Michael Rotondo, the 30-year-old man ordered by a judge to leave his parents’ home in upstate New York, has tried to explain why he has no job.
In an interview with Business Insider, Rotondo, of Camillus, a town about 10 miles west of Syracuse, said that he was concentrating on parenthood.
“I’ve been a father for the past few years,” he told the website. “That’s what I’ve been doing. I really haven’t been pursuing a career.”
He added that he had been “working here and there, doing things, but mostly being a father.”
That is despite the fact that he has lost visitation rights to meet with the child.
Since then, he told Business Insider, his parents “have been trying to coerce me away” and had stopped feeding him. He said the notice to vacate that led to Tuesday’s court case was “a retaliatory action” for losing his visitation rights.
“I was an excellent father,” Rotondo claimed, saying he had taken his child fishing and skiing. “I was a great father, and [the child] needed me in their life.
“That’s why I’m not the CEO of a big company,” he added. “That’s why I’m living with my parents still.”
