Michael Rotondo Called Police On His Dad Over Missing Lego Before Moving Out
He's the 30-year-old who attracted headlines for all the wrong reasons: Michael Rotondo launched legal action against his parents because they asked him several times to move out of their house..
The judge eventually sided with his parents and deemed their eviction notice legitimate, meaning the upstate New Yorker had to find his own place.
But as he moved out of home, he tried to have one last win.
According to the West Australian, police were called when Michael's dad refused to allow him to look for his young son's Lego set in the basement. Yes - the pettiest story just got pettier. Thankfully for all parties involved, the missing building block toys were found after police arrived on the scene.
Despite losing visitation rights to his son, Michael wanted the Lego set for his new life, which is believed to be at an AirBnB for now.
Rotondo was seen packing up his belongings on Thursday with the help of a cousin, after he was given a Friday deadline from the courts.
Having a bunch of reporters and camera crews outside your home as you are court ordered to move out is hard enough, but Michael's feelings were only made worse when the car he was using to transport his goods wouldn't start.
The Post-Standard of Syracuse reports that InfoWars radio host Alex Jones, who loves the odd conspiracy theory or two, has contributed $3,000 (£2,247) towards Rotondo's rent.
The senior Rotondos had previously offered him start-up cash to entice him to leave their home, but he refused their advances and told CNN that he thought they were more 'attacks' rather than genuine offers of assistance.
The family relationship is in tatters and Michael and his parents virtually said nothing to them after the court ruling, even though they've remained under the same roof. Talk about awkward.
"That's it. That's the end of my relationship with them other than court proceedings. There's nothing more to say," he told the Daily Mail.
Rotondo says that as he was moving out, they 'more or less' said goodbye to each other. The BBC reports that the 30-year-old believed that his parents were 'harrassing' him with small talk.
As Michael attracted worldwide fame, another bloke, who's name is also Michael Rotondo, as well as 30-years-old and lives in upstate New York was getting a lot of attention on social media. He had to keep telling people he wasn't the guy who was being forced out of his parent's basement.
