Under Georgia law, probably not - it most likely would be looked at as a gift. But there are rarely black and white answers in the law and I don't know the circumstances of the breakup and whether that would be relevant.

Legally, you may not have to. Morally is a different issue. There are cases that go either way, but ultimately unless he sues, it's your call.
