- A New York man is suing his parents for not loving him enough
- He wants $200,000 in compensation
- He claims he ran away from home at the age of 12 because of abuse
A 32-year-old man in New York, US, is suing his parents for $200,000 because they have not been loving and supportive enough to him.
Bernard Bey, an aspiring rapper, blames his parents for his current homelessness.
In an interview, he claimed that he ran away from home at the age of 12 after enduring physical and emotional abuse. He has been in and out of the shelter system over the past 12 years.
In his court application, he further claimed he has spent some time in jail and that his parents are responsible for all his tribulations.
Bernard therefore wants his parents to mortgage their home to enable him start a business, such as a Domino's Pizza franchise. This is in addition to the $200,000 compensation.
I don’t feel like my parents love me, they aren’t supportive, they’re emotionally abusive, verbally abusive. We don’t have a family bond that a family should have.
However, Bernard's mother disputed his claims. She said they don't have money and their house is partly owned, which means they can't take a mortgage on it. She urged Bernard to get a job.
