Judge Has to Order 30-Year-Old Man to Move Out of His Parents’ House

A 30-year-old has lost his court battle against his parents after a judge ruled that he does, in fact, have to move out of their house.

This story is wild, but actually a bit more serious than people might first believe.

We've included a video from the courthouse, but that only tells part of the story.


The video that we have included gives only some highlights of the case.

The full back-and-forth between State Supreme Court Justice Donald Greenwood and Michael Rotondo lasted approximately a half hour.

Though the judge ordered that Rotondo would have to move out, he also ordered that Adult Protective Services investigate the situation.

To a degree, perhaps Judge Greenwood was simply doing his due diligence in a case involving family members at home.

But it is clear to anyone watching this case that something is … not right.

It began when Rotondo's parents offered to help him to find an apartment and even offered him money, giving him over $ 1,000 … which he then used on "expenses" without moving.

Following that, they stopped paying for his phone and … well, they ended up in court.

Rotondo 01

Since first being reported, the Rotondo story has been picked up by New York Post, Fox News, the BBC, and The Late Late Show with James Corden.

Greenwood praised Rotondo's legal research after Rotondo pointed to a prior case in which it was determined that a family member had the right to six months between being served with an eviction and actually being required to leave.

This period of time is designed so that someone can make enough money to secure new housing. There are all sorts of eviction laws to cover many situations.

Greenwood patiently explained to Rotondo that there is an appellate court case that establishes that, in short, the case that Rotondo cited does not apply to his particular family situation.

Rotondo referred to the judge's ruling as "outrageous."

Judge Greenwood referred to Rotondo's demand that he be allowed to remain as being similarly "outrageous."

Rotondo 02

Though the judge urged Rotondo to speak to his parents, Mark and Christina, and reach an amicable arrangement, Rotondo refused.

After the court ruling, Rotondo spoke to the press who had gathered.

Rotondo says that there have not been any "incidents" between him and his parents. In fact, he says that they effectively do not speak with each other.

He says that they do not provide him with food or with laundry, but that they do provide him with a residence.

He describes getting food in the kitchen as being similar to a buffet line, and that he waits for his parents to vacate the room before cooking his own meals.

When asked what he does to support himself, Rotondo says that he has a business, but refused to identify it, instead saying:

"My business is my business."

After speaking to the press, he returned to his parents' house. He plans to attempt to appeal the ruling.

Rotondo 03

Here is why this is serious.

Rotondo has a son, of whom he does not have custody.

From our understanding, it looks like he has attempted to sue for custody on the grounds that not having custody is discrimination against him, as a "poor person."

It seems that he fears that accepting money from his parents and having his own residence, while normally things that would make a person seem like a more viable parent, would undercut his bid for custody.

If your parents are just handing you over $ 1,000, it's kind of hard to argue that you're impoverished.

Another cause for worry is that Rotondo has a 2009 arrest for allegedly stalking a woman at her home.

Rotondo 04

Many have speculated that Rotondo may have certain unresolved … issues.

But obviously, he is in no way representative of most people who live at home.

With two decades of wage stagnation while rent and housing prices continue to climb, it is increasingly difficult for even employed adults to find housing.

Though a lot of media attention to the Rotondo case has likely been due to older generations finding amusement at the idea of a man so accustomed to being pampered that he'd rather go to court than move out, there's more going on here.

And, again, there are plenty of young adults who would love nothing more than to move out … and would be happy to, if they started making a living wage.

We hope that Rotondo's story has a happy ending. Perhaps APS will be able to assist Rotondo by connecting him to whichever resources he needs.

Abby Lee Miller: I Have to Get My Affairs in Order

Last week, Abby Lee Miller spoke out about her cancer diagnosis. 

Now, a report describes her response to being diagnosed with this fast-spreading lymphoma right after her release from prison.

She is apparently preparing herself for the worst. This is so sad.

Abby Lee Miller in Tears

RadarOnline‘s insider reports on how Abby Lee Miller is coping with her prognosis. And … it almost sounds like she’s given up.

Apparently, after being diagnosed with Burkitt lymphoma, the former Dance Moms star “been getting her business affairs in order.”

“Abby Lee’s deciding who gets what in her will.”

And some of her decisions may surprise you.

“She made a few friends in prison and she’d like to reward them.”

That sounds incredibly generous of her. She’s a millionaire, and even a small percentage of her wealth could transform multiple people’s lives.

Naturally, no one wants for her to die. Least of all Miller herself.

“It’s a very sad, scary time for Abby Lee.”

We would imagine so.

More than anything, it sounds like Miller feels isolated. Probably from having just gotten out of prison and living in a halfway house.

“She’s never felt so alone!”

Illness and incarceration can be two of the most isolating experiences in the world. And Miller is experiencing them both, back-to-back.

“Abby Lee’s trying to stay strong but she can’t get through the day without crying.”

That is sad, but more than understandable.

“She doesn’t seem to think there’s much hope.”

We’ll get into that at the moment. She should have hope.

“She’s strong, but not good.” The insider describes her cancer, saying: “It’s bad and very aggressive.”

Miller recently shared this graphic post-op photo of her back.

“She is devastated because she has just been released, and now this.”

it’s not good timing.

“She feels cursed.”

Okay, everybody who cursed her, take it back. You’re not in trouble.

“From what I understand, she is getting her affairs in order.”

As already mentioned, she’s planning on leaving things to specific people.

“She has no family. Everything will go to her close inner circle.”

It really sounds like she’s giving in to despair.

“She doesn’t think she is going to make this.”

Abby Lee Miller Weeps

In addition to of course worrying for Miller’s life, one may be wondering how this will impact the remainder of her sentence — which she is serving at a halfway house.

“Abby Lee’s medical situation may require her to stay in the hospital for at least another month.”

However, the insider expects that she won’t have to then go to the halfway house.

Miller “she will likely not have to make up the time.”

Her release date from the halfway house was intended to be May 25.

It sounds like the penal system is expected to be understanding, given the circumstances.

“Being hospitalized with severe and aggressive cancer is far worse than having to eat bad food and hang out with newly released prisoners all day long.”

It’s not like being in a hospital is the same as running free.

Abby Lee Miller Screams

It is always sensible to have a plan in place for your estate, especially if you have a health concern.

But we hope that this will be unnecessary for Miller.

Burkitt lymphoma is more common in children, where the success rate for defeating the cancer is about 90%.

Abby Lee Miller is an adult, where this particular lymphoma is rarer and has a lower success rate, but to our knowledge, this isn’t a death sentence.

Is this a fast-growing cancer? Yes. But fast-growing cancers are also generally faster to respond to chemo and radiation therapies.

She needs to focus on her recovery with an optimistic attitude. Giving in to despair against cancer is a recipe for defeat.

We hope that she makes a full, swift recovery.

A judge continued the Monday, April 2, court hearing for Teen Mom OG star Maci Bookout’s order of protection from Ryan Edwards until May 21, Radar Online reports.

“The temporary protection order will stay in effect until their court hearing,” a clark of court for Hamilton County Circuit Court in Tennessee told Radar.

Us Weekly confirmed on Thursday, March 29, that Bookout, 26, filed for an order of protection against Edwards, 30. The MTV personality’s order included herself and her three children: 9-year-old Bentley, with whom she shares with Edwards, and her two kids with husband Taylor McKinney, Jayde, 2, and Maverick, 22 months. McKinney, 28, also filed for an order of protection against his wife’s ex-boyfriend.

According to the court documents obtained by Radar, Bookout accused Edwards of leaving her threatening voicemails. “He has made threats to show up and hurt me if I don’t answer my phone,” the docs read.

Bookout also claimed in the documents that Edwards threatened her at Bentley’s baseball game in May 2017. Bookout said Edwards “showed up under the influence of heroin and got in my face, yelling and threatening to hurt me.”

News of Bookout’s filing came just days after Edwards was arrested for violating his probation related to a previous heroin possession case. The reality star was arrested in his Tennessee home on Tuesday, March 27, and was released on a $ 5,000 bond that night. The day before Edwards was arrested, MTV revealed that he is expecting his first child with his wife, Mackenzie Standifer.

Celebrities Who Have Been to Rehab

A source spoke to Us on Friday, March 30, about how Bookout “guards the kids” amid the drama.

“Maci will always protect the kids as she should and needs to,” the source explained, adding that the drama with Edwards was discussed at the upcoming Teen Mom OG reunion, which taped last month.

Teen Mom OG airs on MTV Mondays at 9 p.m. ET.

Maci Bookout is taking action. The Teen Mom OG star has filed for an order of protection against ex-boyfriend Ryan Edwards.

According to the docket on the Hamilton County Circuit Court’s website, there are two orders of protection filed against Edwards. The first lists Bookout’s husband, Taylor McKinney, vs. Edwards. The second lists 26-year-old Bookout herself and her three children — Bentley, 9, Jayde, 2, and Maverick, 22 months — vs. Edwards. The MTV personality shares son Bentley with Edwards, and her two youngest with McKinney.

A judge is set to hear the cases on Monday, April 2.

Teen Mom Stars, Then and Now

While it’s unclear when Bookout and her husband filed the orders of protection, 30-year-old Edwards found himself in legal trouble on Tuesday, March 27, when he was arrested at his Tennessee home. Red Bank City police confirmed that he was arrested for violating his probation, which was related to a previous heroin possession case. A spokesperson for the Hamilton County Jail told Radar Online that he bonded out at 10:15 p.m. the same day.

Edwards has previously admitted to heroin use in the past, and completed a stay in rehab in May 2017. He made the decision to seek treatment after MTV’s cameras caught him nodding off behind the wheel as he was driving to his wedding to Mackenzie Standifer. The network aired the incident during a 2017 episode of Teen Mom OG, and during another episode in December, 21-year-old Standifer claimed that he was spending $ 10,000 a week on drugs.

“There have been major concerns about Ryan’s sobriety,” a source close to the hit docuseries previously told Us Weekly, noting that the subject is a major topic in the reunion episodes scheduled to air in April. “Ryan needed more inpatient treatment, longer than what he previously got.”

Celebrity Drug Confessions

But it hasn’t been all bad news for Edwards this week. After the Monday, March 26, episode of Teen Mom OG, MTV aired a teaser for the April 2 episode, which revealed that Edwards and his wife are expecting their first child together. Standifer is also the mom of Hudson, 4, whom she shares with ex-husband Zachary Stephens.

Audrina Patridge Speaks Out After Requesting New Restraining Order

Even at her most alarmed, Audrina Patridge is a quick thinker. On March 5, as estranged husband Corey Bohan launched into yet another rant outside California’s Irvine Police Department, where they’d been exchanging 21-month-old daughter Kirra since their sudden September split, the reality star reached for her phone.

Stealthily, she captured his every last horrifying word. “Corey threatened me directly,” she would later write in a court filing, “saying, ‘You better start f–king playing nice. I’m f–king warning you,’ pointing at me while he spoke.” The encounter left her shaken. As she confessed in the report, “I am frightened by Corey’s escalation of his anger and threats.”

Now she’s laying down some demands of her own. Two days after the confrontation, The Hills alum, 32, filed papers requesting that the temporary domestic violence restraining order in place since their split become permanent — and that the Australian BMX racer, 36, be stripped of all rights and visitation of their daughter. (His attorneys asked for her request to be denied.)

Noting Bohan has been violating the protection order by stalking her on social media, making disparaging comments in front of Kirra and tossing out thinly veiled threats, the Prey Swim designer wrote, “I am more afraid of him now than ever, and fear for the safety of our daughter Kirra when she is in his care.”

After all, the well-being of her toddler is Patridge’s top priority. “My main focus is raising and protecting my daughter,” she tells Us Weekly in her first comments since the filing. “I’m in mom mode every day and trying to get through this.”

Her accusations are disturbing. In her request, Patridge reveals Bohan has taken to telling Kirra, “Mommy doesn’t pick you up anymore because she’s an L.A. party girl,” referencing press obligations she’s had in California and Miami. She also alleges he’s often “openly hostile” during their handoffs, one time even swerving his car “dangerously close” to her sister.

But a source insists that’s just a sliver of what she’s had to deal with. Following their split, Bohan ransacked the Orange County home they once shared, says the source, taking Patridge’s wedding ring and other belongings and leaving emotional trauma in their place: “He ripped out pages of her journal and left it on the nightstand. And put up prom pictures of her with other guys.”

That move, says a Patridge insider, is emblematic of their biggest issue. Throughout their nine-year on-off romance — the pair split three times before their November 2016 vows — “there’s always been jealousy,” says the insider. “He’s very charismatic, but flips the switch easily and is super controlling.”

For years, says the insider, Patridge held out hope their relationship could remain on an upswing, but after having Kirra, the devoted mom realized she needed to leave: “She didn’t want her daughter to be brought up in that environment.”

Nor does she want her subjected to Bohan’s erratic emotions. “Audrina’s ultimate goal is to have full custody of Kirra and have Corey get the anger management classes that he needs,” says the insider. As for Patridge, who’s been leaning on family and checking in with former costars Heidi Montag and Kristin Cavallari, she just wants to keep her distance. “She’s stronger now,” says the insider, “and wants to move on with her life.”
