(Newser) – A woman who says a phone bill ruined her life is suing Canada's Rogers Wireless for $600,000. The 35-year-old complains that her cell phone records were bundled into the same bill when her husband signed up for Rogers home phone service—leading him to discover an affair she had recently ended and leave her and their children.

Rogers denies breaching the woman's privacy, and says it can't be held responsible for the end of the woman's marriage, the Telegraph reports. "The marriage breakup apparently resulted from the fact the plaintiff was having an extramarital affair, a fact admitted in the statement of claim,” reads the company’s court defense statement. “Rogers is not responsible for the plaintiff's affair or its consequences."
