30-year-old leaves parents' home with help from Alex Jones

Michael Rotondo, the 30-year-old NY man who famously was ordered by a judge to move out of his parents' house, is apparently complying with the court's ruling, but apparently it's not going well.

Rotondo's cousin reportedly helped him move out of his parents' NY home Friday morning. Rotondo told the judge Tuesday he knows his parents want him out of their Camillus home, near Syracuse.

Rotondo had avoided TV crews staked out on the upstate NY road earlier Friday morning by leaving from the back, but returned around 9:30 a.m.in the passenger seat of a pickup truck.

"Rotondo said he called the cops because he believed his son's Legos were in the basement and his dad - who is evicting him - wouldn't let him look for them". Instead, his father offered to look for the Lego and bring it out to him. They told a judge they'd given him five written notices asking him to leave and offering financial assistance if he moved out. "Get one - you have to work!" said one letter. Michael Rotondo expressed relief Friday morning as he left his parents' home in Camillus.

In a brief phone interview with CNN, Michael Rotondo said he left the house because "I had to be out by today".


Officers arrived and the Lego bricks were found in the meantime, the newspaper said.

His parents say their son had lived in their home rent-free for the last eight years.

Rotondo will apparently spend the next week living in an Airbnb in Syracuse, New York, before moving in with a distant cousin. "I don't have to guess what's behind Door No. 1".

Michael, who lost custody of his son in September, said the family feud is related to his parents seeking visitation rights to their grandson, which he's fought tooth and nail.

Rotondo earned global infamy as he became a punchline for what many think is wrong with his generation. Asked if that marks a dramatic change in his thinking, given his recent hard-fought court battle, Rotondo answered succinctly.
