In the text messages officials recovered on his phone, Russell said she hoped he died and that he wasted her money.

"I see you wanna die," one of the messages read.

Russell is believed to have set fire to the only door in the house leading outside but the man luckily escaped through a window.

As for his furry family member, firefighters managed to get the four-legged friend out safe.

Social media users were both amused and stunned by Russell's actions.

Brendan Flynn commented: "Never disrespect the side piece lol wow."
Mick and Allen wrote: "I totally understand getting upset if someone invites you over for a booty call, you agree to it . . . and then they flake. But I'm not sure this is a proportionate response."
Katie Beaverhausen added: "I mean, that was a serious offense on his behalf. What do you think he was charged with, Angelina? Failure to appear? Fraud?"
