A homeless man sued his parents for $200,000 because they “didn’t love him enough”.
A Brooklyn man sued his mom and dad with a $200,000 lawsuit that blames them for leaving him homeless and destitute because they allegedly raised him and his sibling in a poor household — and didn’t love him enough.
Bernard Anderson Bey, 32, claims he never got enough affection or support from parents Vickie and Bernard Manley — so now he wants them to mortgage their share of a Bedford-Stuyvesant home so their family can buy two Domino’s Pizza franchises to employ them all, according to the bizarre suit.
“Our whole family is really poor, and my father doesn’t care about the situation,” Bey said yesterday. “I feel unloved and abandoned.”
Bey claims in the self-filed Brooklyn Supreme Court suit that as a child his father beat him, called him “bastard” and “motherf–ker” and did drugs right in front of him.
“Defendant Bernard Manley informed the plaintiff he was entitled to nothing, which is true,” Bey wrote in the suit. “I am not entitled to receive anything from an asset he owns. I only thought he might find pleasure in seeing his children become successful.”
Bey’s mother, Vickie Anderson, said yesterday she was scared of her eldest son.
“I live in the projects. You want to sue me? What’s next, you coming to shoot up my door?” the mother said sadly.
“He’s 32 years old. That speaks for itself. Welcome to America. Everyone in America has the same opportunity. Don’t blame the parents at this point. The choice is yours. You’re an adult.”
Manley said Bey was his stepson and dismissed the suit. “He’s not related to me. He’s not my son,” Manley said.
While Bey claimed each of his five younger siblings are on public assistance because of their parents’ neglect, a sister called him “crazy” and “a pathological liar.”
“I’m not on public assistance. My parents were not terrible. They did the best they could. He chose the life he’s leading now.”
In the Brooklyn Supreme Court suit, Bey said he demanded his parents mortgage their share in the home part-owned by the father so their family can “break the bonds of poverty” by buying two franchises like Domino’s.
Bey wrote the suit on a laptop in the Downtown Brooklyn homeless shelter where he flops.
The ne’er-do-well said he has been arrested on drug charges in the past but is trying to turn his life around and now attends an automotive trade school.
