A judge ruled this week that a 30-year-old man must move out of his parents home.
Michael Rotondo was ordered to vacate the home of his New York parents after they served him five notices.
The drama landed the family in the court system, where Michael lost to his parents and must now move out after eight years of free living.
In a surreal interview, Rotondo told CNNs Brooke Baldwin on Wednesday that he did not want to live with his parents but he cant get his own place because he has not money or job.
“Its very tense, its very awkward. We have to, you know, we have to share space, which may be the case where I would find myself afterwards, but Id prefer to get out,” Rotondo said, “I would consider much of what they were doing to try to get me out as attacks.”
The CNN host asked, “Why dont you just move out of your parents house — like tomorrow?”
Rotondo said, “I dont have the means to do that tomorrow,” noting he also did not have a job.
“I have plans to be able to provide myself with the income, I need to support myself, but its not something thats going to come together tomorrow,” Rotondo said. “I do want to leave and I want to leave as soon as possible but its not tomorrow. I dont think it should have to be tomorrow.”
The host asked if Rotondo wanted a life. “Do you not want relationships, boyfriend, girl friend, friendship, space, not shared walls with mom and dad?”
“I do want those things,” Rotondo said, adding that he does not want to reconcile with his parents.
When pressured by Baldwin if this is an “entitled” millennial generation problem, Rotondo said “Im a very conservative person. The millennials that theyre speaking to are very liberal in their ideology.”
“Youre 30, so technically I think you are part of the millennial generation,” Baldwin said.
