Michael Rotondo, the 30-year-old USA man who made worldwide news when he refused to leave his parents' house, has finally been evicted, bringing to an end weeks of speculation about why the hell a grown-ass 30-year-old man was fighting so hard to stay living with his folks in the first place.
Michael Rotondo became a well-known name in May after his parents asked a court to help them evict him, after he ignored multiple letters asking him to leave, including offering him US$1,100 to help find an apartment.
According to the Syracuse.com report, Rotondo moved all of his belongings from the home, including a Volkswagon Passat that had been sitting in his parents' driveway, untouched for months. The Post-Standard of Syracuse reports Rotondo called 911 on Tuesday, saying a person had called his phone from a restricted number to call him a "loser".
Michael Rotondo loaded up a pickup truck with several garbage bags and moved out. Instead of letting him in, his father offered to look for specific items and bring them out if he found them. The Legos were found after police arrived.
"I'm glad to be out of this place", Rotondo said Thursday.More news: Lionel Messi thanks Argentina fans for support despite Spain thrashing
Adding to the confusion is the "other" Rotondo is also looking for a home, though it's in California and he's doing it with the support of his parents.
During his vehicle trouble, he told reporters he said goodbye "more or less" to his parents before jumping into his rumbling station wagon. The judge called this request "outrageous", at which point Rotondo called the judge "outrageous" right back.
Greenwood ruled in favour of Rotondo's parents, Mark and Christina, setting into motion the 30-year-old's eviction. "I don't have to guess what's behind Door No. 1".
According to Rotondo, he is now battling for custody of his son, having lost custody and unsupervised visitation rights in 2017.
