A homeless Brooklyn man is suing his parents and blaming them for his homeless status because they didn’t show him enough love while he was growing up. This lawsuit gets even more bizarre as this 32-year-old man also offers a very strange solution for the damage done to his siblings along with himself in his $200,000 lawsuit, according to the New York Daily News on Thursday, Feb. 21, 2011.
Bernard Anderson Bey is one of six siblings and he claims that his five brothers and sisters are all on public assistance. This is due to the way they were brought up by his parents he claims. To remedy this situation he wants his parents to mortgage their Bedford-Stuyvesant home and buy two Domino Pizza franchises so the entire family will have access to a job.
Bey claims in the lawsuit:
“Our whole family is really poor, and my father doesn’t care about the situation,” Bey said yesterday. “I feel unloved and abandoned.”
This self-filed lawsuit at the Brooklyn Supreme Court also states that his father beat him and called him names like “bastard” and “mother-f*cker.” He also claims that his father did drugs in front of Bey as a child, the statement conveys.
As for Bey’s mother, she said that she is afraid of her eldest son and she told the media that he’s 32 years old and “that speaks for itself.” She says at 32, you can’t keep blaming your parents for the choices you make in your adult life.
The father dismissed Bey’s lawsuit saying he’s not related to him, he is just his step-son and denied Bey’s accusations. A sister had a short sentence to explain her brother, she called him “crazy and a pathological liar.” The sister said she wasn’t on public assistance and her parents “were not terrible.” She went on to say that Bey choose the life he is leading today.
While Bey understands he is entitled to nothing from his parents legally, he thinks his lawsuit will give his father (step-father) the opportunity to help his kids get jobs if he does decide to take his suggestion of mortgaging their home and purchasing two Domino’s Pizza stores. He sees this as a chance for the father to help his family “break the bonds of poverty,” by buying the franchises.
