News they’re thrilled for Curry, but worried about the sudden attention. By Wednesday afternoon, the frantic sisters were making rushed plans to move, possibly even out of state.

“We’re happy, but look at where we live,” said Brenda Baker, motioning to the public housing building. “Our lives could be in jeopardy. It’s happy, it’s joyous, but we have to protect ourselves.”

    I would’ve made plans to move BEFORE even claiming the ticket.

  • Why are they moving?
    Does George Zimmerman live there?
    I’m sure that none of our people would kill each other over this money, right?
    Lol fools.
    You can’t trust a n***a when money is involved.
